Our office desks actually say a lot about who we are as individuals, but do you know what your office desk says about you and your personality? Do you find that you are the type of person that has to be surrounded by objects while working or do you have to have a clean and clutter-free space in which to work?
Here are just a few desk types and what it may say about who you are:
Most people that have a cluttered desk might call it an organized mess or they may say the clutter is okay because you always know exactly where to find what you need. But is that what everyone else thinks when they pass by your desk?
Many people might wonder how you can get anything done with such a cluttered workspace and others might feel like there is more under the surface of the messy madness that may even keep you from successfully completing your work.
However, a cluttered desk might also just be a sign of how extroverted you are, and you may be the one everyone goes to when they need something because they know you will most likely always have what they are looking for in your mess of a desk.
Simplistic and Minimal
On the complete opposite spectrum, we find the simplistic and minimal desk that is clear of clutter and only harbors the essentials one needs to complete their work. This may mean you are conscientious, disciplined, and driven to succeed. You may also be reliable and hardworking with limited distractions.
However, some might view you as boring and less than creative which could ultimately have you passed over if suggestions or ideas are needed.
Next, we have the person that incorporates their own personal style and warmth to their desk and workspace. These people typically have photos of friends and family, maybe a few small toys or trinkets, or a small potted plant or flower. There are probably pops of color as well.
This all may show how creative and expressive you are, and you may feel more comfortable having these memories and items close to you. Others may find you to be a bit quirky or neurotic, but you are just showing off who you are as a person to those around you.
No matter what desk type you have, people will probably always have their own opinion. As long as you get your job done and you do it successfully, then feel free to embrace your workspace and make it your own.
