People with Owl preferences like to collect information through patterns and connections and use this to explore possibilities.
Owls tend to be big picture thinkers who enjoy building models of the way things work today, but more so of the way something could work in the future, whether that be a financial plan and strategy, or commercial enterprise, or the way a division could more effectively and innovatively function within a broader organisation.
Due to this preference to explore possibilities and innovate, environments of restricting intellectual freedom have the tendency to stifle the energy of these types.
In support of this possibility orientation, people with Owl preferences also tend to have a high value on competence, logic and reason.
Without finding the logic and reason behind plans and recommendations, they may have difficulty in appreciating or valuing decisions being made without them.
