    Ahah, well it depends on the exam, for complex maths exams that was necessary, yes, especially when homework was involved.

    I was probably underachieving for my skills at school (don't know how you can say it without letting it look like an indirect self-praise? ). The thing is grades are to a very big part determined simply by quantity of active participation in class. You can have good grades in exams (and I mostly had, only sometimes when I was too lazy I had only average grades, rarely very bad ones) and may be chosen to participate passively (heh) and give good answers, but end up still with the same or a worse grade than someone who talks only crap (but a lot, actively) and has average grades in exams. I also often didn't do my homework but that again had somehow no impact on your grades anyway.

    However, I didn't care too much about grades in the later years. They were also not relevant for my future, because I didn't need better grades than I had for studying. In my study right now I am mostly limited by laziness and some exams where virtually everyone gets at best an average grade if he passes because the exams are very hard or very short on time for the amount of things to do. But my grades are going in an ok'ish direction I think overall (especially the trend is good, since in the latest exams I did overall very very good). No grades for participation in class


    edit: With underachieving I mean I could have better grades. It is not like I did bad at school (at least not to a degree that I would be in any time in danger).

    I think INTPs do great during school, since there is a huge variety of disciplines and there's always something different to learn, so boredom becomes less of a problem. On college, however....
    I'm not gonna brag about my accomplishments though.

    At op -

    Though out of this world and oblivious at times (most times) xNFPs are the most brilliant of all types academically. I believe there was a survey done and xNFPs came on top. I have a INFP cousin who is brilliant. Just brilliant. She is out of this world academically. At med school infact. She became the island 72nd as I recall. Though not as socially clever, manipulative, charming as I (ENTPs).

    Infact the reason given at the OP are the exact reasons why that particular type would be really good at school.

    Ne - grasps theory very well, sees patterns, enjoys new ideas, is creative

    Fi - has a strong value system, albeit detached from the external standards. May or may not value traditional education. This probably has the most bearing on whether an INFP chooses to make the effort. Fi is also a rational cognitive function which evaluates and reasons. That makes it has a lot of potential for critical thinking skills so useful in an academic setting.

    INFPs are also over-represented in colleges and universities according to some studies (can't find the link, sorry), so it seems they do well enough to pursue higher education & to be accepted there.

    Personally, school was a breeze for me & I had excellent grades. I might have "under-achieved" in that I slacked because I got bored, but I still did much better than most of my schoolmates. College was also pretty easy, and I enjoyed it a lot more.

    My class' valedictorian is an INTP with like six million service hours and a resume that would bring an admissions officer to tears, soooooooooo

    The ExTPs I know are the ones who tend not to give a damn. But then again, work ethic is almost all in the upbringing.

    From my personal experience:

    Fi = What's the point? Why should I bother?
    Se = Desperately staring out the window at freedom
    Ni = Random ideas that aren't easily verbalised or applied to anything

    wow you're really an arse. you know what, before i read your thoughts, off the top of my head i was just thinking ESTP. and guess what? it's actually your type.

    I= not participating
    N= no common sense

    P= lazy slobs

    Or maybe INTPs, since they're the same as above except their "T" is more worried about Star Wars, RAM drives and tantric philosophy than academics, and they seem like smartasses.

    No offense of course. I can see someone coming at me with a derogatory ESTJ letter breakdown. lol (But don't do that, focus on my question.)
