    I am a grammar Nazi by my own admission. I always use proper grammar in my text messages, and although I try not to correct other people's grammar, I die a little on the inside every time.

    Poor grammar, in my opinion, tends to make a person look either uneducated or just plain lazy.

    The same types most likely to have lower EQ.

    Would've thought INTP would be possibly higher, well for females anyways :p I annoy my friends with this a lot although tbh it's more specifically done to annoy the hell out of them than that I care that much, although I always get slightly irked looking at incorrect grammar. But I feel like a hypocrite when I point it out cos I know my grammar's not perfect, especially when speaking.

    Find it funny my ESTJ friend actually doesn't give a shit about grammar as long as you know what she means, but could be due to her having English as a second language.

    Interesting how some of the differences between males and females are significant, possibly due to sample size of each gender within each type?

    i hate capital letters, don't care about punctuation that much, use plenty of acronyms slang etc. but when adults really don't understand the difference between your/you're or there/their/they're it hurts me a little inside.

    Yeah I feel like it's ok to break the rules as long as you know them. I know grammar isn't everyone's thing, but I do cringe when I see obviously unaware errors all over someone's writing. I only call it out with a few close friends with whom I have an agreement that we'd prefer to be called out on any errors grammatically or otherwise the other person makes.

    Also, if you're speaking a second language, all judgment is gone.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I don't really care, as long as I can understand what the other person is saying.

    You have to be an asshole of the first degree to judge people on typos.

    I'm very particular about it in my own writing, but more easygoing about other people's. It's just surprising when someone makes major mistakes in a formal context like a cover letter or a school assignment. But for obvious reasons, they will learn why not do do that without my help.

    Oh. I judge. Not online so much but in a professional setting, absolutely. You are judged by how you speak and how you write, it makes no difference what the profession is.
