    I am the most Brick person ive ever met.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    i like shoulders on men. naturally i find broad shoulders most attractive, but i can gradually note the manly qualities of other shoulder "types."

    @suedehead - Since you are interested in body types you will like this website describing the 25 body types, and their personalities that go with. Its extremely interesting. I have the original two great big volumes on this (I got them for very little, used on Amazon), the men's and the woman's versions, and it has maybe 8 very different people for each type, and pics of front, side and back - in bathing suits, and descriptions of how to identify the types. (There is also a complete one-volume book with pics/descriptions of men and woman for the 25 types, but you get fewer photos altogether, obviously.) The people depicted for all the types all look very different, yet, you can see clearly how they are the same type. ( @Maritsa, you, too, might like this book since you really like VI in Socionics).

    So Suedehead I think you really might like the book, which you could order on Amazon used. Because you express a lot of interest in this. And you will see that there is a typical type that models bathing suits (maybe two or three types fit that bill) and are seen baring all on TV and movies, which can lead one to think one is deformed or deficient for not looking like that, but in actuality there are 24 other types and all of them are NORMAL. And personalities to go with, which is interesting. I am Blood and my husband is Brain.

    See this page for a picture of 3 of the 25 male body types contrasted: since I cannot seem to post images here anymore: https://www.bodytype.com/bodytype_stuff/motif/men.jpg

    Added two inches to my bi-deltoid breadth recently via muscle memory, so I look like more like a slightly more sinuous rectangle now.

    Ranked:

    1) Brick
    2) Nacho
    -
    -
    3) Cucumber
    -
    -
    4) Stringbean
    5) Tomato
    6) Snowman
    7) Pear

    The tomato, snowman, and possibly the pear would look better than the stringbean at a lower body fat percentage though.

    Women:

    1) Hour-glass
    2)Triangle
    -
    -
    -
    3) Round (not sure why I have this ranked so high - might be the coquettish pose)
    4) Rectangle
    5) Inverted triangle

    2)Triangle

    3) Rectangle
    4) Round (not sure why I have this ranked second-to-last - I guess it looks more feminine proportionally)
    5) Inverted triangle
    Every individual woman has her own preferences in terms of the ideal body type for men. All men would pretty much agree that the Hourglass is the ideal.
    There is way more diversity in preferences when it comes to women. Ever heard of the Dadbod? It was all the rage. That's rather the Pear, or even Tomato.

    Then there are women who are really into boyish skinny guys, aka the String Bean.

    Based on research and knowing women's taste more generally, I'd say most women prefer a guy to look like a mix between the Cucumber and Nacho.
    Those women who find fit/muscular guys more attractive would like the guy to lean more towards the Nacho and maybe even the Brick,
    whereas women who do not like that much muscle on a guy would like him to lean more towards the Cucumber or even String Bean.

    Personally, my favourite body types are Nacho, Brick, and Cucumber. A mix of Nacho and Brick would be my "ideal".
    I find the String Bean and Snowman the most unattractive, the former is actually worse to me.

    P.S: For a woman, a guy's personality will always matter more than his body shape.
    So while he may not be her physical ideal, if his personality is (close to) her ideal, she'll be pretty happy.

    That's what I mean when I say personality matters more!
    I can totally relate to that... many women can, probably.

    Women who like sloppy, overweight guys see them as good long-term relationship material, nothing more. If you want to slay or be in a non-tepid/sexless relationship, then you're better off being somewhat lean.

    Partially true, but if women didn't occasionally reward beta men with sex they would totally snap and kill them. I know a very ugly woman with a fat and ugly man. She still fantasizes about being fucked by the Chad (like they all predictably do) - but she is with the fat ugly nice comic book dude guy because she herself isn't a model herself and looks like a deformed duck. (sorry if that sounds mean it's just the truth though) They could make the sex work with the lights off and some imagination I think... or maybe i'm wrong and they are really into each other who knows. There is hope for everybody.

    I also want to add that although my female friend I'm talking about isn't physically attractive, she's a wonderful person with a very good heart. She is genuinely kind, so she isn't going to completely scoff off a fat beta male like a cruel princess would. We generalize women a lot but morally they can be very different. I think maybe it's the women who try to have a serious, loving relationship with Chad and 'change him' like fifty shades of gray (instead of enjoying it as just a fantasy or a fun fuck buddy) that are the most psychologically damaging and also hateful in other ways, and society supports this. (I mean Hollywood but they are evil anyway you know) That is just an immature female fantasy. Grown up women know how much bs that is, like my enfp cousin. I've noticed women who are really over the top campy and incredibly simplistic with the bad boy thing have their right and wrong centers in their brain completely fucked up. They will say things like 'I'm a nice girl into bad boys' But they are bad girls into bad boys....

    Is that why you went the other direction with your avatar?

    I go for bricks (tall bricks lol). I like broad shoulders but not if his waist/hips are narrow. I would take a fat guy over a skinny guy. I'm a rectangle according to SH's illustration.
