What does your hair say about you? After some extensive research (a couple Google searches) this is what I was able to discover about The Effects of Hair Parting on Social Appraisal and Personal Development:
Men W/Left Part: This is natural for men, usually works well for them. Perceived as popular, successful, strong, traditional. Can be out of touch with the feminine side of themselves. Examples: John Wayne, Tom Brokaw, John F. Kennedy, Edward M. Kennedy.
Men W/Right Part: Usually unnatural for men. Can create an uncomfortable image; can cause social shunning, sometimes leading to unusual or eccentric behavior. Perceived as atypical, open, radical.Can work ok if the man is very confident, attractive, or striving to be respected in a non-traditional male role. Examples: Al Gore, Rush Limbaugh, Robert F. Kennedy, Charlie Rose, Tom Snyder.
Men + Women W/No Part, Natural for men and women. Perceived as balanced, trustworthy and wise.
Most of the possible choices generally do not negatively affect perceptions of the individual, but the individuals who are potentially put in the worst position are men who part their hair on the right and who are also striving to be assessed positively within a traditional male role. Observations have shown that the right part on a man may interfere with positive social situations and personal development. We focus in this article on these right-parting men because they seem to exhibit the most consistent correlations and also because they could benefit the most from this information.
A highly illustrative place to observe hair parting and perceived personal attributes is in film and television characters. Consistently, directors, casting agents and hair stylists appear to be choosing a left or a right part for characters that exhibit the characteristics identified with the left and right sides of the brain, and a center part, no hair part or baldness for those characters who have balanced personalities.
The most striking example and perhaps the most illustrative of The Hair Part Theory, is that when Christopher Reeve played Clark Kent, his hair was parted on the right. As Superman, his hair was parted on the left.
Notice earlier, that modern day Superman parts his hair to the left (right hair part). Everything is acceptable and everything works. This article was for laughs.
This article should not be taken serious and I hope my readers understand the irony of all of this and that it makes zero difference to which side you choose to part your hair…
