Robert A. Rohm is a PhD-level psychology expert who co-authored two D-I-S-C personality 4-type system PARENTING books; both Jane Segerstrom and Harriet McJimsey's style books were college textbooks; Belle Northrup was a university professor who wrote a book about costume; Suzanne Caygill is famous for her television show, from teaching her Caygill 4-type style system, and because several students in her lineage have famous books on style. These people are actual experts in style or psychology. In comparison, Carol Tuttle is an unlicensed EFT Tapping practitioner / "New Age" energy-healing practitioner (NOT a psychotherapist as some websites claim).

"Heavy lidded, almond shaped eyes," "smiling eyes," "dreamy eyes," "sculptured look," & "star" etc. are in my reviews (and in my Listmania of Books related to Dressing Your Truth DYT on Amazon.

Although it seems Caygill-similar Irenee Riter is closest to Dressing Your Truth from energy movement, tools, Yin Yang, and haircoloring & hairstyles for the 4 types; or even Caygill-related Angela Wright with the elements (water/air/fire/earth), personality quiz in book, and colors for the 4 types; the closest style-with-personality system is probably Segerstrom. Segerstrom gives credit to Caygill-student run John Kitchener PSC in her book, and Carol Tuttle at the end of Dressing Your Truth book writes about being typed by Caygill student Taylor B. Sinclaire and then using notes from a class by the same Caygill-student run PSC to create Dressing Your Truth. Segerstrom has 2 books on finding your "SIGNATURE STYLE" (see my review); her first book is about the 4 "PRIMARY TYPES" (Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4) and her second book is about the "SECONDARY TYPES" (example: "T3-4"). Segerstrom books have detailed info on how to dress with design lines, texture, pattern, fabrication, & color and also hairstyles.
