I, for one can be an expressive person, but I don't overly express myself in public a lot of the time (compared to Fe-Doms, and due to the fact that I am also pretty much in my head and analysing/observting things more than I am expressing myself/socialising with the people in my environment.
That being said, I can easily absorb all the emotions within the room and can also know how to impact/influence the atmosphere within the room. But when I pretend to be super stoic and not let any of my emotions out/impact the environment, I become emotionally constipated. Everything builds up inside me easily and then when I eventually give up and let it all out, I become a hellish hurricane of expression that no-one wants to be around.
It can take me a few hours to revert back to my usual, calm self. The imbalance makes me very off-centered both inside and out. I forget where I am, and what's going on inside my mind. I find it hard to concentrate and go back into the state of mind that I was previously in.
Do any of you relate? If so, how can I just let myself be more comfortable expressing myself at the given time, without coming across as vulnerable/feminine? I don't mind doing it because it comes naturally, but I don't want to come across as a 'drama queen' or someone who's seeking attention, when I'm really not. I want to interact with the environment, and I also want to interact with the people and read them better.
