    Default MBTI and looking happy

    I was going to make a poll about this but couldn't see see the icon for setting up a poll so... What I want to know is -- who the heck are these people who look so darn happy and radiate positivity all the time? Most people seem to be neutral or sometimes look a bit happy or sad, others have a happy default and others just look negative. I'd think that extroverted feelers look the happiest. I'm very jealous of these types because I think it's a huge asset to have this positive glow. Unfortunately I do not. I've been told that I look kind of bitchy and that I'm friendlier than I look.

    What type are you and what kind of face to you present to the world?

    Well it's strange that you post this today as someone mentioned to this to me earlier.... It's hard to judge what you are projecting to the world however, I have had a few people telling me that I seem very happy all the time. This one particular person who mentioned it today said that she was intrigued because she couldn't think why I would be happy in a particular situation... I don't know about glow... I can't be the best judge of myself obviously... The other thing is that I ike to make everyone around me happy and so to me to be always smiling is not out of place.
    ... couldn't drag me away

    I generally always look angry or depressed. In general I'd call it serious. When I'm happy the smile I put on is hardly a smile, even though I feel happy. If you look in my profile the pictures there were of me with my natural expression, and you will understand what I'm talking about. It's funny, the other INFPs I know IRL and online always look serious even when they are happy. Maybe it's a trend.

    EDIT:

    ENFPs always look happy, it brings about envy to me, since even when I am truly happy I will never look as happy as you when you are in your natural state. Every ENFP I know online and offline always looks happy or satisfied with themselves.

    I guess I mostly look happy. I laugh and smile a lot. When among people I don't feel too comfortable with, I often look serious or sad though.

    Yeah I lighten up around people too, but I still have a serious expression even though I laugh and smile a lot.

    EDIT: I guess you could call it this "peaceful happiness" that Wild Horses mentions below. That seems pretty accurate.

    That doesn't surprise me Erina! Yea me too. When I was little people used to assume that I had been eating sugar... as I was always giggling and happy HAHAHA... Yea I have met some pretty positive ESFPs... One thing I like about them actually!! I have also known some pretty happy INFPs too! One in particular comes to mind and whilst he doesn't always go around grinning like a cat ( Which I probably do) He has a peaceful happiness about him which I find really lovely to be around!

    People don't tell me I look happy, but the do tell me I look like I have no worries. "Like a character in a stoner movie." And that's an actual quote.

    My neutral face is read by others as either sad or tired. I would get that on occasion while growing up. If I was just sitting there thinking about something, people would ask, "What's wrong?" or "Is something wrong?", and I'd be like...uh, no.....
