Dr. Phil’s test: How do others see you?
Posted on

I took this test and got a 34. I think this is a fairly accurate description of me.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who’s extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

Dr. Phil did this test on Oprah and scored 55, while Oprah got 38 (similar to me).

Now add up the total number of points, check your total, and see how others see you.

OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should handle with care. You’re seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don’t always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality, a natural leader, who’s quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once, someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting, someone who’s constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding, someone who’ll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful, and practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who’s extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn’t want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don’t exist. Some people think you’re boring. Only those who know you well, know that you aren’t.

SSI brings Aéropostale to Manila
Posted on

American retail giant, Aéropostale, opens its flagship store this May 2013 at the ground floor of the new Glorietta in Makati.
Named after a 1920s airmail company, the mall-based brand opened its first store in 1987, offering high-quality, fashionable wardrobe staples for teens. Today, Aéropostale is one of the fastest growing retailers of casual apparel and accessories with a price range that’s easy on the pocket.

Register

Just to give you an idea and feel of the brand, last October 2012, Aéropostale opened a new concept store at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, Long Island, New York.
The new and impressive store concept evokes a vintage feel with New York-inspired artwork and framed chalkboards that double as a Community board to keep customers in the loop with the many activities Aéropostale has lined up for the year.

Entrance

Vibrant colored fixtures paired with dark wood, exposed bricks, and state-of-the-art lighting provide contrast and dimension, to give the store a warm and inviting feel.

Store Shot

While tucked in the back of the store is a fun and flirty Girls room or haven for underwear, yoga and dorm items

Dorm Shop

Each of the store’s five dressing rooms features a New York City neighborhood theme like Soho, Williamsburg, West Village, East Village, and Park Slope.

The store design is a collaboration between Aéropostale’s internal team and the award-winning, Montreal-based design and consulting firm, GH+A Design.
With its heritage and New York roots, Aéropostale is sure to be the next fashion hot spot in the Metro.
