I have a feeling that this is a list of the type of persons who are
attracted to this mailing list maybe?

Technical/scientific people who work in areas where things work or don't

However, I've worked a lot (and am working) in sales and management, so
I think this is not a binary question. Depending on the situation, and
what you want to get out of the situation, you can phrase your intent in
many different ways.

If I know that someone in my team doesn't react well to direct feedback,
I try to soften the blow. If someone doesn't get nuances, I give it to
him straight.

I don't see that as me "faking" or hiding who I am. I see that as me
trying to communicate as effectively as possible to get my ideas across.

Not much. I would take with me the message that adapt how you
communicate depending on the situation and what you would like to get
out of it.

Best regards,
