These are people who see a domain, but not the path.
The fact that the path is not clearly defined is what excites them & motivates them.
It also makes them alert to a variety of inputs that can help them to better understand the domain & discover more promising paths.
Thus they are constantly balancing the need to move forward with the need in the moment to reflect on their experiences.
