What kind of genius are you?

By: Jemma Came, Programmes & Marketing Executive 09/08/2017 Categories: Blog

An article by Inc.com has explored the different workspaces of historical geniuses and asked, based on your desk, what genius you might be. Author Geoffrey James looked at ‘15 deeply inspiring workplaces’ from the likes of Mark Twain, Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin. We decided to explore which genius each one of us might be… with some very interesting results!

Laura Riches, Finance and Office Administrator

Desk type: The minimalist

Similar to: Marie Curie

Laura’s very organised approach to work is reflected in her desk – which is super tidy!

Marta Evans, Learning and Change Consultant

Desk type: The organiser

Similar to: Thomas Eddison

Marta fell into a couple of the categories, making her the hardest member of the team to label. She likes to spread out with different tasks, but ultimately, everything is organised!

Jemma Came, Programmes and Marketing Executive

Desk type: Creative clutter

Similar to: Albert Einstein

True geniuses work this way, and I’m not biased at all. My desk may be untidy, but if I need one particular piece of paper – I will always know where it is!

Nicki Kavanagh, Managing Director

Desk type: The garden

Similar to: Virginia Woolf

In her own words, Nicki “loves a good vista”. Unfortunately, Nicki is the only member of the Juniper team who works in an office that doesn’t overlook our garden! Maybe an internal office move is on the cards?

Emily Kavanagh, Marketing Assistant

Desk type: The organiser

Similar to: Thomas Edison

We have another organiser on our hands! Our newest recruit, Emily, likes to keep her desk as clear of clutter as possible. She beleives that a clear desk makes for a clear mind.

Our team is clearly a diverse group of thinkers! I firmly believe that this is one of our strengths. Working with team members who have differing working styles, personalities and skills means collaborating is interesting and the outcomes more exciting!
