    Default VI

    Why is it that some types can see the connection between personality type and physiology and others can not?

    What characteristics make certain types more prone to resist the idea of physiology as an indicator of personality?

    Since you've argued repeatedly that as an EII you're a declaring type, go ahead and declare it all over us.

    There are several reasons for both questions.


    Why is it that some types can see the connection between personality type and physiology and others can not?

    Utilization of a method in approaching the subject matter allows some types to apply something to view it's consistency, is my best answer here. The reason why others can not may be due to refusing, valuing perception rather than analysis and conformity.

    What characteristics make certain types more prone to resist the idea of physiology as an indicator of personality?

    Resisting the idea of physiology as an indicator of personality again has several reason behind it, some more shallow and brief and others more deliberate and complicated. Where shallow, I would say that the person simply wants to deny it, for their own reasons; where more deliberate, I would say that the person wants to create a system outside of this, in which case, all their efforts to such a direction are directly contradictory to that of others.

    VI is unreliable. Even if it is true, it is an artform that very few can master. Many subtle signs hint to personality.

    anyway, just making a point.

    edit: also, more 'conventional' or w/e VI is not based on fat or lack of fat etc, like you've commented in the past.
    Please describe these INFjs

    I don't consider physiological traits to be too telling about cognitive patterns. Sure, there may be something to working out type based on pictures, but the way most people on this forum do it is merely say "You look like 'x' so I think you might be type 'y'." That's WRONG WRONG WRONG.

    If anything, VI would rely on subtle indications that have nothing to do with physiological genealogy, such as facial expression and similar indications of emotions, though I'm not sure about this. I have heard several times before that the eyes are most telling concerning VI.
