    Default Correlation between shoes and MBTI

    Today something interesting occurred to me. Most of my coworkers wear either loafers of some sort or boots. Conversely my dress shoe of choice is the oxford. So I wonder is there any correlation between the type of dress shoes one prefers to wear and his or her personality type?

    Incidentally, my company has a business casual dress code.

    I wear tennis shoes. Before that I wore anti-static hard-toe boots. Before that I wore basketball shoes. Before that I used to ear anti-static hiking boots.

    I usually wear a set of shoes for a long time till I change. Prompted by either my shoes falling apart or getting free shoes from work.

    BTW:My type is INTP.

    When I am dressing up, I like to wear a variety of different shoes, depending on my outfit and mood, hahaha that's a very ENFP answer, .

    Does neon-orange colored sandals with mismatching argyle socks correlate with ENTPs?

    Otherwise I usually wear tennis shoes, even on formal occasions (yes, even with suits).

    But my socks *never* match.

    I just don't care about this stuff. It's nearly impossible for me to be formal, or understand the concept of "formality".

    That sounds irreverent, offbeat, eccentric. IMO, it correlates rather well with ENTP.

    I'm a Type 9 INFP, so the pair of black Rockports serves me well. Comfy too.

    I almost always wear the same pair of havianas that I brought back from Brazil a few years ago! I bought them for $2 from a little shop!



    I don't like shoes and don't wear them when I don't have to- when it's cold out I either wear running shoes or high heeled boots!

    I have four pairs of shoes:

    hiking boots
    sandals
    sneakers
    dress shoes

    I've had all of them but the hiking boots for years and they're still going strong - I don't believe in false economies so I always splash out to get good shoes and then they last years and years. My dress shoes are an exception though - because I need them so rarely, they don't need to be particularly hardwearing. They're just plain and simple black lace-up shoes. I just bought the new boots in Italy, since I needed some anyway and where better could there be for buying shoes, eh?

    Very interesting. So far we have three ENTPs that own sandals. Two of which own colorful sandals.

    As an aside, I have never owned sandals.
