Are you an organized person?

"Are you an organized person?"

You can think that this question is stupid. Actually, I do.  Everyone will say they are organized.  Who will admit otherwise?  You should know that everyone will say similar things.  Take this time to be creative with your answer.  You can use these types of questions to leave a strong impression with a creative answer.  Or, if you are not creative, then the best way to answer this question is with an example.  Using a story is more believable and easier to remember.  Feel free to mix in a little humor to make it more memorable.

Short Answers

"I'm a very organized person.  I like to know exactly what I'm going to do for the day and the week.  So I outline my tasks and organize my work load.  By doing so, I can organize my time and work better."

"I believe I'm very organized.  I like to organize my work by priority and deadlines.  I do this so I can produce the highest quality work in the amount of time I have."

"I think I'm quite organized.  I like my documents and papers in a way where I can retrieve them quickly.  I also organize my work in a way where it's easy to see exactly what I'm doing."

"Organization has always come easy to me.  I naturally organize things like my desk, time, assignments, and work without thinking about them.  This helps me tremendously during times when I'm approaching a deadline."

Long Answer

"I'm actually a very organized person.  It's funny that you mention this because just the other day, my roommate wanted to borrow my suitcase and saw my closet.  He made fun of me for organizing my clothes by length and color.  I'm like that with everything.  It's just so much easier to manage things.  However, I'm not picky and don't need to have things in a certain way.  I just want things to be organized.  So yes, I consider myself organized."

This example should only be done if you are confident with your communication abilities.  If you appear awkward or if you sound like you are reading this type of answer, it could have a negative effect.  Instead, you should make a generic answer if you are uncomfortable with this type of answer.
