Seven Soul Type Faces & Feng Shui Elements


could Fire types be Priests? or Scholars?

could Metal relate to Priests and Scholars?

Earth types are probably Servers?

could Wood types be Scholars?

could Water types be Servers? or Artisans?

Seven Soul Type Faces

I stumbled across this system of seven soul types correlated with seven types of faces.

But it only matches up your personality, not necessarily your facial features.

The Sage soul

The King soul

The Priest soul

on the test I got Scholar, but relate to Artisan
I have the most education in my siblings,
but am a repressed artist
I could be part Server too

Vanessa is a Scholar. I do have a prominent brow.
Charlize is an Artisan

on the test mom got Artisan, but looks like a King?
Helena is an Artisan, Jackie O was a King, Dame Judy is a Warrior

Greg got Sage on the test, but I thought he looks like a Priest too
Clooney is a Sage and Steiner was a Priest

My late father definitely was an Artisan
He was an artist all his life
Paul is an Artisan

My late grandmother definitely was a Server
She was a librarian and activist

My late grandfather definitely was a Scholar
He was a PhD
Louis Pasteur was a Scholar

More later when I consider how these archeypal face categories match up with other systems.

Review of what I know about my type/season and how I determined it

This blog began 5/26/11. From the beginning I have had trouble figuring out if I am a Summer Type 2 or a Winter Type 4.  I think I'm one of those people who are troublesomely 50/50.  Please scroll the to the bottom for the latest!

I spent over $200 on the DYT courses,
which I later left 

As you may know, about a year ago I purchased the Type 2 course and exchanged it later for Type 4.  Carol said I was T4 because I can wear a very strong fuschia but also because I confronted her and apparently a T2 wouldn't have.

I'm not T4 - or so I thought..... for a long time!

According to my smile: I'm a 2 with secondary 4 because I smile the most with my mouth closed, there isn't a lot of upward movement, but there is a bit of an S curve on top.

I can wear T4 colors but I also have a softness. (Though I determined later, I cannot wear T4 black and white).

I realized my eyes are partly what throws me off, they are Summer and soft.  (Although green leans Spring, which I'm not).

I'm not Soft

The Eyes Have It
I thought my eyes were blue for decades until I started taking close up pics of them.
my soft green eyes (actually blue with gold flecks)
I did a really fun lip drape (with lipstick for all the seasons).
my best lip color was cool summer,
followed by soft summer and then cool winter

Considering Fashion Feng Shui, I'm Water with Metal (Type 2).  Metal doesn't fit into Types well, though it might be T1 by color.  Actually it's probably T4.  So this fits with 2/4.

A psychic said I am 2/3

I'm not 2/3 or Soft Summer.

I wrote this summary:

  • Type 2 or Type 4  I later left the courses altogether after leaving the DYT Type 2 Facebook group and being removed from the DYT Type 4 group for saying that I'm not a fundamentalist.
  • I spent over $200 on the IlluminEssensce course and assessment
  • I also was later Toned as a Toned II in IlluminEssensce.  I was draped in white and black and they both drain color from my face.  I can wear Tone II silver and Tone IV shiny silver.
What I wore when Taylor toned me Tone II
I am Tone II, but not that blended.

  • I recently did Irenee Riter's Science of Personal Dress, color tester, and got mostly Winter with some Spring (Bright Spring, wait sorry, Bright Winter)?

I spent $30 on the color tester, which was a bargain at the time

I'm not Bright Winter.... or am I?
from my color tester results
I do like the ideas and results from the colors.

  • My DISC high C followed by S, equals 4/2.  So I'm more Type 4 and Winter than Summer by personality.

I made an important comment about height and type.  I"m 5'10", so I can't be straight T2/Summer.

I made a little comment about playing with rules...

from my Zyla colors

According to Zyla, I thought I was a Summer, either Jeweltone or Dusky.  I might be a Soft WinterAngela Wright also has a Jeweltone Summer, which she says is often mistaken for Winter.
I thought I was a Jeweltone Summer.

With the advent of the 16 color system, I'm either Soft Summer Deep or Deep Winter Soft, not that I'm really deep, but I shouldn't wear light colors.
I am not Soft Summer Deep or Deep Winter Soft.

Because my eyes are soft, I can't be a straight Deep Winter

I esp. relate to this woman typed as Soft Winter.

I forgot to say that I am a Kibbe Soft Classic which seems like a 4/2 or 2/4 (though I'm not sure what it means for color).  Kibbe Test

I am soft classic.

when I dress T4

Most recent T2
I'm thinking my hair is too dark and cool...
I sort of miss the burgundy highlights.

BTW, I feel good in both at different times.  I think I am both.
I know I am predominantly T2, but I have so much T4 secondary it is hard to accept.
check out my T2 Not So Girly pinterest
because I'm 5'10" I simply cannot dress with the extra frills

Type 2 not so girly

I was wearing my hair very cool (right of the pic) and decided to add some red back into my hair, because I read that you will look younger if you go back to your childhood color.  This throws me off a little.  It means I have a little more warmth than I thought, which might mean I have a secondary T3, so more evidence for Soft Summer or Deep Winter, I'm also wondering about Clear Winter.  

Not only is my hair and are my eyes more warm than I thought, I think my skin is neutral.

I did the online Color E-Nalysis and got this feedback from Shari

"Hi Jane, you are not Cool, you are CLEAR....just as you ordered. In fact, you are pretty classic clear! Be very careful to make sure your makeup colors are right....Clear makeup needs to be more berries, plums...not browns, coppers. Your skin appears pretty neutral. You will LOVE the Clear colors...they are beautiful....and so are YOU!!!!! Thank you for your ya, Shari"

While I can wear clear summer colors, I am not Clear Winter. Or am I?


My colors are cool and bright, in the summer range, worn like a winter, as in contrasting, not blended.

Not to give you whiplash, but now I'm doing Type 4.

7/9/14: I went to Jennifer Butler's guest event wearing Type 4, which I'd been doing for about a month.  I had also been told by Fran Munz of Beauty for You that I was a Contrasting Imperial Winter.

I had an email exchange with Jules Standish who said she thinks I'm a Clear Spring.

12/5/14 Further Confirmation that I am a Winter.
I was analzyed by Anne Sagendorph-Moon in the Caygill method.  I'm a Patrician Winter.
