How you run your life can be determined by how you run your computer, according to a leading corporate psychologist.
Ben Williams told the BBC that a computer's virtual desktop can tell you much about your personality.
Williams said that the way people prioritise the order in which certain things appear on their screen betrays how they set priorities in their lives.
"You can tell whether they are proactive people who are going to make things happen, or reactive people who wait for things to happen and then respond to them," he told the BBC programme Go Digital.
People personalise their computers at the first opportunity with different desktops and software, and this is a good way of working them out.
People who put pictures or toys on their PC spend a lot of time on their computer and are marking their territory.
"Some people tend to stick things to the equipment to make it theirs, or use mouse mats that make political statements," said Williams.
Analysing the computer screen, the images and the way icons are organised can reveal much about a user's inner desires and ambitions.
The appearance of the desktop may also provide powerful insights into how comfortable someone is with technology.
"The person with a lot of whiz-bang stuff is very technology aware," explained the psychologist. "They know how to download these things, install them and store them."
There are also elements of showing off by putting the latest technology on a PC. "It says look at me, I can afford it, I have the most expensive, the biggest, the longest, the hardest, the sharpest," said Williams. "It's that sort of macho stuff."
