    What kinds of clothes do you wear? Do you stick to a few basic outfits? Do you have a few articles, but mix them to make new combinations?
    Generally, classy. Mostly black and white, with a sense of nostalgia. I like to mix.

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?
    Tidy. I don't iron though, as there is really no need for the clothes I have. I try not to crumple, but sometimes it happens due to the chaos in my closet and me being too tired to bother. I hang the clothes that call for it and try to place those that don't neatly enough on the shelves.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?
    Hmmm... Several favorites I'd say. No one favorite.

    -------
    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?
    Even when I used to have longer hair, I didn't brush. Just showering and drying with a towel worked good enough, I always liked the natural, slightly messy look. Needless to say, I don't brush now either with short haircut. I just make sure it looks good with the help of my hand.

    How tidy do you keep your place of residence in general? Are there any specific areas that you keep cleaner than others? Why do you think that might be? Do you distinguish between messy(papers strewn about, etc.) and dirty(dirty socks, exposed food on the coffee table, etc.)?
    Well, speaking of my own room, it is generally quite tidy. I don't leave anything laying around, I just tuck everything away into my bottomless shelves.
    Messy room bothers me honestly, the atmosphere isn't as pleasant. Granted, I won't really notice it once inside, but upon entering the room, I do. I'm definitely not a neat freak though, I just try not to leave too many things laying around.

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?
    It's because I desire usually, or some people are visiting.

    I dress very simply when I'm not at work. One of 2-3 sets of jeans and a t-shirt. At work I have a nice assortment of clean bohemian work wear. That almost sounds like an oxymoron but I like crazy patterns. And lots of earth tones. I like whites and blacks but white doesn't suit my skin and I don't think I fit that sophisticate persona that goes with all B&W clothes.

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere? What's an iron? I use anti-wrinkle spray. :P I'm bad about putting clothes away directly out of the wash, but I do hang most anything that can wrinkle since I hate ironing so much.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?
    I love my military jackets. They feel very "me." I guess I'm still that grunge kid from high school.

    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?

    Haha, as little as possible... and I hate styling it. I keep my hair very short most of the time because of this.

    I'm pretty messy. Drop things just at random. I just consider compulsive cleaning a waste of time.... granted I don't clean nearly as much as I should. Messy and dirty are quite different. I'm messy, but I'm not dirty beyond letting dishes sit in the sink a bit longer than I should. I've visited friends who have dirty underwear on the floor, garbage on the floor, and that's just nasty.

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?
    I don't feel guilty... it just gets to a point where I know it'll be harder to clean if I let it go any longer. Or people are coming over so it just needs to be done. I'm not ashamed of mess, but I don't want people to feel uncomfortable.

    On dress, specifically:

    What kinds of clothes do you wear?
    Mostly jumper dresses, t-shirts and flat shoes. Dressed this way for over two and half decades, lol. I like either black or navy jumpers, but also those same colors with tiny floral prints or even like whimsical prints like cats, hats, or fruit, etc. Just so long as the print isn't loud and big. I like purple, blue for tshirts. Black for shoes mostly. Only usually have one or two pair of shoes. Never wear shoes unless I leave the house.


    Do you stick to a few basic outfits? Do you have a few articles, but mix them to make new combinations?
    I like to buy clothes at thrift shops, I usually have a wide variety for all my moods.

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?
    If they are wrinkled, I throw them in the dryer.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?
    Not particularly.

    Under the category of general tidyness:
    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?
    When I can find one of my five hairbrushes, yes.

    My hair is babyfine and slippery, so I keep my hair long so I can get away without styling it all the time.

    How tidy do you keep your place of residence in general?
    Lots of papers and books all over. But I hate dirt and filth.


    Are there any specific areas that you keep cleaner than others?
    Kitchen sink, handle on the refrigerator, cutting boards, bathroom.

    Why do you think that might be?
    Being life long germ phobic and having taken mircobiology in college. Growing up in a house where there was a lot of "stomach flu"

    Do you distinguish between messy(papers strewn about, etc.) and dirty(dirty socks, exposed food on the coffee table, etc.)?
    Yes, absolutely. One is clutter, one is filth.

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty?
    To either suit my need or to please those who have to live with me.

    My wardrobe is mostly t-shirts and casual pants. Or striped or plaid shorts. Basically stuff you'd see in an Old Navy commercial. Have a few suits too. I like to wear very sharp dress shirts with flashy ties. I hate ironing. I fold my clothes so they don't wrinkle. But they often sit folded in my clothes basket rather than me putting them away in my dresser.

    My personal hygiene is top notch. I shower at least once if not twice a day since I do a lot of running and I shower after on top of my morning shower. My house is fairly clean too, especially for a bachelor. Even my ISFJ mother is impressed! I tend to have a couple surfaces where papers, books, receipts, bills, etc. get placed and it causes a bit of clutter. Everything else I like to keep neat. I'm not picky about mess, but I like to leave a good impression when friends come over.

    What kinds of clothes do you wear? Do you stick to a few basic outfits? Do you have a few articles, but mix them to make new combinations?

    I try to pick clothes that are flattering to me as an individual instead of trying to follow any sort of fashion. I tend to wear form-fitting tops and jeans or shorts, and lots of sweaters in the winter time. This is more an issue of income than personal style statement - I'm sure if I could afford to I'd have a lot more clothes. Like, I know I would. I do have a few interesting outfits, of course. I like dresses and skirts, but I tend more toward either sexy or playful and casual than businesslike. I don't like buisness clothes.

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?

    I don't iron unless it's for a job and a certain article must be that way for professionalism. I've only encountered this when I used to wait tables in fine dining establishments. I wouldn't go as far as to say that I crumple them up in a drawer, I have my system, but no, I'm not especially organized or tidy.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?

