    Here's what I see: They put forth an effort, you didn't.

    You want to diss their typing abilities, how about you show us yours?

    Effort is necessary to success, but effort isn't equivalent to success. Now explain how you've determined that your mentality has been accurately typed by strangers who viewed a few photos and said nothing more than "you look like...".

    Explain to me how I'd be doing any better by listening to a sideline critic claiming they're wrong.

    Doesn't help this situation any does it?

    It seems to me that EK is trying to find some legitimacy between VI and personality when all along I've said that the two are complimentary.

    Mechman, ekpyrosos IS "making an effort" and helping by letting you know its bs, I don't get why you're being argumentative about it.

    Because it isn't very helpful to simply state that someone else is wrong without supplying an alternative.
    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.

    Because he's getting on other people for VI me without any explanation, yet he's claiming they're wrong without any explanation.

    He's doing the exact same thing they're doing, except on the opposite end of the spectrum.

    I can see SLI. Are you blood type A?

    Your personality is also seen in the pictures, as they include a social context! It is not pure VI.

    If his pictures were him playing a pen and paper D&D game, playing a synthesizer (alone) and standing around (alone) in a martial arts costume, then a few photos of him in a large group engaged in causal dining at Applebees (a work related team outing) I would have a totally different type for him. I would say EII!

    It is not pure bone structure.

    The alternative is "don't use vi," obviously.

    Do you really need an explanation for why looking at somebody in a photograph isn't a key to understanding their cognitive workings? really, really?

    So you're saying the setting of my pictures gives away my type? Or you're saying that's why it's difficult to VI me?

    BZZZZZZZZZZT. I'm questioning the utility of VI and cautioning against jumping to hasty conclusions, although you did chat this fellow up in his introductory thread prior to eyeballing his pix. Now since we've cleared up your latest mistaken assumption, be so kind as to provide the standard by which you measure someone's type from photographic evidence.

    Alright.

    Visual identification, or "VI", as it is commonly called, refers to the process of identifying socionic types based on visual information alone. Depending what method the socionist has developed, this term may refer to any of the following:

    diagnosing types based on photographs or their appearance and movements in video
    diagnosing types based on people's appearance and movements in real life
    using the above as part of the type diagnosis process, but not exclusively

    Most often, among enthusiasts, to VI someone means making a guess about a type based on photographs.
    Check it out...there's even a stickied thread about this on this very forum.

    This method is known as "Visual Identification." Videos are highly preferable, but if you choose to post pictures (and you certainly don't have to), I strongly recommend that you

    1) post multiple pictures, if possible, and
    2) post more than just pictures (i.e. description)

    Personally, for visual identification I prefer to have dozens of pictures (or better, someone's whole facebook account), but this is a forum, and there are issues with privacy and space. If you follow these guidelines, the typings you get will be more accurate.
    Not to mention I already got typed via text explanations earlier.

    Who are you to tell me what I can and can't do anyways? Give me a break.

    I am fucking with you over the blood type...

    A picture says a thousand words. Of course socionic type can be guessed better with dynamic input. Your face alone says very little, except maybe that you are judicous...

    Fe vulnerablity triggered his mobilizing Fi to produce a solution to the problem. He expresses dislike (Fi) to balance his uneasyness with the negative feelings he was getting from Korpsey.

    None of those quotes have anything to do with anything. there are websites where you can get tarot readings and horoscopes too. I'm not telling you what to do. in fact, I'm encouraging you to be more open minded. but okay.

    Not sure what all that means, new to Socionics. Anyways, all that's going on right now is my getting slightly annoyed by the lame arguments being put up.

    Look into enneagram 6, my sensitive & projecting pal, especially the counter-phobic subtype. E-6 is generally a good fit with SLI, which, though indefinite, seemed a safe bet from your self-description in the other thread.

    Note to MrRTR, the other freshly-birthed SLI: put your pride aside and give phobic 6 a closer look. If huffiness on the internet is any indicator, this dude's testicular fortitude leaves yours in the dust.

    So you're discounting VI completely? Why are you even here?

    Esc - Well I think he was doing something more like providing skepticism than saying it was bs but I can't speak for him.

    In any case I have no idea why you'd be incredulous about it. information can be helpful whether it falls in line with the norm opinion or not, you know.

    Not really sure where you're getting this, "sensitive/projecting" stuff. I'm a little heated yeah, but I'm far from being pissed off. And whatever "projection" you read, wasn't really, "projection." Most was either sarcasm or just the honest truth, "I'm done with this crap," I say that when I can't get a garbage bag wrapped around the rim of the can.

    My issue is that you refused to listen to reason and eventually degraded to pointing out a spelling error, which in my book is basically you saying, "I can't win this debate, so I'm going to ignore the facts and just nitpick". It's just a waste of time. I'm not personally offended and don't feel personally attacked in the least bit. It's just annoying when I make a clear point and it's ignored.

    As far as type 6 goes, that's a no go. I've studied the Enneagram for well over a year now and type 5 is pretty much a fit.
