1. Better first impressions
First impressions are lasting impressions. People initially assess you based on the way you look because that’s the only data point available. Prejudices and mental associations often bubble up in the conscious and unconscious mind of humans. In fact, it takes conscious EFFORT to suppress our automatic assessments and judgements based on someone’s image. Only a small percentage of people are conscious enough to actively manage this in our world today.
Therefore, having a better sense of style will help you to make better impressions. At the very least, give you control over how you want to be perceived in the world. At best, being able to express your inner soul in a way that also achieves your goals in the material world.
2. Increasing confidence
There’s something about wearing a well designed outfit that improves confidence. Over time, as you become comfortable with your new attire, you start behaving in this new identity. In acting, wardrobe changes can be one of the strongest catalysts in an actor’s transformation into the character. As you feel more confident this will have a reinforcing effect. People will treat you better, at a different standard. This can lead to a positive feedback loop that will help your confidence in the long run. Inner work on self esteem, worth and confidence can accelerate or coincide with the outer expressions of the client.
Instead of talk therapy, changing a person’s image and having them go out and experience the transformation is one of the fastest ways to shift a person’s identity and behavior patterns into alignment with their goals.
3. Improve self-image
How we look has a strong impact on our self-image. Looking badly can influence how we feel about ourselves. The opposite is also true. By learning how to look your best, you can improve your projected image of yourself and get into the right mood for meeting women. Having the discipline to be clean cut, shaven and organized in our attire… the very practice can improve feelings of self worth and discipline. These feelings will stack over time as the new behavior pattern becomes the norm.
4. Easier approaches with women/men
Most people in dating/social situations will make a snap judgment about you within the first few seconds of meeting you, so having a great sense of style will make approaches easier for you and give you more favorable first impressions. It is part of the mating game. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
5. Approaches by other people
By creating an attractive style and incorporating some of the style attraction switches…you will also have women (and men) coming up to speak to you, and you’ll be able to use your interesting clothing items as conversation pieces that help you build new relationships with new people.
6. You can create attraction faster on dates and get less resistance
Your calls get returned more quickly, and you can get physical much faster. She’s chasing you instead of the other way around, or you’re both pushing and pulling (ideal seduction situation).
Cleanliness, attention to detail, courtesy, and high class: these are all things women and other people associate with a man who is dominantly stylish.
Certain girls are automatically attracted to men that look a certain way. In every sample of a population, there are the rare 1-5% of women who are attracted to the idea or stereotype of a guy. Human beings can fall in love with the “idea” of a person. Women enjoy sex just as much as men (if not more). Like the hot cheerleader in high school every guy wanted, you can become that guy all the girls are attracted to by leveraging your style stereotypes correctly.
7. Social and Professional Benefits
“Dress for the job you want”. When you look better, people treat you better. The way that someone treats a guy in an expensive looking suit is much different than how they treat someone wearing a T-shirt and baggy jeans. Studies have shown that height and work attire are correlated to salary and earnings over time. By learning the rules of style, you will be able to take advantage of these differences and reap the benefits in all areas of your life, which includes your professional life. Of course, adapt to your corporate culture. Don’t suit it up everyday if you’re in a tech company that has a casualwear culture.
Hopefully these 7 benefits have gotten you a little excited to learn more about style!
