    No .. I only have communication issues with unhealthy people and they can be N or S.

    Well, I don't have great social skills to begin with, but I've never really had trouble understanding anyone in real life unless they're talking too quiet. Then I have to shout, "WHAT?? I CAN'T HEAR YOU."

    However, on the forums I have a hard time understanding Victor. I suppose I could figure out his posts if I really TRIED, but I'll usually just move on. I've heard sensors here say they have no trouble understanding him, so maybe my IQ is too low.

    Also some of the Ti posts are too long for my patience. I usually skim them for the main idea. That's not an S/N issue though, it's a tl;dr issue.

    LOL!

    I was telling ISTP staff that he writes novels where something more concise would suffice. Funny the ISTP manager praised his long winded explanations. Interesting this may be attributed to Ti.

    What frustrates me is when people don't get to the point or throw in all this information that is not relevant to the issue at hand. I'll get customers who sound like they want assistance, so I'll start giving assistance but really they just want to chit-chat.

    Sometimes I have problems when something isn't presented in a way that I learn best. For example, a boss or colleague explains to me about a project they want me to do and they spout out details that seem arbitrary and disconnected to me because they haven't even given me the big picture or the purpose yet.

    So, yes, I do admit to having significant problems when the communication isn't presented in a way that's compatible with my own thinking style, but I'm learning.

    Maybe I'm not an INTP after all.

    I sometimes have problems getting through Victors posts as well. Not all of them. Some I understand and find quite insightful. Others are like cryptic. Maybe its also an Ne vs. Ni thing. I think Victor has a more Ni style while I have a more Ne style.

    Some of the Ti posts I find tedious to read. Like you said, I think its mostly a tl;dr thing.

    Gah, i have sensotard moments all the time... but asides from those i can understand either s's or n's pretty well as long as there is a basic desire to communicate. Occaisionally i have difficulty getting through to sensors esp regarding abstract ideas, but usually fairly easily overcome. Certainly not extreme or excessive difficulty.

    Yuh, Vic is a bit like Shakespere in that sense... i get him (mostly)

    I hate the term "sensotard." It's called being absent-minded. I'm absent-minded all the time, but I'm still a sensor.
