    It’s crazy. I was literally having this exact same discussion with my friends on strategy vs tactics, albeit primarily in the context of FPS video games, with a good friend of mine mere days ago.

    • Jeff Newman says:

      An interesting framework for identifying people geared towads strategy or tactics is the Jungian personality archetypes. More recently David Kiersey, and Meyers and Briggs, have amended the Jungian personality archetypes. The group Rationals, who favour intuition & thinking (NT) are considered the primary strategic thinkers. Conversely, the group Artisans, who favour Sensing and Thinking operations (ST) are considered the best tacticians.
