KNOW Thyself - A Tactical Advantage

One the most tactical advantages for a person is to "Know Thyself!"

Knowing Thyself - enables one to win more battles with your enemies.

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat."

Knowing the Enemy - enables one to stand on defense or take the offense.

"Knowing the enemy enables you to take the offensive, knowing yourself enables you to stand on the defensive." He adds: "Attack is the secret of defense; defense is the planning of an attack." It would be hard to find a better epitome of the root-principle of war.

Knowing When to Take the Defensive or Offensive – enables one to fight without fight or with lethal blows.

"If he can fight, he advances and takes the offensive; if he cannot fight, he retreats and remains on the defensive. He will invariably conquer who knows whether it is right to take the offensive or the defensive."
