3 Bad Habits That Are Actually Good
These bad habits may sound like they’ll get in the way of your work and personal life, but good news! There could just be a silver lining. Being messy, easily distracted and always running late may be good for you! Read on to find out what these habits say about you.
Have a messy desk? You’re Creative!
Albert Einstein once said “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what are we to think of an empty desk?”. Einstein is not alone. Rumour has it Mark Twain, Steve Jobs, Tony Hsieh and Mark Zuckerberg are all stellar examples of creative minds who work best with messy desks.
If that’s not enough, this theory is scientifically proven. Researchers at Northwestern University found that people in messy rooms drew more creativity and were faster at solving creative problems.
Minimalistic desks is all the rage right now, but messy aren’t necessarily bad either.
Always running late? You’re Optimistic!
Researchers shed positive light on this negative trait, being late is not all bad!
You likely possess Type B personality type which is laid-back, collaborative and creative. You believe more can be done in a limited amount of time, and strive when you’re multitasking. Simply put, you’re fundamentally hopeful!
Barack Obama is so famously tardy, it inspired the Twitter account (@HowLateWasObama).
Easily distracted? You’re Intelligent!
The struggle is real. Intelligent people find it hard to focus as your gifted mind contains way too many ideas and you simply can’t decide which to prioritise first!
Charles Darwin, English naturalist, geologist and biologist and French novelist, critic and essayist Marcel Proust are both examples of geniuses who are distracted by the slightest noise.
