I have found the values-centered (principle-centered) temperaments, from the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, to be especially interesting. I believe these values-centered temperaments can be observed and gleaned from people's appearances. I won't go into details for each one (though might provide the information from the tables found in the book, at a later time), as that can be found online and in the book. The values-centered temperaments can be used to find what someone's interests are, and explain why they do the things they do. The values-centers are listed as follows:

Spouse-centered
Family-centered
Career or job-centered
Money-centered
Possessions-centered
Church or organization-centered
Friend-centered
Enemy-centered
Pleasure-centered
Self-centered
Principles-centered

While principles-centered might not appear to fit in with the rest, certain people do live by principles, which often comes from society, books, and family (this appears to be especially the case for ISTJ).

Where can I find more information? Since you say it can be found online.

I know I'm likely somewhere between pleasure-centered and principles-centered, just because I'm constantly going after either lifestyle. And sometimes I fuck up one in pursuit of the other. ISFP.

Well two guide me: My kids (so family) & pleasure seeking
I want to attain the best for my kids and I like to try and do what allows me more play hard time

Which also means: Work Hard
But Work Hard (Career & Job) is driven by what I want to provide for my children as well as sustaining play hard time too.

I am however EXTREMELY principled in the sense that if I find something I am not okay with I will be very vocal in combating it. The reason that is being brought up is because while I am extremely work driven I do not overlap my principles for achievement. I fight very fair and out in the open, I take my shots out in the open and I shoot someone where they can see. The only time I fight like dirty is if the opposing person has taken on the same tactic but even then I really take on a far more sanctimonious and self righteous approach. It’s the easiest stance if I keep my hands clean and let fuck faces expose themselves. I have been known to survive through some serious bullshit or controversy in my personal life and professional life and come out with people making me look better just by themselves revealing how absolutely insane or dirty they are. As I said I will openly confront the people and call out this sort of behavior and conduct as well as be very clear if I am unhappy with anyone’s misconduct.

NO I am not enemy driven or centered, but I sure do attract the wrath of those kinds of people who are enemy driven. It’s simple I am better. No not better than everyone. But definitely better than people driven by their own jealousy or spineless approach. So hence I really really piss them off. They manage to take out a lotta people. I am not one of them. While I have scathed the line with letting them troll me just enough (so I can covert troll them). Make no mistake I am the mole of the work place. A very very successful mole (the women, it’s always been women only one guy did this conduct) the women who have taken on this route live to wonder what in the fuck just hit them. They forget I am driven by more so there for I will always be better than them at that game. I swear I may sound condescending or pompous don’t care. The kinda women who engage in illegal warfair or friendly fire shifting from the back are so unprepared always. The amusing part is they do not realize I am really a deal maker and like to make friends and network not enemies.

And it is in the context of dealing with any sort of failing hierarchy (not successful ones) and people who are enemy centered I am extremely extremely resilient and also VERY principled. I will basically take the rule book of either and turn the table right back but I keep my nose clean enough in the process and build up enough of a fucken army and friends in solid places. I always refuse to go to some of the lows enemy driven people go. It’s honestly like a cave man building their first fire against a dragon they thought was really a teddy bear.

I actually have a woman and her daughter who got fired from my workplaces still behind the scenes of quite a lot of Insane shit. This woman tried to frame and implicate me in several issues. She however did not realize any common sense when she started to rock the boat on who was who or what and barked up the wrong tree to my allies. When she did not get the results she liked she retaliated by actually staging her own demise. When i was asked to come in and be sheriff and play cowgirl and clean up a mess this bitch made she went as far as to completely tear down an already existing office structure at a site. She got fired because she was so lead by her jealousy she ranted to every employee in the region with pride bragging about what she was doing to sabotage me. So several people reported her. Guess what I was not even one of them. Didn’t have to. Why did she act this insane because she started to realize how much she had underestimated my list of contacts and associates, and she realized how much poor conduct I had been witness to. Guess what I actually tried to use my task in auditing her to help her. She was in fear however to cover her own tracks and realized just how bad she had exposed herself. This lady is still behind some weird shit happening in our work place and she was already fired for misconduct. It’s some weirdo weirdo shit.

The reason she is so obsessed with me, I squashed her fair and square and was hiding right in plain sight.

What exactly do you mean by "appearance"? Physical features, expressions, clothing and grooming?

At first I assumed that you meant physical features, which, given that these values are so culturally specific, seems odd.

I didn't vote. I cannot relate to any of these. I would say that I'm freedom-centered.

I'm most likely self-centered.

Maybe pleasure-centered as a second.

I would like to take a test or read more about it without buying the book, though.

It actually manifests physically in how a person looks as well. I will need to do a diagram showing cartoons, and how they relate to the value temperaments. For starting examples, the character-drawing style in Ikkyu-san is of the Self-centered temperament, while that of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is of the Spouse-centered temperament. For South Park and Dragon Ball Z, they are of the Pleasure-oriented temperament. Also, the character-drawing style for Case Closed or Detective Conan is of the Family-centered temperament.

I feel like Dragon Ball Z's art style might actually lean more on the side of career-centered or job-centered Values-Centered Temperament

Here is an update on the examples for Values Temperament, using more representative anime for Family-focused, Possessions-focused, and Enemy-focused:
