The study, published in the Journal of Research in Personality, found that women’s shoes are reliable indicators of certain personality traits. For example, those who prefer stilettos tend to be more extraverted and open to new experiences, while those who prefer flats are more conscientious and down-to-earth.
So what do these specific pair say about me? As you can see, they’re not exactly stilettos (though they do have a slight heel), but they’re also not flats. They’re somewhere in the middle, which, according to the study, means I’m probably pretty well-adjusted. But that’s not all.
The study also found that people who prefer shoes with a lot of decoration are more likely to be impulsive, while those who prefer more simple styles are more likely to be self-disciplined. And these have just the right amount of embellishment — not too much, but not too little. That means I’m probably pretty good at managing my impulses.
So there you have it. If you’re ever wondering what kind of person someone is, just take a look at her shoes. (And if you’re ever wondering what kind of person I am, now you know.)
