    Default ILE and dressing the same way every day...

    Here's my list of ILE who dressed the same way every day; I've obtained this information from autobiographies and bios...

    Steve Jobs
    Albert Einstein
    Sigmund Freud
    Monk

    Anyone else?

    Why is this? Is it because they don't want to have to worry about this because it's just a covering?

    I dress the same way every day! Weird.

    It might just have something to do with little care to how you appear to others. No coincidence it might have a higher rate of occurrence in Se problem types, but I could see any NT doing the same.

    I dress the same every day, have for 15 years. But my style has evolved with the times.

    Most days now for the last I don't know how many years I have worn the same kind of long black skirt, boots in winter, sandals in summer & cardigans of various shades. Sometimes I even buy 2 of the same skirt etc when I find one that I like to save me from having to go out shopping looking for another later. Throwing a different coloured and styled scarf around my neck is probably what I do to add some variety.
    I think it's more about exact same identical articles of clothing or almost identical.

    My closet is basically the same shirt/pants repeated 10-20 times.

    I am about to head out for the afternoon so am just about to choose a cardigan to wear...um which one shall I choose the black, light grey, dark grey, purple or dark blue of the exact same style cardigan, lol!

    I also wear a little black watch which often it seems I break or lose so when I ever need a new one, guess what - yes it is replaced with as close a replica as I can find and thankfully I think this present watch is the third identical of it's kind to be placed upon my wrist.
    I own black shirts(all the same unless it's discontinued), khaki/olive/grey/black pants, black shoes, black belts. I don't own anything else that I wear.

    I've basically never worn anything else except the occasional suit on formal occasions in the last 15 years. People I work with actually keep up with what I wear, since the last time I worn a brown shirt, they marked it on the calendar. The day Hkkmr didn't wear black.

    Not sure if it's type related, since I don't think of Steve Jobs as ILE.

    i'm sort of internally conflicted on this topic. i like the idea of experimenting with clothing a lot in an abstract sense, but i hate the social part of it where people notice you're wearing something "new" and you have to hear out their opinion on it and act like you care and/or take opinions in account in future dressing decisions. so in the end i mostly just end up going "bah, humbug, i'm wearing something normal, are you happy" and forget about the whole thing.

    See, now you've just completely contradicted your posts about me being SEI because of this thread. If we're saying that only ILE's dress the same way every single day, then I'm ILE.

    But seriously, I do pretty much dress the same way on a daily basis. At work I will wear black slacks, a top, and my coat. Outside of work, I wear jeans and a top. Being "fashionable" isn't really necessary for me. As long as I don't walk out of the house looking like a complete slob, I'm content. I wear what I'm comfortable in, and that's jeans/pants; though, I will occasionally venture out and put on a dress if I'm feeling extra "girly." It gets noticed though, since I very rarely do it. Some days I'm fine with the, "OMG! You look so cute in that dress, why don't you dress that way more often" talk, but other days my way of thinking is just, 'please stfu and let me enjoy my new dress in peace.'

    I wear the same threads everyday until they are destroyed because I cannot afford to care about stupid things. I am interested in Science, History, Art or female volleyball players, but I don't give a fuck about fashion.

    We're talking about the same style for decades.

    I'd say that's something more common among LSE. Unless you're talking about styles that never really go out of style like jeans and t-shirts in which case it's not type related.

    I would say that, LSE are more inclined to hold on to old styles rather than have a similar style all the time; the difference being is that an LSE will have varies shades and styles of clothing and will want to wear them for a long time, whereas an ILE will wear maybe the same color clothes all the time with very little concern for variation and very little interest in other colors/objects of visual stimulation when it comes to clothing and outfits. I have seen SEE women be attracted to black outfits but of many styles and varieties, this is still Se base; an Ne base is more like the picture of Steve Jobs in the OP.

    What rubbish you speak.

    From what I understand SEE women are more attracted to red and vibrant clothing so what you are stating above is unfounded. I am sure that Ekaterina Filatova in her book Understanding the People Around you, writes about them liking bright coloured clothing with red being a favourite.

    Also any and probably every type can like dark clothing including the EII.
    http://www.wikisocion.org/en/index.p...ale_and_female
    But with age generally they begin to select in essence anything slightly dark and imperceptible.

    base is also not a definite for Steve Jobs type.

    If you are going to start the subtle and not so subtle attacks on me again I am just going to put you on ignore straight away this time.
    I cannot be bothered with your jealousy that I may be an EII and as always you try to force SEE upon me when you get worried about this and then the nastiness gets worse.
    You take no note that nothing about the SEE type fits me, especially the base.

    So your call...shall I just hit that ignore button now or do you still wish to interact?

    True Fi-PoLR Answer:

    I walk around naked, like Robyn, because I can't bother putting on clothes. I'm so freakin' happy that she wears the same thing everyday cos I do too. We also live in a glass house.
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."
