    This thread hasn't really spoken to the claims that facial phenotype is actually a very reliable method to type a person with. If you guys are familiar with AlboP, you'll know they put a great deal of trust into facial typing and report complete accuracy.

    Here's a video they spend (mostly) talking about it. They say they identified a toddler/baby who couldn't talk yet as an enfp (he had "little enfp eyes"). His parents couldn't pottytrain him, but when they tried methods that were sympathetic to the needs of an enfp, the kid learned in a night.

    A Little Bit of Personality: Facial Typing Preview (Skip to 4:35)

    Thoughts? Is there any truth to this or is this hogwash? If we ARE born with our cognition, it seems conceivable, and almost logical to me that it be connected to body-type.
    I don't necessarily type just by face, but I do take someone's physical demeanor and appearance into consideration and that does include the face. More accurately, though, I take everything into consideration, including how some people are psychologically or emotionally invested with being known as a certain type, for whatever reason; everything says something. That's why I prefer to say gestalt.

    I think my accuracy is fair. It takes me longer to type someone by photos alone, so I prefer moving images and to hear their voice and to see what they are like/look like on a regular basis. I need to see clothing choices, the kind of art/entertainment they enjoy, how they enjoy it. If I have access to someone in the flesh then I'm much better. I'm also really good at picking up on mistypings; I'm better when someone says, "I'm an _ _ _ _ ," and I'll just feel like, Noooo you're mistyped. And I've been right about every one of those if I've met them in person.

    Just watched a few minutes of the video. Both speakers seem very with it, so that's a good sign and very important. My thoughts on this, even before the video, is that the concept itself is not hogwash. But you can have a legitimately workable idea that gets written off as hogwash because you suck at 'selling' it, or you're nuts and have nefarious intentions behind your system.

    Eww, feelings! (Just kidding.)

    This is probably why I absolutely suck at typing people based on their looks. For me, the closest I get to that is picking up a general vibe based on their posture, gestures, voice modulation, etc.

    Edit: I see you mentioned clothing choices, too. That's a big one. For instance, I can't ever picture any INTJ wearing anything pink or frilly. Or an ISTJ being caught dead in public wearing pajamas and slippers.

    Facial features don't say much. It's a minute step above (or below?) phrenology.

    What those features do and how they act, though, can give a fairly strong insight into the personality of the person that controls them -- or at least into their state of mind at the moment.

    Re 5) INFJ -- I'd need to see some more photos/video, but I'm leaning a bit towards ENFJ, though I can see how INFJ also works.

    For sure. Clothing was definitely involved in helping me determine that someone was mistyped (I just accidentally typed 'misstyled', hah!).

    Visual typing is fun but I don't take it seriously. It's in the same vicinity as phrenology and astrology.
