1/27 (Sat.) Neat Freaks (Host: Gloria Lo)

文章Gloria Lo » 週一 1月 22, 2018 1:29 pm

Dear everyone,
Neat Freaks are everywhere in our lives. For some of them, the problem is serious, while others might not. Maybe….. you are one of them. If you’re not, please interview your neat-freak friends or family members before you come.
Please make any every endeavor to join the meeting. I assure you that there must have a lot of interesting discussions on that day. :lol: :lol: :lol:

We’ll more focus on discussing “Neat Freaks”. OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) will only appear in Q1 and Q2 of Session 1.

2.Were any periods in your life close to the status of “a neat freak” or “an OCD”? What happened at that time? Did it become better later? What’s the reason?

3.Please give us some examples when you lived or worked with a neat freak?

4.How do you know in advance that your spouse-to-be is a neat freak? What are the possible ways to identify them?

5.In the article it mentioned that “messy environments are better for creative thinking”. Do you agree with it? Please share your idea about it.
