ANSWER
There is no such thing as how long the intro “should” be. You are not forced to have a certain limit of words on the intro and conclusion. The intro and the conclusion are based on quality rather quantity. You should write an intro and conclusion that after a reader is done with them he would feel satisfied and the purpose of the intro and conclusion would have been established. The intro should be just as long as required to introduce all the contents of the body. You as a writer should ‘feel’ if its the appropriate length or not. I dont not recommend asking anyone for a certain word count.
