View Full Version : Mood Predictor/Indicator???
10-09-2007, 08:08 AM
I made a quick decision about my clothes for today. When I got to work, my co-workers commented on my "dark" clothes...."Steve must be in a bad mood!"
and they're right. I am. It's been a rough couple of days, and I feel like I could just snap if someone says the wrong thing to me.
Funny. they could sense that from my clothing choices.
or perhaps it is the scowl I'm wearing on my face. :mad:

I used to deliberately dress for my mood. As it turns out, though, that's also a really good way to carry said mood throughout the day (not always a good thing).

I buy my shirts 10 at a time, same every day. The last group I got 5 gray and 5 green.
Not bad. Cool days I wear the green, hot days gray.
I have printed t-shirts too if I really want to spice it up. shorts in the summer jeans in the winter.
People can tell my mood by my first sentence in the morning. I'm usually up. I'm told I'm to tense. My good friends laugh at me others fear me! Well the dogs do anyway.

A male friend once got upset with me because I wore my hair in a ponytail during a contentious time in our relationship. He said that means that a woman is confronting an issue with anger and anxiety. It was weird, but he read it in a book somewhere.

I have never heard about the ponytail theory, but I know that not so much with my clothes, but my hair, helps to indicate my mood at least to myself. I remember when my older brother died fifteen years ago, I cut my hair almost to the point of crew cut as a symbolic gesture of my grief. It showed on me physically to those around me as well. I like to wear many different types of things, but dresses or skirts are the most definite choice when I am up and happy. I wear them quite a bit. :)

Wow, I wear a ponytail every day, so don't think it's an indicator of a bad mood.
My choice in wear depends more on what's up at work (or home), what's clean, what takes less time to iron, and do I need a suit or will business casual suffice. If it's home, then do I need jeans, is it cool enough for shorts, or lazy enough for sweats. If I'm going out, then whatever will make me look thinner and stay cooler while dancing! :D
