Do INTPs tend to be more literal than other N types? I've heard from various places that INTPs tend to be overly literal at times. Maybe its because they seek clarity and precision in their thoughts and ideas that it gives them that impression?
I'm kind of leaning towards INTP for my type, even though I'm a strong N overall, I have this hyperliteral trait. When reading stuff, I generally prefer that writers just say what they mean and mean what they say because its a whole lot easier to establish logical clarity that way. I tend to shy away from the really figurative and symbolic stuff. A lot of poetry is lost on me, I have trouble wrapping my head around it. Probably because I'm overanalyzing it, when its more feeling based. When I read something I want the message to be clear and with much poetry, the reader makes their own meaning out of it, which is too fuzzy for me.
