    Default Working with large bodies of information (help me out)

    I take in large volumes of information and rapidly cut through it for whatever I need from it, and get a really clear gist of everything that is necessary (by my own standards). I don't necessarily like working with a lot of information, but if there's less information it seems like you have less to work with and it does irk me when things are too vague... in other words I can't do anything with too little relevant information, and I feel stifled trying to work an exegetical approach with data (mainly because the obvious is the second thing I'm focused on processing). I have the same problem with expression sometimes; I'm compelled to give cohesion to what I'm saying so I'm not misconstrued, and if you don't give cohesion there's a problem with connotations; it can go in multiple directions if it's oversimplified.. I'm told that I overcomplicate things; when I'm asked to make something clear, I make it harder to understand. That being said, I don't find the world and nature to be particularly complex at all, yet forms of communication and expression can really overcomplicate things and working through that to everyone's satisfaction has been my biggest weakness. What can you make of this type wise?

    oh man and I've been chastised for tampering with data in the past... and I have to an extent, because I analyse and not compile thus I do some touch ups myself. I despise history and historians for the same reason.
    A thing someone told me once: 'it's just, like, i can't stand an overload of information, for example if you were talking to me and even if i did reply you continue like in a monologue, like youre more interested in talking than into sharing, this has happened to me a lot haha but i don't deny it must be partly my fault' instead of going back and forth about a subject, I put everything on the table myself and it takes a lot of words because I'm focused on the cohesion and process rather than the 'point'.

    sigh... again. Was all *that* too vague? Do I seem like I'm not serious?

    Hey there. All I can really gather here is that you sound somewhat like a type 5 or a type 6 perhaps, and most certainly not social instinct last. Have you considered filling out a questionnaire?

    Here in the spoiler is a great type questionnaire to fill out. Or if you aren't interested in that, I could try to type you personally on Ventrilo (when it's back up). But regardless, I will personally assist you with typing yourself if you want.
