Mess Makes You More Creative – Read, 

listen and learn a little English!







According to Kathleen Vohs, a marketing professor at the University of Minnesota, working in a messy space can boost creativity.  In an experiment, she put 48 people into messy or tidy rooms, and asked them think of new uses for Ping-Pong balls.  The people in both rooms came up with about the same number of ideas, but, the messy room subjects came up with more highly creative ideas; five times more to be precise.  So, do you need to make your workplace messier?  Maybe not!  When interviewed by Inc. Vohs agreed that a messy room may be best for brainstorming, but an orderly setting might be better for a fast meeting where a quick decision is required.
