    Love math, always have. It's like a puzzle.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I am definitely not "good" at math and I have never enjoyed it. Calculating things in my head, well, I can do it if seriously needed, but other than that I choose not to do it because it takes a really long time and it's so much more easier just to use a calculator. But as I don't carry one with me at all times, I haven't done any calculating with prices when grocery shopping for years now. And that's about it for math in my daily life.

    I was able to maintain a C average in school but, looking back, I might call it a miracle.

    I've never been good at math...
    ... but it's an integral part of life...
    ... in subtle ways...
    ... from playing a syncopated rhythm on the piano...
    ... to measuring ingredients for a cake...
    ... to figuring out the two-point perspective in a painting so that the sidewalk looks flat and the stairs look as if they are really stairs...
    ... to giving the server the right tip...
    it's all math...
    Recently, though, I've found that I like playing games with numbers...
    it can be fun...

    NF, bad at math, never liked doing it

    this does not include basic math, which is obviously pretty necessary

    NF, not good at math, don't like it.

    But I do keep an A in my math classes because I work around my own short comings.

    Math doesn't come easy to me, but that is not an excuse to turn away from it or let your success in it falter. That's just the way I see things.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I am NT, and I studied math. But not only liking determined my decision, it was also career chances.

    What with the people who enjoy doing math and aren't good at it?

    Like with many things, I've got a love-hate relationship. I love figuring out math problems, but I hate doing problems which I understand right away. I didn't get why you had to do 10 exercises on the same subject if you understood it after the first. So I did one or two and then I started daydreaming, even on a test, so I scored 2/10... And I was seen as slow in math... but I've got my come-back . First I understood the "inductive proof" used in science (not math): in order to convince the teacher that you indeed understand, you've got to do it more than once. And then, of course, there was more challenging math with problems that were real puzzles for me. I got interested and if I'm really interested into something, nothing can stop me

    It appears that possibly from the data collected so far in this poll, that people who care about MBTI enough to use the internet to discuss it on forums tend to be good at and enjoy using math (self-assessment)

    Enjoy math, always been my best subject by a long stretch.

    Did you make this up?
