    INFJ - The Protectors

    This is one of the earliest threads, possibly the earliest on record, that I created not long after joining this forum. I still remember this, and have to remark on how much my typing has improved over the past four years. This is also helped by remarkable discussions, as well as real-life interactions that have fostered this development.

    I hope others can learn to type by looking as well, by drawing relationships or similarities between members of a personality type, and not base it on a predetermined dogma about how everyone of a personality is supposed to behave. If music connects humanity, then the following threads, which I have made to help remember certain INFJ singers or musicians, as well as a tool to help people identify others through type, might assist those who hope to develop their own method of personality typing on the fly:

    INTJ, INFJ singers

    Through experience in observing people, it appears that the vast majority of the population are intuitive dominants (ENTP, ENFP, INTJ, and INFJ), with ENTP and INFJ being rarer than INTJ and ENFP. ENFJ, ESFJ, ESTJ, ENTJ, ESTP, ESFP, ISFJ, and ISTJ, as well as ISTP, ISFP, INFP are relatively rare as well. INTP is also not as common as INTJ. It also appears that an INTJ might not recognize another INTJ, or an ENFP might not recognize another ENFP. This is attributed to variants in a personality type. You can check the following thread for more details, about the origins of those variations:

    If morphic resonance is of any help, than the development of recognition for members of the same personality type might be achieved sooner than expected, especially among the INFJ community, of which I am a member. You can check out my INTJ guesses in the INTJ Confirmed and Guessed thread:

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I like your threads Sparky. :) always got something interesting.

    as for this threads original question, MAYBE from facial expressions and body language. But I really doubt there is any correlation for type and, say, distance between eyes, or width of nose, ect.

    Hi Metal Fish, thank you for supporting. Facial expressions and body language are definitely important, though I also find facial proportions (the locations of nose, lips or eyes relative to the rest of the face) can also help with typing.

    Although this isn't always accurate, you can get a good sense by the way they carry themselves, more often than not too the appearance of face can tell you a thing or too. A lot of the time if they have a heart shaped face, it means there an NF more often than not, Heads that are more rounded they are usually some type of an S and square type faces are NTs. Again these are generalizations and not always true.

    You mean mannerisms? I've noticed these sometimes and they've helped me crystalize a decision about somebody. It's not an important factor, but it sometimes helps. It's a part of somebody's vibe. I usually only notice it once I'm actively deciding between two or three types, as a supplement to analysis. It's possible that sensors would be better than I at using mannerisms to type people, since they'd be more aware of those details.

    I wouldn't ever use it to type strangers, because somebody using a particular tone for one sentece, or sitting in a particular way one time, means nothing. A ESFJ having a bad day could move like a INTJ, a INTP on drugs might more resemble a ESFP. If a ISFP at the table near me was discussing an important business deal on the phone, she might sound more like a ESTJ. Or whatever.

    If you mean just physical features and pictures/visual typing, then hell to the no. That's bullcrap.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    i remember seeing a while back a series of videos matching micro-expressions/body language to types.
    I wasn't sure if it was bogus but it seemed to be an intriguing and more promising idea than just "physiognomy"

    thought about it recently while watching infj, infp videos on youtube... it might be confirmation bias, but i really did notice a difference in the steadiness/intensity of the gaze of an infj vs the more wandering, gentle-eyed look of the infp. more info needed.

    I find it very strange that there has not been more studies and research done, linking personality types with looks and movement patterns. There is more research from Socionics, though I find the MBTI system very adequate to make speed typing possible.

    A certain amount of creativity and imagination is needed when typing from photographs or statues, and that is you have to mentally picture how the person moves when talking. This is done in terms of his facial expressions according to structure, as well as proportions. It is similar to scientists guessing how dinosaurs might have walked or ran, according to their skeletal structures, and matching those with the skeletons of modern birds or reptiles.

    Hey guys, does anybody know of further research into visual typing for MBTI, like with Socionics? Specifically, I would like to see further research done on the INFJ personality type. if morphic resonance is correct, then other INFJ would soon be aware of personality types, like myself. What are your thoughts or opinions? Thank you.

    That would also depend on your enneagram. For instance, I've typed someone as an enneagram 5 on a forum for fun. He was INTP 8. The 5 corresponded to the INTP, however. You could type a random dude as ESTP but he turns out to be a INFJ with a strong 8 fix! I believe that it would be extremely difficult to hit bulls-eye each time with your calculations, even if you know the person extremely well. But it's possible after much practice and feedback to hit within a range or "rightness."

    @Sparky
    I currently identify as an INTP 8. This wasn't me, by any chance was it? Because I know a user by the name of @Mason117 who identifies as an INTP 8w7.
