I am not a label head. But I travel a lot and there is one brand of luggage that impresses even me. The pockets are all in the right place. It is ideal for an iPad or laptop. It reeks of quality and would say so much about me that the rest of my attire might not proclaim. Sadly it is expensive and I have never convinced myself that I deserve it.

On a slightly related note, I have often been told I am judgemental. It may be true. I can be quick to form an opinion about a person without much to go on. I do not think I am unusual in this. We all do it. But I am usually open to changing my mind.

There is so much information that goes into the make-up of a personality that we could not take it all in. We all take short cuts. We all make inferences from one trait to another. If we think someone is funny we may also think they are intelligent. If you suspect someone is mean, you might suspect they are also controlling. One simple dimension we divide people into is warm and cold.
