    You look sassy to me. Your expression says that you're about to start dishing fun snark about life and everyone you see. You also look like you won't take any crap. I like that...

    Indeed. I don't take any b.s. at all. I am a romantic first and foremost, but I will put my foot down when necessary.

    Haha people tell me that all the time, I am not usually feeling much of anything, but my natural facial resting position looks either sad or annoyed. I have learned to wear a fake smile when I am around people though, much easier then anything else. You can tell when my smile is genuine though vs not... when I fake smile just my lips curl, when I real smile my eyes squint.

    Me too. I wonder why that is? Why are some INFJs like that? Maybe it's our serious side. My ESFP friend is always telling me to "lighten up" or "come on, have fun", "be happy", "aren't you having a good time" when we're out at a bar or a concert. The thing is, I am having fun. I just can't plaster a phony smile on my face to please others. I wish I could because then I would be more approachable.

    Why do you want to appear more positive? If you are content, and the people who are close to you know that, then it doesn't matter what the rest of the world thinks.

    People tell me I always look serious, sometimes even sad, even when I'm feeling happy. Based on the replies so far, that also seems to be a common occurrence.

    People I'm close and intimate with tell me that I have an "intense" look at times. I tend to be extremely focused on the actions and reactions of those around me, so that might have something to do with it.

    Got too many complaints about my facial expressions over the years, so i changed, now i'm more facially engaged and relaxed, but still feeling quite fake and uncomfortable. I'm grateful that it makes people feel more comfortable around me but feels awkward.

    I realized that on video chat when I smile way more during the conversation people are just automatically happier/more open... weird! But I have read that people who cannot smile for medical reasons - like they truly actually cannot - have difficulties forming relationships. So maybe there is something here. Also, if you smile, you can trick your own subconscious into feeling happier too... so there is something to all of this!

    lol I find this thread funny . This "you can't tell but I'm quite emotional" thing is really coming out.

    Words of Ivory- I would very much suspect that what people are seeing (or atleast what I see) is that your eyes don't seem to fully connect with the outside world. I can definately relate to that...I think it's a strong tendency among people who spend a lot of time roaming around inside their own heads to find the outside world to be a bit too loud and harsh, and to keep one foot inside that nice quiet introvert world to protect themselves. Unfortunately, people who aren't strongly introverted view this as being somehow evasive, even rude.

    I wish I had some great words of wisdom to help, but I'm afraid I still learning to manage my face. People often interpret my being quiet/reflective to recharge my batteries as being antisocial, and my explanation of "No, I'm not angry I just really want to be alone right now doesn't come across any better".

    My INFJ has the classic "Ni face", which is generally inexpressive & sometimes appearing stern, in pain ( the INFJ "martyr face" ), or just outright blank. He does smile & show expression at times, but even other people largely regard his face as impassive. In close company his face can really light up, but it's not typical. I realize how significant it was when we first met that by the end of the evening his expression towards me was downright glowing at times.

    My aunt identifies as INFJ, but I see her more as eNFJ because she is very expressive. I know it's not the perfect way to type someone, but the consistency of other Ni-dom to be impassive makes her the odd one out, whereas ENFJs usually come across as consistently expressive.
