mental interests and abilities
She is a progressive thinker and she is open and receptive to new technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the latest discoveries in any field. Zhang Ziyi has high expectations and a profound belief that mankind's problems can be solved through the use of man's creative intelligence and inventive mind. Zhang has no patience for those whose conservative, unimaginative outlook limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better future. Ziyi also likes to keep abreast of current developments in world affairs, for she instinctively knows that what happens in one part of the world affects everyone. Zhang Ziyi has a strong humanitarian drive. Practically speaking, Zhang Ziyi has an aptitude for organization and enjoys being involved in cooperative endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
Zhang Ziyi thinks a great deal about her career, her reputation and public image, and the way she makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or some other form of communication is likely to be an important aspect of Zhang Ziyi's work.
Zhang's emotions and logic are often out of sync. What Zhang Ziyi feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from her conscious thoughts. Thus she may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up her mind. Zhang Ziyi functions best when she takes the time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, thereby utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Zhang Ziyi studies her dreams and their messages she will be surprised to discover how often her true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from her conscious stance.
Putting her feelings into words does not come very easily, and Zhang Ziyi may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate subjects other than those that are purely factual or intellectual in nature. However, finding an outlet through writing about or describing her feelings would be very gratifying for Ziyi.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Zhang Ziyi often finds it hard not to speak out.
Zhang Ziyi 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. Zhang dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Ziyi is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and she tends to overstate her case or offend people with her unadorned frankness. Zhang Ziyi can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. She has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Ziyi enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
She is an original thinker, capable of unique discoveries and innovations, but she tends to scatter her energies in too many directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions. Zhang Ziyi grasps ideas very quickly and becomes impatient with duller or more conservative minds. A fast-moving, mentally stimulating, and unpredictable atmosphere suits Zhang quite well, even though she may complain about the stress and the crazy pace. Zhang Ziyi has a technical bent and is interested in the newest scientific theories and findings, electronics, computers, etc.
Even though Ziyi can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), she also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Zhang could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Zhang Ziyi may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Ziyi's thinking.
Imaginative, intuitive, and nonlinear in her thinking, Zhang Ziyi has a gift for writing poetry, fiction, or fantasy. Zhang also has a natural openness to the spiritual, intangible side of life and could write or speak on these subjects. She could also foster an innate clairvoyant tendency in herself quite easily.
Her mind is deep and penetrating and she is interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper recesses of the human psyche. Zhang Ziyi possesses an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. Zhang Ziyi is also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
