    Default INTJs and shaved heads...

    I was looking at the pictures section, and I've noticed that a lot of the INTJ males who posted their pics of themselves have short haircuts (including myself). I know Socionics.com made mention of this, but I was wondering if there is any reason behind it. Have other people noticed this?

    Tis why I do it, too. I suppose it's an IxTJ trait, since they tend to be more interested in practicality. Although, I would expect an ISTJ to be more concerned about how they come across to others.

    And then, of course, there's Britney Spears, an ISFP?

    DUM E.

    Hubby, ISTJ, does it so he'll appear unapproachable and mean looking as well as because it's just so much easier and more convenient. He deals with the public (or as he puts it "the unwashed masses) and he hates the public.

    I keep my hair short for practicality. Easier to clean, less work to fix, and remains fairly nice all day.

    Same here (Though my hair was longer in the picture than it is usually.)

    I agree with Natruska that she would have to be an E. There are certainly some introverts in Hollywood, but few would survive it imo. The little performing I do is about all I can take. It's an extreme invasion to be stared at on stage and then answering dozens of questions, everyone wanting a little piece of you afterwards. High profile performing would be quite an overload even for the extreme extroverts i would think. It would be kinda like the opposite of solitary confinement - pushing the boundaries of the human psyche.

    My brother-in-law in an INTJ and he keeps his hair very short as well.

    heh, my first thought was to slam this thread for making another TBSG TM, but then realised that I've just had a haircut and asked the guy to cut it as short as possible "because it's annoying to have to deal with it". Perhaps there is something in the idea...

    Of course, that anecdote hardly proves the rule. Also, since IxTJ's actually make up a very small proportion of the population, and shaved/short hair on men is actually quite a common trait (at least over here), I think we can extend the pool slightly.

    Age is also a consideration I would have thought (unless balding men are trying to do a Bobby Charlton they generally admit defeat and have it cut short)

    Yeah, my ISTJ friend keeps his hair short too. "Unwashed masses" my friend would love that phrase; he's not too keen on dealing with the public either.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
