  2. Temporization and vacillation in taking hard decisions.

  3. Plenty of aggression in principle - windbagism in practice.

  4. Very good at crowd politics, busy busy action, heights of great mobilisation of the people and inspiring victories, followed with holidays (consistently inconsistent).

  5. Great joy in attending meetings and studies with hands and minds swinging.

  6. Always waiting for someone to take the lead or initiative with ideas and implementation.
