    Default Can you tell a person's type by just looking at them?

    been thinking about this, sometimes I can get like a "1" vibe or a "6" vibe from certain people just by watching how they carry themselves. not sure how many of those i'm actually right about though.

    more than anything though I can usually tell a 3 just by watching them at work, they get so focused on what they're doing and how they do it that they can take something really boring if they wanted to and almost make it interesting to watch, just to see how intent they get.

    for example, some obv 3s (off the top of my head):

    can anyone else see people and guess their type like this?

    Some people are so obvious.

    But some are very difficult even if you know them very well.

    -I can usually tell a 2w1 just by their voice, they all have that certain tone that they always use... it kinda sounds like they're talking in a higher pitch that they would normally talk. i don't really know how to describe it, but if you know a 2w1 irl you prob know what i'm talking about.

    -I can tell a 3 just by watching them work on something. If it's something they care about, they give it their all, and it shows

    -surprisingly, i'm not really too good at pointing out my own type. i guess 5s are just so quiet, they're the type of people i never really think about typing. we're too good at being invisible XD

    -9s, and some 9-fixes are really easy to type once I start talking to them. they just kinda give off this subtle "go with the flow" vibe that i think i'm good at picking up on, especially when we're in a group of people talking

    just occurred to me, are N-doms better at typing the heart triad?

    I think you can tell types by how they look. Couple links of interest:

    I think you can get a vibe, but I wouldn't really trust it until it's confirmed. And even when it's confirmed it's not confirmed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

    So, as long as you acknowledge that you can never assume accuracy and you're only using typology systems as a vocabulary for describing what you seen in people-- sure, why not?

    The face, especially the eyes, reveal a lot about a person. The mouth is the second most expressive part of the face. Most of a persons energy seem to be expressed out of those two portals into the soul. There are other portals *ahem* nostrils *ahem*, but I'll leave that to the freaks to explain. So yes, over time, I can spot patterns and possibly type such a person depending on my level of knowledge of the system.

    So taking this smiley for example -->
    Bright smiley energy obviously = so/sx.

    ==> mouth expresses friendly you can trust me; the one eye smiling suggests I know something you don't and I'm obviously hiding it from you... probably a type 3w4 salesman

    ahhh that Gangnam style video XD! it's like a freakin epidemic here!

    You know, I'd normally lean towards intense skepticism with this kind of thing, but if you look at these videos

    Enneagram 8s


    Enneagram 1s


    I watched these whole series of Enneagram interview by ConsciousTV and these are the only 2 types that have a distinct look. 8s are all large, sturdy and solidly built and 1s are all very 'straight', stiff, tense-looking and thin. By straight I mean, you know how a human body have this natural undulations and rhythm...these 1s look like they ironed that all out and so their bodies are made up of straight lines.

    It's interesting how they're also both gut types.
