Physical "listening" skills, filing, and refinement of distance/timing/pressure are components to a drunken Lu Dong Bin archetype.  This is the slightly tipsy drunk, achieving balance between tension and relaxation for applications.  This is seen in the pinning of limbs to control the opponent, thereby limiting his options and opening up pathways for your own.  There's simplicity of movement (economy of motion) and accuracy of execution, which in turn yields opposite qualities in the adversary (complex reactions and escapes, sloppiness in order to recover).
