Before you grab a trash can to dump everything on your desk into, check out this article from Bustle about what having a messy desk says about you.
"According to a new study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences by researchers at the University of Michigan, a messy office makes you come off as kind of neurotic and cranky."
Huh... that kind of makes sense I guess. Sure explains a lot about my coworkers or wait myself! Hahahaha.
Okay, maybe you should grab that trash can ASAP!
But then again it kind of has a double meaning - a messy desk could also mean "you could be a super positive, loving, and motivated genius, there might be some benefits to clearing out the clutter if you want to make the best impression possible. “In everyday life, if people think that a person might be careless, cranky, and uncaring because [their] office is very messy, then these impressions could subsequently impact how — or even whether — they decide to deal with [them] in the future, either on a personal or professional basis,”
So yeah, let's go with the fact that my messy desk makes me a genius!
