Do you think a strategic person is one who collects data as much as possible?

No, that is a tactical person. A strategic person is someone who thinks big-picture. Collecting data is little-picture. The information that that data collection may lead to, along with other things, can be part of coming up with strategy, but a strategic person will leave that data collection to task-oriented people and will simply use the information derived from that data collection.
Think about it: "strategic" comes from "stratus," as in clouds, the view from which is grand and maybe even global rather than down-to-earth and detailed, which is what data collection is. That's why Amazon's CEO isn't collecting and inputting Amazon's customer data, for example.

Collecting data is good for people who can use that knowledge in conversation with others, especially when this skill is needed because someone is called upon to socialize frequently or converse with others at work. But data isn't too helpful unless it's coupled with wisdom.

No. You collect enough data to allow you to make an informed decision. That is the time to stop and act.
