Perceived by Others

Individuals with low capacity in strategic thinking, particularly in abstract thinking, may exhibit certain behaviors such as difficulty in decision-making, lack of foresight, inflexibility, poor problem-solving skills, and limited creativity. They may struggle to anticipate future consequences of their actions or decisions, resist new ideas or ways of doing things, and rely heavily on others for guidance and support. Poor problem-solving skills are also a common trait, making it difficult to solve complex problems and becoming overwhelmed when faced with challenging tasks.

It’s important to notice that a low capacity in strategic thinking does not necessarily mean that a person is less intelligent or capable in other areas. In settings where strategic thinking and abstract thinking are highly valued, these behaviors may be perceived negatively by others, but there are also positively perceived behaviors. For example, individuals who prioritize getting things done and are able to identify and complete tasks important for achieving the team’s goals are often seen as efficient and productive team members. People who focus on concrete thinking tend to be detail-oriented, able to focus on the specifics of a task, and communicate their ideas clearly and concisely. Practical thinkers are often able to come up with real-world solutions to problems and identify what is feasible to implement.
