Yep, me, too.I'm also a fan of
"Here's my point: [the point]
Here's why I think that: [long flippin' explanatory text here]"
Best of both worlds for me.
I do the same thing!One thing I hate is when I can tell what point someone is working up towards, but in an effort to be polite, I refrain from short-circuiting their account and give them the benefit of the doubt that perhaps I really don't know what they plan to say. Then, they proceed to say in the most longwinded manner possible exactly what I suspected they would. Makes me want to scream.
Yes, I completely agree.It's not the number of words, it's the word to content ratio. Use many words if you need them to develop your point; if paring them down would sacrifice meaning, don't. But don't say in 100 words what requires only 15.
Oh, wow, thank you for sharing this. It gives me a good insight. I have often been accused of "over-explaining" or "overkill," and maybe this explains why.Te is also a big part of the translation mechanism from Ni to the outside world. I like to be concise, but also like to make sure I will be understood. I suspect my explanations are sometimes overkill as a result.
Thank you for this:Yeah, but I've not heard Ji and Je before today, but MBTI is a growing subject for me. Learn something new everyday, so I will keep this in mind.If all you want is the short answer, it's Je. Simplification of information in order to render judgment applicable to a "real world" scenario.
