    Default Brain types and body functions

    I found this rather interesting, as personality typing is able to correlate towards strengths of body functions check it out.

    It's kind of an interesting idea where preference of specific things is concerned (such as eyes and hands), although their chart doesn't make any sense to me. ST and NF don't have any yellow, whatever that is, but NTs are made of it apparently. Oh wait, I see, yellow represents the least preferred areas of physical function. I don't know though, I'm an NT and I love using my hands, not just my brain and my jaw.

    I love using not only my brain, but that whole area of my head. I even use my eyebrows and mouth an incredible amount, as well as my hands. I don't so much care for the rest of my body. That is really interesting how accurately that correlates with how I move.

    I see it as balance, although not really a weakness. For NT yellow is just the least preferred doesn't mean ur bad at it.

    That's fascinating. It looks like the least philosophical/abstract people in the world, athletes, are coming up with their own way of defining the differences between people, and it lines up with ours.

    Guess that means there's some truth in it.

    This really is interesting. My SF friends are great dancers and can make me laugh by imitating crazy movements from celebrities for example. Sometimes I envy those skills which seem so natural for them.

    I've taken dance lessons all my life and used to compete in gymnastics so I'm able to master my body but only when I'm "in the situation". i (NT) need a lot of concentration to do that and preferably a model, pattern in front of me - like somebody doing the movements so that I can mimic them. That's why I function best in a group in those situations.

    And my ex boss (SF) only hired NTs and NFs. For their mental abilities? Maybe.

    It doesn't work for me. I have really good gross motor abilities (I can dance really well, good at soccer, bla bla bla), but my fine motor skills suck.
