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 definitely know what I like in the area of fashion and am also very discerning when it comes to other areas of culture (literature, cinema, tv, food, etc). I think this comes from the way I was raised. My family has always communicated more by sharing books and movies with one another than by actually talking about our lives. I'm less discerning when it comes to things that apply more practically to life. I'm not as discerning when it comes to men, friendships, jobs, deciding what I want to do with my life, etc. I think this is because I'm twenty-four and I don't I know what I want in the big scheme of things.

Well, I certainly know what I like and I don't like, but I have very open taste. But if I say I don't like it, I really don't like it. It's bad. It's just instict; do I like the message this piece gives? Yes or no, it's pretty instantaneous.

Yes, I know what I like. It comes from listening to myself with concentration and withought judging my thoughts. That´s the way I found to feel connected with myself, and therefore feel good about who I am, instead of trying to be somebody that I´m not.

I would say that I know what I like in the area of fashion. I believe that generally I know what I want in most of the areas of my life. My discernment comes from a lot of thinking and analyzing.

Yes, and yes. My discernment comes partly with impatience with people who strain to feel superior in some way or other, whether with fashion, pretentious connoisseurism, general snobbery, outspending

I think that at this point I have an image in my head of how I want to dress. This image is open to changing, and has evolved as I have gotten older. But I usually know what I want and how to get it. I think this stems from being a decisive person and often making decisions instinctively and then sticking to them.

I know what I like, but I'm still discovering for more. Same with other ares of my life, especially for my career.

I don't think I'm as good at life and discerning things as I am at dressing myself. I think this is about self-doubt.

Yes, because I truly love nice things.

I generally know what I like in fashion, but it isn't a well-established habit. It's a simple like or dislike every time I try something on at the store. In other areas of life I am, I'll decide right now, the same. Boys are attractive for all kinds of reasons. I don't generalize it, I just acknowledge it. It comes from being a person. Everyone has always had a favorite color or food.

I have it based on my life experience, paying a lot of attention, especially to my mistakes but also to my successes.

Yes - I know exactly what I like and dislike in most areas of life and could probably do with being a bit more open-minded and adventurous.

Yes, I think so, comes from my dad

not at all.. I like many cloths I cannot buy... I also like many things in other areas I cannot have... so I try to wear and live with the resources I have and try to be happy with it.
I guess I learned that from my parents.

I do know what I like in areas of fashion and clothing and other. Of course, what I like has evolved over the years, and I try to allow it to continue to evolve. But at any point in time, I have been able to say, Yes, I like that, or No, that's not me. I think that comes from my intuitive nature. Like I've mentioned, I've always been introverted, and that has allowed a lot of introspection over the years and also quiet observation of others. I think that the combination of knowing myself and others has allowed me to create an image of myself to project and also to know how to best frame that image (like with clothes or posture).

Yes and yes. Im good a both.

No, i have difficulty knowing what I like. I don't trust what I like. I am sensitive to others critiques. I might not have it because I think a lot, or it might be because i moved a lot as a kid, and changed families a lot. Nothing was stable and I was always trying to fit in.

I would tend to agree I have a good degree of discernment. My Mother certainly had / has a sense of discernment and tended / tends to dress for herself and what looked / looks good and tasteful. I do know what I like in other areas of my life. However, I try not to decide what is right or wrong for others these days and do try to question any type of judgement at all

Well, I do have certain preferences but I am open to suggestions. I feel that I am farely good at discernment and I believe that it comes from my certainty about various things

No. I don't notice objects very much. I think thoughts. Bodies are among the objects I don't notice.

I definitely know what I like with most areas of life. This is personal discernment. I think I have a good eye and ear--good taste--but others would beg to differ I'm sure. Two way street. I don't understand the fashion sense of some people as much as they are perplexed by mine.

Oh, I have discernment in spades. My husband would say excessively. I know what I like in every sphere.
