So who works best under pressure and who likes it to be more relaxed? Personally I work best under pressure. I wrote an essay for uni and had quite a while to write it. I didn't really write a lot for weeks then in the 2 days before it was due in I wrote 90% of it. I got the 80% and the top mark in the class despite others doing it over a long period. I work much better if I can get into the mindset of doing it and hit it hard and fast. It annoys me sometimes if I do a little bit wait a few days, do a bit more wait a bit, do a bit more as you need to get into the mindset each time. Writing a short essay for uni at the moment and have been doing it for the past 5 hours with short breaks and basicly finished, its due in by midnight. I know if I'd have been doing it over the past few weeks I'd have taken way longer than 5 hours total time. I'll spend another hour or so reviewing it and double checking all references etc but that's easy enough. Obviously with some things its unavoidable that you have to take your time an example being dissertations. Also its not good to be under pressure with lots of things at the same time, but I much prefer shorter deadlines. So do you like to be up against it to do your best or do you like it to be more relaxed and spread out?
