    And then again it may. Have you missed the many references in this thread to smiling being a boon, as well as the positive feedback in the picture thread when they saw a smiling picture?

    I think it's your persona, not your looks. Your chosen persona (notice I didn't say personality) repels those that are in its path. It seems to me that you enjoy it or at least find comfort in having some sort of an identity. Maybe it's the "I'll make myself repulsive to you before you can decide I'm repulsive first" thing.

    If you create a narcissistic and fake version of yourself, you never really have to feel badly if it's rejected, whereas if you actually presented your real self at its core, people could dislike you for you and that's too big of a risk to take.

    Therapy, not surgery, U-with-an-umlaut!

    Disagreed. Even the most accepting of youngsters do not cross the barrier of bad teeth/smile in this day and age. Having had probably the worst luck possible with bad orthodontists and the like, I had had a seriously misformed set of teeth throughout my younger years, and only recently have it at a level that seems to be socially acceptable and still got a ways to go. Despite having bad teeth (they're clean, not rotten or anything, just like to go on vacations and move about my jaw like hungry fish), I have never felt insecure about them or deliberatly hid them, and have found it to be an interesting tool to see how genuine some people really are when they say they don't care about looks at times too, but still never created a persona that repelled people. I've always be open and honest about it and it has never prevented me from opening up to people.

    Although as for Ü's smile, his teeth are a blessing compared to mine, so for him you might be right. :P

    I think I've already invested about ~25.000 euro in my teeth. xD

    Getting your teeth fixed up is different than investing in cosmetic surgery to change your face so people will like you when that's not the main issue.

    While I agree that teeth make a difference, I'd say that in the what's glaring priority list, teeth wouldn't be on the top of it!

    But if my teeth are imperfect, then how do I look more "attractive" when smiling?

    I'm not really trying to be "repulsive" with my "persona," I just think my "persona" makes me seem more interesting. I am hopelessly uninteresting without the "persona."

    I don't really see anything wrong with your teeth... They don't look crooked or chipped... I didn't even notice a chip in your tooth? I've seen some people that have shorter/smaller/whatever teeth than others, and yours kind of remind me of that... It's not a bad thing though.

    I think so.

    Have you tried being less like you?

    Not possible for INTP's or ENTP's. Unless you want them to become utterly stressed out. Which never seems practical in my experience.
