    sx/sp - the most "sultry" and possibly temperamental
    so/sx - the most friendly, outgoing, upbeat, seems mostly sincere
    so/sp - something nervous, friendly out of nervousness, a bit strained
    sp/sx- the most blank, not as overtly temperamental as sx/sp, but a bit pouty
    sx/so - like a hyaena baring its teeth (seriously), smiling but almost predatory or hostile, perhaps a catty type

    Men
    -------
    sp/so - passive, perhaps insecure, "nice", slightly sad/wistful/dreamy
    sx/sp - again, the most sultry, a bit disdainful or into himself
    so/sx - again, warmest, but here a little more "fake" and strained than the woman
    so/sp - more sincere & relaxed warmth, but also more contained and calm, more alert than sp/so
    sp/sx - stereotypical "man of few words", looks contained/unaffected, "blank"
    sx/so - slightly smug and a tad vain, mix of tentative and confident


    ----

    Since I mostly can just go on reactions from others & photos of myself (since looking in the mirror we often make faces; not that posing doesn't happen for photos too), then I might be closer to sx/sp in my physical impression. I think I look blank, but people often think I am temperamental/snotty, and when I smile it can have that hostile hyaena look (like the sx/so). But when I am relaxed and happy, then I can look soft/dreamy like the sp/so. In photos I tend to look dreamy or a bit blank & pouty. IDK, sp/sx is probably the best fit still.
    The part I'm curious about is the syn/contra flow affinity, without imagery - ie, just from personality interaction online - correlation with the composites

What attracts me to them is something in the eyes that makes me feel whole...like this is where I belong. I forget how different sxness is though...and how there are degrees of sexual dominance to be taken into consideration.
    Oh yeah arresting doesn't necessarily mean comfortable for me. Rather, the inaccessibility of sp/sx eyes is like a gauntlet being thrown down.

    Yeah, I definitely look the most like so/sx here.
    I don't mean to pry, but why would you even make the eyes?

    I actually went back and read what I wrote earlier in this thread and rerecalled that at one point in time I found a sp/sx arresting to the point of feeling a bit like I'm in cardiac arrest right now. I'm just getting older and want to feel understood.

    Nah. I'm strongly attracted to other sx. But none of the people I've been with were sx. I like to dominate and it's easiest with sp, IMO (so might just find it weird).

    I was just responding to each picture, and they were grouped by sex, so I went with it. I do think people will interpret male/female faces differently, so I think there is validity in the separation. I was not thinking of that when I responded though.

    Oh see that's super interesting to me because power imbalances cause me anxiety in relationships as well. And before I get Crabs or some other fuck coming on here to inform me that *men and women are not physically equal* (no shit Shitlock)... equality exists and it is a must have in a relationship for me.

    It is clearer for me in the pictures of the women... The contra flow look consistently less approachable. The so/sx is the most friendly, but the strained and nervous feel would be off-putting to many.

    With the men, there is an exception with the so/sp, who seems very approachable me, and the so/sx seems a tad strained. The other two contra flow have an arrogant/repellent look. I find the so/sx most attractive, which is who I tend to date.

    Unfortunately, I think people read me like what @senza tema describes....like I am throwing down a gauntlet . That's a bit too close to the bone....

    Isn't the whole point of the theory based on a flow segmentation, ie syn flow attracted to syn flow and same with contra flow? If you identify as sp/sx then so/sx is on the opposite flow?


    My point is that composites only represent one side of the theory, that is, the visual, but if it's to hold water, then there should be the same attraction/affinity without the visual component. Online (not visual/photo sharing) interaction between types should then be able to provide some data to support this.
