We constantly leave clues to our personality in the way we do things. For instance, the way we plan our day or arrange our wardrobes would give a lot of insight into who we are as people, as women. It's not just those things though, even your purse is a window into your soul. Women and their purses/handbags are legendary for the number of things that can fit in there, and most of the time we might even forget what we put in there. But, the contents of our purse really explain the people we are.
So what do the contents of your purse say about you? Read on to find out.
Do you have extra sets of everything in your bag? From wipes to sunscreen to diaper rash cream, if you're a new mom, and anything you can think of that your children or spouse might need. If that's the state of your purse, which probably looks like a watermelon at this point, then you like to be extra-prepared for everything. You could a new mom worried about your parenting journey or an old hand at this game, who knows how their family forgets everything. So, you have had to be the go-to person for them.
When you put your hand into your bag to get something, it's highly possible that you don't find it on the first try. Maybe, you even had to shine the flashlight on your phone down there to find what you were looking for. If that's the case, then it's possible that you are a little overwhelmed most of the time. Clearing out your bag of empty wrappers, receipts and scraps of paper is the last thing on your mind because there are larger pressing issues in your life which are taking up your time and mind space.
If your bag has just the bare necessities then it's possible that you are a minimalist. You most likely know where each item has been placed in your bag. If that's the case, then you are at peace with yourself. You know what you need and don't want anything cluttering your space, physical or mental. You don't have any pressing issues eating up your time. You know how to cope with whatever challenge comes your way.
If your bag has fragrant and calming hand-cream, a great perfume, some accessories, and your favorite lipstick, it's likely that you love to take care of yourself. You probably carry an eye-mask to get some shut-eye when you are tired or have great music that calms you. You know how to take care of yourself and don't depend on others for assurance or for your well-being.
If there are a bunch of gadgets in your bag apart from your phone, you probably like to stay connected with friends and family. You are a tech-friendly and modern woman, who is also a little bit of an expert at community engagement. You know how to bring people together thanks to your social skills. You are friendly with everyone around you and they know that they can rely on you. You don't play favorites and like to stay neutral so you can stay connected to everyone.
When you're a go-getter, your bag generally contains all the things you need to be ready for anything life throws at you. Gum, notebook, pen, pencil, stain remover pen, earbuds, apart from your phone, charger, and other essentials: there's nothing you DON'T carry. Being organized makes you happier and at peace with yourself. You wish to be organized as much as possible in all spheres of your life. Those around you know that you are great at organizing parties and events, so they come to you for it.Disclaimer : This article is for your entertainment / infotainment purposes.
