KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Guilty of a cluttered cubicle? Relax. You’re doing us all a favor.

A new study from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands suggests messy desks could be responsible for more organized thinking.

According to MSN, Jia Liu, a researcher at the university conducted an experiment with 49 college students and found messy desks and work spaces tend to cause a desire for simplicity, making people “think in a more organized fashion.”

So don’t fret your haphazardness. Embrace it. And, if necessary, remind your tidy, uptight boss that you’re contributing to the overall organization of your department.

We invite you to upload your cluttered cubicles to our online photo gallery.
