If you’ve been reading Inside Out Style for some time, you’d be aware that I believe that personality is the most important part of your personal style. This is because your clothes are your second skin. They shield you (or expose you) from the gaze of others. They communicate without you saying a word. They express who you are or how you’d like to be seen. They express your values and your roles in life. They can even express your beliefs.
I’ve seen how putting on a stylish outfit can literally change a woman’s posture and attitude to life. When you look good, you really do feel better about yourself, posture changes and so can so much more (this I’m 100% sure of, given the feedback I’ve received from those doing my Evolve Your Style, 7 Steps to Style and Ignite Your Style Genius programs).
That something that we do every day (get dressed) has such a powerful impact on not only our own psyche but others’ interactions with you as well, means that style is more than skin deep.
Style is a window into your soul.
That’s why I’m so excited to share with you my latest project – 3 years in the making and a labour of love and passion for my co-creators (Jill Chivers and Jane Kise) and me.
The Psychology of Style Unlocked
In this video, Jill Chivers and I discuss more about style Types and some of the background to how 16 Style Types was conceived and more about what you’ll find inside your Style Types Report.
Style Types is your new window into your inner core, into the heart and soul of your style.
Style Types reveals your style DNA.
What’s inside your report and how does it help? Well here I’m going to hand over to one of our testers who has helped us ensure the validity of what we have created and shares her experience:
“The Seven Tips for Stylish Self was an excellent overview of things to think about and consider and many that I’ve thought about but never wrote down in concrete terms. I plan to pin that up as a reminder page to keep my style genuine to my personality.
The 5 Strength and Weaknesses section was validating in my good areas and clearly illuminate my challenges. Criticism is something my personality struggles with, as explained, but the way those challenge areas were written helped me not “stiffen up” inside but rather I could read through them and own up to these problem areas. Several of them are clearly problems for me and I really appreciated knowing why now and not thinking so badly about myself. Not as a crutch or victim of my personality but more of a recognition of my tendencies and being mindful of pitfalls and ways to combat these tendencies.
The Seven Keys to a More Stylish Self portion was also helpful in understanding how I put together my wardrobe and why and also my challenges in letting go as well. Likewise how I approach the rules and why I like parameters is helpful in understanding why I will never be a flamboyant dresser even as I admire others who just go for it. Again, I can only assume the other personality reports will spell out these truths as well and create much-needed clarity and reinforcement of our values so the inside is reflected well with our outsides. Allowing us to get to that point I think will be easier for gals with their personality profile as a guide.” Sara
Style Types is the final key to unlocking your style.
People have tried in the past to relate style to the 16 personalities as defined by Carl Jung and refined by Myers Briggs, but until this point, nobody has done it with any accuracy or this level of understanding and refinement. And we know why – to create these reports has taken over 2 years of rigorous research and validation of the information. The feedback we’ve had so far has confirmed that what’s inside your report is what you’ve never been able to find before – anywhere:
Creepily accurate! Did you get into my head and read my thoughts?? Wow, thank you! – ENTP
Goosebumps!!! Tears of joy having my INFJ challenges clarified and clear solutions offered. – INFJ
Awesome job! It is so thorough and so interesting and I found it very practical and useful! – ESTJ
Wow. It was more accurate for me and in more ways than I’d have expected. It clarified so much about why it often felt like I was hitting my head against a wall. It’s not that I lacked STYLE, I simply had one all my own that didn’t show up in magazines, in corporate boardrooms, or in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. Go figure! – INFP
