    Could have some impact, I suppose, but it seems doubtful. The more I look around, the more I think that we're born with our type - development just affects the maturity/immaturity of our certain functions, and maybe the order to some extent. An extremely insecure ENFP may end up shy because of whatever, but that doesn't make them any less of a theoretical ENFP.

    But I do think our type affects how we make ourselves look! I read somewhere that when a Sexual 3w2 is unhealthy, they may retreat and ugly-fy themselves to sort of weed out who actually likes them for them, or who likes them for how to present themselves. I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw myself in that one.

    This is quite interesting...does it have to do with SX first or the 3 influence? Because I'm a Sexual 4w3 and if I go into a retreat mode (because of depression or something like that) I will strip down and "uglify" myself to get in touch with my "true self" (I guess that's the 4 right there) so that I'm not living to impress others...and so it protects me from having to connect with others, as well.

    I've also had jobs where my appearance was an important aspect of the job, and the act of stripping myself down to being more "ugly" or plain is a way of placing extreme value on my inner mental/emotional self for balance.

    It's usually a sign of depression, in my case, though.

    Let me give an example:
    Would a physically attractive young girl care more about what is outward and perceptible by the senses and tend to reach out for the S? And since her beauty draws people to her easily, she wouldn't care as much about the complex labyrinths of human interactions? She would embrace the playful SP character and care about fun more than anything?

    I know it sounds like a dumb generalisation and it is, but would it have some influence on us? I feel I have observed real life manifestations of this.
    Interesting question. I think that in the absence of trauma/abuse or severe disfigurement, your cognitive preference will not change with environmental circumstance (I'm assuming that preference is something you're born with). For your example, let's say the physically attractive young girl was a stereotypical, INTP. That would make her less likely to notice how hot she is, less likely to value it, and less likely to notice or care how people react to it. One's physical appearance is just not influential enough to overcome one's innate preference.

    Maybe it's because I look like my mom...she's an ESFP.


    Of course, these people haven't seen me leave the house on a bad day looking like cat hoarding bag lady, either.
