    I clean when enough stuff gets piled up that even I notice them (as in them getting in my way). The alternative (and more typical) is when I think the mess will offend somebody whom I share the space.

    This took place the other day at my apartment:

    *trash falling noise*
    My ISTJ roommate: Did you the mountain fall? (referencing my little trash can in my room)
    Me: Nah. I just turned the mountain into two smaller hills.
    Roommate: *walks in* *incredulous look* You aren't going to take it out?
    Me:
    Roommate: *sigh* *comes back in with a big trash bag and helps me empty it out*

    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    I strongly prefer clean rooms, but I'm only fairly recently starting to develop good habits to make it so. So what ends up happening is it'll slowly build up until after a few days (or occasionally weeks) I'll get sick of it and tidy up the clutter.

    Garbage or dishes lying around are gross though, and I try not to leave those around longer than a few hours.

    I hate cleaning, I like my mess. Stacks of history books, maps, papers and other writings... it looks very proffessor-like.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    My workspace/room are never, ever properly cleaned. Mostly because I always have some type of project going on, and I always need to have more things near me than are actually possible to have neatly arranged.

    All the other rooms, I keep clean.

    I like clean rooms better than unclean ones, but in the past have often just allowed rooms to go dirty rather than acting on this.

    A habit that i was able to make in the recent apartment, that i strongly recommend other people develope who like rooms clean, is to put things away (put food in the garbage, put books/papers/CDs, etc. back, and other such things), rather than letting it pile up. It takes less time overall, and does not produce a scary looking big mess that scares people off from getting it cleaned up.
