Training and experience morphs your instincts which is innate which mostly physical. In other words nothing in that post actually refutes what I wrote. In terms of tactical superiority, thought is a burden. Thinking means that you're hesitating which can mean the difference between being alive and being wounded or dead. That's what I mean by instinct. Your training and your combat experience morphs you so you don't have to think. You know what to do without thinking. Your fancy use of terminology that was created by your masters to keep you placid aside, you already know this. Specialisations aren't determined by mental prowess, either. You do something enough times over a long period and you'll be considered a genius at it. Of course, you're still not a genius because people think you're a genius. The only geniuses are polymaths and, frankly, I can't think of a single military polymath. If such a creature existed I'm sure they'd be doing something much more productive than wasting their efforts for the destructive, wasteful, bureaucratic behemoth (a bit redundant there) we call the military. Also, how long were you in the airborne?
