You Can Judge 90 Percent of People’s Personalities by Their Shoes

June 13, 2012

Researchers at the University of Kansas say that people can accurately judge 90 percent of a stranger’s personality simply by looking at the person’s shoes.

“Shoes convey a thin but useful slice of information about their wearers,” the authors wrote in the new study published in the Journal of Research in Personality. “Shoes serve a practical purpose, and also serve as nonverbal cues with symbolic messages. People tend to pay attention to the shoes they and others wear.”

Medical Daily notes that the number of detailed personality traits detected in the study include a person’s general age, their gender, income, political affiliation, and other personality traits, including someone’s emotional stability.

Lead researcher Omri Gillath said the judgments were based on the style, cost, color and condition of someone’s shoes. In the study, 63 University of Kansas students looked at pictures showing 208 different pairs of shoes worn by the study’s participants. Volunteers in the study were photographed in their most commonly worn shoes, and then filled out a personality questionnaire.

So, what do your shoes say about peoples personality?

Eye View Update, Marauding Angry Clown Sighting

November 4, 2010

Emmy-winning WPIX reporter Arthur Chi’en suffered extensive facial fractures after being dragged off a Greenwich Village Halloween Parade float by a marauding clown, authorities said.

“He was trying to scale the float and he grabbed my arm,” said the veteran newsman, whose face was shattered in six places when he was pulled off the float as it neared W. 14th St. just after 9 p.m.

“I tried to wave him off, but the railing gave way,” Chi’en told the Daily News on Wednesday night. “We both fell, but I landed face first in the street.”

Chi’en is expected to have reconstructive surgery on Thursday.

San Francisco Bans Happy Meals, The Clown Is Not Going To Like This

November 3, 2010

San Francisco has banned the Happy Meal, on the day of the return of the McRib no less. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed an ordinance requiring meals that included toys with their purchase to meet specific nutritional guidelines. The vote, achieved with a Gavin Newsom veto-proof majority of 8-3, effectively bans the Happy Meal. They hope will force fast-food chains such as McDonald’s to make their children’s meals healthier or stop selling them with toys. Supervisors say the law would make San Francisco the first major city to take this action to combat childhood obesity.McDonald’s has said the law threatens business and restricts parents’ ability to make choices for their children. The clown is not happy..
