Planners and politicians.

Planners work in the realm of ideas and they use data, analysis and the application of rationality to work through the problems they encounter.

Politicians work in the realm of emotions and they use a community’s hopes and fears about the future, its shared and unshared values, and the multiple ways history can be interpreted to work through the problems they encounter.

These two worlds are not directly translatable one to the other, but they are bridgeable.
