    Default do you LOVE body language?

    im as pure N as one could get, but i find body language endlessly fascinating way of communication(esp in giving depth), a boost in charm and personality by developing it constantly forward and never forgetting how huge amount of positive influence it truly provides to those who understand it.

    in my culture, body language is generally deprived, not surprising of such a dark population as finnish are.
    but i wont hold myself from waving my hands, body, face, around however feels best!
    and i can see the huge positive impact it has on the moods of others.

    also not to mention the key it has to seeing deep into others very easily.

    your turn!

    I wouldn't say I love it as much as I find it realky funny. Intresting how someone can be saying/thinking something so consciously but their body language is not in accord.

    it's fascinating! almost as fascinating as you thinking it's fascinating.

    Referring to the word 'but' in your sentence, being N has nothing to do with being unresponsive to body language.

    INTJs are given the stereotypical description of being blind to body language. From what I have noticed this is incorrect. They are quite good at identifying and interpreting body language. They might not be very reactive to them.

    ExTJs suck at being responsive and interpreting them though. That should be noted. Especially ENTJs. And IxTPs also might suffer from the lack of being responsive to them. INTPs the most.

    Anyway I love it. Love getting better and better at it. The older I get the better I seem to get at it.

    Ah, that could be their Se.

    This would also explain why xSTPs aren't very good at understanding certain body language displays than some other displays.

    I got 20 out of 20 because I knew exactly what to look for. Not bad for an ESTJ, if I do say so myself.

    I enjoy acting so I pay close attention to all body language. I have to rehearse all my shows exactly as the character so body language is an important, and often the most difficult, part of it.

    Thank you for that link. I learned quite a lot in from the advice which was given after the test was completed.

    I got 17 out of 20.

    I find body language fascinating and enjoy watching people converse. I pick up the minute bodily movements easily when talking to others so i can visually see when someone is deceiving me or themselves. Although i struggle when emotionally involved with someone.

    I liked watching the programme Lie To me as i was learning new skills all the time. That would be an awesome role to get into.

    Ouch i only got 13 out of 20 on the test .. Note to self, watch the eyes crease.
