caustic, boring, the planned life.
i usually can pick up on gammas because they seem incredibly unhappy.
I tend to not regard Socionics during interpersonal contact. It's usually afterward that I reflect on the experience and try to find a type for someone.
As far as visual recognition goes, I don't think there is an across-the-board look that all Gammas share. ISFjs can appear pissed off or serious; ENTjs can seem nervous or twitchy; INTps often look half-baked and defensive at the same time; ESFps seem to look confused a lot and often seem to radiate kinetic energy.
The one exception is when I meet male ENTjs (the only female ENTj I know is Joy). There's something about the chemistry that I notice right away; a quiet, almost gentle kind of atmosphere that takes place wherein both of us seem to automatically dock onto the same wavelength and can talk comfortably about anything. There's sort of a mutually understood sense of, "I effortlessly get along with you, and that doesn't happen too often."
One other thing I notice with Gammas is that the females, for some odd reason, seem more fiery than the males a lot of the time. I don't know how well this holds true, but it's been my experience with people I've identified as Gamma.
i flip back and forth between being laid back and fiery...it very much depends on the types i'm around.
in theory i should act like myself at all times, and not care about others. however when there is someone around that is blatantly scoffing at me and giving me a hard time, i just plain don't want to deal with them. first...i'll confront them directly and try to get them to say exactly what it is im doing that is bothering them, if that fails than...depending on the situation...i remove myself or become generally annoyed because i cannot remove myself and just wait it out.
i don't like dealing with other peoples problems.
this is pretty irrelevant but i felt like saying it anyway

The two LIE female anime characters that stand out in my mind are certainly pretty fiery (Lina Inverse and Nami).
Seriously though, I think that LIE females are more fiery (but I'm not talking about being ill-tempered) than LIE males, but I'm not sure about the rest of the quadra. I'm basing this on only a handful of LIE's though.

Like discojoe, socionics doesn't come into play when I'm interacting with an actual person. However, when I'm sitting around not doing anything, I usually like to sit back and observe others interacting with each other and compare my observations with what socionics predicts.
As for being fiery, I'm usually a pretty calm person until I perceive a malicious violation of one of my values with malicious being the keyword here.

Some and role lovin too. () I too...
SEEs never look unhappy to me. ???
LIEs I don't know any
ILIs lol, yeah they are definitely the most morose looking of the bunch, but it's hilarious. I knew this ILI guy who honestly looked robotic. He stood in a very strange way, with his arms down by his sides, but his hands were like lifted up, so that the backs were parallel to the ground. Get it? What an odd guy.
ESI's have a bit of an unhappy-dissatisfied face, especially the females, but usually it's only when they're not talking with you, the expressions changes immediately when they start interacting.
I haven't noticed LIEs, SEEs or ILIs displaying the same type of look, except of course when they're actually feeling like shit.

Anyway I'm skeptical about using fixed facial features to type people. FWIW, I must say that at least two other ISFjs I knew well enough IRL have the same kind of facial structure as Diane Sawyer; on the other hand, I also know at least two other ISFjs (which might be sensory subtype, FWIW) who have a round facial structure. And then we have Diana, who has a different look altogether.
My point is that, at least to me, if I were to take the evidence at face value, I'd be seeing at least 4 different "kinds" of female ISFj faces, and that begins to dilute the value of such correlations.
