    Default Body type would help determine type?

    This guy is the French King Louis XVIII.

    I have been reading a biography, and it seems to me that he must be Gamma NT.

    However, it's difficult to say whether he was INTp or ENTj.

    These are paintings -- the first one is of him as a young man, around 18, the others, as king. He was even heavier than the paintings suggest.

    How many of you would say that this is enough evidence to point towards INTp rather than ENTj?

    to the extent that body type is involved in type analysis, i think it would be very hard to differentiate by mirror or by similar types. a situation where body type might be useful could be INTj/ESFp, where clearly the ESFp has a greater incidence of a larger body.

    No.

    That is his brother, King Charles X, at the age of 68. Not that fat is he?

    Well but I wouldn't need body type to differentiate between INTj and ESFp.

    true; so perhaps body type is simply not a useful tool. certainly i don't think the fact that he's heavy is any kind of reasonable argument for INTp over ENTj.

    i'm actually a little confused as to why you suggest that INTps are probably heavier than ENTjs. my experience has indicated that many INTps (possibly including myself) are very light. not to say i think ENTjs are large either.

    Well, not INTps in particular -- but about IPs being more likely to be overweight than EJs.

    I have thought the same. There are free body types: pycnic, asthenic and that third one (which I can't remember at the moment.) There's surely some point in the idea how some types have some body type. I wouldn't imagine ESTp being an asthenic . So something has to be in there.

    But my dream is to describe one type through the other typologies. In other words other typologies are connected with socionics system. So the psychology (and some other fields) are socionized.

    Like ESFj: extrovert in means of Eyseneck, type A, rigid on a scale rigidy -flegibility, concrete thinker, interpersonal IQ. And things like that. This could be very useful tool in a psychology.

    fat is not the only variable influencing metabolism which it seems you are using as an analogy for temperament
