    Fi-doms; How expressive are you?

    Just like the title says.

    I'm just curious about this topic because of how often I see stuff about Fi-doms being poker-faced and/or "emotionless" on the surface. I can understand that, given how private we can be about how we feel (myself included) but regardless, I'm still pretty expressive, and I tend to be quite animated - especially around people I'm comfortable with. I tend to amuse people because of it. lol
    Also, I have an INFP friend, and the first thing I noticed when we met was how friendly and bouncy they were - I could've easily mistaken them for an ENFP. They were very warm - all smiles and hugs. <3

    ExFPs could join too. It also might be interesting to know if there are any ExFPs who aren't very expressive (though I have yet to meet any who aren't, hehe.)

    I'm more impressive than expressive.

    I do not relate to "Fi dom", but I am INFP by dichotomy and not expressive at all.

    I'm less verbally and physically expressive than the people I'm close to who have Fe. Usually I know how I feel and I can get quite expressive, even clingy, but sometimes I feel I have a hard time putting all of my feelings into words. I do go through periods where I'm very outwardly expressive and where I express myself more subtly. It depends on my mood and what I want to do. Generally, the more comfortable I am with someone, the more expressive I'll be, and the more comfortable I am showing not only my strengths, but also my flaws. If I don't get good vibes from you, don't expect me to open up much of myself, if any.

    I can relate. I'll know exactly how I feel but words are not my forte - which is why I often let my actions do the expressing.

    It depends on my mood and what I want to do.
    ...Also this. I do think when I'm out in public minding my own business I'm much less expressive, because there's no reason for me to express much if I'm just walking down the street. Of course, around people I'm comfortable with I'll be a lot more animated (still more with actions and facial expressions than words though.)

    Good to know. I was hoping some ExFP would chime in. After all, we can't stereotype all of you as hyper party animals. lol
    And you're right. It's a lot easier to type someone when they express themselves.

    I suppose I do have that reserved poker face of neutrality when I am not entirely engaged. When talking to me most people I don't know that well they will likely see this aspect of me. I get the impression that I invoke a little bit of stoic reservation. People would probably not be able to tell how I am feeling that easily from my face alone. There will times that when in a group scenario in which everyone laughs at something (that is funny to them) I prefer not to laugh if I don't find it funny. It of course I am out of touch with the emotional atmosphere of the group. My mind goes 'I laugh when I personally find things funny, why must my expression of emotion merge with the crowd?'. When I am excited about something (could be a conversation I am very into), my Ne is activated and my face lights up, becoming much more animated. I suppose I express myself better through actions. Whenever I get irritated, I'm not sure if people notice. If they do notice, they don't point it out. I don't like crying in public and I don't break down until I am in private most of the time. I need time by myself to process and feel my sense of deep sadness on my own. Internally my emotions could be simmering but on the outside nobody would know. I do indeed feel quite intense emotions inside of me what chances are you may never know from my face.

    Not Fi dominant, but certainly not Fe in any way. I'm pretty emotional with my closest friends and family members. I'd estimate, compared to the average person, I am probably more emotionally expressive. However, I don't talk about my emotions very often. I just do very much express them, mostly in my face.

    My brothers an intj - he appears more extroverted than I do with family- I think the stereotype of T vs F or I vs E is quite absurd more so when cognitive functions are applied, we're all individuals
