    Default Typing by frequently used words possible?

    I noticed that I frequently use the words 'also', 'simple' and 'but'. And I can say things like 'Is it important?', 'It's a problem, but not my problem.' and 'What do you exactly want?'. A few puns a day are also dayroutine.

    I think all these verbal expressions together indicate my type (INTP).

    Is anyone aware of a research or publication about this?
    Or do words indicate your type?

    None of those indicate INTP-ness. I don't think the words we use indicate our type at all. If I were to analyze it though, the fact you think it does could be evidence towards weak intuition as you are looking for meaning in things that aren't there. It's not so much the words themselves that we use that say something about our cognition as it is the logic/ideas we use these words for to represent our understanding of the world that do.

    Looking at words without looking at the meaning of words is thus a fruitless endeavor.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    Along a similar vein, uClassify has text analysis tests for the 4 MBTI dichotomies.

    I'm not sure I find the usage of such common words like "also" and "but" to be indicative of type, but I do believe there are some very general overall patterns in language that correspond to type - Ns using more broad/vague terminology, Fs using more emotional terminology, and so on. Your phrases seem to lean T, for instance. I do believe that preference will tend to show up in language, but I also think it could be easily overridden by language needed for personal interests and environment.

    Interesting thought but I doubt that it would be accurate. I tend to use a lot of qualifiers because for the most part, I hate to sound too definitive or certain of things.

    Frequently using the word "hello" means you're one of the 8 informing types.
    Frequently using the word "goodbye" means you're one of the 8 directing types.

    And if you buy that, I have swampland for sale on Park Ave. in NYC. Cheap.

    You say "Yes", I say "No".
    You say "Stop" and I say "Go, go, go".
    Oh no.
    You say "Goodbye" and I say "Hello, hello, hello".

    Oh!! Wrong thread...

    Nice, thanks. Although I don't understand the inner workings. But I found a scientific research, stating: 'Experiments suggest that the two middle letters of the MBTI personality type dichotomies, Sensing-Intuition and Thinking-Feeling, are related to word choice while the other dichotomies, Extraversion-Introversion and Judging-Perceiving, are unclear.'

    And I also found a Capt publication which describes the different words that can be used to motivate personality types.

    Same here. I would guess P types are more prone to that.
