New York Times said:Studies are piling up that show that messy desks are the vivid signatures of people with creative, limber minds (who reap higher salaries than those with neat office landscapes) and that messy closet owners are probably better parents and nicer and cooler than their tidier counterparts. Its a movement that confirms what you have known, deep down, all along: really neat people are not avatars of the good life; they are humorless and inflexible prigs, and have way too much time on their hands.
Ironically so do I, but this has got better with age. Now I can choose to have a tidy or untidy desk rather than feeling compelled to have one.I know that I have a small case of OCD...
HeheheI am flattered by the article bbloke, but I don't agree with dissing tidy desk people (but I like the bit that makes me look good!).
