    Default Expressiveness and Excitedness

    My SEE friend repeatedly asked me yesterday what it would take to get me excited (which in his terms meant doing something crazy and being loud about it) and it made me reflect upon the fact that most of the time I don't feel "excited" and I am rarely very outwardly expressive. I feel like my ISTp roommates are even more expressive than I am.

    Which type(s) do you guys think are the least expressive and/or get the least excited about things?

    hah. My probably-SLE friend always wants me to be more excited about things. However, I am externally excited (or I project excitement) about all sorts of things... it just takes a lot to get me really excited, and I pretty much go from superficial to obsessed with very little in-between.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    You remind me of an ESI boyfriend I once had. I liked him so well though. He was very stable and solid, emotionally. He was always up for activities and would often suggest them himself but never loud or uproarious. I had heeps of subdued fun with him.

    Usually chill, but I've seen LSE, SLE-Ti and LSI all get pretty excited & expressive over things they enjoy. Oh and IEI-Ni also (me).

    Well, I know I don't often get really excited. One of the guys I work with always tells me he wants me to walk in and make an appearance (I think he's LSI > SLE). Pretty much I only get giddy when I'm in a new, informal sitch (edit: with people I kinda know), haven't had much sleep, or I'm drunk. Gotta say though, any formality kills excitedness.

    Yea I know an IEI and SEI and they both seem to be able to turn their effusiveness on and off very effectively and appropriately.

    Out of that list SLE jumps out the most to me as being off. Most of the SLEs I know get very easily excited and expressive, granted you have to figure out certain topics or activities that really bring it out.

    Yea I have to be with people I know and feel comfortable in my surroundings. Alcohol definitely helps too haha.

    I agree. I've never seen my SLI mom get excited in that sense (though she has been perky upon finding something terrific in a gardening magazine.) ILIs wouldn't pay much attention to a green sun, but I've seen one get somewhat crazy a couple times with an SEE.

    ILIs have a secret crazy side. It is just buried very far down there and can only be seen by those with whom the ILI is extremely close.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.
