The role of personality traits in productivity is of great importance. You can make or break your efforts depending on them.
The easiest way to understand the function of personality traits in productivity is by reviewing how we act based on them.
Similar to how emotions work, who you are and, as a consequence, how you react to events and your environment, can make or break your efficiency efforts.
Let’s have a look together at 4 personalities aspects and their influence in your planning, scheduling, and success.
Why I Broke Up With Perfectionism To Be More Efficient
There’s a huge difference between seeking to improve and wanting to be perfect.
The first one is a valid effort to become a better version of yourself so that you can achieve your goals in life.
The second one, however, is nothing but a waste of time.
It’s a fairytale completed disconnected with reality that causes nothing but stress, overwhelm, and frustration.
Since I value my time and my well-being, I broke up with perfectionism for good as part of my Personal Development Path.
To learn more about why and how I did it, please, read this post.
Whining Sucks And You Don’t Need It To Be Productive
Who likes to listen to complaints all the time?
Note that it has nothing to do with showing support to friends in need.
I’m talking about that endless chain of laments about things.
It about people who are negative by nature and without any self-improvement intent.
The easiest way to spot this trait is by observing those who, no matter how the weather looks like, always have something bad to say about it.
Whining sucks energy out of you, hurts your health, prevents teamwork, and kills productivity.

How To Stop Taking Productivity Too Seriously For Success
Taking productivity too seriously does more harm than good.
You can’t lose sight of the things that truly matter in life.
While your plan is what will guide you towards your goals.
But they’ll mean nothing if they’re accomplished at the cost of your health and your relationships.
Find out how you can take a step back and reassess your efforts and priorities to achieve more.
Overcome Indecision To Increase Your Productivity
When we start our journey towards efficiency, we generally feel overwhelmed.
There’s so much we:
- Want to do.
- Need to do.
- Are told to do.
It’s only normal to feel lost among ALL the possibilities available.
But even though you aren’t alone in your struggle, you still have to overcome indecision if you want to do more.
Start by understanding the cause of your block and set the right steps to get over it.

Dealing with personality traits in productivity
Would you use any of these traits to describe you:
None of them are bad themselves, but their effects aren’t necessarily the best.
Make sure they aren’t causing more damage than good by evaluating the way they make you feel.
