Good stuff. That is something I have thought about too and I agree with most of your observations. It seems like kind of a chicken-egg dilemma though. INTPs being preoccupied with the abstract and thus less in tune with their physical bodies, proper body posture may not be that intuitive to them. Or, is it because they are structurally weak that they are compensating by (or "trapped to") excessive intellectualism?

On the other hand, sensors who are aware of their body may find it it easy to naturally allow the energies within to keep the spine upright. When you are physically fit, athletic movements become fun to perform. All kinds of sports seem to become more enjoyable the better my anatomy becomes. I have also begun appreciating the physical dynamics of social interactions on deeper level. If someone is posturing in a dominant stance, I can mirror it and perceive how it achieves a sense of mutual respect. Likewise, if I assume  a confident stance right from the beginning of an interaction, I may find that other people take a more submissive stance. It's a fascinating whole new playground to conquer.

Neurotransmitters probably play a part in this. I think the cognitive activity of sensors is more oriented around stimulating neurotransmitters, which in turn gives the physical energy to stand upright. I have noticed that the few times I have taken recreational amphetamines my tongue is driving against palate very hard. Intuitives on the other hand may be oriented around calming neurotransmitters, which allow them to tune out and focus on the abstract.

The ancient system of Chakras and Maslow's hierarchy of needs are two systems that I have sought to fuse together with MBTI. The brain extends down the spine via the spinal cord and autonomous nervous system. More primal emotions and motivations are felt closer to the base of the spine (think of fight-or-flight, anxiety/fear, lust and dominance), and the more transcendental and abstract near the upper end of the skull. Each individual "lives through" a certain area of the nervous system. Could it be that the conscious energy of sensors is more focused around the hip area, and the conscious energy of intuitives more focused around the skull?

Ha, I used to be deep into MBTI and Jungian psychology too and I agree with Ryan that you are a clear INFP Tyler. I think the most obvious signs are how you can write to such extent about your experiences, and the authentic way you express yourself. Your gaze also seems gentle yet intelligent in a way that is often prevalent among intuitive feelers.

What's your type Ryan? I seem to fall somewhere along the NT axis, probably INTP.

Your strong features mask your maldevelopment well. You have good forward growth. Based on lacking orbital support and jaw contour, it looks like your biggest problem is narrow palate.

That's correct, and yes improper tongue posture during development is the root cause of most cases of teeth crowding, jaw recession and other similar problems. If tongue posture is a new concept to you, I suggest you check out Orthotropics -youtube channel for more details. In short, you have to cram as much of the tongue you can on the hard palate & soft palate with a force that is sufficient enough to keep your skull upright.

Start with light forces. People have damaged their teeth with excessive facepulling. In the end, facepulling is only a surrogate for proper anatomical function. If you are able to maintain firm tongue posture, there should not be need to facepull at all.

Is this jamo716? Is your method still the same? Could you post side view?

Cranial Restructuring / Re: Tongue too far back?

Ah, well yes. Considering how posterior tongue touches not just the palate, but the lower wings of the sphenoid too, that may have some practical validity:

And in addition, the anterior part of the palate truly is separated by another suture:

In the end, proper tongue posture leads to pressure being generated against both the anterior and posterior palate/sphenoid, so the most useful thing would be to simply focus on achieveing as wholesome tongue posture as possible.

Mew is of the opinion that the tongue should not touch teeth. Beyond that, I don't think it's that significant. Do whatever feels the most intuitive, or play around with different positions. Sometimes sliding the posterior tongue back & forth can be helpful in finding proper position & muscle activation.

Yeah that seems reasonable.  From my own experiences, I suspect that what you refer to as a tension-free state, is in practice the ability to position the body in a way that supports postural equilibrium. In other words, either standing up straight and tall as a fully self-supporting monolith resting against its own weight, or sitting on a damn good chair. Proper lotus pose is probably intended to achieve the same thing.

To me succesfully getting the posterior tongue as far up there as it can go soothes the nervous system in a way that is simultaneously calming and mildly energisizing. I don't reach this position every day, but every time I do it has happened after taking half an hour to find and forcefully tense and warm up all the necessary musculature required to reach close to 100% symmetrical and self-balanced posture (which does feel incredible). And that's temporary only. The next morning I'm stiff again and I have to repeat the process over. It gets easier over time.

To answer OP's question: it may be hard to achieve the state of relaxation Tyler is talking about while having to bite on anything. Proper upper spine posture is easy to achieve with the hockey helmet decive, because the forces generated by it are countered by the same muscles that are required to hold the spine straight.

 Anyhow, I would advice you to practice getting your whole core into your conscious control until you're able to "inhale"/compress the whole torso (stomach, back, chest, tongue, neck) inward towards the lungs and the spine, resulting in a very stable and fluid posture.  It's essential that you learn to do this. Because without the tongue being able to use the spine and the palate as a leverage for anchoring itself deep into the open space beyond your soft palate, the resting position of the tongue isn't able provide enough static pressure to achieve change.

Probably. Myofunctional therapy advices patients to sleep on their back. In this position the tongue tends to end up pushing against the palate throughout the night. I've noticed that often when I go to bed, relax and let my tongue rest against the palate, my sinuses make several popping and cracking sounds, clearing all congestion and making breathing VERY easy. The amount of air I breathe in this state is also slightly stimulating and sometimes I can't fall asleep for a while.

Ha, when you set on to change your face in spite of respected professionals dismissing it as impossible, claiming that the face you have now is the genetic expression of "you" that you were meant to have, how could anything that happens next not be an adventure?

But yes, I understand 100% what you mean by having the intuitive knowledge that your face is lacking in some way.

Liver is disgusting

Have you tried submerging the liver in full fat milk for a couple of hours before cooking it? Neutralizes the taste very efficiently.

Anything that directly or indirectly targets the sphenoid has the potential to expand the whole skull, palate included.
