Scientist say you can accurately judge a person by looking at their shoes. Lead researcher at the University of Kansas, Omri Gillath, found that by examining a person’s shoe style, cost, color and condition, it was possible to accurately judge a stranger’s age, gender, income and other important personality traits. In the researchers’ experiment, 63 observers were asked to look at several pairs of shoes and guess certain things about its owner..Researchers also asked volunteers to fill out a personality survey and describe their most frequently worn shoes. The results of their experiment were quite surprising—most observers had correctly guessed the powners’ age, gender, income and emotional stability. The researchers concluded that, generally, people do wear shoes that portray their personality—whether they attempt to or not.
