This is the summary of a sociobiological theory of motivation, behavior, and satisfaction I created, with a little help from a friend (Tangerine on my message board, for the record). I first determined that type is likely an epigenetically controlled system of polymorphism, functioning on the group level (quite similar to ant polymorphism). That came about because I and others (Socionics) have noticed that people of X type tend to possess uncanny physical similarity to go along with behavioral similarity.

Then, I analyzed the behavior of content and discontent individuals of each type, and made the assumption that the content individuals were performing their "task," biologically speaking. These tasks follow, and I propose that they are the means by which individuals acquire maximum "social satisfaction" in life, which may be the most important variety of satisfaction. People must both perform their tasks, and be appreciated for that.

INTP: Creation/provision of very unique logical ideas
ENTP: Creation/provision of logical ideas which are likely to be employed
INFP: Embodiment of moral "nobility"
ENFP: Advisement on meaning and purpose

ISTP: Intensive real-world problem solving
ESTP: Extensive real-world problem solving
ISFP: Creation/provision of art of any variety
ESFP: Bringing of joy

INTJ: Task supremacy based on present group desires
ENTJ: Command with respect to achievement of goals
ISTJ: Reliable task completion based on present group desires
ESTJ: Rule construction and implementation

INFJ: Intensive distress alleviation, direct and indirect
ENFJ: Extensive distress alleviation, direct and indirect
ISFJ: Resource management/provision, both concrete and abstract
ESFJ: Embodiment and active transfer of cultural norms

...And the (more tentative) effects of each type's activities, with respect to group-adaptivity:

INTP: Availability of alternative solutions
ENTP: Indirect advancement of efficiency in general
INFP: Group cohesion, stability, and extension
ENFP: Group cohesion, stability, and extension

ISTP: Direct advancement of group success
ESTP: Direct advancement of group success
ISFP: Group cohesion, stability, and extension
ESFP: Group cohesion, stability, and extension

INTJ: Increase of group efficiency
ENTJ: Indirect advancement of group success
ISTJ: Increase of group efficiency
ESTJ: Group cohesion, stability, and efficiency

INFJ: Group cohesion, primarily, also stability and extension
ENFJ: Group cohesion, primarily, also stability and extension
ISFJ: Group stability, primarily, also cohesion and extension
ESFJ: Group stability, primarily, also cohesion and extension

I like the theory and I have a few questions:

Are you saying that people of each type have a common physical appearance?

What makes the content individuals content? Is it attractiveness or success?

What makes the individuals content, most technically speaking (According to a universal theory of mine), is being seen as they see themselves, and simultaneously admired. With type under consideration, people are essentially satisfied for being seen as the "ideals" of their types, and admired for that.

It's not attractiveness by any means, nor is it necessarily success in general.

Add: Oh, and yes, people of X type tend to have common physical characteristics. I wasn't the first to notice this, but I have noticed it, and now use it as a typing tool. It's a principal reason I strongly believe type is a biological system.
