YAVIS is an acronym for Young Attractive Verbal Intelligent Successful. The term is commonly used in psychotherapy as it is assumed that these individuals are most likely to have successful experiences in therapy.

The opposite is referred to as a HOUND which is an acronym for Homely Old Unattractive Nonverbal and Dumb.
