Being an extremist is a good thing. That's why I'm happy Trump is in power :)
1. Neutral people play it safe
There is nothing that agitated me more than people who are indecisive and cannot come up with a formal, educated decision. Sometimes taking a side means knowing where you stand and having a say. To be in the middle is to play it safe, and sometimes safe is a good thing, but where do we draw the line?
2. Neutral people can be seen as passionless
Let's be honest- Trump is passionate! Whether it is to make America great again or even his views on immigration, he holds a fire in his views and I love it! If a neutral person can't make up their mind repeatedly on issues of significance, it can be seen as they don't care, or have not developed a sense of passion.
3. Neutral people can be deemed as cowards
To be an extremist has the potential for backlash and for people to be upset. You can't please everyone when you take one side of the spectrum. The neutral party who will try to appease both sides can be seen as a coward. That is never a positive thing in my books.
