    Smile The INFP smile

    Ok, I've seen this being mentioned a couple of times in several threads, including the latest about Beefeater's photo in the picture thread.

    So, what is the description of this smile?

    To INFPs, How do you practice it? Do you have a specific thought/emotion that causes this smile?

    To others, what information does this smile convey to you?
    4w5, Fi>Ne>Ti>Si>Ni>Fe>Te>Se, sp > so > sx

    appreciates being appreciated, conflicted over conflicts, afraid of being afraid, bad at being bad, predictably unpredictable, consistently inconsistent, remarkably unremarkable...

    I may not agree with what you are feeling, but I will defend to death your right to have a good cry over it

    The whole problem with the world is that fools & fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. ~ Bertrand Russell

    Description/Specific Thought: Hi, I don't really know you but here's a smile to ease the mood. I am a little bit shy and a little bit nervous and a little bit I don't know what I am doing, so here take a smile just to ease things up.

    No, I don't practice this. I did not really notice I do this.

    i don't know what the INFP smile is, I have a pretty good idea based on another INFP I know though...

    I usually forget to smile entirely.

    I have no idea what the fuck an interlocutors hand is.

    I'm drunk.

    Ehh...

    I use it as my 'plz be nice to me'-shield when I feel insecure and vulnerable but cannot escape the situation.

    I'll also use the more confident variant to put others at ease (often with a soft touch on their wrist or shoulder), who are feeling unsure of themselves.

    I cannot really explain when I do it or how I feel when doing so, but I tend to show that specific shy smile often.

    Oh well, eye contact was always difficult for me (bit less now) and I sure as hell won't TOUCH other people why talking with them.

    I heard I have INFP eyes.. but never an INFP smile..
    This could be well due to the rarity of my smile.

    What that smile, where the left corner of your mouth is more turned up than your right.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
