    And when you're actually sad/stressed, people don't notice because it's like you have an internal switch in your head that automatically hides the emotion. Whereas if you're just thinking/living inside your head again, you "look sad."
    Yes, I take it with no cream and no sugar.

    And yes, some of us drink it bitter.

    Totally, but I didnt really get any attention from it until I came to Finland where everyone seems a lot more self-conscious. If I'm not happy its like 'Did I do something wrong??' in their head or something. If no one's talking to me, though, the 'deep thought' expression is basically the norm for this country. The average Finn that travels to another country seems to get aked what's got them in a bad mood according to all the travelling Finns I know.

    I guess back in my hometown people got used to how weird I was.

    My friend group is basically all crazy people (They gotta all be Ns) and I can't really get -into- the 'deep face' since I'm too busy making a damned fool of myself

    I don't think my wife looks unhappy, and she's INFJ:


    AND...



    I think body language, posture, and other consistent physically expressed traits are jnust as important as facial expressions in how others formulate opinions on our inner demeanor.

    In this one she is plotting her revenge for having to go through another 9 months of feeling fat, bloated, and achy....

    Seriously.

    I think in the first one she is a little surprised.

    And in the second she is tired.

    The revenge is scheduled to take course over the next 18 years, I am sure of it. :horor:

    She looks happy because she's with her dual. Her INFJness is balanced with your ESTPness.

    Yes, yes! I totally relate to the op. Not only do people mistake my pensiveness for anger, but when I am thinking of something amusing they asks me what I'm so happy about. My facial expressions too often don't match what is going on around me because that's not where my focus is.
