ABILITY: Safeguarding Roles and Distracting Rituals

The above is a frame of coordinates with column factors that intersect with row factors resulting in INTERSECTION variants.  Each variant is unique. Thus, consider intersection 1A, Diplomatic Preempting. Note how different it is from, say, intersection 4A, Diplomatic Accommodating, and how different it is from intersection 1C, Tactical Preempting.  All sixteen defensive roles and rituals differ in ways that are easily distinguished by those present when such behavior is displayed.


Here are sixteen differing ways of working each of which is linked to a relevant objective. Some of us are more able to do diplomatic enabling, others logistical saving. Likewise, some of us are more able to do tactical handling, others strategic aligning. None of us can do all ways of working equally well. Those most capable at diplomatic enabling are least capable at tactical handling and vise versa. Likewise, those most capable at logistical saving are least capable at strategic aligning and vise versa. Those who find and practice their work-of-best-fit are fortunate indeed.
