    Well at least it's better to look stupid and be smart than to look smart and be stupid

    I've never had any one tell me I'm doing a deer in the headlights look (that I can remember), but my one friend told me if she could pick an animal that fits my personality, it would be a deer (like you also described in your OP).

    I guess it's because I'm timid at times, and I kind of just stand there? LOL I don't know. People have pointed out to me that I hunch my body naturally when I'm standing/walking, too, so I guess that adds to the "timid" image. I have to concentrate on it to make myself walk with "normal" posture.

    It's that wide-eyed shocked expression, like a startled deer. Other types have different looks, like a cocked eyebrow or a quizzical gaze.

    Yeah, the deer in headlights Ixxp look.





    Most Ixxps I know have it, though usually more prominent in INxps.

    ...I asked this before. On a few occasions I caught them staring at me with this look, I don't like that look...

    I don't think this is too bad... deers are beautiful animals.
    But it must be pretty annoying if you're getting this all the time, though.

    Could you girls please stop it, you all know how much I love cute animals, and hot, mesmerizing eyes, and timid bunnies and fuck. I've already got Cardinal OK, she's already more than enough for one world full of horny guys and it's just one man here putting a lid on her overcharged libido, so you know I can't satisfy all of you.

    Just kidding, come here for free hugs and pets
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."

    I get it often too. I figured it was because I look kind of vulnerable, like a deer in the headlights, helpless to act.

    never specifically "deer in headlights" but I've been told I look sad and happy at the same time (on numerous occasions) and also that I look like I'm "lost in my head" and have had people ask me what I'm thinking as if it were some great mystery. haha "what's going on in there???" Oh I didn't realize I had to be deep all the time. so sorry.

    I've felt deer-in-headlights look cross my face a couple of times when strangers have stared me in the eye. Oh yeah & when I see pics of myself caught off guard too.

    i was bored and i was looking at piles and piles of old newspapers from the '90s. my friend goes "what are you looking at?", i innocently say, "nothing", he says, "it was so intense though...that look on your face".
    WTF? intense? i was just looking at newspapers...
