    Sensors are more likely to notice details particularly se types which as a result probably put more effort into their appearance giving the allusion of being better looking

    Long story short: the author of that site is an idiot, and the ideas referenced are incredibly oversimplistic.

    That being said, there are actually some correlations between type and appearance that I have found surprisingly reasonable.

    For example:



    I was surprised to find, upon doing research into somatotype, that the correlations in the above chart actually hold true for many people I know. And I can even see a sort of logic behind it all. And I believe the three somatotype actually make a lot of sense. So...

    Also, in one of my favorite books on the Enneagram, the above somatotyping model (based on the work of Harry Sheldon) is referenced to produce a somatotype for each of the enneatypes, and I've found those correlations to hold surprisingly well as well...

    In addition to that, certain mannerisms and behaviors that manifest in the external world do seem to be correlated to type, so these can have an effect on how types often seem to appear.
    My mother is an ISFJ - she's mesomorphy (muscle) and used to be ectomorphy (skinny)
    My brother is an ISFJ - he's mesomorphy (muscle) and used to be ectomorphy (skinny) except when he had severe illness at which point he became endomorphy (fat) for a period of a few years
    My father is an ENTP - he's mesomorphy (muscle) and used to be ectomorphy (skinny) except a period in his mid-50s when he was endomorphy (fat)
    I'm an ENFP - I am on the slender side of mesomorphy, especially now that I'm in my early 30s, but up until about 32 I was ectomorphy (skinny) no mater how much I ate, and now I would be endomorphy (fat) if I continued to eat that way, so I stopped, and kept up my gym routine.

    In my experience, fat/skinny patterns run in the family. In my family you're skinny no matter what until you're 30, and change drastically after that depending on whether you exercise and how you eat, and also health problems (thyroid etc). That's the way my genes are wired. I'm thin because I work at being thin. If I decide not to for a while, I start gaining weight. Simple..

    I'm Ne-Fi-Te-Si and I put effort into my appearance. As an artist and expressive person I am offended when I wake up in the morning and see a monster in the mirror, so I try to be good to my skin and my hair, and I keep up with my diet & gym routine. I'm not overly fussy about diet or exercising but when I start to get to a place I don't like, I fix it.

    I am not one to put on lots of makeup & get dolled up to go to the grocery store, however. I'll walk aroudn my own neighborhood in my pajamas if I damn well please. But I take care of my hair (whcih is a lot of work given my chronic condition likes to make my hair fall out ) and take care of my skin when I wash in the morning & evening, eat right, pay attention to my body. This way I don't have to DO MUCH to look good. I look good when I just woke up, and look even better if I get dolled up. And - for me this IS work. I am not "naturally blessed" etc I just care about my appearance.

    It was a hypothesis, I don't get where this theory comes from so I was just hmmm maybe.I also said more likely to put effort into their appearance.

    Yeah I mean.. I can see why Se types would end up being muscular etc, because they like to 'do things." In my experience Se types are attuned to such things, and maybe more likely to be into makeup and other details. But I just wanted to point out that I am inf-Si and thus very low Se… and I still care about my appearance. For me it's Fi - I have a strong reaction to beauty and ugliness and my own definition. I don't tend to judge others on external appearance - it's more about how they move, what they do with it, whether they're true to themselves. But for me, being true to myself and expressing my beauty comes along with making my body a canvas for my spirit - and my spirit appreciates beauty. I'll never be beautiful compared to some "standard" but at least my body can express my love for beauty in various forms - I can pose in pictures, videos, wear outfits, and enjoy the process of creating my own art and representing what I find beautiful, as best as I can. My body is canvas for my spirit.

    I'm fi I care nothing about my appearance. Maybe caring about how you look is a nurture/environmental thing and has very very very little to do with functions? One tally against looks convey type

    This is my first post on this forum.

    I think MBTI is way more than just looks but I do think it's very possible to tell a person's MBTI Personality Type just by looking at them once.

    The title of this thread made me feel like crap about my understanding of Typology even though I strongly believe I'm coming to correct conclusions when I'm typing myself and others, but doing it in a very different way than most people who do this stuff.

    A lot of me typing people is influenced by looks and my human connection with other people; however, I'm the person who has a keen eye for spotting deep meanings in things just by looking at them once.

    I read the link that the OP of this thread shared and I agree with everyone about the person thinking how good looking someone is based off their MBTI Personality Type being extremely stupid. I personally believe that I've been attracted to multiple girls of all 16 personality types. Calling certain personality types good looking is biased and subjective if you ask me, and that's not good when it comes to Typology.

    When it comes to Jungian Cognitive Functions, I don't understand what I'm reading because there isn't enough examples out there of each function in action.

    I just trust and respect the information from PersonalityPage.com and YouTube Videos from Neil Ihde when it comes to MBTI, and no other information sources; both information sources are very clear, concise, impartial, and objective.

    If anyone wants to teach me more about Typology than I already know based off this post, go for it but please remember that learning is creating a relationship between what we don't understand and what we do understand.

    Best wishes,
    Chris Ferguson

    Lately, taking care of my appearance for me has just been Se..and goes along with being organized, motivated/proactive, moving forward, having my sh-t together, etc. I'm not sure why I do it anymore besides the fact that it makes me feel good/confident. I like being clean, looking clean, etc. I used to be somewhat sentimental/precious about mu choices, but I don't see the way I dress as anything inherently special in the grand scheme of things. It's whatever. I have nothing to prove.

    My apologies. I would change it but I can't edit it anymore, anyway I meant it as a rant not super seriously or anything, so again sorry if it was unintentionally offensive to anyone.
