    I think on video my mannerisms seem more INFP like, according to descriptions I've seen and other INFP videos. The eyes dart around a bit, expressive, not focused on the object. Voice when talking about feelings tends to be softer, which is more Fi-like. But when it comes to talking about thoughts, it gets more terse and open. Generally I seem pretty laid-back in videos, which doesn't negate the Ni-Ti description though.

    Thank you, Fia. That means much coming from you [meaning I really respect your opinion a lot]. I had no doubt that you were INFJ after I watched your video.

    @VasilisaI really liked your answers! Thank you for sharing and yes, I do believe you are INFJ.

I could feel that you were thinking about specific individuals each at a time. You had no hand gestures when talking until you talked about people, and then they were present during most of that which felt like you were more engaged in the external world.

    There are a lot of distanced thought processes when thinking about universal systems. I do notice that Ni-Ti vs Fe-Se strong contrast in communication, although with your video I felt there was a topical aspect to it whereas in mine it seemed more of a parallel contrast of content vs. mannerism throughout.

    I also felt a certain type of innocence from you at the very beginning when talking about what makes you angry. I felt a distinct distance between you and cruelty which could be because you have been able to keep it primarily theoretical and universalized in conception and reaction, or there could be another reason. Does that make sense? I've sometimes felt that innocence in your posts. It makes me feel like there is a certain distilled purity to your type. I don't know if you have ever noticed a certain grittiness, rawness, even earthiness in the posts by cafe, Tiltyred or myself. It is interesting because I notice similarity of thought processes, but a difference in terms of felt experience. I hope I am expressing myself correctly and not offensively because it is a rather intangible, inexplicable feeling that could mean a range of things. It is almost like there is an idealized aspect to how you experience and express type.
    Hi fia, thanks for your response. I have noticed the earthiness in the posts of the users you mentioned. Maybe it comes from more self assuredness on their parts. I don't deny in myself grit, and especially regarding cruelty, I have made it a point to learn about topics of cruelty and human evil in the world. I see in myself a darkside, too, which surely everyone possesses, but mine seems to play out in that stereotypical INFJ way of making myself vital to someone and then pulling away and leaving them bereft. This may sound like a humblebrag, but I don't mean it that way, I sincerely struggle with causing hurt in this way. What makes me angry is my problem dealing with this. Also, I was going through a strong period of anxiety and thats part of what I was mentioning about different theories about why I'm not outwardly angry, and I think its related to anger redirected and turned inward and manifesting as anxiety and self-loathing. But a lot of it, I think has to do with me viewing many videos where INFXs described in detail the injustices that anger them, those resonated, but I didn't want to be redundant. Its very enneagram four, I think ;) But I do understand what you are getting at, that there are different qualities of processing preferences, and maybe mine across a bit more idealized or floaty. I also wonder what part being a social first variant plays. Anyway, back to mannerisms, I was wondering if my eyes darting around or lack of the supposed "Ni-gaze" that I hear so much about, or even anything else made anybody think I stood apart from other INFJ or the INFP video submissions. In this thread I was typed as a definite ESFJ (the poster later edited his posts to make the pronouncements softer) and @cascadeco was typed as an ENFP. Thanks again for taking the time to watch and comment. I still don't know if I can really identify any INF mannerisms yet, but I look forward to more data. I'm not sure why, but I cannot view your videos, I just see a broken image icon :(

    @Vasilisa, I'll try to figure out the problem with my links. I also have them linked in my blog. They are at photobucket instead of YouTube so maybe only people with accounts can see them?

    I'm glad you clarified about the anger response and what I'm saying is hard to put into words. I have noticed that sometimes posters of iNtuitive types that have lived through poverty, abuse, or wars can have a different feel because they have had to look the question of survival in the eye. Also age can influence style. I think it could be interesting for you to see my vid clips. My eyes actually move very much like yours although I use fewer hand gestures but more head movement. I'll be back for more comments...

    I also disagree with Ni stare. Eye movement to the edges of the eyes shows internal mental processing which is indicative of abstract thinking and can show what part of the brain is being used.

    Edit:

    This part just now struck me, and I would have to say that the ESFJ typing for you and the ENFP typing for cascedeco are pretty far from accurate. I'm a bit unconvinced that typings can be accurate based on mannerisms because it is a complex layering of influences from inside and outside that create these. Just looking at feral children and how exactly they copies animals shows that are manners are far more influenced externally than intrinsically. Place a child to be raised by dogs and her every movement and manner resembles a dog. Place a puppy with humans and its mannerisms are still like a dog, almost entirely.

    Here's the video I made for the Cognitive Type Forum to type me with. Indecently, I find the idea of cognitive functions linked to expressions, mannerisms and body movements fascinating, as it makes sense to me. We'll see how far it gets. For the record, I identify with NiFe, but I've been told NiTe is possible too, it's up in the air at this point. Most likely, I'll be taking this down soon.. Thanks.

    @prplchknz
    I'm thinking INFP and probably a balanced one at that.
