Just as a person's overall personality is made up of and represented by his or her traits, a person's time personality is made up of a series of tense styles. Monochronic or polychronic. A person's awareness of the monochronic/polychronic aspect of personal time style influences time use perceptions of time pressure and the amount and sequence of time spent on tasks. This affects his personal performance.

A monolithic approach to time management is essentially objective and emphasizes promptness, speed, brevity and punctuality. It is a very efficient and focused way of managing work and life. Monochronic time managers thrive on detailed planning and organization. They prefer to focus on one task at a time and they follow a schedule that they don't like to deviate from. They get upset by distractions or interruptions and tend to put off new tasks until a later date, when they can be worked into the schedule.

A polychronic approach to time management is subjective and emphasizes motivation, imagination, flexibility, intuition, and dedication. Trust, bonding, happiness, and quality of life more strongly influence the decisions of an individual who ticks through the polychronic period. Polychronic time managers prefer to have multiple projects going at once, enjoy switching from activity to activity, and are uncomfortable with interruptions and interruptions. Unlike their monochronic counterparts, polychronic managers know that they perform well under pressure.

Monochronic manager

> Focus well

> Take time seriously

> Committed to the job

> Rarely borrow or lend

> Do one thing at a time

> Emphasize promptness

> Follow the plans religiously

> Less context, information needed

> Are associated with non-disturbing

> There is a habit of short-term relationships

Polychronic Manager

> Committed to people

> Borrow and lend easily

> Are more associated with

> Do multiple things at once

> Base readiness on relationships

> Change plans frequently and easily

> Having high references, information

> Proximity to others rather than privacy

> Tendency to create lifelong relationships

> are subject to extreme distractions and interruptions

> Consider the time commitment and goals to be achieved

Clearly, a monochronic approach is better suited for dealing with routine and predictable tasks, while a polychronic approach is better suited for dealing with things like creating new concepts or resolving disputes. Conflicts arise when managers apply the monochronic style to situations that demand polychronic time, or when managers prefer the polychronic style when the situation warrants the use of a monochronic style. So how do managers deal with the subjective, polychronic, self-imposed healthy need for time? At the same time singular and objective time measures fit. The only way to figure out which method works best in a given situation is based on sound reasoning and acumen.
