Wow, I am the same way, and go through periods of counterphobia that leave me with more enemies just as I am coming out of one of those periods and settling back into my passive-aggressiveness. So what are the strengths that can be reached? I am guessing it is the natural ability to connect with just about anyone, and that ability comes from a genuine interest to understand them. Or maybe the need to defend ourselves is so strong, we secure ourselves in the person's confidence to feel safer. This seems quite beneficial not only in general, but in such realms of business, politics, and other areas where communication is a necessity. There have been so many times in my life where one set of my friends would end up getting into fights with another set of friends, and I was always caught in the middle. And even today, I have like four separate little groups of friends who would never think about mingling with one another because of their different natures. You have probably experienced similar situations.
