Although the NT type is, by most estimates, the smallest percentage of the population, of the four temperaments; I strongly suspect they comprise the greatest percentage of regular participants in this blog. Amiable left this telling comment recently:
As an INTJ, I’m interested in how I present myself to others, and how i’m perceived by them. Only a few years ago did this begin to translate into an interest in style. And really only a year ago did the interest in style become an interest in fashion. And I suspect the interest in fashion is fading, and returning to an interest in style as I learn about what I like and dislike irregardless of fashion
Based on whether or not they care about style and/or fashion, The Conceptualizer (aka Rational) will tend to dress completely carelessly or for effect. Sometimes what that looks like is a very cultivated look, such as that worn by the hero’s former boss who looked like a 60s businessman on workdays and a biker on weekends. Another example is a guy who dressed like a gangster (suit, tie, trench coat, and hat) for church.
Why do you suppose it is so much easier to see these tendencies in what the boys wear? Or is it just easier to explain? 😉
