    We should do a comparison/contrast of OCD and pedanticism. (Is that a word? )

    I'm doubting that iNtuitive dominants would be the most pedantic. They view things from so many angles, focusing on the larger context. Details are often wearisome. Maybe Si dominants first and then Ti/Te dominants? What say ye?

    Let's go to the lit...
    I've placed quotes in a very approximate suggestion from most to least pedantic based on the info available in the text. The INTs maybe should be listed ahead of the ISJs. I am not sure about that.

    ISTJs are easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments...The grim determination of the ISTJ vindicates itself in officiation of sports events, judiciary functions, or an other situation which requires making tough calls and sticking to them.

    I hope not. It sounds like something someone should go to jail for.

    It's better to refer to the literature over anecdotal info, because people can easily be borderline types, atypical representations of type, or simply mistyped. In reading through the descriptions again, it isn't clear whether INTs or ISJs tend more towards pedanticism. It maybe depends on how it is being defined.

    As far as my snippet quotes are concerned, people should really link over to TypeLogic Home Page to read through the entire profiles. Those segments i chose attempted to select the most pedantically relevant information from each profile.

    Probably.

    If you want something "according to spec," the ISTJ is about as solid as it goes, as well as ISFJs who are organizing/calculating things.

    But INTPs, as you note, make good linguists because of their obsession with nuance and context (which are more abstracted than the sort of material the ISTJ is scanning for flaws).

    INFPs tend to be more precise about feeling states, but in terms of technical information will "gloss over nuances" if it is inappropriate to communicating a point to their students. (This can make INTPs cringe.)

    I really don't think so. They're too vague and generalized in their thinking to be good linguists. Ne is too random/chaotic to be used effectively for that purpose.

    So do INTP's.

    There are Si, Se, Ni, Fe, Te and Ti ways of being pedantic.

    This leaves out ISFPs, INFPs, ENFPs and ENTPs.
    The answer is among the rest.

    I'm a pedant but not with such formalities as is mentioned here. Pedantry I'd think could be part of any profile. Surely the personality type merely defines some of what style the pedantry is in?
    Semantics is order.
    Order is by nature definition.
    Rule is not order. Rule is abour power.

    The rule of hairsplitting is the rule of the academia. The rule of status.

    Hairsplitting is the antithesis of semantics.
    Semantics is about what is.
    Hairsplitting is about what is not.

    Order is the mirror of the cause (effect) and the mirror of the effect (cause).

    Hairsplitting takes time. Order is instantaneous.

    Without rules/ guidelines (whatever you want to call them), there is no order.

    Being left alone to do what you like is not order it is anarchy. It's just anarchy that has less chance of affecting others.

    Hairsplitting is when you try and be overly precise and pedantic. It is academic but there again what technical discussion is not?

    Once you have eliminated all other possibilities then whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the answer.
    I see no reason to split the techniques. It's only a matter of preference, context and expediency.

    So there is no order, no line to follow? If one is the mirror of the other then both appear simultaneously.

    Order is the effect. It's cause depends upon what is being brought to order and what is ordering it. Mirrors are reaction only, no organisation.

    If order is instantaneous then what is chaos? Besides to find the order sometimes you have to split hairs.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
