    Default wiring?

    What does it mean by "wiring" in the sentence below? I wonder if it means "true self"?

    "Having an accurate understanding of your own personality and wiring can help you understand your place in
    the company or on the team and help enhance your interactions with people. That alone could transform your life."

    Yes, I believe that you are mostly correct. I read it to mean the way that you do things. A light bulb is wired to produce light. A person, then, can be said to be wired to be relaxed or anxious, careful, or one who takes chances. The way you are wired refers to an innate force. It seems that the dogs in my neighborhood are wired to bark every morning.
