    That's my post in a similar thread on INTPc. Extensive vocabularies for their own sake are pointless. The point of language is to communicate. If you know words that only 0.01% of the population knows, that doesn't do you much good, does it? It's about as useful as making up your own language or learning Klingon.

    I scored 127, btw. My reading comprehension has always been great.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    The best writing is written on an eighth grade level that everyone can understand. You're right, the purpose of language is to communicate not to impress.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    It depends on who you are trying to communicate with, and what you are trying to communicate. I don't think language should be used to impress, but that's not the only reason you would use words beyond those of "an eighth grade level".

    You appear to have a good vocabulary. You know the meanings of most of the given terms, some of which are extremely advanced. Your excellent vocabulary can help you communicate and understand the written word.

    I usually score very high on those, so I got a 154, but I think they don't measure actually anything significant. In any case, given that I translate as a way to make a living, I suppose a sufficiently high score is a must.

    I believe my score would be significantly lower if I were to take the test in my native language, due to its much higher level of complexity in comparison to English (complexity in language is bad, imho).

    Compared to a lot of the other responses I seem to be on the low side. Usually if I don't know a word I look it up, but unless I can put it to use, I tend to forget about it after a day or two so I had to answer "I don't know" to more than a few of the questions. To me, the purpose of enhancing vocabulary is to have more words available to convey subtle nuances and increase specificity. Knowing words just for the sake of knowing them is nice but by the time I can put a lot of them to use I'd have forgotten about them, and it also doesn't do much good to use a word if your target audience is baffled by it. if I think they can infer its meaning thats often good enough to me too. Sometimes I want to make people think so I visit the thesaurus to make my words more interesting and encourage others to learn, but not if understanding or clarity are my goals.

    108. Just a little above average, (70&#37 but obviously way lower than average compared to the people in this forum.

    Why is my vocabulary so bad? Thoughts: Relatively young still, barely made it through high school, skipped college, have no intellectual friends, like to keep things simple, rarely read fiction, too fast moving and loopy, ect...

    Why is yours so good, do you think?

    At least my reading comprehension is always very good - usually perfect.

    I do look up words whenever I don't know them, and I usually remember everything I learn, so my results were surprising to me. A lot of those words I have never ever seen before. However, I am not suprised that I have never seen those words before, because I can't think of a single thing that I do in my life that would introduce me to new words like that.

    Or maybe I screwed my score by refusing to answer "I don't know." Is that possible? I didn't pick that option once. To me, answering "I don't know" and picking the wrong answer are the exact same, so I took my chances and tried to get them right.
