Did You Know? What do your socks say about you?

While the act of choosing and wearing socks might seem easy and unimportant, your socks actually say things about your character.

Crazy socks


A  research shows that our clothing choices often dictate the ways others view and treat us, also, what we wear also impacts the way we feel about ourselves, or our self-perception.

A study conducted at Northwestern University by social psychologist Dr. Adam Galinsky, highlighted by the New York Times, revealed that our clothing choices affect our cognitive processes.

This is related to a scientific field known as embodied cognition, which argues we think with both our brains and bodies.

Speaking with the Times, Galinsky stated, "clothes invade the body and brain, putting the wearer into a different psychological state."

This means that wearing a crazy pair of socks might help us feel braver and more unpredictable, thereby leading us to uncharted waters and, in turn, greater success in life.

It has also been said that a palpable connection exists between crazy socks and successful people, so, for those who wear crazy looking socks with lots of colours, designs and so on, keep doing that, it just might be your secret weapon.
