Question #1202688549Monday, 11-Feb-2008
Category: Visual Identification Theory

A1 Check out the section on V.I. (on this website) for your answer, there's an article about facial similarities and how socionists type people using V.I. From what I understand, V.I. is a very reliable tool *when used correctly*. Who decides it's being used correctly and who knows how to use it correctly are two very good questions, in light of the fact that Socionics is a much more prominent field of study in eastern Europe than anywhere else. And it sounds like socionists still disagree on V.I. in some cases, so like anything, it's not foolproof. -- Anonymous
