    "Do you ever laugh, INFP ? "

    So this happened to me during the last week of a job that I had decided to quit. It was a toxic job environment where the boss basically threatened everyone very often ("I'm gonna fire you ", "You're just stealing my money" ,
    "I'm gonna take disciplinary action if you don't do better"), even people that were on their FIRST day of working.

    So, because the 'emotional wheater' was set to this, I soon decided to completely shut off, not talking, not laughing, keeping communication to a minimum so that he couldn't attack me. Well, he started to complain that I needed to talk more, and the last day his secretary came to me and asked : "You never laugh, don't you?"

    And I coldly replied "No, not on the job"

    Now, I'm not working there anymore, but that question hit a sensitive spot I think, on the way people perceive us.
    I just had to take my emotional response out of the equation to survive in that environment, but the result was not the one I expected. They started to see me in a negative light somehow. But besides that, there was really nothing else they could accuse me of .

    Similar experiences ?
    Should we be 'less serious' ?

    Don’t let a toxic environment influence your view of yourself.

    I laugh a lot though. I make other people laugh a lot too. My sense of humor is one of the things I like best about myself.

    Happened to me once. Not-too-subtle people can mistake my intensity for harshness.
    I never focus like that when I interact with people, but such misjudgement could happen to someone looking at me while I'm working on a document, for instance.

    I am decidedly middle-aged. My mom recently looked at me and said "What's the matter?" to which I replied "I'm, um, thinking?" lol

    Resting b**** face I believe they now call it.

    Felt similarly my first year of high school. Didn't have an overbearing pressure, but I did feel out of my element and inadequate so I clammed up.

    I'm laughing too hard, but so rare.
    My hardest laugh ever was 8 years ago. I was watching Mr.Bean Holidays (Specially train station scene). XD

    The workplace that most of the introverted and HSPs types experience is emotionally hell, I have only loathing for the narcissistic control freaks who use other people as emotional blood bags to get their fix. Business, government, organized religion, ect attracts them like flies to a decaying carcass. To be happy one must distance themselves from what both drains and holds oneself down from being true and happy.
