Are you feeling down and out? Continuously shamed and blamed because you just do not conform to societally prescribed limits of doing ‘all right’ in the eyes of those around you? You become the social misfit, the rebel, the stubborn hard head. You have heard it all…
‘Why do you have to be so scattered?’
‘You have no sense of order’
‘Go to sleep!’
‘Your house is a mess, your life is a mess, your desk is a mess!’
Wait, before you recluse into a corner to avoid all the slamming, listen to this! These are configured moral shortcomings others devise for you. Every human soul has some shortcoming and some limits, reclaim your moral agency, humanity, freedom and life worth, not just for the eyes of others, but for yourself!
Studies have proven you are actually on top of it. Yes, you are. Think about it, you try to keep all neat and tidy but it falls into disarray. If you say yes to a mess, you embrace the universe in its chaotic nature. Messy people may carry stigmas of being imbalanced and apathetic individuals. Actually, if you are disorganized, you have seen the light! You do not let your life be dictated by the ‘neat’ police!
Let it out! Curse away, why don’t you
Do you find yourself at a loss for words, ending up in a stream of curses that turns heads? The myth of curse words has been deconstructed in a study. Those who came up with a higher stream of curse words in a minute had a higher IQ. Cursing is a release mechanism that makes you feel stronger and the end result? Emotionally intelligent, creative, and beautiful geniuses!
Be the proud insomniac
The dreary voices echo in your head, ‘just go and sleep, why don’t you? Look at the time!’
Have you always been scolded for abnormal sleeping habits? Well actually, according to scientific research, night owls have higher IQ scores. If you sleep late, you share the trend with others of high prestige!
We live in a world that caters to early risers. Most schools begin in early morning hours, most of everything else begins in the mornings, and the common life lesson is “The early bird gets the worm.” Early risers seem to do better because of created norms, painting a very negative light for night owls, but research indicates the very opposite.
Why be bothered with dreams when you can do? Stay up with the moon!
What a mess! Or is it?
(MAYBE A COLLAGE OF GENIUS)
So you swear too much, you’re always awake when the rest are in dreamland, and your desk is a total mess!
All of that is good news. A University of Minnesota study reveals that messy desks are linked to geniuses. Your mind will be occupied with important stuff if you’re not always trying to put everything in its place. Messy environments lead to creative workflows
Kathleen Vohs, a psychological scientist, says that haphazard environments are the disorderly breakaway from tradition and provide new and fresh insights. Growing up, society makes you believe that if you have a messy space around you have a messy mind. And years later, the drills continue You were forced to clean up or faced being grounded.
Now get out of your sobbing corner, you cursing, messy night owl! You are a proven genius!
“It’s a law of physics. The hard truth is that the universe itself is dead-set against our long-term efforts to bring order to the chaos in our lives. That’s because the universe loves chaos” – Adam Frank (Physicist)
