I'm a Nippon shopaholic  

This page may cause some distress to some involved in the shopping sector. In particular, Lord Chad Stone of Gandel. The good lord's complex has its own postcode. If he ever wondered what the behaviour pattern of all the silly gentiles who shop there on the Saturday, he now has his answers thanks to Oxor's keen eye for observation. But you are trying to find out her pattern and this page is yet another Oxor technique available exclusively to the cohort.

Included on this page are some overriding characteristics of each quadrant. Things may spin a bit out of control if you have a roommate or a partner with a certain High quadrant with who who has an alternate High quadrant. You share the shopping and stocking of food and that is where the trouble starts. If you have a blend of two High quadrants, that will change your grocery shopping and refrigerator personality slightly as well. For example, if a High S and a High C went over to Costco one may see a display of retro soft drinks on the shelf that they knew their family would love. That person may stand in front of the display for five minutes trying to decide if they could bring themselves to buy something impulsively that was not on the shopping list. Eventually, this person walked away without the soft drinks so you, as an experienced member of the Oxor cohort, could pick that shopper as a High C. Any wonder you observe couples who have been married for 50 years arguing over the shopping when they are meant to be in retirement bliss.

You will most likely need assistance :-) This might tell you what but it will not tell you how.

1. Shopping Style by the Director - ESTJ

The Director is the Border Collie

The Dictator


General characteristics of a High D based on their fridge: The Deliberate Shopper.
! Their fridge has a very minimalistic look to it. Tendency to be "needs-based" grocery shoppers. They have a particular item in mind that they need and they go to the store to pick it up with no fuss, no comparison shopping and no dilly-dallying. For "needs-based" shoppers, going to the grocery store is something that only happens out of sheer necessity. The idea of popping into the grocery store to "see what looks good" is total craziness to a high D.
! In most cases, they do not like to shop because it is a distraction from other things that they would rather be doing. They tend to only go to the store to buy what they need the moment they need it. If you open someone's fridge and it is virtually empty except for the necessities, they likely to be a High D.
! However, there is another grocery shopping possibility for the deliberate High D. If grocery shopping is one of the primary household responsibilities of a High D, they are probably crushing it. Many extreme coupon users tend to be High D. It makes sense, though coupon clipping is often attributed to the hyper-organized High C. The High D is incredibly competitive. They love the idea of "winning" at shopping. For these kinds of High D shoppers, it is not necessarily as much about saving money as it is about walking away from the store knowing they got a better deal than everyone else. If this is the case, their fridge might well be packed and chaotic, filled to the brim with 'bargains.


Shopping Category: CATEGORY 4. The Style Pragmatist.
! Formerly used to haul shop (a shopping spree) and then most of the stuff would go back.
! Tends these days to be much more selective.
! Picks and chooses only what they think will be perfect.
! Always tries stuff on to make sure.

Shopping Method: The Effective Style Traditionalist.
! Sometimes shops with a specific purpose in mind particularly for a special event or to go with an existing outfit.
! For he specific purpose will directly to the most likely store and would only go to a second choice of store if they did not find what they were looking for. This happens maybe 4 to 5 times a year.
! alternative method is if they are tagging along with their family or killing time while traveling. That is more of a window-shopping experience. If they scan a store and see a garment style or colour story they like, they will spend spend more time. Otherwise, they just walk by or do a quick scan. They would need to find something really interesting to be motivated to buy.
! In any event, they are always touching the fabrics, reading the care instructions and content labels, looking at seam construction and other minutiae etc.
! If they try something on it needs to fit and to fit well and alterations are on the cards even though they do not have the time.
! They love a good price and might peruse a few but not all sales racks. If it is an undergarment that will get good use I am not above spending top dollar if needed.

E. Hunter Observations of shopping for this pattern:

"I foresee that you will nit-pick on minutiae at the shop and will be an embarrassment accordingly. I will avoid going shopping with you. You are the second worst customer behind the Perfectionist."

! On 'Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day', a High I has their work cut out for them. Not ones to typically have the patience for meticulously organizing their refrigerator or planning meals ahead of time; they are drawn to buying whatever looks good at the moment. It is not necessarily about need; it is about want. They love to try new things. Colourfully packaged, stylish and unusual food items are all attractive to a High I. They love to entertain too and like to have lots of food on hand just in case a spontaneous get-together breaks out.
! A High I has fun with a charismatic and exuberant personality. Their fridge reflects this and will be full of colouful fruits, veggies and unique foods others have never heard of before. Thay shop without lists, putting together creative meal ideas on the fly as they roll through the aisles. They are also suckers for chic or unique grocery shops, farmers' markets and splurge-worthy items. They are great people to visit because their fridges are always chock-full of delicious and exciting food options.
! As they are so disorganised, the High I is also likely to have a bunch of expired products jammed in the back, mostly things they decided to try on a whim but either did not like or forgot about.


