So how about it? Do you know many NT's that speak that way? Do you know any that don't? What are the patterns that you've noticed with regards to these two categories?
I have learned a lot about rhetoric during my short life, and people have always thought of me as charismatic... I have certainly never been described as "monotone". My family has a strong tradition of telling stories to our children, it might be why.

I was just thinking about this topic the other day, except it was about having a flat affect. I have a friend who I can never tell if what she says is genuine or not because she has such a flat affect, which includes, her having a monotone almost constantly. But the thing is, she is an F. A very strong F. So this tells me that she has conditioned herself to have this flat affect.... probably because she fears exposing her emotions and being rejected by people because of this.
I'm very animated in real life so the contrast in behavior between us is stark to the onlooker but I really don't think the things we are feeling inside are much different.
