Respect for the other person
High
An individual will have one style that they generally feel most comfortable with.
However, in certain situations they will feel more comfortable adopting a different
style . For example, a Winnie the Pooh personality may turn into a shark if you say
something about their child. Any person can learn to effectively be any one of these
animals, but they will still prefer one style over the others.
