Reading about on personality psychology, I have met several vague claims that different personality types prefer different clothing styles.

  • Apparently, people who are more keen to their senses will prefer softer clothes.
  • People who highly value order and efficiency have been said to prefer a more formal clothing style.

Are there any research studies to support such claims? (I'm looking for links to scientific reports)

  • $\begingroup$ Could you include references to those 'vague claims' you have read? $\endgroup$
