    My forced smile is really bad. People sometimes get annoyed when they take a photo of me just because of my smile. When I force a smile they still tell me to smile. I'm the one who has to get my photo repeated the most times.

    Rather than smile broadly, I tend to suppress the smile. Almost smirkish in a way.

    Do you do this too?
    Pics anyone? I'll show you mine if you show me yours
    No, I don't do that...I go all the way. I use all kind of smiles including the kind in your picture, but the wide ones are well-represented. You're stunning in that pic btw.

    Wowpretty.

    I do something similar. Usually it makes me look either mildly embarrassed (example 1) or smarmy (example 2), but I like it better than my full smile (which is really broad and makes me look like a manticore).

    upon thinking about it more, i think the 5 laughing at the wrong jokes at the wrong times is where the suppression comes from.

    i remember talking to my friend about backwards laughing disorder when we were 17.

    now i just pollute the air with enough smiles and laughs and chuckles that i get away with nearly anything. i am just an oddball. but, at the same time, when it is too much focused on one other person, he or she will at times get uncomfortable with my amusement.

    Looks like a smile to me.

    Also, very pretty.

    The INTJ guy I know is a good smiler. It just takes something really good to make him smile. Otherwise it's totally forced.

    It's a great disservice to humanity for them to miss out on your smile.

    But, I do the same, my smiles turn the corners of my mouth down...but it's more out of amusement. As most pictures I find amusing, having to pose and stand still just looking into the lens. It seems silly. Silly is amusing.

    I don't have this "let's smile, yay!" attitude nowadays, so there's not much to suppress.
