    Default Physiological type traits

    I ran into this thing in socionics.us site. Do these rules apply to you?

    "Augusta made a number of statements about physiological type traits that have since been more or less debunked, or at least widely ignored because of their consistent inaccuracy:

    * all irrational types are by nature left-handed, while rational types are naturally right-handed
    * extraverts' left eye and left side of the face is more "lively" than the right, and the opposite is true for introverts
    * static types look at things at rest with the left eye and things in motion with the right; the opposite is true for dynamic types
    * she made a ranking of how wide open different types' eyes are; Se and Ne types have the most squinting eyes, while Si and Ni types have the most wide open eyes
    (I may have got some things wrong; I have not reviewed these things for several years)"

    Myself....
    - left-handed <- irrational
    - left side clearly more lively <- extrovert
    - can't say about the static/dynamic thing
    - can't say about squinting really, I do squint but also do keep my eyes open, maybe more open <- more likely Si or Ni

    Hmm..what would I be according to that...
    From the first two: Exxp
    From the third: ???
    From the last: ??? or maybe Si/Ni

    Exxp with Si or Ni? Hmm...there is no such thing? hehe.

    Do they match you?

    Absolutely not.

    I'm not talking about me specifically, I'm just talking about how Augusta was on the crackpipe when she wrote that stuff.

    It boggles the mind how people can believe in such unreliable and illogical forms of VI all the time, and accept them as fact (like the palm thing? wtf?), yet they think my form of VI is crazy when its not only they one backed with a logical explaination, but also is so simple there are hardly any tricks.

    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    I'm right handed.

    It doesn't make sense that if half of the world is illogical that illogicals are basically left handed because the percentage of lefties is much smaller than that.

    I don't think the rest of that follows for me either.

    What about people who are ambidextrous? What about Rationals with 2 left-handed parents? What about people with vision problems?

    Too many extraneous variables to even consider.

    I'l right-handed and rational. That's about it.

    Nicky's made a very good point regarding the percentage of left-handed people.

    Could I take my vote back? I accidentally voted "Completely" without reading the text first. Of course she's wrong if she means all that literally.
