Today was the Seventh Annual Research Conference for my Communication class at Texas A&M University. My research question was "Does the way a college student dresses determine how productive they are throughout the day?" I got so much feedback from this conference, it was amazing. I was just doing this project for class, I mean I made it good for the class but I wasn't expecting as much feedback as I got, especially sense my project was black and white. There's this quote and it goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls." So basically I wanted to see if I could get peoples attention with a simple black and white poster among the colorful, flashy posters, and I did.
I dress up everyday because I believe the more productive you dress the more productive you actually are. In my ethnography research I wanted to test my theory against other people. I studied five female students at Texas A&M University and compared their behavior and how they felt when they dressed downed verses when they dressed up (check the slideshow below for more info). My research indeed proved that the more productive you dress the more productive you actually are. Something about the way you dress sends that message to your brain, and the brain then determines your productiveness. It's a mind thing, like I said before, the mind is powerful. Dressing up and wearing a pair of shades can make you more productive.
