    Default Crazy Hair/Clothes

    Which types are more likely to experiment with odd hair colors? Why? Is it to express individuality? Non-conformity? Differentiate yourself from the pack?

    Im talking about those with like blue, pink, green, like that color hair. Some people seem like they want to portray some sort of character or something in the way they dress, like they die their hair and black dress in dark colors? Is it to express some sort of feeling?

    Do people judge you differently if you choose to dress in a peculiar manner?

    As a teenager, I had a LOT of hair experimentation. Green, blue, purple (I'm not talking about highlights. I'm talking about my WHOLE HEAD). Tbh I was the literal definition of teenage angst around 14 (which is when most of the hair experimentation was), and the reason I stopped was because it's too much work. My hair is naturally dark so in order to dye it vibrant colors like that I had to bleach it first, which damaged my hair a lot. Now I don't do anything to it.

    Why did I dye my hair so much in so many different colors? Dunno. I wanted to. I liked it. It was fun.

    I never did any "clothing" experimentation, though.

    Hambeasts without a real personality, so they change hair colour to differentiate.

    I never really understood it, I always thought it would be annoying as all hell to have like blue hair because then all people would do would be to ask you about it. I always thought those people were kind of attention whores.

    I've never felt the need to go to such extremes to express myself. Then again, I don't really like being the center of attention. At all.

    Plus I think having bizarre hair and clothes limits you in your career options. Not a lot of businesses are going to hire you, because it looks unprofessional.

    I almost think that the popularity of trying to be different from other people has kind of done a 180 on normality. Nowadays it seems like it has become 'normal' to experiment with odd colored hair/ give your child an exotic name. It seems like trying to be unique has become so mainstream, that those that stick to tradition are actually becoming the minority.

    I myself have dyed my hair just to see what it looked like and because I became bored with it. But Ive gone blonde, red, darker brown, those sort of colors. Dying your hair purple seems restricting instead freeing kind of like what Badoctopus said

    I dyed my hair blue at my high school graduation. My dad thought it was inappropriate because it wasn't reverent enough, or that it was embarrassing, or something like that. My mom and my grandparents thought it was amusing.

    Yes, I think I was doing it at the time to be an attention whore.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    While I've never dyed my hair an unnatural color or worn crazy clothes, I do have a tendency toward this kind of thing. I got my navel and tongue pierced when I was a teen ager, I desperately wanted pink hair and a bindi on my forehead when I was in middle school. I like my style to reflect my personality and tastes, so I do dress a little 'funky' sometimes and I have a visible tattoo as well.

    For me it comes down to being able to do what I want. I enjoy being creative and there's no palate besides myself that I can imagine feeling free to experiment with as I choose. I don't like to do stuff that's too 'loud' because I really do not want to be hassled or questioned about it. I do it for me, I do it for fun. Life's not for blending in, or for sticking out. To me it's about doing neither of those consciously, trying to reject those notions as completely as I can, so I'm not hindered by some arbitrary societal norms when it comes to things so inconsequential as style choices.

    Is this something indicative of high Fe, high Fi? Is it type related, or just a matter of personal preference?

    I think it's more just a matter of personal preference. Perhaps the motives for why people do it are somewhat type related. Maybe Fe would do it to "fit in" with peers who do the same, whereas Fi would be more likely to do it as a form of self-expression and to "stand out"? Who knows. Me, I really just did it because I liked the vibrant colors.
