mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, she is always eager to express her ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Shirley has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, she is interested in another new idea or project. Shirley MacLaine never seems to have enough time to do everything she wants. She is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things she believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if she honestly does not. She may be somewhat lacking in tact.
She is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving feedback, and sharing information. Shirley MacLaine is drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom she can communicate and from whom she can learn. Shirley loves to have an audience to hear her ideas, and she also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
Shirley MacLaine has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, MacLaine likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Shirley MacLaine naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of her theories or insights are not really MacLaine's concern. Her "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to MacLaine. She is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When she is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Shirley MacLaine to keep it to herself. She has a bit of the evangelist in her.
