    Sensors generally look older than intuitives. That's the general pattern which seems to be accepted by The Russians. It seems to hold relatively true as far as my experience goes, but most people still fall in the "average" range.

    I've noticed it as well. It's because matureness of look and age are not the same thing.

    I generally act older than I am. I look younger than I am. Last night I asked a short girl for directions at a college. She thought I was too young to be in college. I'm a year older than her.

    Some person at the DMV said they thought I was 15.

    Those two look about the same age to me. The first one looks more physically capable, and the second one .. interpersonally aware or something. She looks physically timid to me though, so I don't think she looks more mature.

    She looks more grounded and worldly-wise to me.

    The other one's like "oh we're taking a picture! Shoulders back, tilt head slightly to side, bare teeth, look sweet." Gah.

    Based on my own experience, Intuitives tend to look more mature than Sensors in terms of physical appearance, but it's the opposite for behaviour. I'm not sure if it is because Sensors tend to be more in tune with their environment and know how to present themselves better than Intuitives.

    Yeah I agree. The first one looks more mature imo. The second one is probably more socially or fake mature. But even with pictures, it can be hard to tell.

    That also seems to make sense to me. Like at least I along with other Ns sort of appear mature because we're not so rushed by physical short-term things (else we naturally don't get so involved in the physical/material world we often consider to be fake, and I personally am a lot more spiritually inclined, and adults seem to respect me more than other people my age), but it might not be what other people consider mature, so it depends. In the end my actions and words can look really immature or questionable, especially because I'm not here to prove I care, I do what makes me feel good.

    Lol Hi. Who are you? Are you me?

    In enneagram I relate to both 3 and 5 wing, I think 5 is slightly bigger, so I had to include them both. With subtype I relate to Ni and H subtypes because of gulenko's H description, and because I'm pretty introverted, focus on my dominant more, and have a detracted creative function. Stacking, yeah...basically relate the most to those descriptions too. Surprize surprize!

    People usually think I am 5-8 years older than my age, based on looks and attitude.

    not sure about this. virtually every person who has commented on me, has said that I look young but have a mature presence.

    I think the 1st one is a sensor, and the 2nd one probably isn't.

    I agree. The 1st one actually looks more mature to me.

    My tentative typings based on VI are: SLI for Jenna, and EIE for Michelle.

    Someone said in this board years ago:

    Sensor: adult body, child mind
    Intuitive: adult mind, child body
    ILE "Searcher"
    Socionics: ENTp
    DCNH: Dominant --> perhaps Normalizing
    Enneagram: 7w6 "Enthusiast"
    MBTI: ENTJ "Field Marshall" or ENTP "Inventor"
    Astrological sign: Aquarius

    I have never watched Glee yet, and I don't think I can find any videos on her on youtube etc.

    Nevertheless, based on the photos alone, I would have considered Alpha SF.

    I've always looked young for my age. Less so now, I think my age is finally starting to catch up with me. But I remember when I started college, I looked like I was about 12. Then I remember when I was 25, I was working in a restaurant that accepted workers as young as 15 and the 15 year old looked older than I did. She could not believe I could possibly be 25.

    Looking younger or older than your age is usually clearly heritable. Type's heritability, if it is the case, isn't nearly as easily observable. I don't think those two are related.

    that was interesting... reminded me of the hitman character, being genetically-engineered and all, inborn DPD in a sense. but there's definitely some relationship between his appearance and manner of speech; if one were to dissolve from the collective, basically.

    ya hitman is a cool game but the movie sucked.

    when examining their faces, the first girl has a slightly masculine face. She has a strong jaw line and her face seems wide and flat.

    The second girl has feminine beauty for sure, exudes youthfulness. Starting with big eyes well placed apart, roundish face, dimples, soft cheeks. She seems more lady like . My analysis would not suggest making a generalization but treat it as a case by case.

    I remember reading a cool article about the way people's faces affect your perception of them. People are more trusting of a person who has a more babish and feminine face as they come across more innocent looking. The opposite being true. A face that is squished together, sharp features, boney, small eyes, eyes closer together, square/rectangular, etc.

    perhaps a bizarre and slightly comical observation but it seems like many Ni have broad, long, wide foreheads, giving the impression of a higher receeding hairline, men and women alike.

    In my opinon, and maybe theirs as well but many Betas relish in the fact of how immature they are behaving, they like to do something if you tell them not to but ironically they will act mature when there is no one to act against. They seem to appeal to the agelessness of youth or to be young in spirit.

    Si have small foreheads that usually have a low receeding hairline. Si usually have incredible dextrity and coordination.

    out of curiosity, what kind of face do you have in terms of a masculine or feminine face? They say opposites attract, is that true in terms if you have a masculine face your attracted to a feminine face and if you have a feminine face your attracted to a masculine face? you can answer non-socionically.
