    I portray the role of a mute young man that smiles until his face hurts. I come off as so shy that people might think I'm weird sometimes. One guy actually told me that once, but he was also the least imaginative person I'd ever met in my life and kind of a douchebag.

    ES--. Only with strangers and only when in a good mood.

    I vary greatly. Sometimes I might act as though I've known them for years, thus being quite open, yet other times I can be very reserved. I've no idea why this is, but that's how I tend to be. I think the latter moreso than the former, though the former is not entirely rare. Then again me meeting strangers is a rare occurrence anyway, so perhaps this should be taken with a small portion of salt. A grain sounds like an optimally sized portion.

    It's very odd to me I can be one of the most talkative people in a group of strangers but the quietest with people i know well.

    Probably ISTj most of the times.
    Sometimes ESTp if there's lots of Ni, sometimes ISFp if I'm tired but in a good mood, sometimes ISTp to deltas.

    I don't know what type I convey. It depends a lot on the people/group I meet. I can appear rather extroverted and goofy even enthusiastic. I can also appear highly introverted and detached. It depends on whether I have a "fitting in" experience or not. This experience happens in an instance I meet someone or step in the the same space with a group. If I don't get the "fitting in" experience I just detach myself. I might do an effort here and there. Try to connect with specific people in the group. Usually though I just know it instantly whether I want to be there or not and if I don't want to be there then I will appear very introverted.

    Probably INTj. Like superficial nerdy and Daria, science-y. Underneath I'm really not like that... but that is the first impression. Somebody with good book-smarts but can't catch a football. I can manipulate teachers quite well by playing the "innocent tortured boy-next-door act" but as my enemies can you, it's not really me hehe.

    Interesting, I just had a discussion about this recently. I had grown comfortable being around a group of people, I was more natural, more myself. They were kind of surprised. They commented how I am completely contradicting their impression of myself. That I was talkative, engaging. They had me pegged as being a reclusive loner. So I'd say because of me taking a while to get to know somebody before being able to engage them makes me appear reclusive and withdrawn, introvert, logical, and not valuing Fe.

    However, thinking about it, there are exceptions to this. If I am, for example, meting a new person in the company of somebody I know, where the other person is a good friend of theirs, and it's in a nice environment, then I tend to be more myself and tend to be talkative and engaging. Then I give the impression of being open to new ideas, as I tend to spend most of my time with them engaged in a discussion of things I find interesting, amusing, but not through having a sense of humor, but through being able to entertain people without realizing it, zany. I'd say in such situations I give the impression of being talkative and enthusiastic, extrovert and logical.

    Depends. Most often quiet and smiling. Especially in a group of extroverts. Though if everyone's quiet, I would attempt to get the conversation rolling. Sometimes when I'm making a real effort to be more outgoing, someone'll say "boy, you're quiet, aren't you." Meh. Here's a medal for you. But it really depends on what mood I'm in at the particular time. I can be overly familiar with strangers, not in a creepy way lol - in an 'avoiding formalities', playful way.

    ESE for the most part. When I'm really unsure of how people will take me I probably come off as SEI instead, though.

    sometimes people who have recently met me have said i seem very formal and polite. i often come across probably as more intellectual than i am. on the flip side, i've noticed that depending on my mood people might see me as impish, and not knowing me, might not know that it isn't something i'll go too far with.

    now that i'm on years and years of sleep deprivation, i think that some people who meet meet me might think i'm inarticulate. if that's not a wake up call, i don't know what is.

    i think some people might also perceive me as helpless because sometimes people will take over what i'm doing. i'm still thinking about that one. in a work setting this happens with customer service stuff and random things like opening stuff or flattening a box. i think i need to find ways to make myself look more competent because i guess i feel that if people start seeing me as incapable that this won't benefit me later. sigh. i just want to get away.

    anyway i don't know. i guess i think that people usually see me as an introverted person, regardless of all of this stuff. introverted, serious, polite. so maybe dom, at first? if they realize i'm not a "people person," dom?

    really, i think, in many workplaces, there is little tolerance for irrationality.
