This is Part 4 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 4 women. You can also read my previous posts on the shopping tendencies of Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 women.
The Importance Of Following Your Natural Shopping Tendencies
Your shopping habits are a big function in determining your Type. Different behavior tendencies 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 with her Type of expression.
We can fix that.
The Type 4 “Exact” Shopper
People with Type 4 Energy are consistent, structured, steady, and stable. They are a constant in the world. While they are straightforward and linear, they can also take a step back and see the bigger picture. They have a wonderful ability to quickly take an assessment of a situation and know how to line things up to move forward. They also live with an “all or nothing” mindset, which carries into their shopping tendencies. I call them the “Exact” shopper.
These qualities of Type 4 women lead them to be “exact” shoppers. They walk into a store knowing exactly what they want and whether that store has it, and don’t want anything getting in their way. Type 4 also usually either really like or really dislike shopping – they usually aren’t ambivalent.
The 5 Shopping Tendencies of Type 4 Women
1. Type 4s are shopping loners.
When a Type 4 is shopping, she prefers an independent experience. That means often shopping alone and not wanting help from a salesperson. Other people simply get in the way of them accomplishing their mission.
2. Type 4s don’t want to be interrupted.
Building off of the first tendency, a Type 4 woman goes into the store with a strong idea of what she wants. They are focused, and any interruption is just an unnecessary distraction.
3. Type 4s know what they want.
The reason why Type 4 women like a solo shopping experience without interruptions is that they go shopping with a clear idea of what they want. They can tell very quickly whether the store can support them in their quest. They have a keen awareness of their shopping desire and how to find it.
4. Type 4s read reviews.
What’s really interesting is that Type 4 women tend to read 1 and 2-star reviews first, and give them more weight than 4 and 5-star reviews. This is part of their critiquing nature. They look for faults, imbalances, and weaknesses. It would be wise for a Type 4 to keep this in mind and don’t give too much power to negative reviews.
5. Type 4s will spend more and own less.
Type 4 women can be minimalists in regard to their wardrobes. This is especially true of those who are not fans of shopping. But this also means they keep items for a long time and often are willing to spend a little more for high-quality items that will last.
