This is Part 3 of a 4-part series on how to use the tendencies associated with your Energy Type to your advantage while shopping. In this post, I talk about the shopping tendencies of Type 3 women. You can also read my previous posts on the shopping tendencies of Type 1 and Type 2 women.
The Importance Of Following Your Natural Shopping Tendencies
Your shopping habits are a big function of determining your Type. There are different behavior tendencies that come instinctually from your nature. When you’re not consciously thinking about who you are or who you should be, you allow those natural tendencies to blossom and bring out the real you. When you fight or go against those tendencies, it shows in your appearance and the energy you express.
Whenever I see a woman that looks significantly older than she really is, I know it’s because she isn’t dressing her truth. It might be her hairstyle, makeup, or the clothes she’s wearing, but something is drastically wrong for her Type of expression.
We can fix that.
The Type 3 “Get It Done” Shopper
Type 3 Energy has a push-forward, dynamic, intense quality. It loves to move things into action by saying, “Let’s get going!” It loves adventure, challenges, and new opportunities. People who express a dominant Type 3 energy have a physical, hands-on connection with the world.
These qualities of Type 3 women lead them to be the “get it done” shoppers. They want to get in and out of a store as quickly as possible and don’t want people getting in their way.
The 5 Shopping Tendencies of Type 3 Women
1. You think fast on your feet.
When a Type 3 is shopping, they tend to move through a store swiftly, eyeing like a hawk what they are attracted to. Some Type 3s don’t necessarily like to shop but if they have a good understanding of what they should be buying then it becomes enjoyable. Check out my Style Kit if you need inspiration.
2. Type 3s love getting a good deal.
Getting a good deal might be more important to you than loving the item. Be careful with this and make sure that you find a great item that you really like rather then just getting a good deal.
3. You don’t like taking time to try on clothes.
I’m a Type 3 myself and I definitely don’t like to take the time to try on clothes. Make sure if you are unsure of something that you take the time to try something on and make sure you love it. You don’t want to have to waste time returning an item.
4. Online shopping can be a challenge.
It’s really easy when you’re online to skip over the details. Don’t! This is especially important when you are buying something sight unseen. You can also take advantage of features like size recommendations from Amazon, which are based upon prior purchases from that manufacturer.
5. You tend to not read much about the product.
Even if you’re not online, Type 3s often skip over things like item descriptions, sizing details, and reviews. Take a few minutes to learn about what you’re buying if it’s not a brand you are familiar with. Read some reviews. Understand their return policy. Get the specifics necessary to set yourself up for success.
