^^ Exactly. After my friend & i watched one of his horsenality DVD's where they showed clips from one of his seminars that was based on loading the 4 different types and Linda narrated (which made everything much easier to understand lol) it was easy to see where we might have gone wrong in the past.
For ex: one of her horses who is an incredible trail horses always has moments of right-brained introvert, where he will just shut down & wont want to do something (like loading into the trailer, for ex). He doesn't act terrified but you can tell he's upset by it. Well we simply saw this as him being stubborn or messing around because he didn't want to do it.
Looking back, we can see now that he's just more claustophobic than her other horses & very unconfident with new situations (cows, for example lol). And because of this she can better understand him & help him through his moments.
