Impulsive people do what first comes to them. They act on their first impression. They take little or no time to analyze the situation.


These persons postpone their final choice. They always want to think about their options and weigh their alternatives.


Confident people have a clear idea of ​​what they want and do not let others affect them. They sometimes put aside valuable insight from others.
