    The guy proved to be EII, why can't I rely on anyone here? :-((

    It probably has something to do with the fact that you only posted 2 pictures and VI is a completely unreliable methodology to begin with. Things like videos are more helpful if you're trying to use VI.

    i was jk, ofc. I donīt expect more than opinions when I ask for VI of strangers. And itīs mostly to see how they fit my impressions. Iīd be curious to hear what methods you consider most reliable when typing ppl you know/celebrities, if you even consider stuff like posture, body type, movements or you only try to spot functions in what they say.

    This is actually the same reason I ask for VI of people.

    I don't tend to look at body movements. Posture and resting facial expression are fine but they can be misleading and only convey a small amount of information if it's in a picture. Like in that picture you posted, you can pretty much guarantee that guy was told to pose that way. To me he actually looks like both an LSE and IEE I know, but that doesn't mean he is either of those types. I generally don't look at anything on their face structurally because its hard to say whats determined by genetics vs. what's determined by long term cognition. Really we know very little about the biological tie Socionics has to the person, or even if it does at all (I suspect there is one). So in that case, if you are using pictures to type someone, it will take a lot of pictures to be able to really uncover someones actual character because you will be forced to rely on facial expressions and other behavioral aspects, which is why I prefer video. In videos, I pay attention to the way they hold themselves, their reactions, their voice tone, what subjects they are drawn to, and how they think about things. I also try to find quadra values in how they act, how they dress, what they say, and how they mean what they say.

    It's really just a gestalt image for me and if they match with someone I've met before then that adds some weight, but I try to not let that be the deciding factor.

    If it's someone I know and who I interact with then, in addition to what I said above, I will pay attention to how we get along. Does he/she stay closed off to me in the long term (devalued Fi). Does he/she take offense to my candor or choose not to participate (valued Fe). Is he constantly wanting to do something quirky and "fun" (valued Ne). I think intertype relations are the best way to type someone you know because there is no guarantee that they will match with someone you've met before and if they do you don't know why they match really. Intertype relations for me have been the best way to type someone because people can be so deceiving. I know a lot of gammas that look like alphas and vice versa.

    He has a simulacrum of a video made public around the web, but itīs less than one min. and not meant to be serious, it would be useless. I just found some more pics:

    I still think EII, although heīs probably Ne subt. and can seem LII as well.

    he could be an LSI defo - he's got that inspecting/sceptical look to himself or even SLE-Ti. on the other hand something tells me he could be a badass IEI-Ni- his interrogative look is perfectly practiced
