Does Werner Herzog's advice include cultivating a messy room?

I didn't notice that advice but at Indiewire, it did include "There is nothing wrong with spending a night in jail if it means getting the shot you need."
It was Elite Daily that investigated the psychology behind messy rooms.
Using a paradigm consisting of one messy room and one tidy room, and a series of trials, Vohs concluded that messy rooms provoke more creative thinking – and provided scientific evidence!
The next question is, what exactly constitutes “creative thinking,” and how will your pig sty of a room help?
Creative thinking, in its purest form, is thinking outside the lines of “conventional” reasoning. When considering this, it should be no huge shock that messy rooms containing possessions misplaced from their “conventional” locations would promote creativity.

A common bit of advice from creatives is to require payment if you are working professionally. A friend shared this on Facebook from Just Music. The artist -Melanie Gillman- seems to have more art here (which, ironically, I am not paying for but at least I do offer a link.)
