In my former life as a career-centered woman, I took several different types of personality profiling. It has been determined repeatedly that I am a Type A, Red, Driver, Tiger, or whatever you choose to call it. My secondary is Creative or Blue. In the scheme of things, the other two don’t even make it on my personality profile.
Carol Tuttle has created a profiling system for women to discover their beauty in her book Dressing Your Truth: Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile. I have read the book and while I found it interesting, I don’t necessarily believe everything written.
Rather than take the labels of personality profiling, Tuttle creates a profile based on our movement, doodles, gifts and talents, personality traits, physical features, body language and behavioral tendencies.
From here, Tuttle says you’ll fall into one of four categories:
Type 1: The Bright, Animated Woman
Type 2: The Subtle Soft Woman
Type 3: The Rich, Dynamic Woman
Type 4: The Bold, Striking Woman
Tuttle writes: “You may see some of yourself in all four of the Types, yet you will find that you lead with one of the four and that you are a dominant expression of one of the four.”
I’m a Type 4: The Bold, Striking Woman. I went based on my features rather than my personality.
I found Dressing Your Truth: Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile to be an interesting read. I love learning about people. I recognize that we tend to adapt to those around us. This book gives some great detail on the different types of people with additional ways to recognize them aside from those courses I have taken–like doodling, movement, and energy.
Is it possible to determine our pattern preference, color preference, accessories, and hair color based on doodling, facial features, movement and the other criteria in Dressing Your Truth?
If you know me, you know I have a constant look. Angry. It’s not that I chose this. I blame a genetic flaw on the German who married into my lineage. A deep crease runs up from the bridge of my nose, making my left eyebrow look like a scowl. I’ve been judged by this imperfection my entire life. I’m not sure I believe my facial features are a good representation.
As I read, I found myself getting more immersed in this theory. I wanted to know more about myself. I wanted to read on and discover what color my clothes should be, the true haircut that will wow everyone. I was really wrapped up in the reading.
Then the book ended.
Just like that.
Its primary purpose of determining by Type. I can pay $279.00 for an online course if I want to learn the rest.
I checked out the online shop to see if I couldn’t learn more. Here there is make-up, accessories, and skincare, but no clothing.
My take on this book is that it’s a good read. I enjoyed learning about myself and projecting my Type classifications onto my friends and family. Dressing Your Truth can be purchased on Amazon for $19.95. If you are, however, looking for the full revelation of where to go once you have your Type determined, this book will leave you hanging.
