Marshall called it right.
If I am looking for technical answers, my choice is the words of wisdom. Agreeableness does nothing for me until I have some answers. Only then does the priority shift towards agreeableness. First, I get an answer, then I worry about it being polite.
I would love to have both, but I know which is the more important.
