    Facial Structure INFJ?

    I can't help but notice the striking similarities in the faces of INFJs. The almond shaped eyes further apart than normal. Does this mean that this is some genetic component similar to trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome). I'm If any INTJ's have an explanation I'd like to hear it. I'm quite interested.

    Has there been any research on it. If not I might have to do some.

    My eyes are really close together.
    I think we have the same look upon our faces, like we're elsewhere.

    I have almond shaped eyes, and so does my INFJ male friend - but our eyes are not wide apart.
    I definitely believe there is a genetic trend in NF's, it runs very strongly in my family, high above the normal for the general population. There is my grandmother, my uncle, my sister, my son, my niece (and myself of course) that I can think of off hand...that's a pretty large number from one family...

    I have a lot of INFJs in my family (considering we're meant to be rare...)
    Me, my mom, my sister and my nan. And we all have very expressive eyes. They all have really big eyes, mine are quiet small in comparison but still expressive.

    I totally think there is a genetic component to most personality types.

    For example I would bet that INTJs have a more developed area of their brain that process things in a logical manner, but maybe a less developed area of the brain that process emotional responses and empathic understanding.

    There is already research into people who are highly empathic that shows they have a higher level of what are called mirror neurons and along with more memory path ways. They make people more sensitive to the pain and feelings of others, because they have the same areas of their brains stimulated as the other person they are watching experience something, becuase they remember a similair feeling themselves. In other words they literally almost feel it with them.

    Could that correlate into other genetic features, that one I have no idea on, that could also become a which came first the chicken or the egg, does our appearance result in a certain way that people treat us which then results in the development of a certain personality type?

    FYI the pic of me is not so good, but I hope I do not look like some one with Downs Syndrome.

    There seems to be a pattern of fuller cheeks, thicker eyebrows, and deep set eyes in INFJ's. I find it really interesting.

    There has been research done on visual identification (VI) of types in Socionics. Though exact facial features will differ between people of same type, you can see that they have very similar expressions in their eyes. Take a look at the FIlatova's portraits for IEI/INFp (that's their Ni,Fe type) photos: IEI portraits and profiles

    and these:
    Ni-INFP: Ni-INFp
    Fe-INFJ: Fe-INFp
    pay attention to the expression in their eyes

    I have noticed that there is a similarity in our eyes, and also we tend to have oval shaped heads.
    Our eyes always give me the impression that we know deep sadness...

    Lenore Thomson talked about this in her interview: MBTI: Brain Types: Lenore Thomson Interview

    If type is influenced by the way you brain has developed, it is quite possible that this has a reflection on your look.

    I can see facial expressions maybe having some type of relationship with personality, but I don't buy into specific physical characteristics and personality being related.
