A NTP has relatively average intellectual abilities and often talents in one or more areas.  NT people exchange meaning through a coordinated system or words, context, gestures, expressions, and inflection.  They "read each other's mind" to tailor their communication to the needs of the listener.  Often, NT people will use phrases like, "Not to interrupt..." to indicate they are about to do just the opposite.  Communicating effectively with NT people involves guessing what they are thinking, listening to their words, and simultaneously interpreting their gestures, inflection, and tone of voice.
