    Default Visual Identification Resources and Galleries

    http://ru.laser.ru/gallery/index.html

    Are the photo references on this site correct? Just curious...because I'm not that good at type identification.

    No way. Just an intuitive response, but a lot of those seem way off. I do however trust many of the type/celeb assesments on socionics.com. However there are not many there for each type.

    These are not "VI galleries". To determ types of this people were used different methods simultaneously, image method (or VI) was one of them. Some typers use image method more, some less, and it's dependable for each concrete situation.

    Exactly. "VI galleries" is a misnomer. Although... the fact that someone has a photo gallery suggests that they consider the photos significantly relevant to the type. I just cringe at my pages being put in the same category as wackos who type entirely based on physical appearance. I'm not saying the links here are in that category (though socionics.com could be), but with a little more digging, you could easily dig up some other sites that have a very low typing correlation to socionics.us, socioniko.net, and socioinfo.ru, which are based on compatible socionics paradigms.

    I think that what those galleries most effectively demonstrate is that there is no connection between socionic type and appearance

    ^ this guy is using pictures of many forum-goers. I wonder if they're taken with permission.

    #6 seems to be down. Up as of Nov-18-2011



    Updated with #11: http://www.kihot.ru/component/option...ery/Itemid,42/

    This site is a part of a main project with 16 sub sites for each type, but they all store the same photo galleries.

    Anatoly Fomenko as ILI, hmm. Too bad there are no interviews of him on youtube to determine whether he fits the mold. At the risk of wasting money and contaminating my brain with disinformation it's long been tempting to spring for a copy of his multi-volume pseudohistory, but so far my good sense has prevailed. At least the cosmic surreality of his artwork can be enjoyed without the dangers that his writing presents. And interestingly enough, he's a member in good standing of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, the same clearinghouse of cranks and quacks that rewarded Aunt Aushra with a diploma of dubious value for her discovery of socionics. Small world.

    Some of your entries are not about VI, you should ask authors about their main method or not say that all of them are using VI as main method. Plus, many english-speakers associate "VI" with its Ganin's interpretation, while there're not so many typers who use phisiognomy, but they may use VI in genereal meaning.
    Look at lists collection here, you may find new entries.

    Who says that the links posted have to explicitly follow any VI method at all? As far as I'm concerned, all that really has to be put forth is a list of faces with a type thrown on top of them and let people draw their own conclusions. If one goes off of VI alone, there's no way of checking it against anything else for accuracy.
