Top definition
A mode of thinking and communicating in abstract terms without being bound by a lack of certainty. Abstractional thinking in contrast to transactional thinking allows for vision and accepts uncertainty. Abstractional communications inherently allow for uncertainty and unknown facts rather than being bound by them. Abstractionists tend to be visionary and inventive types. Abstractional is a challenging paradigm for people who are uncomfortable with uncertainty, i.e. transactional people. Abstractional communication does convey tasks to achieve specific goals but rather provides a vision for achieving exceptional results that change paradigms.
Dr. Inventive is very abstractional in communicating his vision for new products and we transactional engineers don't know how to translate this into specific tasks as we don't know how to manage the uncertainty of his paradigm challenging approach to creating new products.
