    Those EELS are something ELSE.

Because to me, everything is tied to that original thought, and I just keep going and going.

    I also do the editing after posting. And, it's because it's hard for me to read/correct in the writing-enabled post format, I like to read my post as it'd appear in the thread, and then it's easier for me to read/pick up my mistakes.

    Not a Ti-dom/aux but I relate to all of the above. Ne madness in my case and wanting to explain everything carefully. I also edit after posting.

    I also think writing well, in an organized manner, is a learned skill. I do better with word limits because as far back as I can remember, I would be the last person handing in my exam and would continue writing until the moderator had to leave. I will never be concise without word limits but I am better organized than before. I use outlines now, starting with bullet points, then fill in paragraphs and then rewrite portions for better segues and flow.

    i don't think i do. i write nonstop til i hit the word quota then rearrange concepts, making paragraphs the main unit. as long as the paragraph is solid (enough), everything else will work itself out.

    that's only in theory. in actuality i never even write.

    ^^ Ha! Yes, that too!

    All those great things we've written in our heads... or vaguely summarized, I guess is the better phrase.

    oh god i've totally noticed this about Ti

    Not to rag on it too much, but.. you know.

    It often takes a certain amount of simplification and organization to get your point across effectively.

    And that's where Te steps in

    There's this, too. If I don't think my thoughts are conveyed correctly, then I'll often edit my posts after the fact.. depending on whether that sort of direct conveyance is necessary.

    I've been told that I have a huge need to be understood

    I do this a lot as well. I often revise what I have written several times ... refining and fine tuning it. For longer pieces, I've found that creating a rough outline of what I want to write about helps a bit. I create section titles with small abstracts of what I want those sections to cover. Of course, I refine and fine tune this as well before starting with the actual writing.

    If I could tell you half the crap I jump into knowing...hoping that the moons will align correctly and an answer will appear. If not I tend to wander aimlessly hoping and waiting for them to eventually line up. Recently I have been writing down these wanderings and it pretty much equates to a garbled wall of text like an unfinished project. Somehow I actually manage to use this with some success in this world. How I do this is another garbled wall that needs to be unmangled..
    this is exactly why i think john Locke was ISTP. Try reading him sometime if you haven't, his friggin philosophy works are sooo wandering about verbally. Not aimless overall, they're just difficult to read for that reason- like an owner's manual to political philosophy without an index or any kind of arrangement. but people assume all philosophers must be N doms so no one gave my hypothesis much merit.

    as for me, i only go round about when i havent a clear grasp/understanding of the issues/questions at hand. once i do i'm quite coherent, or so i think

    I like to keep my writing brief. Bringing out the ideas in real life on the other hand...
