Are You What You Wear? How Our Clothing Affects Our Personality

How we dress plays a significant role in our personal and professional lives. Looking good makes you feel good. 

Science claims that the way you dress affects your mood, personality, aura, and attitude. This phenomenon is termed “Enclothed Cognition“. As a society, we tend to give symbolic meaning to different attire, and hence they also affect how we feel and behave while wearing them. 

What Does It Show?

According to research, you can define an individual’s personality, just by looking at their shoes. Ever noticed Barack Obama speaking to a working class crowd? He tends to address such a crowd with no jacket and sleeves rolled up. This look silently communicates to the crowd that he too was a hard-working citizen. 

Do you remember the 44-page dress code that was issued by Swiss bank UBS? The blueprint highlighted every tiny detail of your attire that may affect your personality. You may think of UBS as control freaks, but they were certainly correct about the fact that every detail of your outfit reflects something about your personality. 

If, for instance, you’re wearing a watch, it may show other people that you’re reliable and punctual. So, when you’re dressing up, always consider, what message you’re giving other people with your outfit. Although there’s no right or wrong in your choice of clothing, you definitely won’t want to give the wrong impression.

The Psychology of Activewear Clothing

Your dressing style not only affects how others perceive you but also the way you feel about yourself too!

If you find it difficult to motivate yourself to exercise, try wearing your gym clothes. Wearing activewear increase your chances of exercising as it’ll remind you to make healthier choices.
