Granted, my quirky mindset (aka “moderate”) is such that I’m labeled either liberal or conservative, usually whatever is the opposite of the person I happen to be chatting with. This is one of those many reasons I don’t tend to volunteer a lot of political opinions. So I suppose that, having been labeled as both, it’s easy for such a vapid article to get under my skin.
Then again, there’s just the eye-rolling aspect of it. Surveying political opinions and then having strangers rate the tidiness or stylishness of workspaces? Somebody has a heck of a lot more time on their hands than I do.
Of course, then there’s this David Cronenberg quote:
“All stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you fought against as a youth: you begin to realize they’re stereotypes because they’re true.“
When means… I’m boring and messy? Touché!
