What Does Our Instagram Feed Tell Us About Us?

I'm in love with this Instagram account called @ihavethisthingwithfloors. It's one of those instances where I go, "Dammit! Why didn't I think of that?" It is just perfect and I know I could have started it. But hey, someone always beats us to the punch, isn't it?

I noticed though that most of the posts are made by women. How do I know? I can tell by their shoes.

Anyway, that got me thinking...

  • Are women more interested about floors and tiles?
  • Are women always looking at their feet or the ground so they naturally notice the floor better?
  • Have you noticed most Instagram accounts that feature architecture are run by men?
  • Are men always looking up that they notice buildings more?
  • Why do women look down and men look up?
  • How does this "preference" affect our perspective in life? 

What do you think? Where do you fall in this spectrum? Do you look up or down most of the time? What does your Instagram feed tell you about you? What catches your eye?
