As a Mercury-in-Taurus person, you never embark on a project without being completely prepared. You have a practical, stable, and constructive mind.
There is a rigidity to your intellect. You are quite sure your opinions are the wisest and you have little use for what others think. You have an excellent memory and are a good observer, but you are apt to listen inattentively. You tend to be inflexible, and it’s difficult to argue with you, because you don’t really consider any other point of view except yours. In fact, since you’re not about to change your mind, you close your ears to whatever others say. You also have a tendency to repeat yourself, to state what you’ve just said over again in different terms, usually to make sure everyone has gotten the point.
You take a lot of time to come up with any decision, but when you do, you stick to it. You gather your facts, construct a careful argument, and present it diplomatically. After that, having reached a reasoned decision with all deliberate speed, you see no reason to alter your opinion, in part because you have the facts, and in part because opening up to fresh ideas is not easy for you. You tend to be inflexible, and it’s difficult to argue with you, because you don’t really consider any other point of view except yours. In fact, you close your ears to whatever others say.
Your only drawback is that you are a slow learner.
Although you are sociable and attractive, and have a certain refinement about your manners, you’re a bit shy with strangers. You’re more at ease reading a book while lounging in a comfortable overstuffed chair than holding court in the middle of a crowded gathering. You read a great deal, but it is experience that teaches you the lessons you value in life.
