    Types which are usually more likely to be on the heavier side (not necessarily overweight): INFj, ESTj, ESFp, and INTp.

    That's correlated to sensing types... mainly ISF and EST

    It is those LIIs that are probably most underweight....


    There is no real correlation to ISFps, as it all depends whether or not they value the beauty of their appearance above the pleasure of eating food. Whichever seems better to them they will excell at.
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    Yes and no. ILIs seem to have extremes in this case: both the obese and the underweights. But LIIs being underweight is due to a neglect of , whereas such a Socionics function-related explanation for ILIs is absent.

    I know a ISFp guy who has a strong (emphasis on I, S and p traits) ; he's tall (190cm) and he's thin.
    I know a ISTp girl ( subtype ?) ; she's somewhat tall 155-160cm and she's thin... (really, most ISTp I've known were thin)

    I know a lot of heavy ISFJs. I always thought they were the chunky ones.

    I work in a nursing home and have to deal with very overweight people. The types of the morbidly obese people I've cared for:

    2 estp f
    1 ixtp m
    2 istp f
    1 isfp f
    1 estj m

    sensors and percievers. ESTps are the worse when morbidly obese. Large, round faces, small demanding eyes-- it haunts me. Rude, and tactless behaviour. No offense estps. One Istp woman is truly a princess on a pea-- She is quadraplegic and requires each and every measure of her comfort to be exact. She always compliments my work saying I know how to do everything she likes. What can I say? I know comfort.

    Anyhow, sensors are more likely to be overweight. People in poverty as well. People without the means or knowledge or desire to prepare healthy foods are also likely to be overweight.

    One day I will write type descriptions of the elderly. I don't think I am missing any types.

    Yeah my ISTj dad is quite overweight. He has terrible eating habits if he sees an offer of 10 packets of chips for cheap he will have to buy it. Quantity over quality.

    Hes just had a health scare so its finally hit home. Hes shedding the pounds fast as hes going to the gym 5 times a week. Still for a 62 year old he still plays golf etc so thats not too bad. Perhaps S types may be more likely to put on weight but i think they are more active so can loose it easier too.

    I hear this over and over again. IME it is true in general, but I am certainly not skinny.

    I'm not quite sure why it's assumed that ISTP's rarely suffer from being overweight. I myself am not, but have quite a hard time controlling myself when it comes to things that bring me pleasure. Food being one of them. If I overindulge, I take it to the other extreme and don't eat for awhile. Seems to be either one extreme or the next.
