There seem to be lots of theories about this. A prominent one is that your desk should look "busy" so that people think other people are hiring me and they want to hire me too. Another one is that your desk should be empty so that people can see you are organized. I think personality has a lot to do with what people's desks look like and doesn't really impact their performance at all, but I wonder if it impacts what people think of you.
My desk looks like the first option on steroids. Any thoughts?
