    I notice you regularly use semicolons and parenthesis. I wonder if there is a correlation between MBTI type and punctuation style...

    Well, INTP writing style can easily involve lots of complexly balanced sentences, and the punctuation is the nuts and bolts on which everything hinges or spins.

    I also was a writer and editor for a large part of my career.

    I will take this fact to mean that my writing style resembles that of a professional wordsmith. Thank you for this realization.

    You're very welcome, glad I could be of service.

    I think it's a characteristic of the F-vacuum which exists there. Unless people put the effort into spinning it positively every time, it's going to come across as 'sneering NT elitism'. You know, like everything else that occurs there

    Are NTs just scared of emotions? Because A lot of them are enne 5's, and 5's operate on fear... I wonder if that correlates..

    No.

    EDIT: ...okay, maybe. But that's not the issue.

    All enneatypes operate on fear. The difference is what one fears.
