Quick Wardrobe Hacks, Depending on Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type
The more you know about yourself, the easier it is to get dressed.
If You Like to Move
If you need to move your body to calm your brain, like some SP combinations, wear your workout clothes under a jacket to convince your fellow Zoomers that you’re in full business-casual. The Moreland would be my first choice, because it feels like wearing a track jacket but looks perfectly put-together.
If You Like Boundaries
If work-life separation is especially important to you, you might be an SJ combination. Or maybe you identify as a different “type,” or you don’t believe in types at all. Either way, you might find some solace in forcing yourself to actually get dressed for work. In real pants. Yes, with buttons. When you’re done for the day, shut your laptop and change into something comfy to get your brain out of work mode. It’s like the sartorial version of not working where you sleep.
If You Like to See People
If you’re an empathetic NF combination who misses human interaction, do some googling and see if there’s an organization in your area that needs volunteers. It’s a great way to make friends and support your community at a time when many people are feeling especially isolated. Whatever you end up doing, machine-washable pieces you can move in, like the Foster pant and Marcia T-shirt, will keep you comfortable.
If You Like to Solve Puzzles
If you, like some NT combinations, find purpose in problem-solving, challenge yourself to plan your outfits for the week. Account for all the usual suspects, like weather and your schedule for the day, but also factor in some random variables: wear an outfit that matches your dog’s fur on the day you plan to take a long walk together, or choose your most celebratory dress on the day you plan to have your favorite lunch (if you need me, I’ll be very carefully eating jajangmyun in the James dress).
Personality tests don’t have all the answers, but they can still be fun tools for self-reflection. And that’s something we could all use right now.
