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?
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.
I do know what I like in terms of clothing. The same goes with other areas of my life such as music, food, wine, interior design, art, books and so on. I think I am good at discernment, and in the last few years I've become a lot better at picking out things that I like several years down the track. I think that my discernment comes from my parents - they've always had an incredibly good eye for picking out things that they like in the present and in the future.
Yes! I am very particular.
Yes I do know what I like in fashion and clothing. This discernment comes from years of trial and error.
I just like to be happy and I'll do my best to continue to have a full and happy existence.
Yes I know what I like, but I'm also very indecisive
Yes. I have had moments where I JUST CAN'T CHOOSE what I want to order, or wear, or whatever, but for the most part, I have a clear vision, and I act on that.
Yes, I have discernment. Since I shop mostly used, the things I buy stand the test of time, and continue on forever with me. I like good quality and am willing to pay more for something that will last.
I definitely know what I like, too. I don't have a lot of money so I have to be selective. Always having a limited budget has made me more selective.
I know what I like when it comes to clothing. That discernment comes from simply dressing myself for the 20 years. My taste in furniture and architecture comes from my parents. My art is art is influenced by my boyfriend.
Maybe it's just in my character? I have been like this since I can recall.
Yes. If anything, I have too much discernment.
It comes from having particular ideas about quality and ethics. I want things that last and that are low-impact.
I know what is safe for me. I know my comfort zone.
Very much so. I was alone for most of my childhood and adolescence, and I guess that gave me a very clear feel of what I want. I don't dither, I don't fret, I don't believe in wasting time feeling uncertain in millions of different ways. Also, I
am prepared to live with the consequences of my choices.
I'm very particular and picky when I choose clothes, and in other areas of my life.
It has to be cruelty-free, ethical, practical, and comfortable.
Absolutely. I know what I like in all areas of life. I think my discernment comes from having known myself for twenty-seven years—from living and experiencing. I intuit and I’m usually right. I have confidence in myself and am largely unconcerned with what others think. I’m open-minded, largely non-judgmental, but have strong preferences and a strong sense of self. I dislike indecisiveness. I think I was raised to be discerning.
