What working style works best for you?

Me, I work best when I know exactly what's expected of me, or when I have full control over a project. Basically, I need predictability and clear expectations. I don't fare well in environments where I'm supposed to guess or intuit what I'm supposed to be doing.

I know what I'm supposed to be doing - get it running!

My gig is such an esoteric niche that I can usually 'intuit' what's keeping the machine off the road in 3 steps or less. After a few years of hearing customers' descriptions of symptoms it's to the point where I can diagnose it without thinking.

But my favorite projects are when the people give me a blank canvas (or more like a blank check) to work with

I think I have better ideas of what my working style isn't. It is definitely not Multitasking at all.

I think it's more procedural step by step. Not to say my work needs to be the same routine all the time, but it should have a steady process. I would say it should be Methodical.

I work like a mad man I do what it takes to get the things done that are expected I know what its expected every day, and sometimes my boss does surprise me with request, but however I tend to be very direct if I am displeased with something or just about anyhting at work, then again probably why my very direct store manager, and myself work well together.

Same. Knowing what the task is and when the deadline is.
