Can you explain Story Tendency further?

Story Tendency describes the degree to which the Main Character feels compelled to embrace the efforts to achieve the Story Goal. The Story Tendency is determined by combining the MC Approach (Do-er or Be-er) with the Story Driver (Action or Decision). When the MC's Approach is in line with the Story Driver, the MC is said to be a WILLING or comfortable participant, such as Tarzan in Tarzan (Do-er/Action) and Deanie in Splendor in the Grass (Be-er/Decision). When the MC's Approach and the Story Driver are at odds, the MC is said to be an UNWILLING or uncomfortable participant, such as Frank Galvn in the The Verdict (Do-er/Decision), and Sarah Connor in The Terminator (Be-er/Action).
