Texting is a valuable skill in today's world — and it's one that definitely comes in handy when it comes to dating. Unfortunately, honing that skill just isn't high on everyone's priority list. While some wouldn't dream of not responding promptly, others might take hours or even days to get back to you — but don't take it personally. There are, in fact, certain Myers-Briggs personality who are bad texters all around. It's not that they don't like hearing from you or don't care what you have to say. It's just that engaging in back and forth digital banter straight up isn't their thing.
Each preference in the Myers-Briggs type indicator can have an impact on someone's texting style, too. Since Extraverts get their energy from interacting with others, they may be more inclined to initiate a text convo or keep it rolling than Introverts. Sensors usually keep their texts to the point, whereas Intuitives may want to dive deep into interpretations and abstract ideas. Thinkers tend to use texting as a practical way to exchange information and straightforward details, whereas Feelers use texting as another channel for interpreting and empathizing with their parter's emotions. Lastly, Judgers value structure while Perceivers prefer not to be confined to any rules, meaning that the latter often flies by the seat of their pants — including where texting is concerned.
So, wondering why your date is taking ages to get back to you? If they're one of the following personality types, it's probably just in their nature.
