Obama Sportin' A Cowboy Hat

“Leave everyone wondering which is the more interesting piece of work…you or your hat.”

I really  enjoy quotes about hats and character, because they make you think about how hats can give you this COURAGE.

Sometimes as small as it is – wearing a hat can help you to fathom doing something you never imagined you would do! It’s all about the image and  composure.  Since many in authoritative positions wear hats, they probably can attest to the intrigue, the clout and the  influence they bring to  places where they  are leaders. According to this article ; three out of five of these traits involve  personalities that are  out in the open and  core personality and character traits.

Even President Obama, our president is an introvert – and wearing this hat helps him to TRULY dominate in a way that’s unimaginable in a crowd! If he were  just a regular old guy, without a hat – he would be invisible, don’t you think??

 I believe Extraversion, Agreeableness and Openness all involve a certain level of  taking risks. If you  choose to wear a hat, are you a RISK-TAKER?? Perhaps…

Perhaps you enjoy being a little excitable, talkative  willing to be involved in sports and extracurricular activities  (where they wear hats, and even the  ‘interesting’ agreeable persons with pro-social behaviors tend to  have “hat acclaim” – they all seem to have a way of   standing out a little more!  Who knows… even the conscientious people who are careful with details and  are careful and  considerate like to   be noticed as well.. every now and then! I wold be sort of biased to say all extroverts wear hats… but  I’man introvert, and I love them too… so there’s quite   a mixture of personality types that come into the hat genre, but i bet the distinction we add to the  hat world comes when we are in one of these mood below! 

    • ExtraversionThis trait includes characteristics such as excitability, sociability, talkativeness, assertiveness and high amounts of emotional expressiveness.
    • Agreeableness: This personality dimension includes attributes such as trust, altruism, kindness, affection, and other pro-social behaviors.
    • Conscientiousness: Common features of this dimension include high levels of thoughtfulness, with good impulse control and goal-directed behaviors. Those high in conscientiousness tend to be organized and mindful of details.
    • Neuroticism: Individuals high in this trait tend to experience emotional instability, anxiety, moodiness, irritability, and sadness.
    • Openness: This trait features characteristics such as imagination and insight, and those high in this trait also tend to have a broad range of interests.

S0… which one are you? Do you have one of the 5 CORE personality traits?

And if so, how do you like to fancy your “hat acclaim” and wear your hats to suit your personality style??
