Ties are Still the Best Power Tool


TIEnoTie

The man on the left is attractive. He is well dressed. In a club setting, he would be positively received. In a formal business setting, he would not command the same credibility or respect as the man on the right.

  • In the grocery store or pharmacy, which man would you defer to if the two of you approached a cashier at the same time?

Experts assert that we defer to those who have an important or high-status look.

  • Which man makes more money?
  • Which man is the boss, and which is the employee?

A classy tie suggests that you take your job seriously and are successful. Ties convey authority and status.

    Definitely the man on the right. His tie just naturally draws my attention to him.

    When I started working as a pharmacist there was a strict dress code. All pharmacists had to wear a tie issued by the company. As dress standards went down the drain and you could wear just about anything you wanted, I continued to wear my tie until I got tired of customers with a complaint approaching me for help because I appeared to be the manager. That stopped after I no longer wore a tie, in deference to the manager who had eagerly given up his tie for a T-shirt.

    A tie is a power tool. I don’t understand why business men are so ready to give them up.

    Hi, Sandy:
    In the grocery store or pharmacy, which man would you defer to if the two of you approached a cashier at the same time? The one with the tie, but then again, as a single woman, I would defer to the one without the tie, because to me, he is handsomer, laid back, and on his way to relaxing after a hard day’s work.

    Which man makes more money? That’s a tricky one to me, as a single woman, I wouldn’t be able to tell. Because it really depends on the time of day I see these two. With the age of start-ups and young entrepreneurs, it would be hard to really gauge by clothing.

    Which man is the boss, and which is the employee? Again, hard to gauge. Tradition may dictate the one with the tie is the boss, and the one without isn’t. But, tradition is busy being flouted these days.

    Which man would you want your daughter to marry? I’m single; so, the one without the tie. More approachable, and seemingly more charming and relaxed. My father would think the same, because he would see the man with the tie as more stuffy for a first meeting.
