    I am messy so no pics I tidy when people come over to my place. Besides that, I wait things to pile a bit then tidy. My clothes are organized according to style(work, life then pants, dresses, etc), my books and other things are organized that way though. Some rooms are always tidy if I generally don't use them.

    This room is small and not mine so it may look messier, but my level of messiness close to this:



    However, things never get close to this :

    I'm not organized, I don't have a pic but my desk is messy. My fiancee tells me that any room I enter suddenly becomes messy. I leave cabinet doors open, leave things in random places, put things in the wrong place. She always yells at me for not putting things in their right place. She has a specific place for everything.

    She says she gets really stressed out when things are messy and feels much better when everything is organized around her, she insists that I do too. I do like it when everything is clean. But I really try to avoid cleaning and when I do I just kind of look around and wonder what I should do, she tells me to clean something then I ask her what I should clean lol. She tells me and I just follow what she told me to do.

    But she really gets mad at me for being so messy, it's a pain point.

    EIE - LSI domestic life lol. I don't want to argue about their types but this is what it's like living with my fiancee.





    and yes she has literally vacuumed our vacuum before.

    I don't think I'm messy. Everything is in a specific place, but I also don't really touch anything so it never gets a chance to get messy. Hmm...maybe I am organized.
    For me things tend to get dusty than messy. Since I don't touch anything they just stay there and gather dust most times.

    I also have that weird thing where everything needs to be in a specific place...what is that about? Like if I'm sitting somewhere and a book isn't aligned perfectly I can't concentrate on anything else. I used to think I had OCD at one point.
    Even if something is messy, everything has it's place in the mess. My mother hates when I do it. She'll touch something and move it somewhere else and it really annoys me.

    sadly my apartment is rather like a landfill right now, i just stay on my couch most of the time like it's a ship in an ocean of garbage. i've been having this problem for a very long time but it's the worst it's ever been. i'm scared of all the objects. i'm scared i can no longer organize anything. i'm scared i'm too incapable. everything seems insurmountable and that i can never gain the energy i need to not only fix it (that would be huge) but to then maintain it. sadly i always fall into this inertia slump where i need energy from the outside, impetus from the outside, structure from the outside. long ago before i began working full time i could manage. i was healthier then and also i had full control over my time, so i could space things in a way that align with an irrational temperament that has very little stamina. i still hope i can get better. i only grasp my peril on and off because i have 9 in my tritype - 9 is great at providing a psychological cushion against the terrifying, that is, until is disintegrates to 6 lol.

    i hate my 9 but i recently have started understanding it in a less self-hating light (recently like a stone skip of a thought here and there) which isn't to say i don't hate my 9 still. but i understand 9 comes in when i can't cope. and although it doesn't help me get better, without i think i'd lose my sanity even more. but it's a holding pattern at best and a sinkhole into increasing oblivion at worst. i am convinced 9 is the darkest type in the enneagram.

    Pretty organized, but I'd choose clean over tidy if I had to pick. I'm okay with a few things strewn about because, well, I live here, but if things are actually dirty it really bugs me.

    Maybe I'll post a pic when I move to the dream loft I've had my eye on the past few months...

    It can get bad at times. I try and clean my room once a week. There was a thread about SEI’s being little piggies….fuck do I relate LMAO!

    I refuse to let anyone see it though and not be a pig in other peoples spaces. I’m only a pig in my own pen

    I’m kinda…messy

    on my own I’m messy, but I have 3 girls. One is a toddler, and one is a slob (she leaves her trash lay out, clothes on the floor anywhere), and my 9 year old EIE can be a slob but she loves to organize and helps me clean up more than anyone here. But I have problems leaving stuff lay out, shoving anything in a drawer, or that I just want out of the way.. throwing clean clothes on the floor to fold ‘later’. Sometimes if I’m feeling down, things can get quite…chaotic. Sometimes I clean and keep organized, obsessively so, but it seems I always revert back into my messy slobbish ways

    anyway, I’m already kinda messy and have a hard time keeping up with everyone and sometimes let it go this morning I walked down stairs and about died because it looked like a tornado went through, and there were like 10 bottles of water at least just sitting around. And I thought, was it like this last night, too?? I need to clean up ugh my husband does say, it’s getting kinda messy in here if I let it go to long, then I feel like shit about myself and it’s a motivator to do something about it.

    i did organize my clothes a few weeks ago and haven’t managed to annihilate it yet, so far so good there

    ill show pics, but I’m not leaving them up. In the name of socionics lol

    Idk There's no pattern for me really, you may find my room perfect one week and a mess the other, but it has to do with my EP temperament, which works in burst of energy. So when I'm on a high I usually put the effort to make everything look great

    Pretty clean - I make sure I vacuum almost every day and dust when need to and pick some stuff up but I'm not really OCD about it. Probably mediocre and 2D Si-ish.

    I'd like to organize my drawers a bit better maybe if I ever found the time - stuff is thrown in there pretty loosely but I don't have messes too big.

    I don't like dirty/messes- but in a strange way I'm more tolerant of that than if a person's home is *too* clean. It makes me think 'Serial Killer.' At Starr they were like that about messes and it seemed sociopathic lol.

    lol what's so impressive about it? =D Yeah I know some people who never vacuum- it kinda drives me crazy. I guess I'm kind of anal/typical gay man John Ritter-like with it.

    I even clean my filters on the vacuum cleaner once every month like you're supposed to and write down when I'm supposed to do it so I don't forget. LOL.

    How is it NOT impressive?! I bow to your homemaking skills my friend. I need to vacuum more, especially with a cat. I thought I was regular until I read your post.

    As with most things, I am inconsistent.

    Sometimes I am more organized: tidy_workspace.jpg.

    Other times I am less organized: messy_workspace.jpg.

    At home, I would often let things pile up for weeks or months and then take a day or two to clean and tidy everything up. I like knowing where my stuff is, though, so I tend to not move certain things around much.

    Cleanliness and hygiene are more important and as such are usually very well maintained, I'd say.

    I am this way with stuff I don't use, or rarely use.

    I have this, too. For instance, I can't stand looking at a wall painting that is even slightly skewed/crooked.




    I am the guy who does this anytime and anywhere something sticks out and hurts my eye, I mean brain.

    At home, my room is organized chaos. It may seem like a tornado hit with papers and books and clothes scattered all over the place, but everything has its spot. But at work, or just anywhere outside my bedroom, like even the rest of my house, I'm the neatest and tidiest person I know. Everything in perfect order and organization. Anything sightly out of place drives me crazy and I fix it instantly.

    I used to be really messy but since I've gotten normal household appliances like a dishwasher, washing machine, and storage closets, usually the only mess is clean clothes piled in the corner unless I'm in the middle of a kava bender

    Atm my place is tidy, save for notebooks and a book on my bed. I'm very casual about organization though. I enjoy organizing sometimes but I'm not very anal about it. I don't enjoy it when my place is ultra organized, where there is a specific place for everything, clothes folded super well. Makes me feel constricted. I kinda want my place to look like there is someone moving and living there.

    I'm not very organized. I try to keep order but it seems to just get away from me. I don't pay attention to how messy my office or house is getting until it gets really bad.

    I'm very organised! Not a clean freak like Monica in Friends, but my IEI colleague did think I had ocd lol. But nope I don't have ocd, I don't even care if it's messy or not actually, it doesn't really bother me, but I think I'm naturally doing things in a proper way so everything is kinda systematic and tidy? I'm just super organised.

    I don't know what, exactly, she meant by this. I was too busy fighting the jackals for my breakfast.
