    People rarely say those things to my INTP, but sometimes people will approach me about it. "Why doesn't he like me?" "Is he angry?" "Why didn't he say anything?"

    I might say, "Don't worry about it, he doesn't normally talk a lot."
    Or if I'm in a snarky mood, "Oh he's a traditionalist, strong but silent. Next time ask him about cars. Or sports." (and imagine with malicious glee the discomfort that will cause him)
    The reality: He's quiet because he's bored, and he doesn't like or dislike you; that would require more emotion than he cares to put into it.

    I was told yesterday that I come off as arrogant......

    I didn't care but it had me thinking. I'm far from arrogant.
    I know what I know, and I will argue my point. Not to prove wrong or right, just for the sake of learning and clarity.

    I don't hang around people like that enough. Most of my friends don't care about those things. Maybe people expect different things from women. The times that some stranger is commenting on my mood, it's not to "cheer me up", but something more intrusive, like they're reading into things. Oddly, that sort of "cheers" me up enough to laugh.

    I get "what's wrong?" or "why are you angry?" on a pretty regular basis when I'm in a perfectly content mood. I keep my anger on a tight leash when I am upset, though, and only a couple of people have ever really caught on (or at least confronted me about it). An ESFP coworker of mine was pretty good at it.

    I also get "smile!" a lot from strangers and it makes me seethe. So condescending!

    The headphones trick is a useful one to ward off random strangers on the subway and aggressive sales staff, though I enjoy music so I don't really need to fake it... I have some pretty solid "looks" that do the trick for all but the completely oblivious anyway.

    "What's wrong?"- Why should anything be wrong?
    "Why are you quiet?"- I haven't thought of anything to say yet.
    "Smile"- ??? It happens to me all the time, I usually just end up smilling because I'm thinking about "if you gave me something to smile about, I would" and wondering how'd they react to that.

    I get the "You look sick" very often when I'm depressed, too. However, I'm very frank about what's on my mind, so I've never been faced with the "Why don't you like me" query.

    I guess this is fairly common. I remember once in highschool walking down the hall and some guy stopped me to ask who's ass I was going to beat.

    A lot of times I want to pull an IxTx off to the side of real life and ask them how I should interact with them.

    My normal approach is useless here. :[

    .
    Just be real. But yeah I think there is a world of difference between an intj and istp for example so not every IXTX is gonna be the same.
