Become accepting of outside authority through realizing their own power and authority.
The 3V attitude is formed by placing the Volition aspect (V) into the Insecure Position (3rd). Insecure Volition (3V) has an apprehensive and unsure attitude towards all manifestations of willpower. All 3V types believe they are insufficient at being involved in matters relating to volition. They are mostly anxious about their opinions of responsibilities, obligations, goals, willpower, and how to overcome obstacles. These types tend to have a shaky and unstable relationship with how they process all things related to the human drive. They tend to need clarification and feedback from others when engaging in matters of volition.
