    Yeah, I'm very expressive too. I tend to speak with my entire body, but most significantly with my hands and rapid facial changes.
    I wasn't aware about the hand-thing before a teacher at a doctoral presentation course pointed to my way of gesticulating as being in synch with what I was talking about and thus great at conveying my points to the audience.

    He said that one of the most frequent problems (apart from lifeless immobility) in the presentations he saw, was when both hands kept flying around aimlessly in front of the speaker's face and chest, thus both distracting the audience from the actual speech content and building a communicative wall of 'fending off' gestures between speaker and audience.

    I find it rather annoying in a "I share three letters with these guys?" sort of way. It's not that they're more expressive. They express differently. To the casual observer an INFP and ISTJ have a lot more in common than an INFP and ENFP, and he might even be right in a lot of ways.

    I have 10,001 facial expressions. Unless I am specifically manipulating my guise because it is not natural for me to respond in a desired way, I look like I feel.

    I have always been moved by the Neil Young line "..it's these expressions I never give, that keep me searchin' for a heart of gold.."

    it's so true. I can actually relate my contentment by how well my face has been worked out that day. If I don't exercise it in many ways I notice the rigidity (EG not smiling or laughing or relaxing, I can feel tension in my face). Likewise if I am not stimulated in a serious way enough my look just becomes kinda droopy or melancholy/bored. That being said most of the time I can be found with a smile

    with me and my herd o' enfps-Very animated facial gestures, eye movements, an inability to hide expressions. You can see what we are thinking. Lots of hand movements.

    Our voices are often very animated and we can be loud. We laugh a lot.

    Most of these folks are older so have learned to chill for short periods of time. In meetings though this weird thing happens-they all get slack jawed when they are thinking and can be real blunt and pointed. We all Ne hop around.

    The best was a meeting with an INTJ, about four ENFPs, an IXTJ, and an ESTJ. The ESTJ was not really on the same page as the rest of us...

    It doesnt matter how hard I try and hide what I feel I think people can see it.
