    Hm, I'll have to ask someone if I speak in a monotone manner. I certainly don't think so.

    EDIT: I asked my brother. He says I can be monotone at times. But then he commented that everyone has the capability of speaking in a monotone fashion sometimes.

    Hmm...I have been accused of using a monotone.

    I suppose I sometimes do when I really get going on a topic....but I speak so little( write a lot) that it can be hard to really know or rare that I get going.

    I don't think I sound monotone. Maybe just once in a while when I have no energy or I don't care about what I'm saying. What do you think, Ventrillo people, am I monotonous?

    I'd guess INTPs would have it the worst and ENTPs the least.

    I don't know, for a while I was in monotone denial, but since everyone I've asked has told me that I have it pretty bad, I've been forced to relent. The point: your voice sounds WAY different to you than it does to other people.

    I might be in monotone denial too. But I don't think I have it that bad when I'm not in "information sharing" mode. I've never asked my friends.

    But to be fair to us, I think I would rather be around the average monotone speaker than the average polytone speaker who often isn't really saying as much as their expression would lead you to believe.

    INFJ's are known for monotone (and general lethargic face expressions) much more than any NT. I've definitely noticed the drawl that a lot of us (not necessarily all of us, though), have.

    Yeah, I've got the monotone pretty bad, but I think its because I'm hardly ever aware of how I'm feeling. I've always related tone to emotion and I've never related myself to emotion.


    I resent the implications that a monotone makes you boring. Just 'cause the cake dosen't look nice dose not mean it tastes plain.

    I don't know if anyone's said this yet, but Asperger's is characterized by abnormal speech/cadence. There might be a link between Asperger's and type, but I'm not sure. Would be an interesting study/survey.

    Here is a Asperger's forum talking about MBTI:

    Asperger's and the Myers-Briggs - General Autism Discussion

    Lots of INTPs. ISTJ's and INFJ's seem to be the 2nd most common there.

    Cool forum... I browsed it for a while some months back.
