A person who displays and invokes a sense of confidence and ability to handle ones self or problem. Comes across as very humble, nonjudgmental and quiet - yet very concise and logical when they do respond. Responses typically include a well placed question or short remark that when answered or acknowledged can solve or diffuse a problem. Sometimes a response, although limited, is meant to drive a conversation further so as to allow the person to solve or diffuse the problem themselves. Often confused with being cocky, arrogant, disinterested or a know-it-all. Those who think so are traditionally quick to discover, however, that this is not (quite) the case and experience an "a-ha" moment when their thoughts and reality later intertwine.
"That guy is totally Robinson!"
P1: How should I handle this idiot?
P2: I'd give you my 2 cents, but I think you should ask Robinson.
P2: Robinson, can I ask you what you think of something?
P2: Umm… ( Goes on with some long explanation)
Robinson: (Butts in) That's not how you should go about doing that!
P2: ( Has a long defensive explanation why they should )
Robinson: ( Stares intently into the distance but says nothing )
P2: ( Continues talking... )
Robinson: ( Finally speaks up and says ) Yeah… You shouldn't do that. You are just causing problems for yourself. Total waste of time and energy.
P2: What!? Excuse me?! This idiot is causing the problems!
Robinson: Well - I don't really care about "this idiot". Why do you care about "this idiot"?
P2: Because (blah blah blah blah)
Robinson: I still don't care and based on what you just said you shouldn't either.
P2: Yeah, ok ( in their head they think "Whatever" )
P2: ( Talks a few minutes later to P1) I talked to Robinson.
P2: He doesn't care - he just sat there all quiet for 20 minutes and basically said nothing.
P1: What did he say?
P2: He said I basically shouldn't care about this and that he doesn't care about "this idiot" either!
P1: Really? He said he was an idiot?
P1: So forget about it then - you're just wasting your time on this fool.
P2: OMG! That's exactly what he said! Ah! That makes so much sense now!
