    I have not cried for a very long time, if I ever tear up around people I try hiding it to the best of my abilities. I cannot cry in front of someone, opening up generally is hard.

    It's strange. Up until a few years ago I never used to cry. Now almost anything can set me off--inspirational, sorrowful, joyful or mundane, no doubt there will be something about it that triggers something in me that I can only express through tears. But I always make sure that no one notices. Over the past few years I've gotten really good at hiding it.

    Very, very rarely do I break out in tears.

    In the last five/ten years, the only times I've cried that I can recall are: when my dog died, when my close friend's dog died, and when I broke up with my girlfriend of several years. I don't tend to cry when people die. Like I'm emotional as hell and whatnot, but that kind of emotion is so deep within me I have a really difficult time showing it physically. It's more of a state of shock or paralysis.

    I wish people would stop viewing INFP's as these massive balls of emotions. I question the typing of outwardly emotionally volatile people claiming to be INFPs. An INFPs sadness is deep within them. It's difficult to express strong emotions easily as they're so internalized; this is especially true for INFP men. All INFP's are different but as a whole, we're not one of the types most likely to break out into hysterics. That would be the strong Fe-users.

    Good... I agree with this. 😅

    I always wondered what it was...

    God -- the same. I'll blink rapidly and try to use my sleeve to rub my eyes quickly. I'll stretch. I'll yawn. I'll blame it on allergies.

    I just can't let people see me upset.

    I cried easily as a child, from something as simple as when someone was stern with me or someone else close to me was crying. I had trouble controlling when I cried, I was really sensitive. And as I got older, Id seclude myself to cry and it was therapeutic in a weird way. Like I just needed to go in the bathroom every week and have a good cry lol. If I was watching a movie with my family and something struck a chord with me emotionally I would hold it back, or leave to cry if there was no controlling it. I cried a lot less when I was 14 or 15 I'd say. After that I still cried sometimes but I kept trying to hold it back a lot, or I began not to care about certain things. Mostly though I learned to keep myself under control emotionally. These days I feel things deeply but it doesnt always come to the surface, it still sticks with me though.
