When someone walks into your home or office, they can immediately decide whether you are clean and organised or messy and chaotic, based on how tidy or untidy your space is. They may even discover what your interests are just by looking at the photos and mementos that you display.
But more than the obvious, your space can actually reveal your personality – whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, if you’re open and adventurous or if you’re closed and cautious. Here are some insights that you might be giving your visitors.
First impressions count for a lot, especially when it comes to the cleanliness of your home or office.
A clean and orderly space would indicate that you are conscientious and in control. But is your home or office space really neat and tidy? There are those who would organise their desks very well but they would just stuff everything in their drawers. Or you may be cleaning the house but merely sweeping the dust under the carpet. In these cases, you’d rank quite low on conscientiousness.
A thoroughly clean and organised home or work space would indicate that a person is highly conscientious. Make sure there’s nothing nasty hiding under your carpet! A professional carpet cleaning service can ensure a thorough clean for your carpets.
How you arrange your furniture can indicate whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert. Introverts would set up their spaces just for their own comfort, without a chair to spare for visitors. Similarly, a person who is “closed-off” will arrange their chairs and couch facing away from the door.
Extroverts in the meantime will arrange their furniture for social interaction. Their space will be more open. There will be more chairs and perhaps even candy dishes for visitors.
What do you have on your shelves? If you have a diverse genre of books, then that’s a sign of openness. It also indicates that you are creative and adventurous. When it comes to CD collections, extroverts would favour music with vocals while introverts would go for instrumental music. As for photos, extroverts would often display snapshots of themselves enjoying good times with family and friends while introverts would have photos of objects and scenery.
Do you have a well-organised and perpetually stocked pantry? Then you’re considered highly conscientious. Those who would rank low on conscientiousness would have half-empty boxes and containers. They probably won’t realise they’ve ran out of stock until the bottles have all been emptied out.
However you choose to arrange your home or office, what’s crucial is to keep it clean at all times. Whether you’re an extrovert or introvert, having a clean living space would give the best kind of impression.
