“Show Me Your Shoes and I Will Tell You Who You Are”
Surely you have a favorite pair of shoes that, even if their condition suggests they should be changed, you practically don’t get out of the way. Did you know that this doesn’t just mean that you just like this model a lot, but it also says a lot about your personality and your approach to life? I’ll tell you what exactly.
If you are interested in your personality type, look at The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) – it is a behavioral assessment that calculates how people perceive the world and make decisions.
Neurotic, individualist, successful woman or romantic? Each of these personality types is assigned a certain footwear model.
If your favorite shoes are flats, you’re probably an incurable romantic, but there’s more. These shoes are also chosen by practical women who value comfort and often put it first. The colored dancers, eg. pink, are usually worn by women who would like to stay young for a long time or just feel that way. Another theory says that the lovers of the timeless French style focus on the dancers, who love style more than fashion.
In the case of stilettos, there are two versions: either you like to dominate and emphasize your position (e.g. in business) or you want to increase your sex appeal and feel feminine in all circumstances. High heels optically streamline the silhouette and make it more beautiful. So, if you often wear your favorite pair of pumps, it means you care about your appearance and love to look flawless, no matter the situation. This predilection can also indicate perfectionism.
The wedge shoes, espadrille, décolleté or ankle boots that are, indicate that you are a woman who combines the characteristics of lovers of heels and ballet flats.
You appreciate pragmatism, but you certainly like to emphasize your femininity and your body values.
The choice of these shoes can also indicate a certain degree of hesitation that you try to fight by focusing on compromises.
Wearing sneakers often can mean you’re a self-confident tomboy who knows her strengths well and doesn’t need to exalt them with high-heeled shoes. These shoes can also indicate the exuberance and creativity of the woman who wears them. If, on the other hand, when you put on sneakers, you are afraid of being perceived as masculine, this could mean that you have low self-esteem and that you do not accept your femininity. What do men’s style shoes say about you: oxfords, moccasins and loafers? This type of footwear is worn by relentless, ambitious and self-confident women. Prefer unconsciously shoes in men’s style – like oxford, the loafers, the loafers or brogues – may be a sign both a markedly feminist that an interest in fashion.
If you opt for this type of shoe, you probably don’t like to torment yourself with what others think of you.
Do you often wear chunky ankle boots with a lace-up upper? Then you may have the problem with trusting others, you are reserved and you love to close yourself in a "protective armor". There is also a more optimistic theory about those who wear boots and bikers:
You feel independent and self-sufficient, you also love being with the family and you know that this type of footwear is ideal for most situations, when instead of shoes you prefer to think to your loved ones.
