This is almost too easy-I am both. I think we are all a little of both, or at least we should be-to save our sanity.
My home is disorganized, with dirty dishes, books and magazines strune about every room-even the bathroom. There is trashed piled up by the door, I don’t like buying trash stickers. So I pile it up and take it to open dumpsters somewhere in town, once a week or so. Sometimes I go longer. But once it smells it has to go.
Despite its disorganized state my house feels homey and comfortable. I feel the most comfortable in my present house than I have in any other place I have lived.
Other aspects of my life are in various states of organization/disorganization. My car, disorganized. The way I work is disorganized and a bit messy. But I am organized in how I wait on tables, manage and bartend. Long ago I set-up a system which serves me well. I am always moving, cleaning tables, glasses, bottles. Running food as I come out of the kitchen and bringing dirty dishes into the kitchen. I try to maintain my system no matter how chaotic the restaurant becomes.
Now I am trying to organize my writing-setting up the system to work everyday and more importantly publish it online.
