Super Tip Tuesday: Some Ways You Can Tell If You’re A “Pack-Rat”

24 Jun


There is a discussion that Pack Rats and Hoarders are one in the same. Some say there is a difference. I feel that they are one in the same. I’ve personally seen self professed Pack Rats and their spaces look VERY similar to the hoarders that I’ve seen. There are some things that I found both have in common:

  1. Emotional attachments to all possessions.
  2. Indecisiveness
  3. Avoidance of behavorial changes
  4. Distorted beliefs on the importance of possessions
  5. Difficulty of processing information

Each of these factors can overlap in various ways, and affect their ability on decision-making and organization.
