    I thought it looked a lot like the pedophile smile.








    Coincidence!? YOU DECIDE!

    LOL.. if you only knew what was going on when that pic was taken. I don't think anyone would accuse me of being pedophile

    oh no.. i'm afraid i come across more "pedophile" than "amelie"..
    my smile says "i'm a bit shy, but not unpleasant."
    or
    "i don't like my teeth!"

    I really don't see a pattern...

    I do a smile something like this... closed mouth, looking down with the sideglance up & raised brows. I also tilt my head that way - I have a lot of photos at a similar angle & my family always says that's how I angle my head in person.

    I used to hide my mouth/face when I laughed/smiled too, but not anymore. Not quite as shy anymore, I guess. I have a rather big, goofy grin when I actually do laugh (thanks dad ), and I've been told I laugh with my whole body, even throw my head back a bit (thanks mom ). I definitely don't get that "sheepish" look.

    I normally make eye contact in conversation, except when I smile I look down and then maybe do a sideglance. I almost never touch people in conversation - I find that very awkward.

    And like a few here, I don't smile all that often. I'm often prompted to by people . When I do smile, it probably is a shy/nervous thing - something I've consciously adopted to offset the "aloof" vibes I give - or I'm actually laughing.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    No, I don't practice this. I did not really notice I do this.
    that description is so vague...

    It's been the opposite for me. I've never done it until about a couple years ago.

    Laughing is a whole other thing entirely. Mine has always been very hearty: my shoulders shake a bit, I too throw my head back a little, and if it's hilarious the laughing tears will come. Though, having picked up on the vibe of other INFPs here, I don't think that sort of appreciative, exuberant, open-mouthed laughter is typical. I may be wrong, I don't know, but I've always done it and am still very much INFP

    Hmm.. these 2 posts make me wonder. I don't laugh very often either.
    If I stay in half control , I end up almost hissing.
    But more often I don't and It's the same description .. when I do laugh, it's very hearty and I throw my head back and my body shakes and I often literally keel over.
    Maybe this is common??

    The smile I give to someone I pass on the street: Nervous, wide-eyed type that you give a dog you think may bite.

    Somebody compliments me: Sincere, modest grin.

    Laughing: Cover my mouth...

    Laughing hysterically: Crazy "I just escaped the mental hospital and I'm here to kill all of you." smile...

    WTF, INFPs can't have a monopoly on touching people while exposing them to creepy smiles! :steam:
    In Soviet Russia, people touch INFPs and make creepy smile!

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
