    When I was a teenager, another girl told me that I laugh too much. She said it was annoying. That made me self-conscious about it for a while but I just couldn't stop so I just said to hell with her and forgot about it.

    The older I get the funnier things get too.

    I also have never had the "why are you so quiet?" question. Mostly because I tend to gravitate towards quiet people (I like them a lot) and I guess I talk more than they do. When I get around really talkative people, I tend to not talk and listen to them.

    I have asked the question to certain people before in the past though.

    Better than "why won't you shut up?", isn't it? I've heard them both (and that I'm too loud), but in a more friendly tone. It never seemed like an accusation to me. I've also heard that I laugh too much, but then again I hear often that one of my good features is my laugh.

    So, I dont bother to think about these things too much.

    I get "Why are you so quiet?" and "Why don't you smile?" all the time. In case anyone really wants the answer, I'm quiet because I don't have anything I feel like communicating right now, and I'm probably thinking about something interesting that I'd rather not talk about until I get it all worked out in my head. I'm not smiling because it's inauthentic to smile unless I feel like it, and I'd rather not be fake about my feelings. If I must smile to put you at ease, I will, because I aim to please. I just don't like being forced to choose between being honest and being kind, because I'd really like to be both.

    Because I have nothing to say on this tediously boring subject that won't be skipped over anyway...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Yeah me too, why don't you smile, why don't you talk. I don't have anything to say to them.o.O...Funny though I ask my enfp sister the opposite: why are you always talking to me? I want to be alone.She actually keeps talking xD....

    No one's ever asked, then again I sometimes warn people of it out of politeness.
    Some have thought I just don't want to talk.
    Once I received a comment that "I know you well enough not to get insulted by the quietness." Uhh? But that was my aunt, who is really extroverted as a person..

    Yeah, appearantly being quiet comes across as "I think i'm too good to talk to you..a.k.a snobbism" I went to do an internship in a restaurant once and well since I barely talked and came from a relatively good school they took it an as me being a snob or being disgusted my the kitchen o.o...

    Ditto! You just summed it up perfectly for me right there, that's exactly how I feel!

    I am mostly quiet because it upsets me when people are loud. Plus calm almost always seems the logical approach.
