How to interpret your results: 

Dominant answers in column A: 
Extreme, sharp Yang - Dramatic 

Dominant answers in column E: 
Extreme, soft Yin - Romantic 

Dominant answers in column C: 
Balanced between the extremes - Classic 

Dominant answers in column B: 
Soft Yang - Natural 

If answers are an even mixture of the extreme opposites of column A and column E: 
Combination of opposites - Gamine 

If answers are dominant column A, with several answers in column E as a strong secondary force: 
Bold Yang with a pronounced Yin undercurrent - Soft Dramatic 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure should be Yang-dominant while your body type (flesh) and/or your facial features should be primarily Yin. 

If your answers are dominant column E and/or column D, with several answers in column A as a secondary force: 
Soft Yin with a slight Yang undercurrent - Theatrical Romantic 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your body type (flesh) and your facial features should be Yin-dominant while your bone structure should be slightly Yang-influenced. 

If your answers are dominant column C, with several other answers in columns A and/or B: 
Balanced, with a Yang influence - Dramatic Classic 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your body type (flesh) and features should be primarily balanced between the extremes of Yin and Yang while your bone structure should be more Yang-influenced. 

If your answers are dominant column C, with several answers in columns D and or E: 
Balanced, with a Yin influence - Soft Classic 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure should be primarily balanced between the extremes of Yin and Yang while your body type and facial features should be more Yin-influenced. 

If your answers are dominant column B, with several answers from column A: 
Strong Yang with blunt edges - Flamboyant Natural 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure should be extremely Yang-dominant while your body type (flesh) and facial features will be moderately Yang-dominant. 

If your answers are dominant column B, with several answers from columns D and/or E: 
Soft Yang, with a Yin undercurrent - Soft Natural 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure should be moderately Yang-dominant while your body type and facial features will be Yin-influenced. 

If your answers have nearly an equal mixture of opposite extremes from columns A and E, while you also have several answers in column B: 
Combination of opposites, extra Yang - Flamboyant Gamine 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure and body type (flesh) should be Yang-dominate while your features and stature are Yin-dominate. Your facial bones will be from the strong, Yang side. 

If your answers have nearly an equal mixture of opposite extremes from columns A and E, yet you also have several extra answers in column D: 
Combination of opposites, extra Yin - Soft Gamine 
Note: To qualify for this theme, your bone structure should be Yang- dominate while your body type (flesh) should be Yin-dominant. Your facial features should be extremely Yin-dominant. 

In determining your Yin/Yang balance and resulting Image Identity theme that balance defines you as, don't worry if your readings don't exactly match the profiles given here. The point is one of overall balance on the scale, meaning that there may indeed be slight alterations here or there in your physical makeup. Strive, instead, to define which of the themes you most closely resemble, and use this as your guideline. Don't, however, define youself as a mixture of themes. The themes don't mix. 

NOTE: Kibbe does not label the D category. He does not have an Ingenue category, but one author suggests that is what it may correlate to in other systems.

What about if you got mostly column D as a result? I couldn't find the results for D.

Kaitlyn Boffey said...

Thanks unknown, I also got almost all column D with a few from E and B and I don't even know what D stands for. Any help Jane?

What if you got mostly E with C as a secondary?

Jane Rekas said...

Probably Soft Classic?

Unknown said...

I got 11 A's, 2 B's, and 2 C's. I have no idea where this puts me, as I personally tend to identify with more of the "gamine" style- in spite of being 5'9"! I have no idea what any of this means. :( Any help?

Jane Rekas said...

Dominant A is Dramatic but please click on my Closet tab at top of the blog for more (though it's McJimsey version).

Eve Hutchison said...
