I have often been labelled “analytical” in my approach to problem solving. While I shall not refute this (certainly not to the extent of confrontation) I seek now to re-establish my label.
I would prefer to be called observant.
Whats the difference you ask?
I consider someone who is analytical to be metric focused. They prefer to gather the data before considering the options. While I do have an acuity when it comes to reporting or data, I generally would prefer to seek wider range of sources to solve my problems. Gather a group of people, have them discuss it and watch hows solutions unfold.
Additionally, I visable see most peoblems/opportunities arise from behavioural sources, rather then a need to pin it down to a metric.
Completely understand if this all is irrelevant to anything, I simply wished to potentially clarify my position for future communicative efforts.
