Why do some introverted people act so serious and rarely smile?

Some people assume if someone smiles a lot and is outgoing, they're happy, but if they're introverted and sorta serious and don't smile much, they assume they're unhappy. So why do some introverted people rarely smile?

  • Lots of reasons... introverts aren't fulfilled by social interaction, so they don't see much point in giving a fake smile or fake hello to everyone who crosses their path. They also aren't interested in talking to everyone, so they may adopt facial expressions that seem "standoffish" or "unhappy" to prevent other people from trapping them in random conversations. A lot of it is probably unconscious, and it's rarely a sign of true unhappiness or dislike of other people. Most introverts are perfectly happy, and have many wonderful, deep relationships with others, but they really like to be left alone too.

  • Because they're introverted

  • If there's someone around to see their facial expressions, then the introvert is not alone. So they aren't happy. If they are on their own, then they are happy.

  • Introverts are oftenthoughtful people, and unless they're thinking about something funny, they won't be laughing.

    They don't laugh just to please someone they are talking to, either. This sets them apart from most people, who unconsciously laugh to try to please people they are with. Often this isn't sincere laughter; they don't really think the other person is witty or amusing.
