    IME, INTPs (at least) highly value, and actively cultivate, brevity.
    o.O have you seen some of the walls of text crafted by the INTPs on this site?

    It's..... rather alarming.

    @Lark

    i cannot stand to read more than three paragraphs. four is pushing it, it better be damned interesting.

    but when someone writes back six paragraphs to my one, something is wrong.

    because 99% of the time the wall of text is boring and could have been summed up in 2 sentences. Sometimes I'll try to read a wall of text and than i'm like yeah....no. I don't expect people to read my posts, and i'd forgive them if i wrote a novella on here and they didn't read it. Honestly I'm not that interesting.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I can understand someone wanting broken up text or forum ettiquette to a certain extent but does it really mean that people dont pay attention anymore or wont concentrate? If its difficult or demanding are people in the west just inclined to give up and avoid it? Is slacking a cultural norm?
    The thing is it shows a lack of effort on the part of the poster. If they do not wish to engage with the content they're posting enough to perform an analysis on it or provide some original feedback, then obviously it cannot be THAT important to them and so why should I consider it important? The alternative is that the individual is under developed and so why should I listen to them? Or, possibly they're intellectually arrogant and "preaching" at me. Why would I want to be the agent of bolstering that person's ego?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Others have stated similar things. Why do you assume that someone who has posted a much longer post actually took less time to make it? If anything, it seems, on average, that they would have taken longer to make it.

    A longer post means that the individual is "underdeveloped"? Care to elaborate on this?

    There are some posts I find interesting, other things I don't. Some are longer, some are shorter. Why do you assume a longer post means they are intellectually arrogant and "preaching" at you? We often have debates on forums.

    It takes more time to read a longer post. That is certainly true. But I think it takes more time to make one too.

    I was referring to long texts that are just from other sources like a 4 page news article without the individual's commentary. I value long post's that the individual THEMSELVES took the time to type. It shows thoughtfulness, deliberation, and ability to reflect. When a person is coming from that sort of space I feel their thoughts are more prone to genuine honesty and I value them more.

    Someone had mentioned "signal-to-noise," and I think that's an apt analogy.

    Long-winded talks or posts aren't necessarily bad in and of themselves. In fact, I've found that I'm terrible at elevator pitches and 5-minute presentations, because I feel as though I can't fully explain an idea or present what I'd regard as necessary context.

    I actually fare much better with 30 minute to an hour and a half talks. But I still have to make them interesting, organized, and relevant.
