    Default Mild grunting, few words and full sentences only when neccessary.

    Do most introverts communicate like this and does the idea of a world without verbal communication not freak you out in the least.

    (When I read about communication being the be-all and end-all of a relashionship I shudder, and wonder how the heck I'm gonna make it with someone!)

    It's entertaining to think about, but at first you have to talk more to set the foundation for later assumptions. Once the couple knows enough about each other about 80% of things could probably be communicated this way. It is, however, a good idea to maintain use of a full vocabulary and grammar as it still does end up useful.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I've actually gotten to the point where I'll tell people "I don't want to have a conversation like that." instead of feigning mild interest.

    I'd like to live in a world like that only if it only applied to people I don't like.

    I don't talk a whole lot. Just don't feel its always necessary to fill the air with sound and say whatever comes to mind. Sometimes I'm in a "chatty" mood but its not that severe. Hah

    Quality, not quantity. And introverts can really go off on the stuff they care about, especially in small groups.

    Make sure you talk when you need to talk about something - and just find someone who does the same.

    My wife and I got out for dinner once a week, and often end up spending at least one other night together. That's when we talk about all the major issues - money, relationships, stress, worries, etc. The rest of the time, we end up nattering on about the things we care about - my projects, her school work...

    Introverts can talk, and often better than extraverts, least in small groups. The closer we are, the more we do.

    There are certainly many ways to connect to others. I am dating an ISTJ however and I find it frustrating when another way to connect doesn't replace talking.
    I can handle and even enjoy silence, but how about some occasional eye contact, for instance?
    Can you offer any feedback on this?
