    How does that make y'all the poor communicators though?

    I get this all the time too. It's the pedestrian cross-the-street principle. You got to make eye contact with the driver. If people are always offhandedly telling me important!things without knowing or checking via eye contact that I'm in it with them, eh.

    My mother in particularly does this to me all the time. Sometimes I tune in briefly to realize we're the only two people in a room, and have to ask her if she's talking to me.

    Because communication is about sending and receiving a message. That's failing the receiving part.

    OP:
    Not in my experience. Especially ISTPs are usually quite precise communicators. ISFPs maybe less so, but they're still efficient.
    Of course, them being both Introverts, might make them not be very willing to communicate.

    The bolded shows that you seem personally against ISxP's.

    Incorrect. That's the sender failing the sending part.

    Ooh, I just thought of something ISFP-related to add.

    If ISFPs and ISTPs were forced to communicate with everyone when they didn't feel like it, they would like you even less and then break off ALL communication. You should be happy you get the communication you do. (haha)

    And I totally mumble sometimes. :P

    I guess you'll have to guess...
    This is what drives me nuts about ISFPs, given that I pretty much need a blunt "I don't ever want to talk to you." response to stop interacting with someone.

    I'll admit Im bad at communicating. The thoughts in my head have a hard time being morphed into the words that come out of my mouth. I will skip words, muy mind goes blank and I cant rememeber the word I need, get halfway through a sentence and my mind starts thinking about something else and I forget to finish the sentence. Im not good at ending conversation, I just kinda think that its over and walk away. I will wait instead of interupting and by the time the other person is done what I wanted to say no longer has relevence with where the conversation went.

    Rage! I hate that about myself. I've got the same thing.

    Of course you could always ask them straight up, and you may or may not get the truth in response.
