"Every social group needs it's sensitive person to balance those equally wonderful folks.., test pilots, ambulance drivers, soldiers and sales managers." She refers to these as those who process less deeply and behave with "decisive boldness", or impulsive lack of thought. HSP's, when confident and assertive, means decisions we make are less likely to be wrong within families, children, or about when to call out the army on a national scale.
I am reading this book with the hope that I can find a new guide, a guide that helps me to hone my particular traits into dynamic skills, versus trying to learn how to be decisively bold, a trait I am not comfortable with and reject as a decision making tool.
