    Default Do INFP's show their emotions?

    I get defensive when I'm in a bad mood but I'm not a moody person. I take it personally when someone corects me but never show that it's upsetting out of fear of looking stupid. I would never cry in front of anyone, not even my mom. I only watch romantic/sad movies alone. I actually just got out of a relationship with a overly sensitive guy. He took all his casual friendships seriously, when it's hard for me to get all warm and gooey inside even thinking of my friends, I'm friendly but I'm not that close to any of them. When I have a crush I feel it intensely but I never show it.

    I don't really express my emotions around others, or even alone. The last time I remember crying was about 2 years ago when my dad had cancer, but I made sure nobody saw it. Every once in a while someone might witness an angry outburst, although I usually keep my emotions in check.

    Yeah, INFPs are the masters of hiding their emotions.

    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    INFPs seem pretty intense.. hats off if you actually do hide your emotions.

    Also, you might want to express them...stress can cause baldness. And that'll be another thing you'll want to cry about.

    I am often accused of being unreadable and people are often surprised when I tell them how I feel.. "I had no idea" is heard often enough

    one of my best friends is INFP and I almost never see her get emotional (in fact, I've only seen her cry once), so I think it's fairly safe to say (at least in my experience) that INFP's are very good at keeping their emotions to themselves

    I would think it's all internal.
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    To me, they seem emotional... not expressive but they can give off a moody vibe for sure. IME, they are quite moody... you just have to look closely to see it.

    Moody? Not sure. I don't think so. I'm easy going most days.

    I meant when they are annoyed or mad.
