    Only thing wrong with that is probably the same old Operating System reported size vs Hard Drive manufactures reported size spiel that confuses most people really.

    As far as OS's are concern 1MB is 1024Bytes.

    HDD manufactures on the other hand say that 1MB is 1000Bytes.

    So when you buy a 1TB drive and install it, your OS will tell you its a 976.6GB drive.

    Wikipedia is going by the Manufactures sizing philosophy.

    That picture with the books piled next to the bed made me feel at home. There is something so immensely comforting about books in scattered piles on the floor. One time I had my entire bedroom floor covered in books. Its the perfect representation of my mind.

    Brilliant! I'll really try to use that technique! I'm a cronical clutter, too. Although I actually find it easier and easier to get rid of things. I also detest things that are purely decoration and has no practical use - they (if present) add to the clutter without adding any value (in my view). The only decoration items I like (and actually collect) are lanterns...

    I sometimes see articles of other peoples homes, and am amazed by the amount of decorations found there (pots, vases, pictures, pillows, table cloths etc). I can't use any of these things - they would soon just drown in clutter and the "decoration effect" is totally counter-effective. Sure, I try to put up photos of my family and ancestors (at least I don't clutter the walls as I do any horizontal surface!), but it often just stays on the planning stage (or perhaps being halfway framed lying in my closet or elsewhere).

    I am not cluttered. I don't have a problem throwing out most things, although i do have a few things that i just won't get rid of. It was hard for me to get rid of the baby clothes that my son just grew out of. However i am EXTREMELY messy.

    For example when coming home from the store or somewhere: I walk in the door, toss my keys in one direction, take off my jacket and toss it over the couch. I take my pants off and leave them where i took them off, they might even stay there for days. My room is covered in clothes that i tried on, but was too lazy to hang back up. If you look in my living room right now the scrabble game that i played 2 weeks ago is still on the table, because i don't feel like putting it away. There is a bra hanging off the couch and all my shoes that usually belong in the closet are all piled up by the door.

    Hahaha no wai :'D

    My room is very cluttered most of the time with books, lots of notebooks, clothes etc. and I don't really notice~
    And the cats (they are really elephants) like to play with what ever I have on the floor :rolli:

    Sometimes I think 'ha, I'll put everything in the right places and clean up', but of course it's not that easy
    I'll start somewhere, there's stuff I don't have a place right now so I'll just put it there with the other stuff. Eventually I get the one place in order, with more piles in other places. At this point I'm bored or tired and go do something else, and my room is not so much less cluttered

    I hate the mess I live in. My husband was an INTJ/INTP when we were first dating. Somewhere along the way, he's lost the J.... I think he only had it to begin with because ALL of his family are "J"s, so he knew no other way to operate. He's was really clsoe on that one to begin with.

    Oh, my point is that I can relate to him better now, but I misss the J to help me make decisions. I need help making a decision/convincing to throw stuff away. I want to, but I have trouble deciding. he's also kind of a packrat. Ugh! I have it. I am too perfectionistic to clean. I start in the kitchen, but then I end up rearranging drawers and stuff rather than doiong the dishes. I am a mess lol
