Default Male vs Female: Leaving clothes on the floor

Is the habit of dropping clothing on the floor and leaving it there indefinitely, pretty much just a "guy thing"? I've seen it firsthand in the rooms and apartments of males aged anywhere from preteens through late 30s but I wonder if its strictly a male habit or do some women do it too.

The latest was last week when I went to look at a home for sale. The owner (I should know better than to look at FSBOs but it was in a really nice area) explained that the house is currently being temporarily lived in by her 27-year-old son because they (the sellers) already moved to their new house out of state: "And you know how guys are, of course". Well, I do know "how guys are", I suppose, but I wasn't prepared for seeing clothing strewn all over the floor in practically EVERY room: living room, den, two of the three bedrooms, both bathrooms AND the hallway outside the bathrooms. The mom actually commented in a lighthearted way, "It's messy, I know, but he says he always knows exactly where everything is" -- as if that was a good reason not to put things away in drawers or boxes or on hangers. But now I wonder, IS that the male logic, and is it male logic only?

So here's my "inquiring mind wants to know" poll ... it's anonymous, so please be honest, LOL!

My wife is the house slob, not me. She will typically leave clothes strewn around everywhere but the clothes hamper. Then when our maids come for their bi-weekly house cleaning, the hamper will be left piled a mile high when they leave... all the clothes she left laying everywhere.

shuke.. teach your maids to pick up clothing. hah.

I, firsthand, strew my clothing everywhere possible, but limit it to just the bedroom. When I have free time I will pick it all up, do laundry, organize everything... mostly on the weekendds. Then when the work week hits again they start their little piles until the next "break" hits.

It feels nice when everything is neat and orderly, but sometimes it just really isn't feasable. I maintain a balance between the 2 quite regularly.

We both are casual where we leave our worn clothes. My boyfriend is worse than me, especially about his socks.

No clothes on my floors. Once I was able to buy a house, I learned to keep it clean. I never knew when visitors will show up.

My husband and I are both guilty of leaving our clothes on the bedroom floor before hopping into bed after a long or rough day and usually we pick them up off the floor the following day. We do not leave our clothes strewn about the house though.

Ah... we don't anyone visiting us. We love our privacy and both our families live far away (yay!). My mom is a neat freak which is why I'm not.

I'm terrible with clothes. They're everywhere in my room.

I'm a guy and to get the door to my room open you have to football tackle it to push back the wall of clothes behind it. I generally keep the rest of the house pretty clean and tidy but my room is an absolute tip. It's generally because I'll go upstairs to go to bed at about 2:30am and will be way too tired to bother putting my clothes away. Then in the morning I'll shuffle past the mountain of garments strewn all over the floor in search of coffee and won't go back in there until the next night.

I'm a guy and I leave my clothes on the floor because I have hardwood floors and it's cheaper than buying an area rug.
