    If I'm in the mood to read Victor, I can absorb some meaning from his writings. I have no idea if what I absorb has anything to do with what he was thinking when he wrote it though.

    I thought absent minded meant basically not paying attention. I was paying attention, but reaching a wildly incorrect conclusion.

    @ DG - oh, i'm sorry. kinda like stalemate said... i use it in reference to moments where someone misses what's literally right in front of their nose... like my friend who ran into a door not once, but twice. the same door.


    whereas absent-minded would be different... more like your glasses being on top of your head but forgetting they're there. just general distraction, as opposed to being blatantly oblivious to one's surroundings.

    but maybe it's actually more a lack of Se than anything, and Si users experience that too?

    Why so? Because sometimes you can't comprehend Victor or because Ti posts are too long?

    If it's the former... not all N's have to understand him. Just as I found multiple S's understand him.

    If it's the latter... just because you have Ti in yourself does not mean you like it when others people use it.

    Hmm... well according to Wikipedia:

    3. unwarranted distraction of attention from the object of focus by irrelevant thoughts or environmental events.
    I suppose it could be related to Si as well, but I wonder if this would happen in any intensely introverted individual.

    Well I've walked and ran into my share of open and closed doors, but never multiple times in a row!

    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.
    I feel the same way when communicating with Ne/Ni dominants. When I'm communicating with N's I feel as if it's more work, yet I find it more rewarding. I find myself over-analyzing what they've said in an attempt to figure out whether or not there's really a deeper meaning beyond what has been actually stated. My Ti doesn't mind sifting through metaphors and analogies in the event I think there will be something of substance to decipher, yet at the same time when their posts/sentences are very verbose, I quickly lose interest. Also, I get the impression that lots of N's try too hard give their posts a cryptic read, thus leading to the entire reading experience seeming rather contrived on their part.

    no problem understanding people... I'm the lowest common denominator when we come to the subject of communication

    of course understanding doesn't mean that I don't think that the speaker is a complete dumbass, but dumbasses come in ALL types
