Your profile here describes your most and least preferred approach in certain situations, and its likely impact on your decision-making around opportunities and problems.
The results suggest that in certain situations you will tend to have:

Person BB appears to have answered slightly inconsistently here, or may not know this aspect of your character that well. On the other hand it may just be that your situation, culture or environment means that it is most appropriate to use behaviours linked to your non-preferred Mental Preferences to a significant extent, and you have adapted your behaviour to do this. It may be worth completing the questionnaire again with someone else to act as your reference person.
Note: The greater is your most preferred approach, and lower your least preferred approach, when compared to the other decision making approaches (see the bar chart in Section 14 Your Decision Making Aptitudes), then the more relevant are the comments above likely to be for you.
Reflection: Question 1) An out of control railway trolley is about to run down five workers who are standing on the track. There's a fork ahead, and a railway controller can throw a switch which will divert the train to another line on which there is only one worker? Should the controller throw the switch?
Question 2) There is a railway manager standing on a bridge above the ‘out of control railway trolley’ and next to him is a large man. If the large man was to fall on the tracks he would stop the trolley before it hit and killed the five workers. Should the manager push the large man onto the tracks?1
