    Default relation of face shape and personality

    I am not too keen on having my photo up. I am one of those that will put it up, and come back and take it back down. For some reason it always feels kind of violating..(???).
    Anyhow, there is an aspect to personalities I have been studying that just facinates the hell out of me. I wanted to post this and thought it would be a fun thread to see what people thought...and if it is considered a match.

    Robesp'er, LEAHS

    I am INTJ (INTP within a few points)





    Let's see you!

    Holy crap. You're really beautiful! I especially love your hair. It flows very nicely.

    But.. *ahem* back to topic.

    INFJ, also relating strongly to in order from most to least, INFP, INTJ and ENFJ.

    And.. I don't quite understand what ideas the link is presenting.

    Socionics. The best theory to suggest that type is innate.

    Anyway, I'm tired of digging through my photos, but I have several of them if you just fish through the Picture Time threads.

    I'm an ENTp (ILE-Ti) according to Socionics.

    Wolfmaiden is a little hard to type because her eyes are closed, but for some reason, she strikes me as a Socionics ENFp in her photo inside her profile.

    Keep in mind, I'm not at all good at this.

    An interesting note in Socionics is that N's tend to have a more triangular-shaped face while S's are more square.

    Well this is from several yrs ago but it's one of the few closeups I have of me (I'm the blonde by the way).

    The REAL test for you face-shape socionics experts though will be to guess the mbti type of the other girl!!!

    Wolfmaiden, thank you...you are very, very sweet.

    As Uber said, it is a theory that personality and face shape reflect one another. If you go to the link, and then click in the link under the type it will pull a sketch of a face up. I pulled up the INFJ, and it does indeed look similar to your face shape. You have a very Lisa Marie Presley look to the shape of your face to me (very pretty BTW...). I am not sure, is this a heart-shaped face? Sort of oval, although more heart shaped.

    does it make sense now?

    Hmm.. I guess all the links and things make it odd for me. I can't decipher the description it's trying to make.. but I see the face picture now. Haha.

    And I always considered my face shape very round. The pic is a little decieving since my hair is long and the earrings are dangly. It does draw my face out a little more. I usually do that intentionally so I don't feel so chubby. -^^-

    perhaps this one is a little more accurate.

    Dissonance... You look very much like a male INFJ friend I have!!! Very interesting indeed.

    Cascade.. I don't even know the first thing about socionics, but I'm gonna say ISTP.

    She's definitely ENxJ! I actually suspect she's an ENfJ, although about the time this picture was taken, she took the humanmetrics test (which I personally think is crap - at least with how I tend to test!! ;-), and tested out as ENTJ. But over the years I've gotten to know her, and ENTJ seems rather a stretch.

    Ok, in my opinion this is right up there with the water divining and handwriting analysis. Physiognomy might have been all the rage in the mid 1800's but seriously, there's a good reason for it being practically dead now. Even in socionics only a branch of it even believes in this.

    I guess this isn't really contributing but gah, can't help it. Why wouldn't the VAST amount of proof that led to the complete dismissal of phrenology, showing that personality traits can't possibly shape the skull, apply to this as well?

    Some narrow-minded people say that V.I. cannot be possible because looks are genetic. It is partially true (not that V.I. is impossible but that looks are genetic). However, ask two artists to paint the same portrait with the same palette. Even if the portraits end up looking identical, upon closer examination you should be able to notice different brush strokes, different techniques or different style. In V.I. one does not look at what is obvious: "Oh look, he has got no chin and she has got an upturned nose!" In V.I. one looks past the obvious. Once you are able to recognise what to look for then the rest becomes rather rudimentary. Some people are naturally observant and can grasp the essence of V.I. fairly quickly, some need more time and some are pretty useless.
    Way to make personal attacks at people who don't believe in this, they have to be narrow-minded right. If the experts do infact get it right more than they miss, how come it hasn't created a tiny scientific revolution? Might be due to the same reasons why people who claim to be able to do paranormal things never actually do it in a controlled experiment setting. You don't even need to factor in the accuracy or validity of the actual typing in the first place, if you could just prove a correlation between facial features and how people score on the tests that would certainly constitute a breakthrough.

    This directly contrasts the bolded part in the first quote.

    /rant, don't actually mean to offend/provoke anyone.
