She is a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, relationships and problems of others.

She has a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires and other things that are meaningful to them. Sophia Crawford could be an excellent interviewer, reporter or biographer.

Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Sophia Crawford often finds it hard not to speak out.
Sophia Crawford has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and she loves a vigorous discussion or debate. She expresses her thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style.

Independent and freethinking, Sophia Crawford dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Sophia insists on discovering her own truth. Sophia Crawford does well in a rather unstructured environment that allows her to make her own decisions and to respond to the needs of the moment, rather than following a routine, standardized way of doing things.

Even though Crawford can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), she also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind.

The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Crawford's thinking.
Her mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Crawford sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not Crawford's forte. At times she is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Sophia Crawford apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others.
