Completely unscientific reply ahead icon_lol.gif :

I always matched the verb to the noun. If a recipe says beat, then I use the paddle attachment (beater) on my mixer. If it says whisk, I use the wire whisk attachment.

Before I got my KA, I beat in my Sunbeam mixer and whisked in a separate bowl by hand with either a hand-held wire whisk or a fork.

Some cheaper mixers do not bring a whisk attachment which is the one on the far right, the other two are beaters. The whisk puts more air into it.
