Keep Talking - I’m Analyzing You

So, what exactly does a firefighter look like? How should they act? What skills should they be able to master? How big and strong should they be? Are firefighters supposed to be more mechanically inclined or fluid with their words? Should they be creative or analytical? Is it essential that they be self-aware or is it more important that they are interpersonal? Are they nimble minded and quick to reply, or do they process information more slowly before providing a response?
