    Very likely... I'll go for as long as someone will let me. I'm very patient when it comes to sharing information and teaching, but not patient when it comes to most else.

    Yeah, Im too "generous". I'm not one to put myself out there and speak but if i'm interested in a subject and have someone willing to discuss and/or listen I could go on for an extraordinary amount of time. I have to be on tangent alert though because I have a lot of interests and an ability to tie and shift the conversation to one of those interests. I'm definitely not one of those people that seeks knowledge just so I can hoard it and hold it above someones head like I'm privileged. If I withhold it it's more likely because I think it is more nerdy and somewhat alienating.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    You really have to ask?

    How likely are you to sit down and explain or teach?
    I must be asked unless we are not close enough.

    Are there certain parts of your knowledge that you guard from others?
    Depends on their intention and wisdom.

    See a lot of NTs are stingy with their knowledge.I wonder what the motivation is?

    As an NT is it that you want to be seen as smart so you don't dish in fear of looking dumb?

    Or if you are confident do you hold back in order to remain more knowledgeable than the rest?

    Or is it that by sharing knowledge you don't have time for your own intelectual persuits?

    Or simply that you don't care to share?

    I wonder how much NTs know that never manifests itself.

    Most INTPs, I believe, want the knowledge in the minds of those they're in contact with to be sound. Immature INTPs, like myself as a kid/teenager, aren't subtle about it and excel at irritating others. These days I try to make knowledge inviting, like cake, and you can take a bite if you like.

    I love free exchange of ideas and I am more than willing to teach people anything I can do if they are interested.

    I can't see any reason to withhold my knowledge from anyone who asks for it.
