An U.S. experiment shows that one really can judge a person by their shoes, the Daily Mail reported.
Psychologists from the University of Kansas found that the style, value, color and condition of the footwear can paint a picture of the owner’s emotional, political and other important personality traits.
The team reported that practical and functional shoewear usually belongs to agreeable people, ankle boots are worn by aggressive personalities and calm personalities wear uncomfortable looking shoes. Liberal thinkers, who many think of as sandal wearing hippies, really do wear scruffier and less expensive shoes, said the research.
