Messy People of the World Unite (if We Could Only Find Each Other)

I recently read in a New York Times article that messy work spaces promote creative thinking. Scientists concluded after a series of experiments that “Disorderly environments seem to inspire breaking free of tradition, which can produce fresh insights.”
According to this study, I must be very creative. (Joanna Marple's blog where she interviewed me a few weeks ago has a picture of my art-making space after I tidied up).
How about you? Are you more disciplined/conscientious or are you prone to "creativity"? (Ha, that's my excuse for the rest of the house when my husband accuses me of hoarding tendencies.)
