The Judicious/Decisive Dichotomy
Judicious / decisive (also: Reasonable / resolute) is one of the 15 Reinin dichotomies. Judicious types include Alphas and Deltas and value extroverted intuition (Ne) and introverted sensing (Si); Decisive types include Betas and Gammas and value introverted intuition (Ni) and extroverted sensing (Se).
- Natural state is relaxed.
- Work best when they can relax beforehand, and are mobilized only for the duration necessary.
- Have an easy time going from 'mobilized' to 'relaxed', but not from 'relaxed' to 'mobilized'. Thus, they may need external stimuli to become mobilized.
- Tend to divide up matters into smaller stages during which they are mobilized, relaxing between each stage.
- Become aware of their own mobilization as soon as it manifests â€“ i.e., as soon as they start considering an action. However, they are often poorly aware of the periods of maximal mobilization â€“ i.e., the time of action.
- Focuses and places the most importance on the preparatory stage â€“ the 'action' stages are considered implicit and given less attention.
- Consider their working conditions (e.g., comfort, freedom, and convenience) more important than the possible results and rewards (e.g., how much they are paid)
- This attitude is strengthened by introversion.
- More aware of when they are mobilized than when they are relaxed.
- "Consideration is very nice, that time during which you still don't have to make a decision. It's even better when it isn't necessary to do anything afterwards."
- Natural state is readiness.
- Work best if they are able to tart mobilizing in preparation for what they must do.
- Easily go from 'relaxed' to 'mobilized', but not from 'mobilized' to 'relaxed'. Thus, they may need external stimuli (like a movie) to relax.
- Tend to perform an entire task at once, and to maintain their internal 'readiness' between tasks.
- Become of aware of their own mobilization at its maximals (e.g., when it is time for action). However, they are often poorly aware of when the mobilization firsts manifests; e.g., when they first start considering an action.
- Focuses and places the most importance on taking action â€“ preparation is considered implicit and given less attention.8
- Consider the possible results and rewards of their work (e.g., how much they are paid) more important than the working conditions (e.g., comfort, freedom, and convenience).
- This attitude is strengthened by extroversion
- More aware of when they are relaxed than when they are mobilized
- "I will not get stuck in the process of consideration; it always ends in a decision being made."
