Student or Learner
Would anyone please explain the following in bold in easy English?
1. The left brain helps us to see things as they are. It is ordered, quantitative in orientation, logical, realistic, and practical. The left brain reasons from part to whole and communicates in names and labels. The right brain, on the other hand, controls intuitive and emotional thought.
2. Whay could you do? You could keep pushing (high assertive response). You could call a meeting with the key players to discuss the problem (moderate, but still an assertive response). Both of these options are typical for someone with an assertive style for three reasons: they are forward in motion, they involve interaction with others, and they are focused on the existing reality, on "what is."
In the above, I'm confused about if the three "they" refer to "both of these options" or "someone with an assertive style." If it refers to "both of these options," what does "they are forward in motion" mean?
