Character Assessment through Purse Items

purse item assessmentThe items in your purse can tell a great deal about your character. Most women tend to see their purse items as nothing more than things that found their way into their purse for one reason or another. Some women choose their purse items very deliberately while others choose them completely incidentally. Regardless, the accumulation of items in your purse reveal a great deal about your personal character.

For example, if it is mostly beauty and hygiene items you keep in your purse, you likely care a great deal about your image and your appearance. You like to freshen up before making an appearance anywhere, and you always like to look your best. You place a lot of importance on the first impression you make on people and you always want to look and smell just right for the occasion.

If you tend to carry around a lot of health items, such as band-aids, aspirin, indigestion remedies, first aid wipes and a thermometer, you are responsible, practical, efficient and you put health and safety first at all times. You likely have some sort of experience in the medical world as a professional. You are often the one that people want around in a precarious situation for your preparedness.

If your pure tends to be full of items such as pens, paper, cameras and electronic devices, you are probably more of a thinker and an observer of people. This type of woman may include artists, journalists, writers, or people in positions of power who have a lot of creative authority in their vocation. They are idea people who are constantly assessing the world around them in order to achieve a higher understanding of it, which they use for their own professional or personal purposes.

And lastly, if your purse is just a big mess, consisting of old receipts, candy bar wrappers, make up, phones, sunglasses, pills, pens, cameras, pictures, “to do” lists and a host of other random items, you are likely scatterbrained and unconventional in how you do things. Your system works well for you and you know that its functional, even if other people can’t see it. You often have the potential to be a creative genius, if you can organize your thoughts enough to assemble them into something cohesive.

How Purse Dependent Are You?

purse dependenceWhat role does your purse play in your life? Are you anxious when your purse is not directly on your person? Could you care less about your purse so long as you know it has not been stolen? Every women has a different relationship with their purse. Some are very invested while others are largely disinterested. Some women carry large purses and others tiny purses. The type of purse a woman carries can say a lot about her.

Women who are very dependent on their purses typically carry large purses containing many items. These are the type of women who are scarcely ever seen without their purses in hand. This indicates a high maintenance type of woman. They tend to fuss over the details of situations and get flustered when unforeseen circumstances arrived. This is why they choose to be overly prepared for unforeseen life situations by packing their purses full of things they are actually quite unlikely to need.

A woman with an average sized purse containing an average amount of things is an example of a reasonably well balanced woman. She is not overly prepared or underly prepared. She has a good sense for what is likely to happen. When situations arise that make her wish she had brought something else along in her purse, they are few and far between. This type of woman is prepared without being fussy and is prepared to improvise in the unlikely event that she will not have something with her that she needs.

And lastly, women with a small purse containing only a few items are low maintenance but also tend to live life taking chances, which can be a bad thing. Women who live haphazardly and show up to most events unprepared can be fun, but can also be a mess. They are carefree and free-spirited, but they are also hard to depend on and other people often have to handle their responsibilities.

All of these women are valuable in different situations. The balanced woman is the most universally functional, but when no one else thought to bring that obscure item that turns out to be necessary, the overly prepared woman will have the last laugh, as will the under prepared woman in the situations where a sizable purse proves to be a hindrance.
