13 Things Your Home Says About You

Posted by Steph Kaye on Friday, April 29th, 2016 at 9:07pm.

Regardless of your housekeeping skills, income status, or eye for interior decorating, your home is saying a lot about you.  While you may not be inclined to express your political views or announce your weight, your home has a very big mouth and it is ready to tell all.  

 

1. POLITICAL VIEWS

Cleanliness is next to conservatism.  According to a study in the journal of Political Psychology, conservatives tend to enjoy tidy, organized, well lit rooms.  It would seem that they collect greater amounts of sports memorabilia, cleaning products, and American flags than those of their liberal rivals.  The other side of the coin reveals that Liberals tend to appreciate a more "lived-in" environment with clutter, music, greater variety of reading materials, maps, and colors.  Conservatives tend to reflect their traditional views in conventional decor.  Liberals allow the chips of decor to fall where they may as they embrace a more ecclectic look.  

2. FAVORITE TV SHOWS

While we all enjoy such televsion amenities as Netflix, Hulu, Smart TV, and anything we can stream, all of these wonderful perks collect data on everything you watch.  Commercials are largely selected based on what you watch.  You may turn off data sharing on your TV in order to regain your privacy.  

3. WITH WHOME YOU LIVE

Dirt has the abiliy to determine the sex of those living in your home.  Men and women shed different types of bacteria and the fungi in your dust can be scientifically examined to determine all sorts of things, including where you live down to about a 150-mile range. 

4. INTROVERT / EXTROVERT

A red front door is a pretty good indication that you are not afraid to share what's on your mind.  You like to say what you think.  Blue doors open up to a home owner who is usually at ease in most settings.  Green is for those who hold more traditional values and black means you are likely on the more reserved side and very consistent.  Extroverts enjoy a home with spacious, open furniture layouts.  Introverts appreciate soft, solid colors and muted patterns. 
 
 

5. HOW MUCH YOU WEIGH

A student at Cornell University performed a study which revealed that women who had a single box of cereal in their kitchens were about 20 pounds flufflier thant those who had no cereal in view.  Even flufflier still were the women who had pop cans sitting out.  They weighed roughly 24-46 pounds more.  Those with bowls of fruit in their kitchens averaged 13 pounds less than those who did not. 
 
 

6. FREQUENCY OF INTIMACY

People with gray bedding, walls, or furniture tend to maintain half the level of intimacy as those with purple decor.  If you're looking for more action, go for red and pink.  White and beige tend to inhibit intimacy as well.  

7. HOW OCD YOU MIGHT BE

The socks have it!  Orderly and detailed people have messy sock drawers.  Probably becaues they have more important things to prioritize and organize.  If you have an organized sock drawer, this might be an indication that you need professional help.

 

 

8. MILLENNIAL VS. BABY BOOMER

Under 35-er's tend to have lots of photos of themselves.  While prior generations considered this practice to be a tacky one, interior designers state that millennials are much more inclined to show off their well-practiced selfies. 

 

 

9. LONELINLESS

People who take longer showers don't usually experience a sense of isolated lonliness.  Perhaps a hot bath and steaming shower are suitable substitutes for emotional warmth.  

10. DESPISE YOUR JOB, HATE THE GYM

If you are not someone who invests in the art of bed making, you probably loathe your job and despise the gym.  Those who make their beds each morning have been found to enjoy their jobs and exercise on a regular basis.  Psychologists believe that happy people aim for order in thier lives rather than the chaos of habitual disorganization.  

 
 

11. SUSCEPTIBILITY OF BEING ROBBED

If your home has a sliding glass door or single-pane windows, you might want to register for a self defense course.  You are more likely to be burglarized as both are easy entry points for burglars. 
 
 

12. ANXIETY LEVEL

The majority of homes owners, even the tideist of the tidy, have messy spots either under their beds or in their closets.  If you don't, you might be an anxious person.  The more anxious the person, the more effort that person tends to contribute to an organized environment.  It's a control thing.  

13. WHETHER YOUR KIDS ARE WELL-READ

In 2014, a study was performed which revealed that your children's grade level reading performance can often be determined by the number of books in your home.  Homes with at least 100 books housed children who read one and a half grade levels above those children with fewer books in their homes.
