I am one of these.
Just plays to my strengths. My brain naturally works this way; I’m good at knowing what terms to search for and looking through the returned data for what’s relevant even if to most people it looks very unpromising.
Many times in my life people have spent hours, days and weeks looking for something that I find in 30 seconds or less. For this reason, my partner asks me to search for things all the time. For a friend of mine once, I found the name of a rare book in less than a minute he’d been seeking out for years off and on.
I often say, “If I can’t find it, it doesn’t exist.”
Search skills matter in the world of today and I got ’em.
Ask me to do a math problem, though, and you’re screwed….
