Just to let you know this whole tread started because I found it in my search box too many times not to delve into the subject. It's interesting to wonder about what people wear that have have the brain wave frequencies of a hundred times or more than the average person and how they go about picking their outfits? Most people including myself (maybe me being just a little more advanced in selection) go to our closet and typically select our wardrobes based on our "mood" or some type of personal subconscious insecurity to help cover or take away the attention of. For instance, if you wake up with a red pimple on your nose then you probably won't be picking that red shirt to wear for the day, would you? The red would accentuate the red dot on your face and could give you a full day of total insecurity which could diminish your performance at work or school and could give you low energy for the day in general. Let's say that your a woman and you feel bloated. I would bet that you would go to the closet and select a "black" and "blousy" outfit to mask your feeling of bloatedness as well as deceiving everyone else while covering that overgrown muffin top. Another quirky weird scenario. You have this cool multi check shirt that you really want to wear. But the palette of color doesn't really go with black shoes and the pants that you want to wear with that goes with your brown shoes has a stain and you need to either get the stain out or not wear the shirt today. So you begin scrubbing with a wet towel and begin to get stressed because your late for work. Big delima, right?!
There are many more stories to fill the subject of "how I selected my outfit today" but maybe your giving too much thought to it. Especially if your an aspiring genius! You see, to be a genius you must somehow have the brain wattage to complete tasks that many people would consider...... inhuman. Wattage that goes way beyond figuring out how to put my newborn's new crib together and certainly way beyond selecting your outfit for the day. Most geniuses in this post totally skip the searching, the choosing, the pressing, the steaming and asking the spouse if this looks ok because they are just going to keep things simple. That's right! Simple! How simple? How about wearing the same damn outfit for the rest of his or her unnatural human genius life! Believe it or not, some of the most creative people in this world's entire history of existence choose or have chosen to just wear the same outfits day in and day out and very possibly could have contributed to there success in life.
"If he loved a shirt, he'd order 10 or 100 of them. In the Palo Alto house, there are probably enough black cotton turtlenecks for everyone in this church."
It has been reported that the famous physicist bought several versions of the same grey suit because he didn’t want to waste brainpower on choosing an outfit each morning.
“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits,” [Obama] said. “I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.” He mentioned research that shows the simple act of making decisions degrades one’s ability to make further decisions." - OBAMA
Wearing the same outfit also helps build a stronger brand which presents itself that branding and a strong brand in general needs consistency. Wearing the same thing clothing daily also gives people a sense of conformity and comfort that exudes confidence. For instance, Mark Zuckerberg wears a tee shirt and jeans almost daily. His Facebook work atmosphere is rarely seen with anyone wearing a suit unless in the conference room with outsiders. Most of his employees are young and don't want to wear suits to work. However, his employees are not only young but they are in an industry that supports tech savvy employees that sit in front of computers all day and having to wear a suit is defiantly out of their comfort zone when they are used to being in tee shirts or hoodies.
Check out some of these designers who have only one look ( notice the simple black or white outfits ) :
The one outfit a lifetime does have it's benefits but it's not imagination. One is that you save time from from having to select an outfit daily and even better, you also save all the time that is needed to shop for those outfits! That's more time to read up on your history of mathematics! As you can see above even highly creatives such as modern day designers have there own one outfit preference. With these designers, I can see the branding strategy for the consistency of looking the same in pictures but iss there actually some correlation between the simplicity of just one daily outfit and creative or brain performance?
