    Default Is excessive emoji use indictive of high Ne?

    Forgive me if I'm misusing the word emoji. I am rather unversed in modern and even non modern tech terms, so I'm fearful emojis might refer to colorful faces and icons confined only to cell phones. Such a corny word to being with..I shudder a bit using it myself but I digress...
    anyway I noticed that those who tend to type using slews of exclamation marks and/ or s etc. are so often self typed and or/ typed by others as xNxPs, the types with the strongest Ne of them all. What's with this?

    Inflection. Words are just words without inflection, so emojis and punctuation aid in getting our true meaning across.

    For example, I like to tease. In person, my flirty grin would tell you I'm teasing, but online the words could easily be taken very wrong. Adding a *winky* face is the online equivalent of the flirty grin.

    Mm, probably not. There used to be a user named Halla who used more emojis than anyone else on the forum, he was an ESTP. It's really too bad he's not around anymore, his posts were great.

    I have noticed that a lot of EF types use them frequently. Because they're fun or something?

    I use them once in a while, but I prefer to express myself with words. (Although I admit I do like to use memes. Mostly to get laughs.)

    We just have so many feelings and no way to externalize them without body language.

    I use them alot mainly just because I like them and think that they are fun and because as was said before they kind of take the place of body language for me in a way.

    either to make my tone more clear or just because I like them and they're fun. sometimes I communicate in all emoji.

    i must add that iphone emojis are far superior to the forum smilies and I wish I could use emojis here
