Typically uncompromising and always in search of ways to strengthen your position, even if it means weakening theirs – you tend to find a way to come out on top, regardless of the long-term cost. This approach can serve you well in one-off business negotiations, but be wary about being overly aggressive with long-term partners because you may risk damaging relationships.
