Strategists tend to enjoy communicating with people who want to hear details on how to get things done, and can sometimes require a lot of time before coming to a decision on some topics. If you do make plans with a strategist, be sure that they've got the date marked. Do the same. Also, they enjoy being recognized for their knowledge, help, or effort. A little acknowledgment
