Detail Oriented?

Woo-hoo! The proposal is DONE! I can have my life back!

One of my collaborators complimented me on being so detail-oriented about the whole thing. My first thought was What? I'm not detail-oriented at all! I'm messy and disorganized and I have lots of projects I've never finished. I'm all about not doing things until and unless it's necessary and flexibility and context-dependence and all that.

But on the other hand, later on in the day I was editing an HTML document to get rid of all the MS cruft and make sure it was clean, and that included changing all the instances of "Step 2." to "Step 2:" because, hello, that should be a colon and worse yet, you're being inconsistent in your punctuation and it makes me itch! YES I'm going to organize and label the notecards from our group discussion before giving them to the lab director because otherwise she'll have no idea what they even mean and how pointless would that be?

So I dunno. What do you think?

Poll #1063033 Detail Orientation

Do you think I'm detail-oriented?


Are you detail-oriented?


What does "detail-oriented" even mean, anyway?
