    Default How different types act when nervous around other people

    How have you noticed different types acting when nervous around other people? I'm thinking of situations like job interviews, meeting people they want to impress, first dates, etc. For example, one similarity I've noticed among SLEs is avoiding a lot of direct or prolonged eye contact while their eyes dart everywhere. Among SLIs I've noticed that when nervous they look down and seem extremely serious and business-like.

    Types when nervous in social situations:

    ESE - get extra sassy, which can come off as bitchy (I've only seen this w one ESE, but I saw it several times)
    LII
    SEI
    LII

    EIE -
    LSI
    IEI
    SLE - avoid a lot of direct or prolonged eye contact while their eyes dart everywhere; get aggressive if they feel threatened

    LIE
    ESI
    ILI - avoid eye contact and tend to move away physically when intimidated
    SEE - talk about how they are nervous, but don't really show it much imo

    LSE
    EII
    SLI - look down, avoiding eye contact; seem extremely serious and business-like.
    IEE - talk super fast, and way too much

    Depends on the impression that I want to make and the person and how they come off to me. Every person is different. I notice around someone who I think is attractive I tend to look down and not make much eye contact because I feel self conscious. I start thinking "I know I don't look that great. I wish I had nicer hair etc" I start getting critical of my physical appearance.

    If I'm around an sli I know that they accept me fully. I love them so I'll start acting goofy and zany and get them to laugh and tease.

    oh, i've seen SLEs eyes darting everywhere before, and i wondered about that. i thought it could be enneagram related or maybe a Se-subtype thing or something, but it was always a bit of mystery for me. i'm not really sure whether it's being directly related to being "nervous around other people", however, it probably could also be, beyond other things, a sign of nervousness in certain circumstances? i've seen some SEEs who drift around with their eyes a bit similar to that. also, IxEs who are very strongly on the Ne side have this twitchy quality about their demeanor and their gaze .
