Personality Test by Kim Tomsic

As the bookshelf detective, I love anything with the title SNOOP.  Dr. Sam Gosling, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, has a new book Snoop:  What Your Stuff Says About You.  He says that we express our self (deliberately as well as accidentally) by our things, so what you have in your desk, on your wall, on your counter all speak about your personality.  I wonder what my tin Wrigley's gum container, snow tubing photo, pink retro mouse pad, harmonica, and Vic's espresso frequent punch card (all sitting on my desk)say. Snoop is a fascinating read on its own merits.  I think it could also serve as a great tool for writers who want to develop believable characters.  Whatever your purpose, have fun snooping.

Must read this! Just yesterday I posted pictures of my "before" and "after" bulletin board over my desk on my own blog. There's something about the new year that makes us think of our work spaces, isn't there?
