Are Messy People The Smartest People?


You could be a genius.  I think I might be for sure:

According to science, messy people are smarter, just look at famously messy Albert Einstein.

The myth is messy people are lazy

Chaos is a tool used as creative fuel by messy people

Another theory is messy people are able to tune out distractions with laser focus

The myth that messy people are lazy people may derive from the idiom, “cleanliness is next to godliness.” In an era where organizational hacks are the rage and spring cleaning binges de-clutter minds is a popular theory, neatness is often boasted as the desired approach to business.

However, Dr. Richard A. Friedman claims that “Contrary to popular belief, messiness is not necessarily a sign of mental disorganization," he says. "Nor does messiness seem to preclude productivity: Some of the most creative and prolific people are inveterate slobs."

Other arguments that messy people are smarter include:

They Use Chaos As Creative Fuel

They Challenge The Status Quo

They Have Laser Focus

They See The Bigger Picture

Messy people create order out of chaos and continue to thrive in their chaotic environment. So, embrace the little or big mess on your desk. Cleaning it isn’t going to make you smarter.

It has been a long night.
