when I was boss, I was always little suspicious of a "clean" desk. In my experience, the hardest workers often had the messiest desks. IMO of course

it is a sign of high intellect...I truly believe it and I am a member of Mensa

DavidJun 3, 2021, 7:51 PM

Who do you get into Mensa? An IQ test?

Anthony WatsonJun 3, 2021, 7:51 PM

yes...IQ must be in top 2% of society so it fluctuates a little bit depending on how smart your "era" is

DavidJun 3, 2021, 7:52 PM

Great desk Bruno Molteni. I got to up my speaker game, we have a broken surround sound system.

DavidJun 3, 2021, 7:52 PM

Anthony Watson so if your IQ is certain number, they just let you in? Do you get a Mensa card to prove it?

David IF I was a genius presumably that would be from birth when JFK was president. I eschewed Mensa because it was a whole bunch of poor smart people. However, as times got tougher and I had no degree the tech industry really wanted college. To survive I joined Mensa to give a certification for the CPU size I was born with. However, I know the most important thing is CQ not IQ...character quotient. IQ is just like having red hair or being tall. It is a thing but not the only thing. Jeez. I only speak one language I have no claim to being a genius. BUT the clean desk dirty desk is a long debate of my career. i had to weigh in. IQ is ONE measure of problem solving but only ONE. I perform well there, but what if you ask me to fix my car...well I am mechanically retarded and I would be challenged. I have done it of course, but I recognize the diversity of intellect...there are many facets to it.

Anthony Watson I didn't realize how much Mensa was bridging the meritocracy over certification gap. Very interesting!

GuyJun 3, 2021, 8:15 PM

Anthony Watson couldn't help but notice the massive chess board behind you, do you have an elo/rating??

Anthony WatsonJun 4, 2021, 12:06 AM
:chess_pawn: 1

Guy I have never played in an international tourney so I only have a USCF rating That scale is rating 2200 is a National Master 2000 is Expert 1800 is Class A 1600 Class B ...my high water mark was 1976. My current rating is a semi respectable 1700 only because the USCF started putting a "floor" on people's ratings. because it got so high even if I play crappy it will never go below 1700. I think it is also a ploy to get old guys to play and give up rating points to youngsters without the additional humiliation of a triple digit chess rating.

Anthony Watson oh wow! That's impressive man! I started playing a bit recently and had no idea how much depth the game has, making me feel proud of my messy desk now, maybe you could give me a couple lessons๐Ÿ˜‰

GuyJun 4, 2021, 1:43 PM

I got it in browns and wouldn't class it as a "loud" keyboard, I used to rock a Ducky one2 in browns which was a lot noisier ;)

Bruno Molteni So glad you could come here and defend the fact that the state of one's desk is a matter of taste and not a sign of intellect or productivity ...despite my own bias on the matter. I guess the thread officially got to 100 "lurkers" since we are both here.๐Ÿ‘ฝ
