    Are we taking two INTJ and INTP trained on the same subject at the same level? Because to get them on the same level is incredibly difficult as people's skills are desperately varying. And depending on the area of discussion its also important to note analogies are better at explaining something incredibly complex. But, the receiver depending on their level of understanding may or may not require a depth of detail, so the argument who is more concise is highly contextual.

I find it hard to see how someone posting "that's wrong/stupid/mean" without farther clarification adds much to the conversation.

    Of course, I'm certainly a wall-of-texter, myself.
    Speaking personally, I'm a compulsive editor. I always think you can say more with less. I only tend to write a lot when I don't have time to write less. What you see from an INTP (who isn't just being lazy and not engaging their brain in the way that most of us here fail to do) is the end result of a whole turmoil of disjointed speculative thought, filtered, and filtered, and filtered again, until only the purest essence remains. The resulting text tends to be very dense, sometimes with layers upon layers of meaning packed into it. With the kind of pleasing ambiguities that Ne delights in. I don't know why this pleases us, but it does. I alluded to this in one of the few lengthy posts I've ever made here. This post was long because the idea of the "Ti aesthetic" was just occurring to me and I was still working through it. But you will note that no one bothered to engage with me, because it's almost considered poor form to have this much text in one post. People are here mostly just to have fun, after all (and to pick-up chicks . Which makes the investment required to create a thorough and thought-provoking post more often than not, a poor one.

    You are right, of course. But there are certain styles and modes of expression common to people who share a preference for particular functions. And on here, at least, it's one way we can gather empirical data about typological differences and patterns.

    Another question for the INTs: how ramble-y (or otherwise) are you in private correspondence with friends (e.g. emails )?

    Agreed. Though I think some people consider this the opposite of concise.

    Ah well. We can't account for other people's comprehension failures.

    It's simply a reaction to absurdity.

    An emotional reaction, yes. Any time you go beyond stating objective facts, you're emotionally reacting.

    All reactions are emotional.
