    Simply put, I have always found making the bed to be one of the most pointless things ever conceived.

    I used to but my wife doesn't and I'm not going to fight her on it.

    I always make the bed because my cat lays on the bed mostly because it's a lazy bum and I don't want cat hairs on my sheets, make the bed lay down the duvet and it's all good. Bit of extra effort in the morning but life isn't meant to be leisure cruise all the time, so my Dad tells me.

    In winter yes. In summer, if it's just a sheet, then there's not really much point. If I sleep with no covers then there's nothing to make.

    The way I look at it, someone made the bed before I bought it. I just sleep in it.

    I usually just make sure the comforter and top sheet is mostly covering the bottom sheet. But I'm not OCD about it. I dont care if my beds a bit unkempt cause I'm gonna be sleeping in it at night. Plus I've usually got about 10 media device controllers and books and a few items of clothing on my bed.

    Every morning! And I spray a mix of water and vinegar, for the dust mites. (3 parts of water - 1 part of vinegar), the vinegar evaporates quickly and doesn't leave any undesired smell, in case you're wondering.

    I make the bed every morning. I'm a very neat person: my bookshelf is the only untidy part of my room because I can't figure out how to make room for all my Funko Pops, books and movies.

    https://www.powerofpositivity.com/what-does-your-bed-reveal-about-your-personality/

    “In a survey of 68,000 people by Hunch.com, 59 percent of people don’t make their beds. 27 percent do, while 12 percent pay a housekeeper to make it for them. Here’s what disturbed me: 71 percent of bed makers consider themselves happy; while 62 percent of non-bed-makers admit to being unhappy. Bed makers are also more likely to like their jobs, own a home, exercise regularly, and feel well rested, whereas non-bed-makers hate their jobs, rent apartments, avoid the gym, and wake up tired. All in all, bed makers are happier and more successful than their rumple-sheeted peers.”

    I usually fix it, but not specifically as neat as possible.

    I usually fix it so the sheet is even and such, but I don't necessarily thoroughly make it.

    Studies like that are nonsense.

    Are they taking into account whether those making their beds are doing so because of a romantic partner? Are the happy ones happy because of the romantic partner? Are the unhappy ones unhappy because of their ****ty life, a particular aspect of their ****ty life, or is their ****ty life caused by an unorganized mind and the lack of bed making is a symptom rather than a cause? Is it a combination of multiple factors? Is their an environmental aspect effecting their happiness and or their bed making habits? Are they not making their beds because they are poor and overworked and exhausted which makes them feel less motivated to worry about something as inconsequential as straight bed sheets? Are they severely OCD and cant get the sheets perfect enough which makes them feel overwhelmed and stressed resulting in depression so they stop trying to make the bed? Do they not feel the need to make the bed because they see themselves as poor and in their opinion bed making is something fancy pantsed suburban people do? Do they have masculinity issues causing them to see bed making as only something women, gay, weak girly boys do? Is Hunch.com really qualified to carry out a scientific study? Did they follow standard procedures that a scientific journal would approve of? Do people that go to Hunch.com, regardless of bed making habits, tend to be happy? Did the people that Hunch.com polled really adequately examine their lives or did they just answer how they thought the pollster wanted them to answer? Did they feel pressure to claim they are happy when they really arent? Etc etc etc.

    Theres about a billion thoughts, beliefs, ideas, mentalities and factors that could be effecting happiness and bed making habits. Reducing it to, "people that make their beds are predominantly more happy" is as uninformative as claiming "people that wear polkadots on every third week of the month feel much more at peace with God."

    I like the questions you are asking, but you really have not presented any data to answer the questions you are asking to prove or disprove the validity of the study.

    People who make the bed every day, also probably like mayonnaise on a hot dog.

    Yuck. I barely tolerate mayo on a BLT or similar sandwich. Never on a hotdog.
