The perceiver is at fault for reading negativity into it, according to Lisa Feldman Barrett, psychologist on Youtube: watch?v=whWbVc6vUhg. So ISTJs are like Switzerland?

I watched the video ages ago, and have been thinking about it.  I agree with her take on it to a point, but, also, it’s pretty clear that some people look angrier than others when completely relaxed, and it also is possible that this is type related, because muscle tension is type related.  (There’s probably also a genetics component, because facial features.)
