Read Surveys (By Question)

28. Would you say you “know what you like” in the area of fashion and clothing? If so, do you also know what you like in other areas of life, that is, are you generally good at discernment? Can you say where your discernment comes from, if you have it? Or if you don’t have it, why or why not?

Yes i know very well when it comes to clothes and fashion and i also feel i do in my life in general as i prefer to have Control and not much surprices. Im not sure why im good at it but im happy i do it.

Yes, I am normally confident about what I like however this does not mean I always make good purchases. I believe strongly in trial and error with clothes. So I may like the idea of something on the rack but I have to try and wear it for a day to see if it feels right for my personality. I think this is the same as my approach to life.. this is maybe why I go on a lot of dates but I am single.

Yes I like vintage clothing. especially print shirts.
Yes I know what I like in other areas of life.
I think my sense of discernment comes from realizing that the world needs individuality and I can't survive this world by lying to myself.
I need to know what I want.

Yes. I'm extremely particular about what I like and always have been.

I know what I like. Most definitely. I suppose I just have very strong opinions, coupled with the fact that I give zero shits about what other people think. It’s clear in my mind. Somehow it doesn’t even feel like discernment.

It comes from a definitive taste. Elimination is everything.

Yes, I know what I like in general. I'm a very opinionated person. I think this comes from the fact that my parents have never really put reigns on my self-expression or forced opinions on me.

no

Yes I know. Yes I have experience of changing my clothes style to higher quality and more fashionable.

I could write an essay in response to this question. To be succinct, OF COURSE I KNOW WHAT I LIKE & more importantly, what I DISLIKE. I know myself, my body, my mind, my strengths, my weaknesses, my character flaws & what's in my being VERY WELL. ME, MYSELF & I are best friends. I'm extremely discerning/choosy which comes from being astutely aware of my surroundings at all times. I'm a people-watcher. I prefer to observer rather than to participate. These characteristics likely arose from my trying many things in life, moving around the country, and knowing that knowledge is power.

Yes I know what I look and am changing my look to the way I feel. My mother taught me well.

I do know what I like because I know what looks good on me and what doesn't. The things that don't look good on me; I don't tend to like.

for the most part, yes, if i can trust myself and ignore external factors.

I am less and less certain about what should be as I grow older. At 58, I honestly feel like I really know everything and nothing, more the latter than the former. At 38, I knew a lot. At 18 - damn, I had it all figured out.

I'm developing or even rather good at this. I think it comes from experience.

Yes, I generally know what I like. I think it comes from living in different places and meeting with a lot of interesting, well informed people. So if you are sponge, you can pick up bits from everyone and everything.

Like in a small village in Vietnam, I loved how they were using soup ladles for soap dishes. And I incorporated that in my Shanghai apartment.

i would not say i know what i like - i just know what i like when i see it - its quite immediate - the same is true of pretty much everything in my life

My decisiveness comes from being very judgy.

I do know what I like very well. I am still seeing what it really means to advocate for myself in other realms of my life, though. I am just out of college so it's a new skill to learn. I like trying new things so much, I am open to going and bailing if it's lame.
