    Default Physical description - INFJ

    I came across this physical description of INFJs which I thought was very interesting.

    '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?

    Are their souls ever not suffering?

    That fits me really well. Except for the walking part. I walk fast with big steps.

    I've often been told that I have deep and lovely eyes, they can prtray an inner innocence but incredible wisdom at the same time...

    I am tall and I think my movements can be harsh at times....

    I believe this is a Socionics description. MBTI doesn't relate type to physical features or physical expressions.

    But the description does fit somewhat. I have an oval shaped face, people who don't know me often think I'm sad or frustrated, and my facial expressions do change involuntarily in relation to my internal reactions to what's going on around me. I do walk with my feet close together and with short steps, looking straight ahead. The only part that doesn't fit is that I will laugh aloud if I'm very amused, if I'm only slightly amused I will smile/grin.

    Not necessary. If you are born with your type, that means it must be passed to you like all your other features by combination of your parents dominant and recessive genes. If type is genetic, then there may be certain outwardly features that are similar between people of the same type by way of those two people possibly having a common ancestor somewhere way back in the family tree.

    That said, I doubt anyone matches their socionics description perfectly.

    But who believes type is genetic and, more importantly, why?
