    Default Do similar types have similar shaped heads?

    After my experience people watching, I have found that you can sometimes predict what a person's personality is like based upon their facial structure and the shape of their head. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Do you think this has anything to do with MBTI types? Do similar types have similar shaped heads?

    I don't know if you seriously believe this, but, in any case, it reminds me of phrenology. Also, the visual identifaction typing method used by some socionics geeks, who have no doubt that they can always or nearly always accurately gauge a person’s type by their looks/expression. I browsed one of their photo gallerys of celebrity types once, and was not very impressed. I thought a fair number of the typings were way off the mark, and would expect similar inaccuracy from any method of visual i.d. for mbti types.

    I prefer to use my nose to sniff out their type.


    ENTP's can be smelly, to say the least.

    True. A friend once left a glass of milk in my window sill. Didn't discover it for awhile. Bastard

    His house was worse.

    Heads no, but there are some similarities in mannerisms and facial expressions in people of same type. There is something called visual identification in socionics that looks into this topic, of how appearance is connected to type.
