The 2V attitude is characterized by a self-positive (Vs+) and others-positive (Vo+) disposition. This disposition creates an attitude that is acutely aware of how volitional information can be transferred between itself and the outside world in both directions. 2Vs understand the elasticity, usefulness, and creative element within this aspect and generally feel a sense of fearlessness in discussing or sharing information within this realm. The strategies that each 2V employs may differ in behavior or execution but the core attitudinal belief in objective, flexible communication will remain consistent for all 2Vs. Below are some common beliefs and behaviors that you may see with 2Vs. Please keep in mind that these are generalities and do not represent the vast sub-archetypes held within the overall 2V attitude.
