    Good at it and I enjoy it on some level, but not like I love the arts. I tutor HS students in math for extra cash & I enjoy teaching them actually.

    Hard to tell. I was very good early on, later got a bit weaker at school... probably because I was just being too lazy to learn really, didn't to homework etc.; still was in advanced math course and made my Abitur among others in Maths, with average grade. Sometimes was still having very good grades (when I learned a bit, heh).

    So I would say there are people who are better, but I was still better than the average I guess. If I would learn more I could be pretty good I think. Now at studies I have to do some maths again, but it is basically stuff we made already at school, just explained in complicated. More theory, less praxis.

    Well, I voted for NF + good + enjoy at end. Actually when I have any clue about what to do, I even enjoy doing it, although it is not my favourite task I would live for.

    Pretty typical for an N. I'm actually weird in that I am good at number-crunching.

    This site is like 85% N, though. I assume SJs are good at number-crunching.

    NF, not the best at math, but I really like the theory behind it. I'm better at geometry or math that has a formula I can apply to things. I like trigonometry and physics based math. Word problems and arithmetic are lost on me. I appreciate the theories behind calculus, I think it is a work of genius (thank you Issac Newton!), still, I probably couldn't solve the problems very well. It's a weird relationship I have with math, something I admire, but not gifted in it.

    In terms of the logical/mathematical section of Gardner's Multiple intelligences, I am great with deductive reasoning/ empiricism, but don't ask me to do a math problem!

    My math teacher kept saying how impressed she was at my math skills. But honestly, the only reason I'm any good at math at all is because of her. She's an awesome teacher. My strong point is algebra, and I like doing percentages and stuff, but doing math in my head... is not good. Blargh. (I don't LURVE it, but) it's all very well if I myself decide to do some math, but if I'm under some kind of pressure (like on a test or in a game) I hate it. I just can't think that fast on my feet when it comes to math.
    Just because I'm an INFP doesn't mean I'm emo!

    I took calculus for fun, if that answers any questions

    I also installed a few extra statistical packages, including SPSS on my home computer

    I'm the opposite way. I can figure tips fairly easily, but I'm not particularly good at higher maths.
