    I'm INTP and I do this sometimes, but only if the other person is searching for the right words. I don't interrupt people. I want to be helpful and show I'm listening.

    I also kind of hate it when people go on and on about things, but only if they're explaining something to me that I already understand. Then I'm like "yeah, yeah, yep, right, I understand, (and if it's my mother) I GET IT!"

    haha, its pretty interesting cause at my last visit to Thailand I used to frequent a restaurant with some training mates. We usually had lively discussions on the evenings (with me at the center of it offcource). After a while a girl that workes there stareted to respond to me with a quick "Yeah, yeah!, yeah!", 'cause apparently I said this ALOT. I diden't get why she said that with a fun-loving smile on her face teasing me t first so i had to ask, haha. Also she called me leader of the village for some reason .

    And yeah it's possible to head off the urge, but it's hard. So hard.

    I think of doing this but I dont because I hate when people do it to me and because as raptor wizard I wait for my turn to speak.

    Oh geez yeah, pretty much all the time.


    I don't know why...think it's either:

    a.) my way of showing the other person that I'm thinking actively about what they're saying and want to contribute to our conversation

    or

    b.) what others have been saying about how people want to give you ALL the information when just a few key points will suffice. So they just go on and on and on and it's a major snorefest. Besides, I stop feeling like we're having a conversation and that sucks a big one.

    Hah!

    I do this. Well, I don't necessarily leap right in and finish their sentence, because that's rude. But if they are ever stopping to think of the right word, or how exactly to phrase it, I just can't help filling in.

    I also frequently fill in the blank with barely any context. A friend will suddenly say, "Oh, it would be fun if we could ____." Or "Hey I've got an idea! ______"

    I'm the go-to person for helping someone figure out what they're forgetting or what exactly they should say.

    I often get reactions like, "How did you guess?" and "I was just thinking that!"

    Yes, yes, yes, especially when I'm really concentrated and excited. When I don't want to bother others too much with my enthousiasm, and I feel I've talked enough already about it. Then everything other people say to me is a distraction (from dreaming about the thing I'm enthousiastic about) and I want to finish it as soon as possible!
    Of course, this is very annoying, especially if you guess wrong. It drives my husband up the wall.

    Yea. And you know you're good at it when you answer a question before it's asked.

    No, and I hate it when somebody tries to complete my own sentences. Attention seekers or overly extraverted people can sometimes behave this way.

    Strictly speaking, I think I've done it only when I notice that people are hesitating or seeking their words. But in any other social situation, I would consider this behavior to be very impolite.
    One of my female students used to behave this way with me, even when I was in the middle of a lecture.
    At first, I was rather shaken by this continuous habit but with time, I found ways to "manage" her flaw without getting angry against her.
