RE: Clothing: A Powerful Aspect of Our Identity

in StemSociallast year

Thank you so much for reading my blog, friend @quantumg.

I think you hit the clothing issue (for me) on the head. I resent control and clothing (appropriate clothing) is definitely a method of control. Plus, spending time and energy on clothing seems like such a waste (to me).

But, clothes are important to other people. It's like shorthand. People 'read' us through our clothes, among other things.

It was interesting writing this. My daughter vigorously rejects the premise that what she wears at home (with no one around) will have an effect on the way she thinks. None of the studies I read addressed specifically creativity--'free' thinking. My daughter is creative (professional dancer) so she may be correct.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by.

I know the day is over for you. So, have a good night's sleep and a wonderful Monday :)
