Have you ever been scolded for your “nasty habits” before? Have your parents yelled at you time after time to clean your room? Do friends and strangers look at you funny when you start talking to yourself? Maybe you accidentally swear in front of your grandparents? Or perhaps you do all of these things and it keeps you up all night, along with all the other thoughts that decide to run through your head at 2 AM.
I’ve got news for you! These four things are not as bad as they seem.Research has shown that the following habits and/or traits can actually be signs that you are an intelligent person.
Intelligent People Tend To Be Messy
In a study by Kathleen Vohs, a psychological scientist, it was found that a messy desk promotes creative thinking and stimulates new ideas.
“We are all exposed to various kinds of settings, such as in our office space, our homes, our cars, even on the Internet,” Vohs observes. “Whether you have control over the tidiness of the environment or not, you are exposed to it and our research shows it can affect you.”
So, if your room is a mess, don’t be embarrassed. It allows your creativity to flow. A messy environment actually helps you to break the norm and come up with new ideas!
