Yeah...do you think people can be accurately typed going only on a picture of them smiling?
Well, technically, yes. But, it would be little more than a lucky educated guess based on statistics (women more likely to be F, rare vs common types, etc.) plus how they appear. Smiles and body language can be really telling. E or I might be easiest to discern, then T or F especially if they are in a group...
So, in a sense, I think you can get close, but generalizations are just that, you can't expect to always get it right.
Just take a stock photo of a random person.
Most of us would guess ESFP, right?
Hmm. Can you see the N in my profile picture? What would you type me going on that picture if you didnt know my type?Not much. I would go either way. Her expression just reminds me of a Heather Locklear ESFP-type. When I imagine the ENFP expression, I think of it as more toned-down or demure.
To be honest, I don't know, since I already have that bias. But, you appear really warm and welcoming. I'd guess ExFx, at least.Hmm. Can you see the N in my profile picture? What would you type me going on that picture if you didnt know my type?
I clicked on your profile before I did anything else today, because I saw that you recently viewed my profile.Hmm. Can you see the N in my profile picture? What would you type me going on that picture if you didnt know my type?
Before you brushed your teeth even? :wink:I clicked on your profile before I did anything else today, because I saw that you recently viewed my profile.
I thought ENxP almost instantly, and then looked over and saw ENFP which is awesome, because I love ENFPs.
I have to admit, when browsing online personal ads, I do perform a preliminary "typing" based on the pictures provided, and people do get screened out from that initial typing, I then read profiles, which often screen out/in people that I was iffy about based on pictures alone. (I am not screening based only on type, but that is what is applicable to this thread).
I know I am looking for an NF to have a relationship with (with a strong lean towards NFP), or a few other types based on certain other qualities. I am 29 and I have been in 2 long term relationships that didn't work out... I am ok with my screening methods... I am looking for certain things that I think will be compatable with my outlook on life, and I am not going to be randomly messaging people just because their name is on a dating site.
Ok, well.. my mom decided she didn'twant to go be around people... (She is an INFJ and my dad passed away two weeks ago, so she has been hiding in her introvert shell)... so it turns out that I can answer...can... but not at this very moment... taking my mom out to play some Canasta...
Darn straight... I saw "cute ENFP viewed your profile" and had to check AT THAT VERY MOMENT!!! (and yes, I think you are VERY attractive in your pic)...Before you brushed your teeth even? :wink:
Hmmm... this is a bit harder to describe... a lot of it is from 11 years dealing with type and recognizing commonalities in facial features...Can you explain why you thought ENxP almost instantly?
