    I know that sometimes, when thinking, I have a sad/tired look on my face because of the ever-present shadows under my eyes (they're there even when I've had lots of sleep!) and the natural downward turn of the corners of my mouth. But at the same time, I could easily be grinning about something I just thought of.

    I know that I have a very expressive face that usually betrays how I really feel about something...especially when I'm not aware of how I feel at the time. It's very frightening for me for someone to tell me the expression on my face and it be exactly a reflection of what I was thinking at that moment. It's frightening, because the only time I'm aware of the expression on my face is when I'm purposefully trying to show an expression for some kind of effect. So, most of the time, I don't know what my face looks like at any given moment. Even if I'm smiling, I don't always know what else might be communicated. It's because of this that I'm a terrible liar.

    When around other people, I smile and laugh a lot because there is so much information I'm receiving that a lot of it ends up being very amusing...aside from someone being outright funny.

    Me too, and I think I just realized what's been happening

    I'm usually smiling a little bit, which I guess prompts them to smile at me, and then I guess I smile even more at them after that. It's like some insane empathy feedback loop, or something.

    That's why people seem to think I'm so trustworthy

    Now, if someone's features "match" their type, then its all the eaiser for them to be accurately interpreted as they communicate with others. Those whose features are not indicative of their personality might just not be as easily read by others. Does that make sense?
    Yes, this is right. My features are delicate and I've been told time and again that I look deceptively sweet and innocent and - I suspect - slightly unintelligent. I've also been told that when people see me smile, the innocence assumption goes right out the window! But it takes a little while for people to see me as I actually am, and I'm used to being dismissed the first one or two times I express my opinion about something thought or work related with new people.

    Guess that's not so much MBTI, but it definitely shows that a face doesn't always accurately convey what's behind it.

    That sounds just like me.

    I know a rather pessimistic girl who frequently remarks on my 'extroversion', 'inability to stop smiling when talking', 'general happiness'
    But I also know people (including an ESFJ male) who tells me I 'eat with a very pained expression on my face'. And I like eating, and am not anorexic, though I am very uncomfortable opening my mouth wide in mixed company seeing as how I'm inclined to bursting into laughter at any minute and spitting cake on people. True story.
    I think I make excessive eye contact though. An ESFP (I think) girl frequently looks away when I'm talking to her, even though I don't think I really pay much attention to what she's saying, I just turn to her when she's talking (which is normal for me).

    i've been told by many people that i am always happy, and that i always have lots of energy ! like some other ENFP's said, my instinctual reaction around people is to smile and be generally happy and positive.

    How do so many people know how they look?

    I've been told that I'm very easy to read, facially by some people, and by others it's impossible to read me.

    People have thought I'm sad when happy, happy when exceedingly low, really angry when just a bit down in the dumps...

    I apparently have trademark looks for being pissed off, content and when something's REALLY wrong though.

    I'm say my xSFP friend looks the most obviously happiest.

    INT's can look very moody, stony or pertubed.

    An INFJ friend has the strongest 'dead' look I've seen in my life, it made me want to cry...Come to think of it I did cry later on...it was THAT sad.

    The same friend and her INTJ sister are terrifying when somewhat annoyed, it's like their faces' are shooting some ray of doom at all in their path.

    My brother's friends are scared of me because my face doesn't emote when I'm around them. It's only because they annoy me!

    I'm pretty easy to read -- well, at least it's easy to tell when I'm in a good mood.

    My default expression is critical, though.

    The other day I was chewing while I walked by someone and made eye contact. It bothered me that I didn't smile. Then I remembered that most people don't smile at eye contact. My !@#$% ENFPness.
