In the context used, neither trait implies any kind of proficiency or lack of proficiency. In this case it was mentioned as traits that I commonly observe associated with someone who uses the "domme" title socially rather than equating said traits with their playtime skills or lack therof.
However if your asking about Pertinence
; Then I would say no, neither trait is pertinent or directly indicative of performance or accomplishment.
As for the second part of your question; No
, not automatically. Depending on context of course.
