I like working with people who either know what they want or recognize that they need help fleshing out what they want and are willing to entrust me to guide them through the requirements process.

I have a current client like that. I've had to walk him back from the edge of a cliff a couple times in terms of scope creep and things like that, but he listens. It helps that he spent decades as an electrical engineer.
