    NO. It's not an INFP thing, or an ISTJ thing, or related to type at all.
    I think it's VERY important to be aware of the limits of MBTI. People put way too much emphasis on it when trying to relate it to general abilities.
    I'm an INFP. No doubt about that.
    I'm good at languages.
    I'm good at math.
    I'm very good at music.

    Either I'm not an INFP (because my mathematic abilities don't fit the stereotype of the bleedingheart irrational, emotional INFP), or the steroetypes are wrong.

    Assuming that someone's type gives you a glimpse into their faculties is truly nonsense.

    But what the fuck do I know about it? I'm just an INFP.

    Linking MBTI and IQ lowers your IQ 20 points.

    I'm good at math too. It's always come easily to me. I hate that stereotype also!

    I'd say INFPs have a hard time relating to ISTJ math teachers.

I find this kind of strange because I would imagine that Sensing and Thinking would make one smarter rather than going by one's emotions. Strange...
    IQ tests are biased toward NT intelligence, so they score higher.

    We don't really have tests for the other types of intelligence, unfortunately.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I might point out that there are INTPs I know who claim to be awful at math, so perhaps there are math simpletons and math geniuses among every type.
    When I was in grade school they put me in special-ed math and then put me in gifted english. However just to point somthing out, my spelling is awful, my grammer isnt nearly as bad as my spelling but I do make mistakes. The thing I excel at is reading comprehension and creative writing. And I honostly think creative writing is a fluke just because Im always getting criticised for lack of emotion in my writing, I try and make up for it with humour and intelligence(did I also mention I KICK ASS in vocabulary) so needless to say as soon as poetry comes along....

    I'm an INTP, and while I would consider myself fairly good at math and I really do love it, I also sometimes struggle with it like people who aren't as good because of my synesthesia. It's frustrating because while I can compute and reason rather fast, I make mistakes all the time because my mind is compltely color-coded.

    Generally most NTs I know are fairly good at math, but not noticeably more than any other types.

    As for IQ as a whole, I've never really believed in the system in the first place. IQ definitely favors the intuitives and the thinkers, and it'd be hard to include other abilities using the same standard. IQ seems more a test of skill than actual intelligence.

    Another weird observation: I'm near dysfunctionally bad in spatial areas (I find it hard to mentally picture other sides of 3-D objects or rotate figures in my mind), which are emphasised heavily in almost every professional test I'd ever taken, but I still score in the 145-155 range. That's easily possible, especially if they give more weight to logical questions instead of geometrical questions, but with all the spatially-oriented elements it strikes me as...sort of unlikely? Ehh. I don't know, that's just what I think.

    How would you test a person's intelligence? Just curious.

    Yeah, the twisting around of 3D shapes and stuff is Visual IQ. Strange that you could get that high of an IQ without doing well in the spatial sections. I usually do well in the Spatial areas but not so well in the Verbal ones.

    Fortunately, NT IQ is biased towards kicking ass.

    You must be my clone, in terms of being sent to special ed math and gifted English.
    But my spelling is pretty good and I don't really have any problems with grammar.
    Like you, I am good at reading comprehension and creative writing. I've always been good at storytelling with lots of description. I'm less good at putting emotion into my writing. I don't like to tell people how to feel! I'd rather just tell the story and let the reader decide how to feel. I like to put in lots of description to help readers visualize the surroundings that I'm describing.

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
