    Well INTJs are the manipulators of systems and school is a system like any other so does it really suprise you that INTJs get good grades.

    Maybe in school, but the workplace favors ESTJs.

    I will totally agree with you on that. Especially white collar office jobs. Makes me SICK!

    i think school is written for and by sensors (especially SJs as theyre drawn to organization n such), like almost everything else because they're the majoity. the intj i knew in highscool was bored brainless and was an underachiever (although not a poor achiever). i also think Js have an advantage over Ps. E vs I is debatable. Es will be happier in the classroom (for me its hell and one of the worst possible learning environments) but Is might find it easier to study as its a solitary exercise... usually -- Es can have group studies buts its not for every E as the discrepancies in the intellect and understanding of each group member can drain the energy of anyone. Is may also be more prone to depression. i think anyone who isn't an ES struggles a bit with the rest of society. where was i going with this? oh yeah, the esfp is probably destined to underahcieve in school (yet have a good time due to the high social contact world of high school), so to answer your question, intjs probably do have an advantage over esfps when it comes to scoring grades.

    The stories my ex used to tell me about his schooling experience used to make me chuckle. He always used to say he was knowledgeable and not smart as if he was, he would of stayed in school and got a good education.

    I suppose if you are smarter than your teacher you are immediately at a disadvantage and your teacher is going to rather peeved at you for it. Afterall, who is teaching who at that point.

    I think though you can turn the tables. If i was a teacher (never) and i had a smart INTJ student, i would look at possibly opening the mind more during free time. I would have intellectual debates with him/her instead of feeling inferior.

    Hmmm.

    School is geared towards the ESTJ at the basic level. Regular dificulty classes have groupwork, and just require the students to digest the textbook. The teachers also require organization, which the ESTJ's often excell at. Finally, the mathematics requires structure and logic, which ESTJ's I know have a lot of, meaning that the basic level education is for ESTJ's. The honors and AP levels were pretty much invented for INTP's and INTJ's.

    IMO, schools "favour"

    J>P
    S>N if J, N>S (somewhat) if P
    E>I
    T>F

    in more or less that order. so like, ESTJ>INTJ>INTP>ISFP etc

    "any type can be a good/bad student" /disclaimer
