If I had a dollar for every time I heard the phrase, "you wear your heart on your sleeve" said in a negative way...I'd be rich.
Most times I hear this phrase is when I'm in an overstimulated environment/situation and am asked how I feel and why. Apparently, they are asking because my face gives away everything even though I don't realize it. I then express to them what I am feeling; which people tend to think is silly or minor. They also express I shouldn't feel that way because they and others do not.
If I do not express it or tell people that nothing is going on, they become upset with me for holding back because I have already communicated something with my facial expression.
I get this a lot from my ENFP friends.
I'm curious if any other INFJs get told this term and how you feel about it?
I'm also curious if any other types have been told this and how they feel about it?
