Variant spectrum perception

In a world of very dense obstructions and high uncertainty, the person with a limited spectrum of visibility will have more probability to succeed. Whereas in a world of predictability and regularity, the person with a broad spectrum of visibility will likely succeed.  As a metaphor, Consider you are travelling on a road with many potholes and heavy traffic. In this scenario, the person with more a focus on immediate goals and closer hardships will  be able to move forward faster. But in the absence of any obstructions and regularity in solutions, it is generally a waste of resources to focus on immediate adversaries.

This sounds obvious, right? But what if I ask, are  we evolved to perceive the world in this way?  Can we write a machine of the variant spectrum?
