Informal Poll

I would like to conduct an informal poll of everyone out there. This is the question: Are you more of a Thinker, a Talker, or a Doer? Leave a comment or an email with these three attributes ordered from most to least. (Naturally, I will make a pie-chart of the results and report back.)

Having trouble deciding? Here are some queries to help you reach a conclusion. Do you think before you do? Do you tend to talk about what you're going to do, then talk about what you've done-- or do you think about what you're going to do, then think about what you've done? Do you do things that no one else knows you're going to do ahead of time? Do you yourself even know what you're going to do ahead of time? Do you spend more time talking about what you've been thinking about, or thinking about what you've talked about? If you do something but can't tell someone about it, is that a problem? If you think something, is it more important to do something about it, or to tell someone about it? If you talk about something with someone, is it more likely to lead you to do something, to think something, or to talk more about it with someone else? Is thinking about this right now driving you nutty, because you'd rather be doing something? Would it be better if we sat down for a drink and talked about it?

Unfortunately, it tends to go:

Do
Think
Talk (perhaps to try to unDo)

Sigh ...

I'm looking forward to the results - I already appear to be an outlier. :)

I don't do much on the talking- I've usually forgotten what I did or moved on to something else.

I'm with NurseChic:

Talking and Thinking are the same thing.

Chalk up another one for the think-talk hybrid. I realized that I think of myself as a think first (and think and think some more) person, but in reality talking about what I'm thinking is part of my thinking process. I guess it's thinktalk and then do, if I have to. Cause I'm still thinking about it...
