What is Your Closet Personality Type? (Video)

Closet Personality Type Last week I posted a new video on my YouTube Channel about the five Closet Personality Types I’ve developed over the years of working with clients on their styles, wardrobe management, closets and image.  If you missed the video you can view it here.

I’ve written about the different Closet Personality Types on this blog before.  I’ve also written about clients who have dealt with one or more of these personality types.  For example, this is a perfect example of when the Sentimentalist Closet Personality Type gets way out of control.   I have also written about a particular client who has always suffered with being a bit of an Identifier. Her personality type isn’t as clearly defined, but it’s still a great story about how she learned to open up and become more vulnerable to life and, as a result, her it became more fulfilling.  In addition to these two posts there is a lot of posts on this blog that just speak to the psychological side of fashion that you can explore here.

Regardless of how deep you want to dig into this topic, take a few minutes to watch the video and see if you can identify with any of the  closet personality types.  Most people are more than one, like me, who is an Identifier–Devaluist.

 

  • What about the Perfectionist? Because that’s me. As in, my main wardrobe is a meticulously planned ensemble of 30 items hung only on wooden hangers. On a tree branch suspended from the ceiling. And the rest of my clothes are folded KonMari-style (in neat little rectangles, sitting vertically). Am I the only one you’ve met like this? Surely there are others like me who spend hours online browsing in the search to find the perfect cardigan (yet to find it) or who have watched a thousand programmes and read countless books on the subject of style in an effort to figure out what works best for me. I know I need to loosen up — it’s only clothes! — but it’s a bit of a compulsion. I think it’s just a newfound enthusiasm, but sometimes I wonder if I should be concerned.

    • I am going to run through this but I think you might be on to something. I do have clients who fall into this category. I just need to look at what you are describing more closely before adding it to the mix! Thanks!
