I was at work the other day and had this conversation with a coworker:
Him: You look pissed.
Him: You aren't?
Me: No...this is my natural expression. I have to actually try to look happy all the time.
Him: That's kind of weird, but whatever.
So yeah, I identify with the description of female INTJ, lol.
I've also been the subject of many jokes about working on the docks and being on the phone with my bookie etc. and got the nickname Bruiser even though I'm almost never involved in any kind of physical conflict.
This girl seemed to think I was scowling at a clock at work. I told her I was just looking at the time. She said I looked angry.
But now that doesn't seem to happen anymore. I guess it's because I usually have this smirk on my face most of the time.
I got stared down by two INTJ's & it definitely felt like that. It almost knocked me off my feet (in a good way ). I even tried to have a stare down, lol.
I stare back while getting ready to put on a show. Then I break eyecontact to focus on doing something so incredibly silly, that they cannot help but smile...ever so faintly. I admit some of them can take forever to smile..but once they do I know we'll be fine
I intimidate everyone I meet, even authority figures, like cops or my boss. I've even had cops apologize for pulling me over and then walk away with their head down after deciding not to write me a ticket. I do look pretty serious and intense, but I'm really just paying and focusing on the moment. I absorb everything I see and hear and use that information when needed. I know I also come across as judging, but I'm simply noticing as much as I can. I'm actually very accepting and forgiving as long as I can understand why people do what they do.
It's much easier to talk to me on the phone than it is in person...
