    Default Tactical vs Strategic

    Tactical
    I focus on methods. Goals are modified to fit methods.

    Strategic
    I focus on goals, Methods are modified to fit goals.


    Isn't life mostly about meeting targets, goals, and deadlines these day?

    I would think most people would choose Strategic. I don't think this dichotomy is useful in socionics. I think it depends, for example, on what type of job a person does.

    Maybe. But not for me.

    During the debates between the former Swedish prime minister Göran Persson and our current prime minister (since the national election in September 2006) Fredrik Reinfeldt, it became very obvious and explicit that Persson is Strategical (I think he is an ESTp) and that Reinfeldt is Tactical (I am very sure that he is an ISTj).

    Choosing strategic might be more common. For example I used to choose strategic but I'm slowly switching. I think farsighted people might think they are also strategic (as is my case). However if you seek for your most natural way of doing things I think the difference gets clearer. E.g. can you get satisfaction from life or work without having any explicit strategic goals? if you have a strategic goal then how likely are you to give it up if it seems like the best tactical path would lead you to a somewhat different but comparable goal?

    I'm all about process. I care much less about the end goal. In fact if there's some goal I'm supposed to be working towards, the goal overshadows the process and ruins it for me. For example, in middle school I used to hate science experiments because even though I enjoyed the actual experiment, it stressed me out that I had to get a particular answer and if I didn't get that answer, I'd have to redo the experiment. Rather than just letting the experiment turn out the way it would, I felt pressure to come up with the right answer. Goals ruin everything.

    Irrelevant. In their debates Reinfeldt reasoned like a Tactical. His focus was always on methods, and Persson criticized him for not wanting to set up clear goals to be reached. And Reinfeldt criticized Persson for setting up goals that he hadn't managed to reach. They were explicitly different -- Reinfeldt focussing on correct methods and seeing the goals as secondary, Persson focussing on correct goals and seeing the methods as secondary.

    I'm a Tactical person - I think that's because I'm uncertain of what my goals are...but I know how to get there. I don't know what external changes I'll experience, and they may affect the end result - it doesn't really help me to have clearly defined goals.

    I don't think it's any more worthless than the other Reinen dichotomies.

    Anyway, I'm definitely not goal-oriented. I never finish anything. But it feels good to say you like goals so most people would say they're goal-oriented regardless of which dichotomy they actually are. Which is why these dichotomies are pretty close to worthless as far as typing goes.

    I have worked in an office and I work very well to deadlines of other people's making. But in terms of my own personal life, I don't work with goals. At least very minimally. My husband and I do have financial goals. You know, retirement, cash cushion, stuff like that, college savings. But I don't say to myself "my goal is to lose 10 pounds by Christmas" or "in two years I want to have started a business" or "by next summer I want to have the bathrooms completely renovated". I am much more go with the flow. Things get done, but only when the spirit moves and I'm very flexible about changing my mind and letting my mind be changed by circumstances and/or other people's ideas.

    As Red Baron said, when I worked in an office I worked on other people's goals, but I didn't have goals of my own. And I certainly don't in my own life. My husband is in charge of that kind of thing.

    yeah strategic is the more attractive, popular answer but that doesn't mean the dichotomy is out the window.

    i think i could be tactical actually. for example i had a career "strategy" (i called it) of expanding my influence as a means of moving up. this involved taking on a lot of different projects and taking on a part time teaching position. this did not work. these were tactics, things i wanted to do. if my goal was really to move up then i should have cut way back on my responsibilities and worked on politicking, relationships with influential people, and putting myself in the right spot at the right time. however these tactics did solidfy my position well and establish my credibility. this was good in a field where you have to do that.

    In the example I gave, the dichotomy corroborated the correctness of my typing of the two politicians. But of course the dichotomies are useless for self-typing if people don't understand them.

    I'd like to think I'm strategic, although I'm wondering if I'm actually tactical. I don't know, I think real life requires you to be both at times. I mean, I do have goals, but I don't necessarily meet them and they are changeable. Quite often my goals adapt to how things go. An example is the music CD in my signature; back when I first started writing the album I didn't have any plans to sell it or even produce it - I was just into songwriting as a hobby at the time. As things progressed, I eventually decided I wanted to record my music and later decided I wanted to sell CDs of my music. Is this an example of tactics? I mean, I'd like to think I'm still thinking long-term, but these long-term goals aren't necessarily there from the start, they come along as things develop. Is this normal for Ni IPs? I know Ni EJs are meant to be long-term planners, but..

    The dichotomy isn't worthless... but trying to test on it is, for the reasons you mentioned, Elzo.

