If I have met clients (always working with colleagues) of the 1st type is only where they don't know how to procced to get the thing built ... these were mainly cooperatives and they were involved but had no other decision than to approve the quite standard work, because other thing would have been disruptive to their plans. The works were made within a team very aware of budget and we had some remarkable success in some cases on this account, but even then the lesser deviations and even if caused by their decisions were only disgruntedly tolerated.
Far more common are clients that know precisely what they want. Of everything else, who cares, and you have some liberty at. Developers (and some are builders) become with time if proficient very aware of what they want as clients to be later sold, and are in this light quite limitative. Contrarily, when good they also are aware of any of the difficulties standing, on some things more even than the architects, and are not at all opposed to the introduction of some creativity, for they themselves are in fact somewhat bored of doing always the same.