    I really, really like to wear sundresses in the summertime because they keep me cool and look feminine without being too dressy. In the wintertime, I like scarves and hats. I adore cute shoes, but rarely have a place to wear them.


    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?

    I'm meticulous about my hair being healthy - I hate split ends and avoid perming completely and limit dyes - and clean. Sure, I brush my hair, but that's about it. Occasionally I might do more, but that's not really "me."

    How tidy do you keep your place of residence in general? Are there any specific areas that you keep cleaner than others? Why do you think that might be? Do you distinguish between messy(papers strewn about, etc.) and dirty(dirty socks, exposed food on the coffee table, etc.)?

    I do laundry. I take out the trash and wash dishes. I don't leave plates of food rotting on the floor. I think it's important to clean the toilet regularly. Other than that, I'm not very neat. I tend to have papers strewn, and clothes lying on furniture. I'm very aware of clean vs. tidy. Clean is extremely important to me. Tidy, not so much. However, that might be a matter of energy. I know that back when I just worked and wasn't in college I cleaned and organized my living space much more carefully. I think perhaps going to school and working has caused me to slack off on house chores. Something's gotta go, you know?

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?

    It's not "duty." I feel better when I'm reasonably clean. I can't live in absolute filth even though I'm not a neat freak. I do it for my own comfort. If someone else is coming over, or they live with me, I do it for their comfort as well.

    What kinds of clothes do you wear? Do you stick to a few basic outfits? Do you have a few articles, but mix them to make new combinations?

    Have wear around clothes. Just care that they are comfortable and feel like me. Not really big on making statements with clothing, feels tacky, unless I find the statement really amusing, but definitely have combinations that I like/dislike. Normally look at how things complement each other.

    I like to have some clothes that make an impression for dressing up too. Like when going out to the city I normally go casual going out clothes, or look more dressed. I don't really like being under or overdressed for a situation though. One feels like you don't quite fit in, and the other feels like I'm looking down on people.


    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?

    I always used the floordrobe. Though there is order in the sense that I don't walk on stuff I am going to wear, and I don't put dirty near clean. Anything that actually matters gets hung on my computer chair or in the wardrobe. So yeh, I would iron something if it looked horribly creased before wearing it somewhere that mattered, and be pretty conscious of it.


    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?

    Yep. I probably have a favourite and a few backups in each clothing category. But they seem to change a lot depending on mood.


    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?

    I wash it then leave it. Don't think I own a brush.


    How tidy do you keep your place of residence in general? Are there any specific areas that you keep cleaner than others? Why do you think that might be? Do you distinguish between messy(papers strewn about, etc.) and dirty(dirty socks, exposed food on the coffee table, etc.)?

    I actually like any shared areas to be clean just out of respect. I tend to not leave shoes in the middle of the floor, or dishes piled too high, or rotting food. Like I notice surroundings a lot, so am aware of them. I do have papers, keyboards (piano), clean clothes, shoes, etc. on my bedroom floor though. It seems to be easier to just grab them than put them all away carefully in cupboards constantly. And I do an ordering of them and putting them away occasionally.


    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?

    Yeh, eventually it needs to be cleaned and it is nice to have clean. Guilt isn't really a factor, more practicality and effect.

    I usually wear cute, fitted shirts, and I went through this peasant blouse stage of flowy awesomeness. All pretty feminine and cute, I've never been into T-shirts and slacks too much. ^^; I go for sundresses, too. Mostly muted colors, and especially browns. I do mix and match-up, but I have outfits as well. Like this one gray dress thing with black leggings...

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?
    Oh, my clothes are crumpled, but I iron when needed.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?
    Usually I have favorite shoes and jeans.

    My hair requires maintenance, so I either straight-iron or gel it up. I also conditioner-ize it. Headbands and ponytail holders are also necessary tools. I'm only meticulous because I'm vain and my annoying hair requires me to be. :P

    I generally am good about leaving items on dressertops and such, but they're unorganized dressertops. Clothes get tossed on floor. Earrings, God help me, I keep missing one of the two.

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?
    Depends. My mom is harping at me? Guilt. Because I can't find anything? Practicality. :P

    I wear mainly button up shirts with different colored small jackets and jeans or slacks for work. I have to dress professionally but subdued for common sense reasons when working with clients in the field. I mix and match my outfits but I am definitely not fixated on my wardrobe.

    How tidy do you like to appear? Do you iron your clothes? Just crumple them up in a drawer somewhere?
    I'm tidy, but not excessively so--I rarely iron but do have one for that rare occasion.

    Do you have a favorite shirt or other article of clothing?
    I like my black boots because they are very versatile and look stylish with my shorter skirts. I also really love scarves.

    Under the category of general tidyness:
    Do you brush your hair? How meticulous are you with it?
    Well, I have to wash and blow dry my hair (due to high humidity) but I generally put it up with a barrette and don't fuss with it. The rainy, stormy weather kind of eliminates any need to "style" it.

    How tidy do you keep your place of residence in general? Are there any specific areas that you keep cleaner than others? Why do you think that might be? Do you distinguish between messy(papers strewn about, etc.) and dirty(dirty socks, exposed food on the coffee table, etc.)?
    Overall, my place is tidy but not everything is always where it should be, tons of books always strewn around and some paperwork here and there. I keep the kitchen the cleanest because I hate dishes piled up and food all over. I have noticed that my sense of peace is impacted by how messy my place is so I always try to keep it tidy, not spotless, but tidy. It is something fairly easy to do that greatly improves my mood.

    When you do clean, is it because YOU desire it to be clean, or because you feel guilty? Is it just the right thing to do(duty), or is it a matter of practicality?
    I think it is really a matter of practicality, though when I clean certain parts and disinfect then I will be pretty thorough.
