    Default My belt theory (or: how to tell J from P)

    I have a very simple theory on how you can tell rationals from irrationals.

    If they wear a belt as a matter of course, they are rational. If they prefer not to wear a belt unless absolutely necessary, then irrational.

    that is all. Oh, and this is more accurate with men since women have more variations with fashion.

    haha scarves for belts... I tried that once but I felt like it added bulk around my waist. Plus I'm really just a no-belt kinda person. Unless I need one to hold my pants up (which I occasionally do).

    What if their pants are bespoke, and therefore don't need a belt?

    I don't get it, what's wrong with a belt? Therefore, the theory doesn't work for me. I actually like belts and I'm wearing them almost every time. I hate it if my pants are slipping down, even if it's only a little bit.

    Well, sometimes I act like one, but I guess I'm still an ILI. Despite the doctrine of the belt.

    Pants are irrelevant. You can wear a belt without pants.

    I know an LII who doesn't like underwear and has gone commando for majority of his life. Could this be type related?

    Maybe. I don't go commando, but I would have no problem living in a nudist country. It would seem so peaceful and relaxed. I hate underwear but boxers are tolerable.

    [I]"I think that there's a tendency, yes. I also think that Irrationals tend to prefer tighter pants maybe that's one of the causes?"



    Hah I always used to say this...why would I want some uncomfortable belt if my pants fit fine? And belts were always uncomfortable
