    The opposite of what she said.

    I think my all-time favorite was an ENFP professor of public policy. He was funny and very smart, but kind of lazy and couldn't really care less about the teaching; he left us with a lot of freedom, and he would always ask me to compute derivatives for him, since he had trouble with that, lol. Some people despised him for his easygoing approach, but I think that's the way to go.

    You need a good combination of carrots and sticks to be a good teacher.

    Now that I think about it I think the man was an ENFP. Portuguese teacher in high school. Outstanding character. He looked like he was drunk and would have sudden outbursts of rage...and he'd tell the most outrageously funny life stories in the middle of class... he was also the only teacher who "got me".

    Lol, sure enough I found him at a street party/festival last December drunk out of his skull. He actually proposed a toast in my honor. He admitted he didn't like me too much at first but he even knew my nickname (used by my classmates) which surprised me. It was nice to know he remembered me after all those years. (I gave him hell at first I suppose...Fi self-righteousness you see...he threw me out of classroom a few times haha)

    English professor.

    I couldn't draw a confident conclusion about her type. Last step I took was to guess she's EN_P, but it's really hard to guess if she'd be F or T. Part of the problem is that she really focused on critical thinking, and the subject material made it really hard to tell which side she'd lean toward. Sort of blurred the lines.

    I can actually list the letters I picked for her in descending order of confidence.

    N
    E
    P
    T/F?

    If she wasn't an EN_P, my next guess would be ENFJ. She doesn't seem very ENTJ.

    ENTP's seem in overall to be the best teachers, aswell as INFP's and NFJ's.

    Wow, same here. I always responded better to the strict teachers because I was one of the talkative students who distracted the rest of the class lol and a strict teacher knew how to deal with that instead of giving in to me.

    I have no idea what type she was, but my favourite teacher was the french teacher, and she was a tough bitch on short legs, no one else liked her but me.
