Approach v. Attitude

Dramatica has published its December Tip of the Month which is pretty useful to me because the story I'm working on has Approach and Attitude in the Main Character throughline. My MC is a guy who knows what he's doing (unique ability of approach) but he's kind of a jerk toward the impact character (IC flaw of attitude) so things tend to go from bad to worse. He's a change character, but the trick is to dramatize what a jackass he is in the beginning without making him unsympathetic. I'll probably need to make him funny.
