“interesting. if i understand your point correctly, the delegator is more removed and trusting of its team members, in your opinion? i don't necessarily agree, but i want to make sure I'm understanding the implications of the two differences you are presenting. (the "chiefs" comment is lost on me completely, aside from the other points you are making.)
if i had to place myself within either of these two categories, i would definitely pin myself or a micro-manager. that is because i am detail-oriented and a perfectionist. giving ownership of anything doesn't come naturally, so HOW you micro-manage is the skill that must be developed.
personally, i don't think that type A can be hands-off, by nature. if they are developing the balance of delegating, it will always be on the micro-manage-y side. any wasted time/effort or unnecessary communication is very draining to a type A, in my opinion.”
“some breed has to be the "most powerful". that in itself doesn't qualify as a criteria for banning them or claiming they shouldn't be domesticated. i mean, if that happened, then another breed would be the "most powerful". then what? do you argue the same against them too?”
“the lake is a part of a larger river system (visible on google maps), so water movement through the area is high. also, depending on the dirt of the lake bed, it could be very silt-like, which moves around quite a lot. when i was living in louisiana, this was a major concern for people who drove off the road --- the car police are looking for may be no where in the area! (and i am talking about in the bayou...not the mississippi river, where movement would be 100% certain.) a teacher went missing a few years ago and the movement in the bayou not only moved her car but had completely covered it with silt. they had to drag the bayou in order to locate it weeks later.”
