Your desk in­flu­ences the way you think

HT Ludhiana Live - - Front Page -

here seem to be two types of peo­ple in the world: those who keep their desks neat and those who don't. Now, new re­search shows that whether your desk is messy or tidy may in­flu­ence how you think. Peo­ple with tidy desks are healthy eaters, gen­er­ous with cash, and good at fol­low­ing rules. Those with clut­tered desks are bet­ter at creative think­ing and com­ing up with ideas.

Sim­i­larly, when given a choice be­tween a new prod­uct and an es­tab­lished one, those in the messy room were more in­clined to take their chance on the new prod­uct, again sig­nal­ing that dis­or­derly en­vi­ron­ments can help re­lease peo­ple from con­ven­tion­al­ity.
