A Feel-Good Approach to Organization Episode Summary:
Welcome to another episode of the Marketing Personalities Podcast! I’m Brit Kolo and I’m here today with Megan Seeley, who’s your Planning Fairy Godmother at TheGoalDesigner.com and Brit’s go-to organization and planning expert.
Meg and I are here today to discuss organization and planning as it relates to your personality type! It’s what Meg is an expert in and we’re here to help even those of us who aren’t naturally inclined to organization find what feels good.
But first, let’s get to know Meg.
Meg is an ISFJ Defender, so she’s part of the Sentinel tribe of personalities. This makes her the perfect person to talk to about planning and organization because as part of the Sentinel tribe, organization is key for her.
Plus, Meg uses personality typing in her own business to figure out what paper planner is best for someone to use. She knows that one size does NOT fit all when it comes to paper planners so she’s here to match you with your best paper planner and planning strategy.
To do this, Meg uses Gretchen Rubin’s Four Tendencies framework. This framework types you based on what expectations you meet.
Here are the four types:
- Obligers meet outer expectations easily, while struggling to meet inner expectations
- Questioners meet inner expectations easily, while struggling to meet outer expectations.
- Upholders meet both inner and outer expectations easily.
- Rebels struggle to meet both inner and outer expectations.

Now, it makes sense for Meg to use this framework in her paper planning matching because the act of planning is the act of setting expectations for yourself and others.
To find your perfect paper planner and planning strategy based on your Tendency, take Meg’s short quiz right here.
