    Default Smiling and T/F

    Logicals smile with their mouth closed. Ethicals show their teeth

    Is this just bullshit/a coincidence or it works?

    Well, I always smile with my teeth when I'm being ethical.

    I do bare my teeth when smiling a lot actually.

    Half the time when I think I'm smiling, or at least looking vaguely happy, people ask me why I'm frowning or why I look so serious. It's annoying.

    I do sometimes show teeth when I smile, but only when it's a genuine, unconscious grin caused by something funny or awesome happening, not a deliberate "smile for the camera" smile.

    I'm the queen of big cheesy grins, smirks and half-smiles. I'm generally a happy person, and it shows. Shows when I'm angry too. In my observations, it's often the introverted ethicals that show the least exuberance in their smiles, obviously with exceptions.

    I don't think it's necessarily true, although ethical types are probably more aware of being happy or sad, so they might show it more. Avoiding a full smile may occur because one really isn't that happy overall, or because one's too worried about showing wrinkles. (Some people think they look better when they don't smile, which often is at odds with what people around them think.)

    Curiously, in the Filatova pictures, all the extraverts smile, and all the introverts frown, except for the SEIs who sort of smirk.

    I do think smiling vs. not smiling may cause people to mistype a person. This is also similar to other superficial traits; for example, if someone has long, soft hair and is smiling, people are more likely to think that person's an ethical type, whereas if the person has short, angular hair and wears glasses and doesn't smile, people will more likely think the person is a logical type.

    I don't know myself what I look like when I smile, I don't pay any attention to it.

    There was a thread about this earlier, and I was told it's mostly lips closed.
    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.

    I almost always have my lips closed when smiling unless I'm SUPER happy for some reason. My SEI dad also smiles with his mouth shut and so does my IEI brother.

    I smile with my teeth, but I used to have a discoloration on one tooth, and until that was fixed I smiled with my mouth closed.

    My husband doesn't smile much, but he generally would keep his mouth closed I think. Unless he was being obnoxious or something and then he'd make a fake cheesy grin.

    My daughter shows her very widely spaced buck teeth, and every time I find myself wondering how much braces cost these days.

    Oh yeah, and my other daughter doesn't have teeth yet, and doesn't smile much. No data available.

    right there with ya. My twin daughters are almost 10 and have only a few more baby teeth to lose before we start thinking about braces.
