This is a discussion on Photos of the INTJs **Stay on topic** within the INTJ Forum - The Scientists forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by Thorgar Abraxas, I don't really believe in typing by photo, but one look at you and I ...
I don't like crossing my arms because it feels restricting. With my hands on my hips, I feel more free and relaxed. I only cross my arms usually whenever I'm in tight quarters, like on a crowded bus or tram or something like that. I don't like my hands in my pockets either. Instead, I hook my thumbs on them. I like my personal space, but I guess I don't subconsciously reduce it.
I do both and also put my hands in my pockets. When I read about the whole aggressive woman versus the ready for action man I just thought yep....that's another man thing I do rather than aggressive. The gender thing just cuts across the board for pretty much everything being INTJ or the theories aren't totally correct. So I'm not off topic here is a photo from the other thread I've previously posted in.
Photos, I gotta thank'em all ^^
I read the photo of Abraxas with hands on hips as "I am uncomfortable but do not want to show it, what is the correct posture for looking relaxed?" Just the usual mimicry. And the second photo with the "in control stare"- well of course. Taking a picture of one's self while on one's own turf would likely lend a sense of control to the situation.
Me, looking halfway decent.
I've noticed a trend in this thread.
INTJs tend to look fairly attractive. At least, from what I am seeing here.
Maybe that's another factor in our rarity.
