Your desktop = You

How you arrange your desktop icons and your wallpaper of choice can represent what kind of person you are. According to psychologist Donna Dawson;

Desktop with icons strewn across the screen - the owner is disorganised and tends to lose focus easily

Even icons on each side - owner values balance and proportion and tend to keep a cool head in tricky situations. Likely to be organised and dislike clutter

Desktop with many rows of icons - reflects a person who needs everything to hand, likes to feel in control and on top of their life, while at the same time revealing a tendency to be slightly disorganised

Personal photos as wallpaper - indicates the kind of person you are and what priorities you have. Often a parent will have a photograph of their child, or a keen traveller will have a photo of an exotic location. Photos of friends shows popularity, useful in work environments where you need good people skills

Plain blue wallpaper - suggests the kind of person who likes to keep their personal lives private

Trophy photos as wallpaper - Choosing pictures of past successes can suggest a big ego and someone who glories in their past successes so choose carefully!

And here is my desktop as I'm posting this:

desktop (800x500)

The layout of my icons is highly dependant on the image composition of the wallpaper I currently put up, and my wallpaper of choice revolves every month. So what does it says about me?
