Three Types of Note Taking Personalities

Gardeners

The word Digital Garden comes from this type.

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

Architects

  • You build your own organisation structure
  • Customised system for you.
  • Eg. Notion

Librarians

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

Students

  • Have a short term goal in mind
  • Surface level information is enough.
  • Eg. Google Keep
