Jigsaw Puzzles Reveal Personality

I am sooooooo border obsessive:

University of Bath researchers have found people approach jigsaws in a number of different ways – and if two strategies clash, there can be trouble.

This can lead to subversive acts such as hiding the last piece – to enable that person to be the “winner”.

The study into collaboration said people ranged from ‘border obsessives’ to ‘opportunistic’ jigsaw puzzlers.


  1. I don’t understand how anybody could start working on a puzzle without starting on the border.

    Greg, that should be a capital offense.
