Way of thinking


Someone with the preference abstract likes to think in combinations, principles and likes to plan often by thinking in symbols, they often like to doodle. These people are very focused on efficiency and are always looking for an abstract solution. People with this preference can tell a story with a good metaphor in it. Metaphors are one of the most powerful methods to get a message across. Just think of the fairy tales.


Someone with the preference concrete concentrates on the facts. When they are starting a project, they already have a concrete idea of the project and know which result has to be realized. If people have this preference highly, they pay close attention to others. For example what someone does and when. People, who are very concrete, might be very confrontational towards others.
