Listen to a woman shopper's comments when she Is intent on finding just the right hat or dress and you'll hear such remarks ast "No, blue Isn't one of my best colors." "I can't wear fussy clothes. Haven't you anything that looks a little more casual?" "Hint's a nice shade —but the lines aren't right for me" —and so on. It's loo bad women aren't Just as realistic about their personalities as they are about Iheir looks. If they were they would be quick to disiarn many of the attitudes, manerlsms, habits, and pretenses that are unbecoming and "don't do a thing' for them. If Mrs. Smith refuses to wear blue because It isn't one of her mc.sf becoming colors, why shouldn't shr also realize that -snobbery isn't becoming either? Or that her constant, self-centered chatter doesn't do a thing for her, or that slip doesn't appear to the best advantage when she is being catty or putting someone In their place? Know Your Own Personality Traits The difficulty is that women have their mirrors to tell them exactly what they look like—and lo show them unmistakably what Is and what is not becoming to them, so far as their appearance is concerned. ' But most women don't know much about their own personalities. They aren't well enough acquainted with themselves to know which of their personality traits should be played up as assets, and which should he played down. Yet it Is really a lot more Important for a woman to know she Is at her worst when she Is being unkind than It is for her to know she should never wear blue.
