    Default Unintential Exclusion of Key Words In Written Sentences

    It seems that there are certain people who consistently leave out key words in their written sentences. Only after reading over said sentence many times over does it become clear that a word or more is, in fact, missing. Is this something others have noticed as being related to the order of cognitive functions?

    **Unintentional** That is. Jeez.

    I think those with logical or ethical base functions (in other words rational types) are more careful about their wording and more likely to check it over before submitting so they're probably less likely to unintentionally omit words.

    Logical rational types, are well aware that omitting one word can totally change the overall logical meaning. Ethical rational types are well aware that words convey emotions and omitting just one word can totally change the emotional meaning.

    My theory is with irrational types, they are somehow more concerned with the overall context and less concerned about the individual words themselves. They use the overall context to get the logical or emotional meaning and omission of a word or two is less of big deal to them so maybe they are less likely to check over their writing before submission and therefore more likely to make unintentional omissions.

    I could be totally wrong here though.

    I've been doing this a lot lately, but I usually catch them and fix them(I think).

    I find myself doing it intentionally at times as a means of adding an unexpected charm to the writing. When I focus on expressing myself accurately I rarely make that kind of omission, though.

    Spelling and grammar mistakes I largely can't be bothered with checking for.

    I do it constantly. I think that half of it is because I tend to write the way the way that I talk, and the other half are the holes in my brain where the meth used to be.

    Don't you mean less of a big deal?

    and here I am the irrational and you the rational...

    I notice grammar mistakes all the time, in my own writing and in others'. Often I purposely misuse punctuation to make the written word better match the spoken word (commas for pauses, etc.). Spelling errors are rare, except in the case of typos (like yours above) which I will usually catch with careful proofreading (though there are times when I do not bother to proofread). If I'm not sure how to spell a word, I will look it up (or at least point out in my writing that I'm not sure how to spell the word).

    Yeah, I did mean less of a big deal. The word "a" isn't exactly an important keyword so I tend to let omissions like that slide.
