Brands reflect the product.It is determinative of your choice to own a thing of such high quality because you trust the product and the benefits that comes with it.And what you wear tells about you, if not all, a part of your own personality(well,you may agree or disagree=))...And you choose a product branded as such because you think it fits you and make you look good at it.But do you believe that your brand reveals your own strength and weaknesses?Of your own personality? Of your understanding about yourself?

For me, its a major-major part of my life that actually presenting my personality and strength. For this reason, I do believe with this revelation. I t made me strong when it comes to pursuing to buy a brand that i want. I work hard for it until i get the money for the brand and that's revealing my strength and ob course my capacity to buy that one.

For me brand is important but it depends where we used it.Because sometimes if we buy a not branded especially in cars and machines. For example if you change some parts of your cars like the brakes if you buy a local/ not branded it may cause you accident and the parts will not last longer.But if you buy your things like clothes, we can buy a not branded as long as gives comfort.Sometimes if we buy our things branded and not branded is like the same because in branded we buy their name not their product. For me some are not brands reflect the product because some branded product are easily to destroyed than the not branded.

For me when it comes to clothes I don't look for the brand. I buy clothes if I like the style and when I feel comfortable when wearing it.But most of my clothes are second hand"wagwag"specially the jackets because it will last longer.But I think for some people they prefer branded clothes because they are loyal to the brand and may be they are benefited well by that brand product.

No, I think that brands have nothing to do with one's personality and the like. I think that the products that we use can be a reflection of our way of living not the brand because we can use products of different brands but still remain to be the same person as we used to be. For example if you use clothes that are short and revealing, people have the idea that you are some what "malandi" but does it matter if the skirt you use is branded by Levi's and if you use a skirt that is with a lower kind of brand, the thing is you are still known to be "malandi" because of the way you dress not the brand that your clothes carry. Brands can be a basis of you status in life because the well known brands are those that are expensive which would mean that you are more of the elite and well-blessed ones because you are able to afford the expensive brands of products.

_no. I just wear my clothes and doesnt mind the brands at all. For me, looking into brands of things are only desires but it doesnt represents who you are. Look at people who uses branded things its just because they believe it fits them, is it really fitting on there personality? I think not. When I wear clothes, I always look into my outfit not the brands of what i wear. Maybe it reveals your capacity to buy but not your personality.

Branded things really are Expensive but its is not only the brand name you pay for if you buy some... it is the good quality that comes with the name.. For me, personality does not really revealed by using branded things.. its is revealed by the way you wear you things even it is branded or not and the way you look at yourself when you look at the mirror..

I don't agree that brands reveal the strength and personality of a person. It is not a guaranty that if wear a branded items it means your a good person or vise versa. Having a branded items is good if you how to dress it up. A cheap dress can look expensive depending on the person who use it. Carry your dress, don't let your dress carry you.

I disagree that brands can reveal your strength and personality. It is because people just wear clothes that fits to them and they choose any clothes that they feel comfortable wearing it.For me, I buy products that have good quality that sometimes I don't really even care about its brand.

Brands do reveal part of your personality but definitely not all. If you are a person who delights in simplicity, you would probably not be interested in buying shirts with complicated prints and rugged jeans. If you are the person who is just outgoing and active, you would be having second thought if offered formal wears. With regards to strengths and weaknesses, it well be difficult to determine if you're looking at the brands they buy especially if what you are talking about are talents and potentials. You would only determine their financial strength quite easily. Regarding if brands shows our understanding about ourselves, I would most likely agree. For in the first place, we know who we are and we would want to choose the brand that would define us. =)

Not much because not a brand can make my strength be reveal but rather my own ability to make a job finish it and never turn my back to a responsibility that given to me and a experience that will shown my personality.

yes! brand personality reveal what i wanted, what i wear, what i eat, and what will be my attitude. because it tells what my personality comes from and what kind of a person i am. i am just a simple person that i have is what i have. i never buy new thing every 6month or yearly. if i think that my things are still useful i will not by just for my luxury. because i also think where my money goes if i buy non sense things that makes my house tight. well i usually do recycle. to avoid plenty things in my home.

Some think that when they wear branded products, they possess wealth and power. That it will boost their confidence and lift their spirits. Well,it is partly true but not at all times. For me, it is not the brand that you wear but the way you carry it. By knowing yourself, you will determine what will fits and makes you good looking at. Branded ones are less important if you know how to carry yourself well. There are instances wherein some people wear branded items but they don't look good wearing it. They look "baduy" still. The most important thing is what makes you comfortable wearing at and you don't look as if you are trying hard.

It is not important if you wear branded or the cheap ones as long as it fits you and it looks good to you. There are instances wherein some people can not carry themselves even though they wore branded things. They look "baduy" still. So most importantly is that you know what it fits you, what makes you look better, and makes you comfortable wearing.

No, I do not believe that brands reveals my own strength and personality because anything I wear like my clothes it doesn't matter if it is expensive or not. All I care is, if it's look nice to me and if it's comfortable for me to suit then that's it! =)

Yes. "For me, brands reveal not only your own strength and personality but also your lifestyle and fashion". I am very specific in choosing brands. I am always having a survey first or search the Internet to know what are the top brands and choose among them. Most of the time, brands that I choose are the one that are TOP SELLING brands not because they are expensive but because they will not become the top selling brands and people will not buy that brand if that brand do not have a HIGH QUALITY. So for me, TOP SELLING = HIGH QUALITY. (Despite the fact that here in Philippines, TOP SELLING = CHEAP)

Yes, because using brands shows also your personality and strength. By using brand it showcase the things in you and it also reveals the real you. For example, buying an expensive product with less accesories. This shows that you are the type of person who don't care about the price as long as the product is in good condition, good quality and will last long. Another is buying a product that is very attractive or cathcy with a high price but with a very low quality. This shows that the person is not much interested with the quality of the product and maybe that person focuses only eith his/her fasion and desing.

I for one don't buy stuffs based on the brand, I buy things based on the quality. High quality of goods doesn't necessarily mean branded goods. I really don't believe that the brand you buy shows your personality. Well, maybe it just shows that you are well-off than others and thats just it. Besides, brands are just names. It would be silly if someone would associate your personality with a brand.

I won't really go with this idea. People sometimes go for branded clothings and all those stuffs because they think it fits them well or it's somewhat comfortable to use. Being able to wear or to have something with brand does not necessarily mean that you are rich and that you are this or that. Some people do save up an ample amount of their money just to have it. There are a lot of considerations to be taken in to be able to know the personality of someone. It's not just about the things he/she have. Looks can be deceiving anyway:))

I dont think so. I am comfortable that the quality of product taht i AM buying.. When I buy the product I fit or try first before I buy or know about the benefits of the product. It affect in the personality because if we buy the product it depends in our choice.We are the one to decide the kinds of product that they are choosen.

A person's personality especially an adult who experienced socializing with other individuals, cannot be described by just a brand. Weaknesses and strengths are too broad to be described or represented by a brand though just a portion might be exhibited by the brand.But sometimes the result of our choices can shape our personality just like choosing to save up or work hard to buy an expensive brand because you know its quality or capacity.It shows that a person's loyalty to a brand, no matter the price and circumstances, can remain or will remain. For example, some brands of clothing cater to what we call "emo/s" who, in general, are emotional teens but not all which shows that their weakness is being emotional.
