Tom H. V: KTS in 2017 - Experimental

Explain Dominant Color Explain Auxiliary Color

The Red in this image represents my slight preference for using emotion rather than logic to make decisions in many situations. In Introverts, the dominant function is directed inwardly, and spiritual portraits use a long horizontal line to represent this. Because this is a very slight preference, I can be flexible and make logical decisions when the situation calls for it.

The Blue in this image represents my preference for idealism over pragmatism. In Introverts, the auxiliary function is directed outwardly and is more evident than the dominant function. This preference is fairly strong and shows up consistently when I take different versions of the various online four-letter type quizzes.

Tom H. V: KTS in 2017 - Experimental:
The Story

This portrait is based on a score from taking the Keirsey Temperament Sorter in 2017. The score is nearly identical to my score on the same quiz thirty years ago.

The image looks a bit different only because I have played around with some options in the latest version of the Groja © program. These options allow me to increase the number of squares (the resolution) in an image or reshape them into rectangles or — as in this case — both.

I believe adjusting the aspect ratio by flattening or lengthening the squares may be a good way to represent Extraversion versus Introversion. Using this technique, spiritual portraits of Extraverts would be taller than they are long, and portraits of Introverts — as in the self-portrait on this page — would be longer than they are tall.

At this time, however, I remain unsure about this. So for the forseeable future, I will continue making images using the default resolution with the square aspect ration.

Of course, if a paying customer wanted me to adjust the resolution or aspect ratio or both, one way or another for their portraits, I would be happy to oblige!
