) If you are constantly "on a different page" you will probably not be engaged with the rest of society, which does not preclude you aren't able to achieve more by yourself than 5 regular people.Even if you don't agree with my justifying "Bitchy Resting Face" as being akin to "INTP Face" (typically we don't look bitchy, but angry might exists in incompatible environments; and yes brooding behind the neurosis is true anger.) The problem is when people would rather deny what you are proven to perform at and think what applies to themselves and regular people is somehow acceptable criteria for evaluating your performance; as if you didn't exist. It's not exclusive to INTP, I'd say it's more an INxx thing, but physical looks still play a major part of how people react to it.Myself, I get "you look angry" all the time and I know I intimidate people with what is my most neutral look.
People have a harder time relating to a perceived absence of emotion, and in fact may assume the worst, when in fact the person in question just doesn't emote much.
Dominance It has caused me a lot of grief over the years because strangers often react to this perception by fronting an aggressive posture/attitude.
I'm really kind natured IRL and it would have been nice to have a face to match.
I was reading an article: Do you have a happy or angry resting face?
It may affect your career They seem to loop a study on perception of competence alongside perceived need for dominance: "Facial expressions demonstrating competence (A) and dominance (B), ranging left to right from lower than average, average, and higher than average." Do people generally take INTP melancholy traits--and unassuming competence--to be "unpredictable" or untrustworthy if you sometimes don't downplay what you've done when driven to do something?
The assumption is someone "undecided" with what to do with their lives could appear otherwise as incapable?The reasoning being is that you could go your entire life not being driven purely on the precept that you would "rather be doing other things," much like a student being forced to "like" school (which isn't really going along with their natural predisposition to prefer to do other things, now is it?Meanwhile I knew a very attractive INTJ woman accused of "bitchy resting face" quite a lot and despite the giant rock on her ring finger, men hit on or attempted to chat her up all the time.Some even tried to give her gifts she never asked for, which creeped her out.Seeing this however, other women tended not to trust her and she had few female friends. I don't think "bitchy resting face" or "asshole face" is an apt description though.A more accurate way to encapsulate this idea is the "blank face." People who are not very emotionally expressive tend to have this (INTPs for sure).
