Project Abstract

Past research has discovered that clutter in the home may negatively affect a person’s well-being and sense of psychological home, which is the need to self-identify with a physical environment (Ferrari 2016). Previous studies have also shown that clutter is related to decisional procrastination, which is the tendency to delay making decisions. Researchers have posited that clutter is essentially the physical form of delayed decision-making (Roster 2019). However, there has not been any previous research on the effects of office clutter. We wanted to assess how clutter in the workspace may impact important work outcomes and behaviors. For this study specifically, we were interested in seeing whether the job level and classification would influence their decisional procrastination scores.
