    Facial expressions are a work out for me.

    That's why I keep at a straight face, and throw in a few laughs or smiles in there too once in a while.

    In terms of facial expressions, the NTs I know pretty much do exactly what I do - they emote appropriately around new people and/or people they really want to impress, but are much more stoic around friends and family. Surprisingly, the NT I've met who's best at this is my INTP dad. He is one of the most gifted schmoozers I've ever met.

    That's Fe for you. It's very good at knowing what others need to hear at any given time.

    I'm not an NT (or maybe I am) and I kind of relate a little bit sometimes. I try not to fake anything, but people have called me unflinching at times. I just can't fake genuine enthusiasm, and since it's a rare event in social interaction unless I'm with close friends, people tend to get intimidated or weary of me sometimes.

    Exactly, I guess it all comes down to the basics. Who would you rather talk to; A person who communicates with a monotone voice and displays zero enthusiasm or someone who shows an obvious interest in the topic of discussion. Perhaps this is an old fear of rejection still lingering in my spine.

    I'm not sure why I'm like this, either it's because of my extremely high NT values or the fact that I'm a nutcase (The two probably correlate somehow). The scales are even at this point, so I guess I'll be playing the waiting game for now.

    Faking a genuine physical expression is hard, keeping them back is easy. I learned that early on.

    ^ My basic expressions... seriously. I'm either Happy, or pissed. It's usually almost always Happy, or on the path of of comfortable peace.

    I do relate to what you are saying though.

    I am fully capable of smiles and laughter, though it's sometimes out of place (I think I might be an Aspie or close to) but it really depends. And not just on my mood. Sometimes I'll be happy with a blank face. Sometimes I'll be sad but wearinga happy face. Sometimes I have a straight face when I'm depressed or upset and sometimes, when I look happy, I am very happy. I never pout, frown or make any decidedly unhappy expressions.
