Study Finds 4 Different Kinds of Hoarder Personalities

Thirty-eight percent of the respondents of a recent Irish study, which was conducted by Empathy Research and commissioned by self-storage company NESTA, consider themselves to be hoarders, and thirty-six percent say that their hoarding habits have negative impacts on their relationships.
Four different kinds of hoarder personalities were also established through the said study: Magpie Hoarders, Bargain Basement Hoarders, Stockpiling Squirrels and Fearful Ostriches.
“People with hoarding problems are stuck or trapped in terms of how they live; we should first try to see the person who has been overwhelmed by their possessions rather than the possessions themselves, and to help that person find a way out of a situation when they are overwhelmed and engulfed by what they own,” says Professor Paul Salkovskis from the University of Bath

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
