Welcome to 16 Types-to-Go:|
The Face Dock method of Visual typology is an application that emerges from investigative research in the field of Psychology. The field is vast, with more stones than a single person could hope to turn, but this search radiates from a single arresting fact: the human face is often, if not always strikingly asymmetrical. The two halves of a face may even simultaneously display incongruent emotions! (Observe this picture of Charles Gounod for example.) How can this be, and what does it imply? Is there a clue here that could help us understand the nature of consciousness and of communication? Why do some faces show a greater degree of divergence between their two vertical halves than others? Is this a sign of health or of psychological vulnerability?
To follow my on-going investigation of these questions, go to the Research tab of the menu. There, you may read about scientific research and discoveries in the area of hemispheric specialization. You will hear of some curious facts, and learn about the theories underlying the Face Dock method of visual typology.
Navigating this site
If you are interested in learning the Face Dock method of quickly identifying or confirming personality types with the aid of a photograph, you will find a hands-on tutorial of this method under the Visual typology tab. Begin with the intro and work your way through, or come back and review a section by selecting an item in the sub-menu. If you find that the scrolling images on the left side of the screen are distracting, simply rest your mouse there while you are reading, and this will interrupt the scrolling. You may click on the Face Dock logo at any time to return to this Home page.
