Just have to point out that you just perfectly described James T. Kirk's command style.
That's actually a myth. More often than not, Kirk toed the company line or looked for leeway within his given orders without outright violating them during TOS. Kirk as "Starfleet's bad boy" was really a retcon that got its legs in Star Trek II, but doesn't really match the more no-nonsense Kirk that actually was in TOS.
