    He is so great (Morrissey). I'm going running to his voice in about... 10 minutes.

    Someone who is incredibly strong, largely built might rouse fear in people although he or she isn't actually a threat. How is he/she going to react to people's reaction? Maybe he or she will get tired of proving he/she isn't a bully and become withdrawn or maybe he/she will persevere in her/his efforts and act friendly, entertaining try to look approachable.
    I know it's a kind of far fetched.
    I wouldn't dare say it "defines" character traits but there might be a little something to it after all.
    Personality is largely inherent, and they know this because of twin studies. Not to burst your theory bubble. *ducks*

    'INFJs have a very characteristic dispassionate facial expression. This is often reminiscent of the depiction of saints and martyrs from early Christian icons. Their faces convey the feeling that their soul is suffering even when it is not. INFjs faces are often perfect ovals but can be rectangular in shape as well. Their noses are usually straight and slightly elongated, but not prominent.

    INFjs do not show intense positive emotions, instead they simply smile. All their facial expressions openly reproach nefarious happenings. The same can be noticed in their intonation. In many cases INFjs have a slim, ascetic figure. Their movements are often quite harsh although not lacking mobility.
    INFjs with more fuller figures are less mobile and active. When walking, INFjs may keep their feet close and parallel to the ground, maintaining a short distance between each step.'

    I did not realise than type was related to build and facial features etc.
    As a kid I always got called 'moonface'. Do you INFJs out there match this description?
    The bolded is true for me, imo. For the facial description, check my profile pic if you're curious.

    though i agree that there is a correlation between type and genetics (The Edge Effect, Dr. Eric Braverman) i do not think nor agree that it is as easy to define as this.

    I know it sounds crazy, but I really think there's something to the socionics info on common appearances for the various types. I'm a people watcher, and the more people I've observed and secretly typed the more I start to notice certain looks that go with particular types. Two people of the same type may look very differently in some ways -- different ethnicity, hair color, weight, etc. -- but in terms of mannerisms, posture, and body language, they can be extremely similar. I'm not sure that I completely buy the stuff about oval shape versus square shape, etc., but I think that types often have common mannerisms and body language.

    I have become pretty interested in socionics, it's very similar to Myers-Briggs but seems to be coming at it from a different perspective (observation of behavior rather than self-report). I find most of the socionics profile descriptions I've read online to be insightful in a way that some of the typical Myers-Briggs type descriptions aren't.

    I recommend browsing some of the other type descriptions. I won't say they're all 100% accurate, but many of the descriptions seem right to me. I'm curious what you all think:

    Psychological Type profiles
    Socionics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (scroll down to 16 types and then click the links to each type)

    ps: I've gotta agree with all the other INFJs about the pained expression thing. People have often asked me "What's wrong" or why am I sad, and I'm like, "Umm, this is just how I look." lol

    Haha, you should surprise them and be like, "My insides are a torrent of pain and sorrow. The weight of the world is on me for I am stuck between the frying pan and the fire... I can't decide...whether I want chocolate...or vanilla ice cream."

    And that has made all the difference."
