WHY BEING ANALYTICAL ISN’T BLACK & WHITE
Have you ever wondered how a computer works? How it processes what you ask it to do? How you can touch a particular part of a tablet screen and it knows where your finger is?
Things like this intrigue me, not just computers, everything in everyday life.
Have you ever had a scenario where you had been told or had something explained to you and you didn’t quite understand it? Now imagine that with everything you do or are told. It’s taxing believe me.
For me there the phrase “Everything for a reason, a reason for everything” is truly very apt. I like to know “What, Where, When, Why & How” if it makes logical sense it resonates.
For me being analytical is the ability to visualize, articulate, conceptualize or solve both complex and uncomplicated problems by making decisions that are sensible given the available information. Or as I like to look on it as “common sense”.
Analytical Thinkers are reserved, quiet people. They like to get to the bottom of things – curiosity is one of our strongest motives. We want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. We do not really need much more to be happy because we are modest people. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type.
Analytical Thinkers loathe contradictions and illogicalness; with our sharp intellect, we quickly and comprehensively grasp patterns, principles and structures. We are particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings. Analytical Thinkers like to work alone; our ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all other personality types. We are open for and interested in new information.
“As an Analytical Thinker, you are one of the introverted personality types. You are not particularly suited for dealing with others, working as a part of a team and be in the position of “continuous exchange“, you would much rather work alone, and dwell on your thoughts undisturbed. You usually put a critical distance between yourself and others that enables you to be the keen and incorrupt observer of life. This distance can be truly bridged by only very few other people. That is probably caused by the fact that you are not all that interested to share your thoughts with others”.
“Generally it is sufficient for you to have clarified a matter for yourself or that you have understood something; the continuous in your eyes mostly superficial chatter of the people around you becomes rather annoying. You prefer to work independently and appreciate having a lot of time and quiet in order to concentrate on the really important things: Structuring ideas, comprehending complex causalities, understanding of the universe, its rules and the logical analysis of systems. You absorb new information like a sponge and your memory is legendary. Once you have learned something, you’ll never forget it – unless you consider it to be irrelevant for some reason and decide that it seems to be better purging it from your data storage”.
“Creative problem solving and jumping out of your paradigm to development daring future visions are a part of your greatest strength. At the same time, you are the most acute and rational critic of your own ideas, each one of them will be rigorously examined and discarded at the smallest indication of contradictions or lack of logic. You usually leave the implementation to others and prefer to turn to new theoretical reflections. Especially in case of self-employment (in your case a real possibility), it is important to surround yourself with hands-on oriented and dependable employees who make sure that your incredible suggestions for solutions become reality while you return to immersing yourself in your intellectual world”.