    Every dichotomy is stronger in some types and people than others. I'm very clearly strategic... too strategic, honestly. Some people/types are very clearly tactics, like LSE's, for example. Some people/types will seem to be more in the middle though.

    tactics/strategy is actually an interesting dichotomy. when i first heard about dichotomies, tactics > strategy was the single dichotomy with which i identified the most. i really like the idea of having goals not be an end to themselves. i am about the least goal-oriented person you will find; i don't set goals and i dislike tying myself into having to complete some particular arcane task for the sake of self-improvement (self-improvement itself is really an insane waste of time; like i need somebody's help to organize every single detail of my life. i really hate imposed organization on that scale.)


    anyway, i don't really believe in any of the dichotomies (with the possible exception of static/dynamic) as being valid, mostly because i can't see them in other people. i've given up trying. but i'm still intrigued by this one.

    I think I'm strategy, and my interactions with tactical are always somewhat strange. I am always incredibly careful to state and to work towards my goal in order not to waste energy in vain and not to make mistakes. Tacticals seem to easily spit out their goals, and just as easily change them. So every time a tactics says a goal he has, I already think he has all his/her life planned around it, and when they change it, I'm left :S

    Default What type makes the best strategic planner?

    Whether it be a battle field or an American football game, what type is the best at locating an enemies weaknesses and strengths and plans his/her opposition accordingly? I am interested in other people's answers on this.

    This sounds more like tactical than strategical.

    In that case, I'd say SLE.

    It is certainly not the SLE. (This is an extremely clear and obvious example of a false statement made by Expat.)

    You obviously have no idea what the hell you are talking about. Many of the greatest battlefield leaders of all time have been typed as SLE for a good reason. I am too tired to elaborate on this but I know that Expat will tear you apart.

    I would equate tactical prowess to and strategy with . I consider my grasp of long-term strategy to be my greatest strength. However, I often have problems with implementing my strategies in the short run ( seeking).

    To be a great battlefield leader is a totally different thing from being a good strategic planner. They require different skills. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about here.

    Enemy strengths and weaknesses are certainly related to Se. Hence, it logically follows that planning the opposition will be planning according to Se.

    I think some LIEs are good strategists, but I'm not sure how this is so in socionics. Someone would have to explain it in more detail to me. The best example of strategy in an LIE that I can think of is an LIE economist, who predicts and forecasts based on the stock market. Beyond this, I couldn't say. Expat could though; he can read the stock market data. I plan on learning to at some point.

    I thought SLEs were strategic according to Reinin, not tactical.

    Not because Reinin puts SLEs down as strategic types do I think that SLEs often have good strategy. However, they're often unable to foresee that which LIEs can foresee.

    This is partly correct. In the British army, a platoon commander - a 2Lt - must pay attention to tactics less than his CO, but to strategy more than his men. The further you rise in the ranks, the more you need to pay attention to strategy, the less to tactics. I think the army takes people who are tactical and makes them strategic (I'm not talking Reinin here, but it probably applies to some extent), and those who are naturally intuitive or whatever; those who aren't cut out for grunt work but who are amazing strategists once they get to the top will probably struggle a bit and leave before they can demonstrate their skills.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    I am a master of strategic planning and tactical maneuvers. My global empire will be complete in 2012.

    Therefore, LII are the best strategists.

    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.

    Well, that settles it.



    I couldn't figure out if it would be better to fill out each quarter with types of the same quadra, temperament, or club. We may have to work out some kind of seeding structure.

    It's easy, it's me. Actually, I make the best of everything, I am God. This is an undisputable fact of reality.

    My thoughts exactly.

    And I think the type of strategizing that you see chess players doing is something Ti dominants are best at/most in tune with.

    An even more ridiculous suggestion. LSIs are very bad at strategic planning. Only one of the NT types can be really good at strategic planning in comparison to every single one of the S types. Strategic planning is in itself an NT domain.

    Definitely not always. I suck at chess.

    I don't know which exact type should be considered the ultimate strategist, but it is definitely one of the NT types. And it is not the ENTp.

    Leaving aside rhenin dichotomies, I always though NT's tend to be better at strategy building, and ST's - especially ISTp's and ESTp's make better tacticians. Where strategy is a long term plan and tactics deal with the issue(s) at hand.

    Making a point that I thought was obvious.

    Although Jimbean asked about "strategic planner", he went on to say this:

    If you're talking about an actual battle field or American football game, then I think it has to do with tactics rather than strategy, and in that case, I stand by my earlier SLE assessment.

    Now, if you're talking about real strategy, that is, how to win a war not a battle, with long-term thinking, then I don't think it's the SLE. LIE makes more sense.
