My Future

My Brain Hemisphere

Right Brained

Although I am capable of using both the right and left side of my brain depending on the situation, I am most comfortable while using the right side of my brain. That means that I am spontaneous, abstract, and imaginative. Because I am a right brain thinker, I could use more organization skills, planning, and structure.

My Personality Type

My #1 color is Orange

I have an Orange personality type. That means I have low structure, I'm fun-loving, and I'm adventurous. This would mean that in a job I would be a creator who comes up with ideas. I typically think outside the box.

Decision Making: Extroversial Decision Maker

When making decisions I tend to make them deliberately and follow the conceptual style. People with that decision making style are Insightful and enthusiastic, shows concern for others views. Others could see my decision making as slow, indecisive, or too idealistic. The best organizational fit for my type of decision making is one that allows for loose, simple organization, decentralized setting and informal.

Education- In fashion design, employers seek individuals with a 2-year or 4-year degree who are knowledgeable about textiles, fabrics, ornamentation, and fashion trends. Designers must have a strong sense of the esthetic—an eye for color and detail, a sense of balance and proportion, and an appreciation for beauty. Fashion designers also need excellent communication and problem-solving skills. Despite the advancement of computer-aided design, sketching ability remains an important advantage in fashion design. A good portfolio—a collection of examples of a persons best work—often is the deciding factor in getting a job.
