    Of course I'm just contributing with a purely empirical observation, I have no clue about the underlying reasons and/or if such an observation can be extended to different cultural settings.
    I'm actually pretty brand conscious. There are brands that I rely on and trust. For example, I do a lot of traveling. I know Tumi Luggage is prestige and expensive. I have had a number of things made by them. Briggs & Riley luggage is better. It is sturdier, more functional, and has a lifttime warrante. It's expensive but not as expensive or prestigious as Tumi. So, I always buy that brand now.

    Why let something you disagree with stop you? If you want to respond, then respond.


    As for me, I can honestly say I know and care nothing about brands. My ESFP brother and I contrast so drastically, our parents find it quite amusing.

    Some brands are more about style, and you are paying for the style. But some are about high quality, and they sell more well-made products, which is why they cost more. Almost always you get what you pay for, style, durability, whatever. This has more to do with whether you want a long-lasting product or something a bit cheaper, that can be more easily discarded. I grew up in a household where we always bought cheap stuff pretty much no matter what. But I kind of value things that are well-made, that will last. When I'm investing in something big, I'd like to see that I have a high-quality product, one of the ways I can help ensure that is to look at who is manufacturing it.

    Although some things like fashion accessories I don't care so much about quality because it's not going to be keeping me warm or taking a beating outside.

    Anyone think wanting the sort of 'officialness' from brand names could link to Te at all?

    I can't stand it when people put down other people's threads, especially for this reason. If they don't like it, they don't have to participate. They can start their own post.

    Enneagram 3 is probably the most brand conscious because they are concerned about the image they project to others and want to be seen as successful. Certain brands give an image of success. MBTI wise, I don't know.

    Least brand conscious? I'm guessing INTx and enneagram 5.

    I know I could normally care less about the brand. I usually buy whatever is the cheapest, as long as the quality is acceptable.

    The answer to the opposite question would be NJ. We couldn't give a rat's ass about advertising. I like to actively deconstruct the bull crap they're trying to get me to believe. I also don't care about wearing brand-name clothing, unless it is of actual superior quality. I want to see and feel the value of the item.
    "... you think deeply about stuff [that] nobody cares about and hardly anybody can understand you." ~ Peguy talking about Ni users. So true.

    I would say NFJs would be the best at not being twisted by the marketing. It takes one to know one and we'd be well aware of the strings they are trying pull at your emotions...

    I will say that I'm proud to be an apple fan boy. It may be expensive and it may be conformist these days, but they never have failed me. It will be cool and it will WORK! thats their brand...

    I'd say this is the opposite of what I assume people mean when they say "brand conscious".
