    Logically precise

    I was reading a text yesterday and met a confusing phrase.

    It is ''Logically precise''

    First, let me show you interested sentence;

    INTPs are known for their brilliant theories and unrelenting logic in fact, they are considered the most logically precise of all the personality types.

    Logically is an adverb, and precise is an adjective. But there is no noun or verb to be qualified by them. So, it is confusing for me.

    If I made this sentence, I would have made it like this;

    ''
    in fact, they are considered that their logic is the most precise of all the personality types.''

    Meanings of these two sentences are same? I will be thankful for your helps.

    Have a nice day!

    Welcome to the forum, Erbab.

    First, please tell us the source and author of your quoted text.

    What are 'INTPs'?

    Re: Logically precise

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers%...Type_Indicator

    It's one of the 16 personality types according to this theory. There are many such tests you can find online to find out what type you are.

    You are either:
    Introverted or Extroverted
    iNtuintive or Sensing
    Feeling or Thinking
    Perceiving or Judging

    An INTP would be introverted, intuitive, thinking and perceiving.

    Re: Logically precise

    As for the original question:

    Boil down the part of this you are having trouble with:

    they are considered the most logically precise of all the personality types.
    And it becomes:

    They are considered (to be) precise.
    "Precise" is an adjective, describing "they."

    Sure there is.
    "INTP is the most logically precise personality type." 'Type' is a noun. 'Personality type' is a compound noun.
    "Tom is the tallest of all the boys" = "Tom is the tallest boy [of all]."

    Your sentence is not grammatical.

    Re: Logically precise

    Thanks for your answers.

    This is full text;

    Okey, ''INTP is the most precise personality type of all.'' This sentence is clear. Precise personality type is a compound noun. There is not a problem here.

    But,
    ''INTP is the most logically precise personality type of all.'' This is confusing. I can not translate it into my language. Because logically is an adverb ,and only verb in this sentence is 'to be'.

    On the other hand, ''Logically,
    INTP is the most precise personality type of all.'' this is clear. Because before this sentence, maybe author has explained something supported it.

    What is the meaning of logically in the real sentence? I am not sure, so I need to ask you :)

    Thanks.

    Re: Logically precise

    I understand the phrase to mean that people with the INTP personality profile are more likely than others to apply precise logic.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Logically precise

    Adverbs also modify adjectives. 'Logically' modifies 'precise'. INTP people are precise in their logic. They might not be precise in other areas of their life, for example, in their driving, or drawing, or cooking. They are not necessarily artistically or physically precise. But they are logically precise.

    Re: Logically precise

    Thanks for your answers.

    Okey Raymott, I got it, thank you. Your example is illuminating. Many of sentences can be understood intuitively, but logic is important to understand clearly and comprehensively.

    Thanks again!
