What a dumb thing to say. What you're talking about is people who have the ability to take attention to detail and respect it, and that look at more than one side of the situation. That normally involves this thing called "thinking", especially before talking. I wouldn't advise you to try it though. Don't want you to maim your brain by pushing it over its limits.

Reasonable people tend to see all sides of things, and there is nothing remotely insecure or weak about it. On the contrary, as a matter of fact

"On the contrary, as a matter of fact" - Very true. Especially in a team, it can take strength to be the one to make everyone step back and not make a possibly rash decision that can turn out to be bad for everyone in the long run.

The OP doesn't seem to realize that that can be a very important trait in a leader.

I think your response to this convoluted question was a very good one, and I sure don't have any idea what this OP does or does not realize, or what they consider a "direct question". :)

Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you dont.

What are you trying to say? Of course there's going to be "it depends and not all people" humans are diverse, one problem doesn't have the same solution for everyone, people go trough things differently. If everything worked the same for everyone there'd be a success formula or happiness formula, we'd all be doctors, lawyers, wall street yuppies and politicians. For better or worse humanity can't be put under the same banner.

Sometimes you wonder which side of the fence is greener, but then you just realise the greener grass was from someone using turfgrass, and the other was naturally grown without a hand on it. Then there's the fence problem. It depends on how big the fence is, how long it is, what it is made of.

Got a earth-grounded wood fence? Got a brick wall? A wooden fence is easily taken down or you can easily climb the other side, while sitting on a tall brick wall, ensures that a decision to jump is permanent as you can't go back up once you've jumped off after building it. However, said brick wall can also be taken down due to it being weak in foundation while the wooden fence was hammered into the ground.

Please leave DIYs to the professionals. Don't put up a fence if you don't know how to take it down.

Well, sometimes it does depend. Sometimes it's "not everyone". Sometimes you just don't know. That's just reality. Pretending that's not true and throwing around blanket statements is not called being "decisive", it's just dishonest.

Also, sometimes, people end up shooting themselves in the foot because they were too quick to act. Sometimes the best thing to do is step back from a decision, and think harder about it, or wait until more information is available.

Also, why see it as a matter of who "takes the high road"? Everything is not so black and white. "Leaders vs fence-sitters" - group A versus group B - I'm not a fan of this "we versus them" mentality. There can be value in both kinds of attitude - being decisive in the face of uncertainty, or stepping back and admitting you can't act. The same person can apply both strategies to different situations.

You see, it depends.
