Three Types of Note Taking Personalities


The word Digital Garden comes from this.

  • Less structured - open ended
  • You look at your notes again and again
  • Notes can grow over time
  • Eg. Roam, Obsidian


  • You build your own organization structure
  • Customized system for you.
  • Eg. Notion


  • Every note has one specific place
  • Highly organized
  • You might not go back to these notes. Lots of new notes get saved - but not revisited
  • Eg. Evernote, Onenote
