What Is Your Productivity Style?

One size does not fit all when it comes to productivity and time management systems.
The manner in which you perceive and process information, think, communicate, and learn can dramatically affect the success or failure of your productivity and time management systems.

This quiz is designed to understand your style and to provide you with productivity tips that similar people have found effective.

When it comes to productivity styles, there are four: Prioritizer, Planner, Arranger, and Visualizer, says Carson Tate, founder of Working Simply and author of Work Simply: Embracing the Power of Your Personal Productivity Style.

The Prioritizer

A Prioritizer is that person who will defer to logical, analytical, fact-based, critical, and realistic thinking. They tend to use time effectively and efficiently, focusing on the highest-value task and on achieving project outcomes. 

The Planner

The Planner is the team member who thrives on organized, sequential, planned, and detailed thinking. Though at first glance they may appear as a Prioritizer, the Planner will immerse themselves in the details of a project,
while the Prioritizer focuses on only the details that help them complete the project quickly and accurately. The Planner has never met a calendar or project-planning tool that they did not like.

An Arranger

An Arranger prefers supportive, expressive, and emotional thinking. They are a natural communicator and deftly facilitate project meetings. They hate when people lack that personal touch or rely too heavily on data or facts. Arrangers are talkers; they love stories, eye-to-eye contact, expressing concern for others, and asking questions about the way a project or task helps

The Visualizer 

A Visualizer prefers holistic, intuitive, integrating, and synthesizing thinking. They thrive under pressure and are easily bored if they are not juggling multiple, diverse projects. A Visualizer focuses on the big picture and broad concepts making connections. At times, they have a tendency to overlook details and tend to value the possibilities over process.

Do you see the big picture or the details?
Checklists or Coloured Folders?
Pen & Paper or Digital?

Analytics or Case Studies?
