Where Do You Think Best?

You Think Best in Your Bedroom

In order to be able to think, you need to feel like you have some privacy and space.

It's likely that you spent a lot of time in your bedroom while you were growing up. It's your sanctuary.

You need a high level in control in your life, especially when you have something important to do.

The best thing about your room is that it's exactly the way you like it. Having things the way you want allows you to relax and think.


  1. I'm not sure about the results on this one - it says I think best outdoors.

    In order to be able to think, you need to clear your head. And in order to clear your head, you have to get moving.
    There's nothing like getting your heart pumping and breathing fresh air to drive you to greatness. Exercising outdoors makes you feel on top of the world.

    There's nothing more awe inspiring than the beauties and challenges of nature. Being outside really puts your life in perspective.
    You feel powerful when you're moving through a natural setting. You're more likely to think boldly and trust your instincts.

  2. I think best when I'm driving/traveling in the car. Mine is very true for me. My husband does most of the driving now but when I'm on the road is the best thinking time for me.

    In order to be able to think, you need to be able to have time to think. Problem is, there isn't a lot of time for that in your life.
    When you are driving, you are finally able to let your mind wander. And it wanders to some pretty interesting places.

    Depending on the conditions, driving can make you feel elated, relaxed, or even frustrated. All of these varying emotions spark a lot of revelations.
    While the thoughts you have while driving may have a lot of noise in them, there's definitely some insight to be found.

  3. Apparently I think best at a coffee shop ... I'm not too sure about the creativity killer thing, though. I actually get my best ideas lying in bed at night, when all is quiet in the house!

    In order to be able to think, you sometimes have to pull yourself out of a rut. All it takes is a change of scenery.
    You are inspired by any one of your senses. The smell of coffee, the taste of a latte, the feel of a comfy sofa, the sounds of conversation...

    For you, there's no such thing as too much stimulation. If anything is a creativity killer, it's dead quiet.
    The bustle and changing scenery of a coffee shop prevents your mind from being hung up on one or two things. A dynamic atmosphere gets your ideas flowing.

  4. Definitely the best would be the one you are happy to do it, follow your own decisions, not the decisions of others

  5. Kathy-- Actually I think your results fit me better than mine did!

    Margot JR-- I hate to drive, so I'm very fortunate to be married to a wonderful driver who likes to do it. I can get a lot of good thinking done sitting in the passenger's seat, come to think of it!

    Belle-- The coffee shop definitely wouldn't work for me. The smell of coffee brewing makes me nauseous!

    HHO-- Following my own thoughts and feelings has always worked best for me.

  6. I think best outdoors - that's absolutely true. Actually some of my best ideas come to me while I'm mowing on my Cub Cadet: I mow about 4 acres, too much I know. I also think well just walking.

  7. Mine is outdoors -- and I cannot argue with that.

  8. Barbara-- I used to mow all the time, and you're right: it's the perfect time to think.

    Beth-- There's just something about fresh air and looking up at the sky.

  9. Mine was the bedroom too, but I'm hardly ever in there! Maybe I'
    d think better if I spent some more time :)
