    How often do you read long posts on this forum?

    I just can't seem to do it. As soon as I see a long post I just think 'I really can't be bothered to read that' and move on to a one liner.

    can't you express that more concisely? I lost interest halfway through!

    Rarely. I skim and look for ideas or thoughts that catch my interest, then I'll read more.

    Wow thanks! Your comment reminds me of a very funny story that happened to me some years ago.. well 3 years ago, but I guess that can be considered 'some'. Anyway there were these dots, or periods if you will, They were kinda lined up in this pattern. It was like a squiggly pattern, but in a precisely squigglified way. So I said to my friend John (not his real name, except when it was) "look at those periods", and he said "no, they're dots". A long argument ensued. Anyway, hmmmm I thought I was going somewhere with this, oh well, let's try a different angle.
    If you were to type a series of periods, do you think your personality type would determine how many you type? What a stupid question, why did I even bother to ask it? It's probably because I'm only halfway finished with my coffee. Hmm, now there's a thread idea.. "INTPs and coffee". I just wish mine wasn't instant. Oh well I guess you make do. Anyway, what was I trying to express here? Oh yeah. *deep breath* 4...3...2...1 Now I'm ready.
    So yaks, whoever decided to call them yaks? It's not like they talk all the time. Or do we call excessive talking 'yaking' because of the animal? That makes no sense. Interesting some of my instant coffee grounds spilled on my desk and they form a pattern of dots. OOOOH that reminds me! John (not his real name John) didn't call them dots he called them 'pinpoints'. And uh, that changes my story how...? Ugh, everybody tells me I'm a horrible story teller, and now I think I see why. I see why.. I C Y! Icy! Not icy now, it's June, but still anything can happen, or maybe I just need to go get an Icee. After I finish my coffee. Wait it is gone. What flavor? Ugh, can't decide!
    I just divided one of my instant coffee grounds in half and now I have even more dots! Wow I really rambled here. There's no way any of my fellow INTPs is going to be able to read this. Maybe I should throw a secret code word in here and offer a reward to anyone who notices it? Yeah, but what should that code word be? I don't want it to sound stupid..
    Anyway back to the original topic, do I have the attention span to read long posts. I... wait, what was I talking about again, oh yeah. Of course I read long posts, I wouldn't want anyone to think they are wasting their time posting them, some people may be upset to hear otherwise. Well maybe I read the gist of it. Or maybe my head will just fill in the 'gist' (gist, now there's another funny word). Maybe I'll read 3 words, invent a gist, then flame you for something you never even said. OP-- I do NOT post while wearing a goat costume, maybe you didn't say it, but I know you were thinking it. Anyway I'll get back to the point in a minute but meanwhile it looks like it is time for another coffee....

    ^ Your a nutcase. I can't believe I read most of that post. haha!

    The reason for the dots was because I was only going to post G.T. but the damned forum said my post was too short then i tried some dots failing to read how many character it required for the minimum. Anyway I finally realised and at the same time lost my cool so I pelted my post with dots hence what you saw and quoted on. I do like talking with text I never get to use so many word in the real world meaning I never get to use so many words in one go verbally partly because I feel people wouldn't really be interested in such jargon. And why would they? I just called it jargon myself. And what's the big deal with starting a sentence with the word and? I'm not sure about you americans but its frowned upon in english or should I say british grammar seeing as you speak english anyway but you near enough wrecked our language you big bullies. Why are the yanks such bullies anyway? dont they have enough oil on their own soil. Oil, soil... that rhymed, I had aspirations to be a lyrical genius but I've given up because ironically I need an American accent. Although i could put one on but then I'd be seen as fake and that is pretty much the only thing rappers must do is keep it 'real' anyway im goin on a little so once you've finished scanning throw something back I don't really care about the thread subject anymore its kind of beautifully ironic now that we're waffling on and on and on and on and on...

    As long as they hold my interest. Sometimes excessively long posts have a habit of degenerating and going off on tangents that aren't relevant to the original point, but some people just have more to say on a subject that others. If it's a topic about which I'd like to post I read it pretty carefully as usually someone else will have made my own argument before, and usually stated better.

    If it's an xbox huge wall of text with complete disregard for paragraph structure, forget it.
