Some people say that it is possible to tell a lot about a person’s culture and character from their choice of clothes. do you agree or disagree?
It is certainly a very interesting question. does a person tell us so much from what he wears about their culture and personality or not? I tend to agree that clothes can tell us some basic things, but that they do not tell us much more than those basic things.
First of all, I will consider how a person’s choice of clothes reveals his culture. this is true in some ways, for example, in many countries people have a distinctive national style of wear and some particular clothes and fabrics are typical of certain areas. therefore, clothes can sometimes reveal the ethnic origins and culture of a person, but as so many people nowadays dress in business suits or jeans and t-shirts worldwide this is becoming less and less true.
As the character is concerned, we can tell in some places if the wearer of clothes is a follower of fashion. another aspect of the dress is whether the clothes look clean and ironed or grubby and very casual. this might tell us how much concerned they are about to be smart. however, the way someone dresses can also be misleading at times. there are some people which wear clothes that seems very unusual and strange but often they are just following fashion and are not unusual or strange people in their personalities at all.
In conclusion, I would say that we can find out something about a person from their style of dress but only the surface things, and not the deeper character.
News stories on TV and in newspapers are very often accompanied by pictures. some people say that these pictures are more effective than words. what is your opinion about this?
Employers sometimes ask people applying for jobs for personal information, such as their hobbies and interests, and whether they are married or single. some people say that this information may be relevant and useful. others disagree. discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
