I’ve come to learn over the years that Orderliness has 3 key attributes that help us understand this particular character strength: Order of priorities, order of time, and order of goods. I think my son’s lack of flushing falls under order of priorities.

It is actually within a peaceful and harmonized state of mind that creativity will flow easily.
When our lives are well ordered, we create a beautiful melody.
As individuals, when we are lacking order, we strive for it. Many times we put pressure on ourselves to get our lives "in order,” or to attain more order than the people around us.
