Makes total sense to me, and seems to be validated by my life experience. You're going to send messages via your face as to how accessible or attractive you want to be, whether you're concerned or not, etc. Of course it's going to change depending on the circumstances, but overall.... For example, my so/sx husband typically looks pleasant, fun/energetic, and approachable while I typically look like I'm intensely zeroing in on someone or something, kind of trying to pull in or devour with my eyes.

It may seem to be a general trend, but not everyone has exaggerated/apparent expressions like in these photos that are indicators of their instinctual variants. Some people's faces may have more subtle looks in comparison to what's been computer generated here. It's useful for quickly typing someone, fun to think of, but I'm hesitant to say that this is completely true. Would need more research done on it.

This whole thing of making up descriptions based on the sx/sp/so system (which is a theory in itself, rather than anything actually shown to exist empirically/quantitavely) is like building theory upon another theory, increasing the odds geometrically that the result is just complete fabrication.
And then adding visual pictures onto it? I think in a particular culture that appearance for SOME Mbti types can become a bit cliche, but not for all types; and this trying to guess variant from a still photo seems to be an exercise in subjectivity."Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

I think the whole idea that you can see such things in someone's eyes is amazing... I mean just knowing what it looks like and recognizing it.. It's some serious crazy alien shit man! Haha like the fact that we know what certain dog barks mean or certain baby cries... Body language and facial expressions... It's just the coolest thing.There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.-Jim Morrison
