To answer your question based upon the LDinfo/CPI processing model, it sounds like you are probably a strong conceptual learner who struggles with sequential processing. This happens to be one of the most common learning or processing styles. Although analytical thinking is associated with a focus on the details of a project (usually considered part of sequential processing), once a broader conceptual understanding has been established, it is quite common for a strong conceptual learner such as yourself to focus in on or analyze the details of any given project or situation. It is simply a matter of establishing the conceptual and contextual basis of understanding BEFORE attempting to analyze the details. In contrast, the sequential learner starts with the details before establishing a broader conceptual understanding.
I hope this makes sense. I invite you to try out the free online CPI to determine your learning style based upon the processing model of this web site.
