That's a picture of my desk. It's sorta clean, but then again it's sorta messy.
What does this say about me? It says I'm sitting at my desk at 7:45am on Monday morning. Harumpf...ugh Monday. My coffee cup is too small today.
In any case, here's a new study about what your desk says about you...
How you keep your desk could impact the choices you make, according to a new study
. Researchers found that a participants sitting in an orderly workspace ate healthier and were more generous. That's because a tidy environment influences people to do what's expected of them, says the study. A messy desk wasn't bad, though; the disorganized backdrop promoted more creative problem-solving and originality. The researchers say sloppiness in a creative environment could allow you to see things differently, possibly spurring out-of-the-box thinking.
