Ps generally procrastinate, and prefer open-ended lives without strict scheduling. We all know this.
I'm curious if any other Ps find that the quality of their work is lowered when they are forced to plan and outline everything.
For example: When I was in middle school, they forced essay/research guidelines on us that had us outlining things, making index cards, making thought webs, and following draft submission due dates. I found that this made my papers worse, and that I create much better work when it's the last minute and I'm free to follow my own devices. Planning things out to such an excruciating level kills my creativity and keeps in some good thoughts that would otherwise be on paper.
Do you experience this? Or do you simply prefer to procrastinate and not plan, but not for the benefit of your work?
