Are you a Plotter or Pantser?

A friend of mine told me about Plotters and Pantsers. i was unfamiliar with the term. I found this article and now I get it. When writing, I'm a Pantser and fly by the seat of my pants, at least in the beginning. Then about 3/4 of the way through I start storyboarding to see the path I need to take to finish it up, using post-it notes for each chapter that I can move around to get the right arc.
