    If you want to talk about what you have to offer, that's of interest to some people, but folks here kick theories around all day every day and nobody who's expert in any one thing ever asks to be paid. So I'm hoping that was a rhetorical question, to what effect I'm not sure.

    Thanks Jaguar, that's exactly what I came to post.

    I don't want to talk to a scientist. Those monkeyfighters are lying and getting me pissed.

    I only resumed the conversation here because of the negative things Cascadeco stated in her post.

    At the point where the gallery starts throwing rotten tomatoes I absolutely have to leave.

    Thanks for those who participated in the discussion. I am quite pleased with the results. I regret that I am being deprived of a simple link in my signature. This has never occurred on any other forum I've participated in.

    It seems to me that typing a personality by somatotype is about as accurate as saying that someone is pale because they don't like going outside. While that may be a factor, there may be others -- the person may not tan very well, may live in an unsunny climate or may be anemic, etc. And of course not all people who are not pale like going outside, either...

    I agree that this seems a little problematic.
    People in families tend to have similar body shapes, seeing that they share the same genes. They don't necessarily share the same personality. There are a lot of clashing personalities in families so...?

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    It's so easy to ascribe being fat to a personality flaw, too.

    The vast majority of my family is fat and nervous, two conflicting things on Psydigg's little chart. However, if you wanted to be racist about it, you could say that it's evolutionary-adaptive. As Russian Jews these traits could be considered advantageous, while once they got to America they all ballooned up. And yes, my family was fat before the "obesity epidemic" happened. That's just the way they were.

    Any system that tells people that they must be the wrong type because they don't fit a specific body type goes against the whole concept of MBTI being a self typed system based on understanding self and MBTI. This is stepping into astrology territory!
