Most concise or long-winded characters

As part of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz, this website has had volunteers rate 1,750 characters on a 100 point scale from "concise" to "long-winded". This page lists the 25 characters whose average ratings were the farthest to either side. Because the scale is bipolar, it is reversable. For example, a rating of 1/100 for "concise" is the same as 100/100 for "long-winded". See the documentation for more information about how these ratings were collected.
