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 Temple 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.
Temple enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge her intellectually. Shirley Temple likes to show off her verbal or intellectual skills and to use her mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other display of her creative intelligence appeal to her.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Temple is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, she prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components.Shirley Temple has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Shirley Temple also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Shirley presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Shirley Temple excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas concretely. Shirley Temple should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Temple's mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Shirley Temple may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Shirley Temple possesses excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Temple gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion and is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. She is well-suited to any work that requires organized thinking, precision and a methodical approach. She enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive or technical. Shirley Temple tends to become a specialist in a given field of knowledge and to become engrossed in all of the small details involved, sometimes unaware that only few people share her particular interest, especially to the extent that she does.
Although Shirley Temple's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Temple can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
She is open and receptive to subjects that defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy and metaphysics, and Temple could teach these subjects to others. Her mind is imaginative and inspired and Shirley Temple has an aptitude for art and creative writing.
Shirley Temple has a charming disposition and loves to socialize and meet new people. Temple also likes to be surrounded by beautiful things and likes to talk to others about her views on love relationships problems as well as her views on beauty, fashion and art in general.
Her sense of reality seems a bit distorted and Temple tends to always think the worst. Her attitude toward the world is rather pessimistic and Shirley Temple places too much importance on matters that really are not important and ignores the ones that are.
