    Default IEEs' clothing: Always something out of place?

    In type descriptions, it is often mentioned that IEEs tend to dress in a unique way and/or with something always out of place. Does this hold true for the IEEs here or for IEEs you know irl?

    Their overall style tends to lack some element of coherency. I don't know how to put my finger on it, but there's usually something in a (female) IEE/EIE's style that tells me they're 1D Si. There's an impression that although the clothing exists on their bodies, they aren't wearing the clothing themselves.
    On the other hand, some SEEs may have a similar unique, out-there style, but they manage to convince me that they're wearing the outfit themselves (doesn't just exist on them)..

    Not really but I’m not great at spotting these things myself

    This is interesting. Thanks!
    @asd -- Thanks for the reply.

    IDK. I am IEE but don't (think I) tend to dress in a whimsical way. Not at all, actually. I do like to wear scarves, but they are carefully chosen to complement whatever I am wearing and bring color to it since I tend to wear neutrals (primarily black, white, and especially navy).

    Anyway... I would be interested to read others' takes on this, if others are up for sharing.

    good style is also something that develops with age, that being said my post was probably negatively biased in that sense. also i think there are some Ne-bases who are more in touch with their Si that have it reflected in their clothing choices.

    OP, as delta NF maybe my own exp. regarding “style” might be useful? I don’t know if you really need to be all that good at Si to intuitively get something looks too “much” too garish because you can anticipate (N) people’s reactions (F) and in the same vein you can also be “attuned to the trend” - need not be in-depth knowledge fashion, but just dressing for that time period, that decade, that century, etc.

    so all of that combined if NFs wanted to get super creative with their clothing they could do the whimsical thing or they could just put on t-shirt and jeans, or a pretty dress (which is more likely what I do lol). Otherwise, sure despite the latter there can be this sense of detachment from sensory stuff in all NFs like chocolatte said.
