Where do our notions about presentability come from?
Some people are really into looks. Women of this sort would never venture out of their houses without being fully made up. Some would never even step out of the bathroom without having their “faces” on. I think that many of them feel like it is everyone’s duty to be fully presentable the moment they step out the door.
Others are more into being relaxed. Men of this sort would just as soon wander around the neighborhood, if not the workplace naked, if that were possible. For them, clothes and presentability are a waste of time.
Where do these ideas come from, and what do you think is their relative merit?
