    Red face Punctuation Marks and MBTI

    http://andreajwenger.com/2010/11/05/...-type-fiction/

    I found an interesting article relating punctuation and MBTI types. I do notice I use ellipses (...) a lot. I'm not certain about many things :P For your type, do you think your related punctuation type fits you?

    Oh and at the bottom are the writing styles for each type. Also find that my type is relevant to the descriptions.

    I use all of them pretty frequently except for semicolons, which I almost never use. So it fails for me.

    "These practical types don’t have time for long sentences. They’re direct and honest. They focus on facts, not feelings. Their expression is short and sweet. (Or at least, short.)"

    Could not be more wrong. I have trouble keeping my sentences concise, usually.

    Actually, every single paragraph for all the other types fits me. So yep, complete bollocks.

    Do I tend to post shorter sentences and get to the point? Yes.
    But I use all types of punctuation.

    I like commas, quotation marks and sometimes ellipsis. And, as you can see, my periods are short. Actually, semicolon is the punctuation mark I use less.

    I was really skeptical about this, but curiosity got the better of me, and so I checked it out.

    Interestingly, it was very accurate for me.

    In fact, anyone who's ever read a rough draft of something I wrote has noticed (and often loudly complained about) this:

    Comma splices: ENPs


    A comma splice is an ungrammatical use of the comma to separate two independent clauses without the benefit of a conjunction. This use of punctuation best captures the rapid, unruly flow of ideas of the ENFPs and ENTPs. Unlike their introverted cousins, ENPs use their extraverted intuition to think out loud, one thought leading to another, with no time for conjunctions or breaks in sentences.
