    Eh, it's an old witticism that I couldn't help but bring up.

    Masks are not a problem until you BECOME the mask. Or, The Mask, even.



    Although, I think people would notice more if you become The Mask rather than any other particular mask. Cause, you know, then your face would be green and you'd be behaving as a cartoon and such.

    Please excuse me. I blame the heat.

    Sad example of fake NT trying to pass for SP.

    No, but close -- INTJ trying to pass as an ENTP.

    The heat brings out the worst in me. I plan to spend the rest of my summer in the refrigerator.

    I'd say everyone but compulsive liars and con artists, or basically those who are actively trying to deceive. Even if you're dressing yourself up to something which doesn't come naturally or easily to you, that action is still you.

    So... if nothing is fake except these cases, why do I feel like bad for faking a smile?

    I don't know. I sometimes feel bad too.

    I think I would rather wish I could just not modify anything at all and let people know exactly what I am at the moment... but either I don't feel it's the best thing for them or I don't trust them enough to just let the negative stuff be visible. (I feel like they might misjudge me based on anything negative, if I don't have it clarified somehow.)

    Too much self-consciousness / self-awareness.
    And too much anxiety over what others think.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Maybe because it's bad for your health?

    Or so says the Germans.

    I've seen people who obviously don't like me but fake a smile whenever they see me. Those types make my incredibly uncomfortable.

    On the other hand, one of the easiest ways to start smiling for real is to start with a fake smile.

    Makes sense. Oh, I would hate such a job. If a boss tells me to smile, it is like human rights violation to me. Buy buy, PR jobs.
