    I have seen this on here before, but I'm waiting for them to do more types.

    Still not sure what I think of it yet. After all for it to work you have to take their body behaviour interpretations as being correct.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    The FiNe one is interesting. I can certainly relate to looking depressed/miserable/uncomfortable when I'm perfectly fine. My gaze is usually soft, yet somewhat penetrative, and I tend to look 'through' objects which is indicative of SeNi according to this.

    A few of the mistypes make me wary of really trusting this method though.

    Vincent Kartheiser is an INTJ according to this typing method:

    I think an ENFP one would be like trying to capture a hummingbird flying. All the hand gestures and eyes everywhere but the actual object... the change of topics midsentence...

    Been watching their videos for a while now, but I still don't know how accurate they actually are. Obviously they're picking up some patterns, but are they the right ones, and are they being interpreted correctly? Can functions even be determined by facial cues (I think it's certainly plausible, but who knows)?

    Maybe you'll find this interesting, it's not the official NeFi one, but videos of people they've typed as such that have prominent expressions for the type.

    I checked them out when they were starting. I didnt take it too seriously but thought that they might have something going on there, but then i noticed them making some amateur mistakes and it started looking more and more like they dont really know much about what they are talking about. I think this should be posted on the "how not to do typology" topic(if it already havent been).

    I think there's something to it, but as you say, are they doing it right? According to this I definitely-

    -use Fe and Ti (like no question here).

    -blink a lot (which they say is Si. But I live in a sunny and dry climate...?) and I think I have the naive Ne doe eyes. (Maybe big doe eyes get drier more easily?) But I don't exactly watch myself talk so it's hard to say. (I definitely do the Ni-zone out, too, though.)

    I think they'd type me as an Ti-Ne, that's what I look the most like of their examples. But maybe Ni-Fe.

    I would say this is still in the definite research/development phase and if I were them I think I wouldn't put my claims out there as if they were gospel quite so much. I love the idea, though, because I think our expressions and way of talking tell a lot- usually more than words.

    @Stansmith, I will say every INFP I have known talks like the Fi-Ne example. They got that one down, for sure.

    I'm trying to pay attention now to whether my eyes lead my head (perception over judging) or my head leads my eyes (judging over perception), ha. (Yes, I am totally geeking out on this. Some fascinating shit.)

    Yeah, clearly there's something there. Whether it's related remains unanswered.

    -blink a lot (which they say is Si. But I live in a sunny and dry climate...?) and I think I have the naive Ne doe eyes. (Maybe big doe eyes get drier more easily?) But I don't exactly watch myself talk so it's hard to say. (I definitely do the Ni-zone out, too, though.)
    All Ne/Si users supposedly blink a lot, but Si > Ne usually has a 'concentrated scowl' look. I thought I did Ni-zone outs too (I posted on the forum and was told my P functions were clearly Ne/Si) but apparently it was Si (both 'Pi drifts' can look very similar).

    I think they'd type me as an Ti-Ne, that's what I look the most like of their examples. But maybe Ni-Fe.
    Have you thought about posting a vid on their forum so they can type you?

    I'm pretty sure they are writing a book on it. I do also enjoy the idea, so it'd be good if it was true. It'd take Jungian typology further than being a mere pseudo science too.
