    I auto-skip anything longer than:

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .


    or so, regardless of content (much less if it's a boring topic already, or someone like Victor/SW). If it's an interesting topic, I'll read (well skim) many paragraphs in one post as long as they aren't longer than 4-5 lines each. The enter key is your friend!!!

    Nope, I don't ignore walls of texts, because I tend to do the same myself too.

    Writing walls of texts is actually my second nature. I have this tendency to write paragraphs after paragraphs in emails and text messages.

    If it's interesting and/or important to me I will read it, otherwise I will skim it or just skip it completely.

    If it's relevant, yes.
    Not relevant, no.

    Most people wouldn't read a wall of text like that.

    Personally, I can fairly easily digest a wall of text. I read a lot. It doesn't bother me. My ISFp wife, however, can get paralyzed by a wall of text ... lengthy instructions and the like. She has trouble applying for jobs because, these days, almost all applications are handled online and involve a lengthy list of "things to do" to complete and file an application. For years, I have had to do this for her. She either can't (or just won't) meticulously digest each and every requirement of the application and complete them all. She'll fill out some or most of the application form and hit "submit" (thinking she's done), when, in fact, she left out several key things demanded by the employer, and her applications is just filed away as "incomplete" with no action taken on it. Walls of text bother her a lot. They can even be debilitating.

    I CAN read walls of text, but I shudder at the mere sight of them (I'm even known to GENERATE them every now and then, whenever I'm interested enough in something that I actually WANT to invest more analytical thought as opposed to just jumping to the first calculated conclusion with the available information.)

    Depends on the size of the wall, though. I usually skim through to see if the bricks themselves have integrity or anything of interest before I attempt actually diving in.

    Walls of text practically blind me. I don't know how to start reading something that long. If it's not a book or something for fun then, it's just totally daunting. I mean it's like trying to read Russian when you don't even speak Russian. I have a learning disability that explains a bit of why reading is already a chore for me, but huge walls of texts floor me.

    @Kheledon I don't think you should compare and contrast you and your wife where you're positive and @Silent is struggling or at least balance it out.

    I do struggle, but I have to learn to deal with the problem.
