    Default Deer in headlights

    I've often seen IEI's being compared to deers around here. Do any other IEI's get this comparison 24/7 like I do? At work they're always telling me that I look like a deer in headlights.

    Today -

    Boss: You have that deer in headlights look again, haha. You always do that!

    coworkers: she does!

    Me: lol, really? I guess that's just how I look. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

    coworker: It's not a bad thing. Deers are very beautiful... they're very stupid though; well, really stupid actually, but they're still beautiful.

    Me: Wow... I guess that means I look beautiful yet stupid.

    Everyone: pretty much LOL

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

    I haven't used this to describe the IEIs I have known but I can see it.

    haha, at least I can easily play dumb. It get's me out of traffic tickets. People will never suspect me of evil... bwahah. Never the less, I still wish I had a naturally strong & confident gaze. Working on that, actually. I'd rather have people respect me than feel empathetic towards me.

    On another note, people have often told me that I have hypnotizing eyes. This random asian guy once jumped out at me and said "WOAH! YOUR EYES! They like jaguar! It makes me think you going to pounce & eat me all up!!" lmao. My boyfriend is also convinced that my eyes put him under some sort of spell. Weird.

    I sound so vain right about now.

    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.

    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.
