Big Picture People -Are able to wing it fairly well -Too much detail at once and you might lose them. -Might need reminders of deadlines. -They can juggle many moving parts with ease -May not be verbalizing or recording all those parts. -Are usually “good” with everyone taking their piece and going with it
