'Shut Up' means stop what you're doing, take time out to reflect, let go of baggage and beliefs that hinder your potential. 'Move On' means tomorrow can be different from today, look for new possibilities, don't just think about it, take action.
This principle the method of diagnosis Paul explains and the definitions for the 4 forms above, provided major breakthroughs for me personally and how my brain interacts with myself.
