: It can take the binary concepts of strongly and weakly, orfuzzy concepts such as very weakly, weakly, fairly strongly, a lot, intensely,very intensely.Polarity: When this variable increases, the other decreases - Whenthis decreases, the other increases- When this increases, the otherincreases as well – when this decreases, the other decreases as well. Bothchange in the same direction – The two vary in opposite directions -Bothincrease – Both decrease.
That information is useful for deciding / designing… - It is necessary to knowabout that variable for…
After a certain time – Everything takes time to accomplish – Nothinghappens instantaneously – First that will happen, then the other process willstart

Take care of your strategic resources – Avoid rapiddepletion – Try to make your resources last longer.
Isn’t proportional – This subtle action has a profound impact in – Changingthat persons attitude will take an enormous and long effort – When certainthreshold is trespassed, an effect starts to build up.
