mental interests and abilities
Woody Allen possesses vision and foresight, and his mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. He is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Allen is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and he is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. He is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Woody to deal with details and particulars. Woody Allen has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to him.
Woody has an introspective turn of mind and may enjoy keeping a journal or a record of his dreams and personal experiences, or learning about psychology, history, and the inner workings and emotional foundations of his own life.Allen is studious and something of a bookworm.
He enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Allen is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, he prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components.Woody Allen has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Woody Allen also has a talent for teaching and sharing his knowledge, and as a teacher, Woody presents himself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
He may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Woody Allen excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but he is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing his ideas concretely. Woody Allen should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in his life and work.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Allen's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Woody Allen may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Woody Allen has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to his careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Woody Allen has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Allen can get entirely wrapped up in his own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. He is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in his work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, he may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. He prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Woody Allen may also be distrustful or fearful of anything he cannot understand with his rational mind. He is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.

His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Woody Allen grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as Allen tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them.
