Ok now you may say he finally has lost his mind, but I stumbled over something I wanted to share:
Ok, if a genuine smile comes from the unconcious, could it be then a helpful indicator to identify an Extroverted Intuitor ?!From the BBC Fake Smile Test:
Fake smiles can be performed at will, because the brain signals that create them come from the conscious part of the brain and prompt the zygomaticus major muscles in the cheeks to contract. These are the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth outwards.
Genuine smiles, on the other hand, are generated by the unconscious brain, so are automatic. When people feel pleasure, signals pass through the part of the brain that processes emotion. As well as making the mouth muscles move, the muscles that raise the cheeks – the orbicularis oculi and the pars orbitalis – also contract, making the eyes crease up, and the eyebrows dip slightly.
Well that's a relation here, but it lacks of course ANY provoable facts. The thing is we talked about N and S being generally unconcious processes and then there is the undenieable truth that for example ENFP's and ENTP's do smile often or are at least in a good mood generally.
So if you have the unconcious working with the temperament of a black spanish stallion, there could be a relation, couldnt it ?!
My ISTJ friend for example, has a fundamental knack for laughing out loud, one of the funniest guys I know. But he has his filters, he mostly only laughs about humor that doesnt change. What means his humor does not change. The funny topics are always the same, just their perception changes and so funny things are created. But his humor is not innovative.
Well just an idea here, could be total BS, but if it works it could give another indicator for Ne in people.
With Ni it's somewhat different. I think the theory would apply to them too, but I am not ready to go this far yet. With Ni I experienced they tend to laugh about things, I didnt grasp at first, but then after they have explained it. If that would be all of the difference in this theory between Ne and Ni, it works for them too.
