Can People Accurately Judge You by Your Shoes?

According to a recent study by the University of Kansas, people can accurately judge 90 percent of a stranger’s personal characteristics (age, gender, income) simply by looking at the their shoes. While that is not much a surprise, the study also indicated that people can accurately assess personality traits based on shoes.

The study, which was published in the Journal of Research in Personality, concluded that practical and functional shoes generally belong to agreeable people, ankle boots fit with more aggressive personalities and uncomfortable looking shoes were worn by calm personalities.

Very interesting! I guess I would most likely be classified in the ‘uncomfortable looking shoe’ category as I prefer high heels, but I am not sure so sure I would describe myself as having a calm personality! Ha ha ha!

Here’s to uncomfortable shoes and hoping for calm a personality! 🙂

Happy Shoeing!
