    That's an important consideration. I was just thinking about it, but forgot to post.

    Body language, of which facial expressions are part of, has been around longer than speech, and I would assume it's used by all mammals (and likely all reptiles and birds) to discern mood and intent in others, and they certainly wouldn't be able to explain it verbally.

    Humans have even more to go by than do other animals, as how we prepare ourselves (grooming, clothing) can also say something.

    Oh guys OK, that's basic perception of the person, it's the impression you get after very short while, or immediately after first glance; one person seem more kind, one more cruel, one more emotional, one more rational and so on..

    I was trying to say that though we have the impression about someone, still there are many things we don't know about the person at the first glance. Maybe the second guy is a mass murderer, and he's trying to interest you by talking about poor animals in Africa and then kill you. And eat.
    It's that deeper level we cannot determine what it contains, actually we cannot know which one would be a scientist or which one would be a humanist. We might assume who is who by impressions the get, and maybe it would be true. But it can't be for granted until we know them deeper. So it was kinda strange to determine which guy is scientist and which is animal lover for me, based only on photo.

    Someone should get more scientist/vegetarian matches to see if we can tell the difference.

    There was a computer programmer/serial killer picture test posted here a while back, and most people did well.

    Look i'll skip alot of details and make it short, i'm going for a walk.
    as living creature we react to external stimuli.
    As humans, the way we react is defined by alot of factors also defining what we'll call our personnality and consciousness.

    So let's take F, who's reaction to the world externally or and internally are more interpersonnal\emotional. They will obviously developpe a larger palette of 'faces', expressions, way of speaking and behaviors expressing 'feelings'.

    We could try to do the same with I E . S N. F T. P J or their interactions (NT NF S...) and see if there could be differences.

    It's also about self image. Somebody percieving himself as 'a thinker' and expressing himself as such is less probable to be seen making faces with a thousand 'subtile feely messages'. and even less on a picture supposed to 'show him' in one shot.

    but those are more activities than characteristics defining the way we react to our environnement as a whole. a job or particular thing is just too specific.

    There is an undeniable trend for scientists to be NT, and vegetarians to be NF. As is the case with the first example.

    That's not what i'm talking about. It's just too specific. We have to take 'broader' things. Not particular preferences over one way of life.

    We're not asking if extroverts like to go out to that particular night club but if extroverts like to go out more relatively to introverts(crude exemple)

    I know I'm late with it but...

    It's the "I'm calculating the trajectories of artillery shells" look, vs. the "I'm worried about the animals in Africa" look of the NF. -> haha!

    ...

    EcK, good last posts.

    We still don't have enough SJ , NF , SP and NT pics to gaze at!

    Well, right. But a first guess can be useful, even if it later turns out to be wrong. To me, it's all a matter of how that guess is used.


    When it comes to professions, certain personality types are drawn to certain professions because it allows them to exercise their strengths. That's not to say that a scientist must be an NT or that an NT must be a scientist.. but knowing that someone is a scientist can say something about their personality.

    Of course, in any profession, there's also a niche for those of different personality types within them.. such as NT therapists or NF scientists.

    Edit: misread part of the discussion
