Replying to LO18730 --


my question to you is this, why do you feel wearing a business suit is a
costume? Do your perceive yourself as a "business person" just because of
your outfit? Wearing clothes for different reasons should not change the
inner person, but I see that you feel it is influential to the conformity
of being similar in thought. I don't feel that way. If you wear a
uniform, that does not change the inner person. I believe in
individuality, even with uniforms, and yet it does release that person
from unwarranted stress to influence. But at the same point, if you look
at a "hooker" what she happens to wear that day really does influence the
outcome. I thought I would throw that one in.

Does this all make sense?
