With me, I do work better under pressure so I get things done faster.. but it's not necessarily of the best quality.
When I'm taking my time I tend to do a better job.. so I dunno. Both have it's pluses B )

I guess it depends on whether or not pressure acts as a motivator for you, or a demotivator. As someone who does things best on my own terms, it's definately the latter for me, but some do so well with the former.

Pressure can get me to finish work faster, but the quality is never as good as it could be when I'm not under pressure. I prefer to take things slowly and easily so I can get work done efficiently without putting my sanity at risk.

I'm not questioning this anymore - I hate pressure. After 8 weeks of constant pressure - I'm so tired and just want to die. I NEED days off and such days that I can be ALONE, I just need them so much or else I'm just gonna explode. Pressure in little bits works, but now all the time everyday, it's horrible!

There are those who work well under pressure, those who don't, and then there are people like me, who pretty much -only- work under pressure. The messed up part? It's not a matter of laziness - just priorities. If something needs doing, I'll do it. But if it can wait, it probably will because there's most likely something I'd rather be doing. I've tried working with no pressure before, and not only does it take forever to get anything done, but the quality of work is lackluster at best. Yet when the heat is on, I get things done quickly and do them well. I guess they call that being "externally motivated."

I don't like it, but it's definitely a necessity. When I realize that I don't have something to stress me out, I instantly freak and honestly it's really bad to be like that (I should be happy about that, right?). ^^; It generally makes good fuel but the last few months have been completely insane. Things should be a lot better after mid-May though. ^_^

I absolutely need pressure. When I have pressure on me I become afraid to fail in whatever task I'm being pressured to complete.Maybe it's just me , but I do my best work when I'm afraid. XD

I personally work better under pressure, at that point I'm like 'I have to do this.... NOW!''
I tend to do some of my better accomplishments under pressure as well

We are but tyres on the car of life... with no pressure in the tyres the car will not run as easily and will take more effort to move to where you want to go.

But if your car is already at your destination... ;)

I have to have it in order to get things done. People often say that I am too hard on myself, but it's how I achieve my goals in life.

I work properly when i have clearly defined deadlines and i know when i need things done by. I've done jobs where i never really had a time limit and i end up just putting it off and doing other stuff. It';s much better if i go into something like "okay this is what we need, This is when we need it done by go do it." Otherwise i'm totally lazy and easily distracted. If i know full well i won't get paid if i don't finish by a strict deadline i work very fast.

Pressures and deadlines are good for me. Otherwise, I don't get around to doing things. Call me lazy, but I like to relax. ^_^

pressure!? don't want, sometimes need
it can be a good thing (when you're lazy) but it always had a negative affect on me so it's not really for me