Shopping Category: CATEGORY 3. The Style Dreamer.
! Picks and chooses and then has to return to the store as it is never right.

The Esoteric Artist


General characteristics of a High S based on their fridge: The Sensible Shopper.
! The High S likes to keep to a familiar routine. They prefer to shop at the same store every week. They know what they want, tend to gravitate towards the same brands and rarely deviate from their shopping lists.
! The fridge of a High S can often be identified by the presence of bulk products and multiple leftover containers. The High S likes to make sure that there is enough food for everyone, everyone is happy and no-one leaves the table hungry. A good portion of their fridge is usually devoted to leftovers and condiments: meals that they have already made and things that will help them make meals in the future.

You can spot the difference in that the High I's fridge is full of fresh and unique products; items they were drawn to in the moment.

The Practitioner is the Alaskan Malamute

The Martyr


General characteristics of a High C based on their fridge: The Coordinated Shopper.
! If you have ever observed someone put a bottle of tomato sauce into the crisper because it is the only place they can find room for it, you can rest assured that it will not be a High C as they would never do such a thing.
! The High C will do the following - Shop from a list; Has a plan for how to move through the grocery store. They have planned their route ahead of time and already have their coupons loaded onto their fly buys card if they have one; They already know what everything should cost and will rarely buy something at full retail price. They may keep a running tally of the toll in their heads while they shop and are accurate in predicting the final total; At the fridge, they will put meat in the deli drawer and vegetables in the crisper. They only have one bottle of mustard, as opposed to three half-empty bottles; The fridge is clean with no expired products or past-edible leftovers hidden in the back; Similar products are stored together—olives next to pickles and mustard next to mayonnaise; If someone goes into the fridge and puts the milk on the wrong shelf, the next time the High C opens the refrigerator, they will move it to its proper place. ! The High C is organized, analytical and meticulous, both when it comes to planning a shopping trip and putting groceries away in the refrigerator. Just open up their fridge door and you will see this reflected back at you. They do not have a crowded fridge. They only store what they will reasonably use and put everything away neatly with a clear sense of order. They do not need 'National Clean Out Your Fridge Day' because they have already cleaned out their fridge. It is not beyond the possibility that may have a monthly fridge clean-out schedule that they already adhere to. They are that organized.

General characteristics of a High C based on their fridge: The Coordinated Shopper.
! If you have ever observed someone put a bottle of tomato sauce into the crisper because it is the only place they can find room for it, you can rest assured that it will not be a High C as they would never do such a thing.
! The High C will do the following - Shop from a list; Has a plan for how to move through the grocery store. They have planned their route ahead of time and already have their coupons loaded onto their fly buys card if they have one; They already know what everything should cost and will rarely buy something at full retail price. They may keep a running tally of the toll in their heads while they shop and are accurate in predicting the final total; At the fridge, they will put meat in the deli drawer and vegetables in the crisper. They only have one bottle of mustard, as opposed to three half-empty bottles; The fridge is clean with no expired products or past-edible leftovers hidden in the back; Similar products are stored together—olives next to pickles and mustard next to mayonnaise; If someone goes into the fridge and puts the milk on the wrong shelf, the next time the High C opens the refrigerator, they will move it to its proper place. ! The High C is organized, analytical and meticulous, both when it comes to planning a shopping trip and putting groceries away in the refrigerator. Just open up their fridge door and you will see this reflected back at you. They do not have a crowded fridge. They only store what they will reasonably use and put everything away neatly with a clear sense of order. They do not need 'National Clean Out Your Fridge Day' because they have already cleaned out their fridge. It is not beyond the possibility that may have a monthly fridge clean-out schedule that they already adhere to. They are that organized.


Shopping Category: CATEGORY 1. The Style Strategist.
! Absolutely selective and often comes home with nothing.
! Walks through the store rather quickly unless on a mission to find a specific item.
! If they find something that they like by chance, then they will buy it.

Shopping Method: The Complex Style Theorist.
! Looks and looks and looks and then usually decides it looks a bit extravagant or too too expensive.
! Spends hours at the centre taking for ever, then leaves with nothing.
! Suddenly, when on the way to somewhere else will see something in a window, know it is the ‘right thing’, will rush in and buy it irrespective of the cost. Is thrilled with the purchase. ! Their whole wardrobe is the 'right thing'. Anything that was planned and bought ‘properly’ is never worn.
! Occasionally, the ‘right thing’ has been in an opportunity shop. Whether it is $3 or $300 it does not matter if it is fashionable or not as long as it is the 'right thing’. ! Despite the above, they have so much fun inside their own heads, with endless possibilities and information to be analyzed and categorized, that they can fail to follow through to applied action. This can result in them wearing outfits that are 'aged'.

E. Hunter Observations of shopping for this pattern:

"I foresee that you see will possibly be seen in old stuff and shopping is not the top priority. You are the worst customer, just ahead of the Director."
