How Organized Are You?


The state of your home can say a lot about you. A home that’s full of clutter and lacking in structure can cause unnecessary frustration and stress. Knowing and treasuring the items we own is foundational to the magic of tidying up, according to Japanese organization guru Marie Kondo. Maybe you’ve read Kondo’s books a dozen times or are planning to binge-watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix? What do you think she'd say about your home? Is it a bastion of thoughtful consumerism? Or are you drowning in junk? Are you the type who has a place for everything, or is your house a Bermuda Triangle where things disappear? Maybe you've never given your domestic habits a second thought, but what if your untidy ways have a negative effect on your mental and physical wellbeing? Does your home fill you with joy and tranquility, or stress and overwhelm? Maybe you could use some of Kondo's well-ordered magic. Take this quiz to see if you're an organization master or a clutter-fiend in need of help. Dare a friend to take it too, and see how they measure up.


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Who is Marie Kondo?

Marie Kondo is a Japanese author and organization consultant famous for her organization philosophy the KonMari Method™. Kondo spent five years as an attendant at a Shinto shrine and says the Shinto religion is the inspiration for her method of tidying up. After having a nervous breakdown while trying to organize, Marie says she had an epiphany. Rather than focus on what she should throw away, she shifted her focus on what to keep. Having only items which "spark joy" is the foundation of the KonMari Method, and essentially a Shinto way of living, according to Kondo. Marie Kondo's books have been published in several countries and translated into over ten languages. In 2015, at age 31, she was named one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People."

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
