    Unhappy Why are you so quiet?

    I am so sick of this question, it's usually asked like an accusation. It's like if you're not shooting your mouth off all the time and saying something and trying to get the attention everybody gets all concerned and sooner or later one of them asks THE question. It is so irritating because usually they are interrupting a very good train of thought. Does any other INFP's or other introverts get this?!

    I usually get asked "Why are you gripping that knife so vigorously while staring into my eyes and twitching?" but yeah, that too.

    I get it all the time in offline life, like a broken record from hell.

    Yeah, this annoys me too, though I haven't really encountered it since high school. It's as if it's my responsibility to be talking as much as the other person.

    I've always gotten that. People have always been telling me to smile, too. I should put a smile on their faces.

    Because I'm comfortable with silence.

    Always get the combination of "quiet" and "smile" as in your so quiet I don't know if you're ok unless you smile resulting in a demand for me to grin like a fool :steam:

    I get the smile thing too, quite regularly and then like a "good little" INFP I oblige cause I don't want to hurt the persons feelings. Sometimes it gets me extremely cranky though and that smile IS NOT happening, I just ignore the person and act like I never heard but 9 times out of 10 I smile though. I need some backbone!
