An individual with a lower capacity in strategic thinking, with emphasis on its abstract thinking component, may benefit from well-structured work environments where there are clearly defined roles and expectations, allowing them to focus on specific tasks and responsibilities without having to worry about broader strategic or abstract concepts. These environments can help optimize their strengths in concrete and practical thinking.
When it comes to specific responsibilities, these individuals may excel in roles that require practical skills, attention to detail, adherence to established procedures and guidelines, and where delivery on time is important. Some examples are:
- Data entry and analysis: Individuals with lower capacity in abstract thinking may be well-suited for tasks that require attention to detail, such as data entry and analysis. These tasks typically involve following established procedures and guidelines and may be more concrete and focused on specific details.
- Quality control: Quality control tasks, such as inspecting products for defects or errors, may also be a good fit for individuals with lower capacity in abstract thinking. These tasks may require attention to detail and adherence to established procedures and may be more focused on concrete and practical aspects of the work.
- Technical or hands-on work: Some technical or hands-on work, such as assembly line work or operating machinery, may also be a good fit for individuals with lower capacity in abstract thinking. These tasks typically involve following established procedures and guidelines and may be more focused on practical skills and attention to detail.
- Customer service: These roles typically involve communication skills, and following established procedures and guidelines, in order to focus on meeting customer needs. Some individuals with lower capacity in abstract thinking may be better at these skills because of higher attention and more practical thinking.
