What do you pay attention to when you visit your friend’s place? Some people look at the decor and the furniture, others look at the kinds of books that are on the shelves (if there are any books at all), and some people just play with the cute pet the person lives with. Few people actually pay attention to a mess even though it can say a lot about the person who made it.
Clinical psychologist Arina Axenova and other specialized sources, analyzed what messes in different parts of a home may indicate. But bear this in mind: It’s impossible to make a conclusion about someone’s psychological problems based solely on the location of various objects in their house.
A mess near the entrance or in the hall of a home often indicates a fear of communication. By leaving bags, umbrellas, and other things in this part of the home, people block themselves from others. Such people have trouble meeting new friends, and big groups of people make them uncomfortable. It may also indicate chronic fatigue and a desire to finally get some rest.
Loads of dirty dishes and filthy kitchen furniture indicate emotional instability. It’s possible that the owner of the apartment with a cluttered kitchen suffers from depression or anxiety. If this is true, it means that this person constantly has to overcome their demons in order to do the simplest things like taking a shower or doing the dishes.
Another possibility is that the person is narcissistic and frivolous. When presented with 2 choices — something they need to do and something they want to do — they choose the latter (this is why they postpone doing the dishes for a later time). They don’t think about the future often.
