Ultimate prove for VI
From the December 2012 version of Psychology Today magazine, page 52:

"Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. Appearance predicts behavior in surprising ways-some of the time. The connection between looks and personality is the ultimate chicken or egg question. And it plays out on every face you meet".

Now I am not saying that the methods used for VI are correct, but at least right now there is a scientific basis for believing that one can identify a personality type visually.

I realize there is an error in the title. It must be "proof" instead of "prove".

could you post the articles content?

What do you mean? You want me to write down the whole article?

Is this the article?

It does not seem to be a scientific endorsement that specific personality types can be reliably identified, more that identification of certain traits can be correlated in large enough samples to a degree that is statistically above average.

There is a great leap from guessing criminality, mormonism or promiscuity to reliably determining a type.

If anything this report shows that identification is not consistent or reliable (i.e. the babyface male example) and the significance of the epigenetic processess involved.

I read that studies have shown that it is easy to guess a manís intelligence from a photo but not a womanís.
