Aphorism 16 / Others / Conveying Ideas


Conceptual thinkers often make the mistake of believing detaled thinkers understand the context of a situation as well as the conceptual thinker does. So, in conversation, the conceptual thinker proceeds to discuss the details with the detailed thinker. In this process, the conceptual thinker gets frustrated because he is unable to sway the detailed thinker in argument despite the ideas and facts of the case. This is precisely because the detailed thinker doesn’t understand the context of the situation and therefore cannot make the associations between the facts as layed out by the conceptual thinker.

Sometimes it’s best that the two don’t associate to avoid frustration.
