Have you ever given much thought to what your kitchen, office, car, or bedroom says about you? According to psychologist Dr. Gosling, personal spaces such as bedrooms and offices are an incredibly rich source of information about people’s personalities. A lot can be learned from the things we own and how we arrange them. Bits and pieces of our everyday life offer clues about our likes and dislikes, interests and hobbies, and even political and sexual preferences. Scary! Well, if you are single like me, it could be scary.
So, I decided to take a look around to see what my “stuff” says about me. I realized my bedroom does reveal quite a bit about me — more than I actually thought. I don’t know exactly what it says about my personality, but someone could absolutely draw conclusions about how I spend my day, and perhaps a few of my quirks.
Here’s a glimpse of a day in my life:
I drink a lot of water but rarely finish a bottle all the way.
I should own stock in Apple with Samsung being a close second.
I am ready for any ailment that might come my way.
My eyesight is going and I have bad allergies.
I dislike the feeling of dry chapped lips.
Sometimes the sun shines really bright into my bedroom before I’m ready to wake up.
I am organized, but sometimes messy.
My life is one big schedule.
I still like to generate ideas with a pen and a piece of paper.
I am spiritual and Byron Katie helps me be introspective.
I don’t have enough closet space.
Feeling comfortable and content makes me happy.
I travel a lot.
Having my things close by is reassuring and convenient.
I like being warm and snuggly.
If someone took a snapshot of your bedroom, what would it say about you?
