Ironic, he seems to have exhibited the very trait he’s looking for haha. But seriously, I believe he means that in the realization of his/her idea, and in the context of being a fast-moving, courageous person of high-conviction, a founder risks being misunderstood by those who don’t share or can’t see their vision. That’s also why capable of becoming tough is on the list, as you will be criticized and/or attacked by those who don’t understand you or what you’re trying to achieve. And also the reason why infectious evangelist is on the list, along with strong communicator; because both traits ensure that for those who initially misunderstand you a percentage soon will, subsequently becoming supports.

Perhaps the greatest gift that we can give to each other is a greater understanding of ourselves.
