FMPC 504 – VALs Assignment
1. According to the test my primary type is innovator, and my secondary type is experiencer.
2. In VAL’s test they describe an innovator as a successful leader who is receptive to new ideas, has an upscale taste and like to express his or her power through independency and personality. I agree with this statement because I consider myself to be eager for action and driven to lead. I am assertive, intelligent and self-esteemed. The most valuable for me is knowledge and competence. That’s why when I do my shopping I try to purchase something which is made me exclusive among others. The most dominant for me in clothes is quality and design. For instance, recently I enriched my wardrobe with pants and jacket from BCBG store regardless high price I think these outfits have upscale design and are qualitative. However, on the other hand I disagree with the statement that image is important for innovator. In my opinion not anybody can be impressed the way you dress or care what type of personality you are. As an old saying goes: “Taste is differ”.
3. On the one hand I agree with the second classification. Being classified as an experiencer I can say that I am focused on possibilities and enthusiastic for new ideas, people and activities. I tend to authentic experience and often seek emotional intensity. I am eager to buy clothes for outdoor activities or sports. As I like cycling and skiing I have a lot of equipment and outfits for these kinds of sport. Cycling jerseys are On the other hand taking to consideration the words that experiencers are keen to spend significant amount of their incomes on fashion it is not about me. In order to purchase something I usually analyze first if I really need one or another item and after that make a decision to purchase it or not.
