- Understanding someone else’s tendency is worthwhile, because it gives you a picture of what his or her motivations are.
- Understanding your own tendency is worthwhile too, as it gives you helps you interpret your inhibitions and inclinations, and makes it easier for you to come up with a roadmap to work with them.
