    Default S drawn to science?

    "That Sensors and Intuitives are often drawn to different subjects in school should come as no surprise. Intuitives are often more interested in theoretical studies like philosophy, psychology, sociology, and literature, while Sensors are often interested in more tangible subjects with practical applications, such as engineering, science, and business."

    I was always under the impression that science was the realm of the N. Thoughts, opinions?

    Depends on how you define science.

    Put politically incorrectly, Ss would be very interested in watching things go "boom."
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Well science is often about linking abstract theory to concrete reality or vice versa, so both Ns and Ss meet somewhere in the middle.

    I actually think the scientific method is quite an ST approach to things.

    I think S types would tend to do better at biology, earth science, and possibly chemistry since those subjects are so detail-oriented and hands-on.

    I made a thread on this, and people voted by type: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...e-subject.html

    Most NFs were interested in English and History.
    Most NTs were interested in Science.
    Most SJs were interested in Math (although few people voted).
    Most SPs were interested in English (although few people voted).

    Science is great, as long as their is some practical application.
    No science is interesting without a lab involved...

    I generally prefer math over science.

    Chemistry, yeah. Earth Science was pretty fun for me because all the material just came naturally to me. I didn't do so well in Bio, but that's probably mostly because I was just a stupid little freshman.

    I actually didn't like the labs so much in high school. I preferred to just learn from the teacher or textbook.

    End of the day, hot in the room, etc..

    College ones are better. They help with the lecture a lot.

    Science is about theories and principles, not facts and figures. This is something many people do not realize because of the United State's horrid public education system.

    I actually wouldn't mind that so much. Well, maybe, if it were inside, it wouldn't be as tolerable. But I just loooooove the heat... The way I remember it, I would be up early in the morning, tired, not to mention cold. And the labs were just no fun.
