I am not sure on my type (something FP), but I like math and used to be good at it when I took classes. I haven't had much reason to use calculus or statistics or differential equations these days, though, so I'm afraid I don't remember that much of it all...
However, I have confidence that if I needed to I could pick it back up fairly easily.

I don't like it enough to know if I'm good at it.

There are definitely people that think being good at math means being intelligent. I'm not sure if this is a general perception or if this is just a few people here and there.
On another forum I visit, a recent poll was about which college major is the hardest. My answer was that it depends who you are, but all of the poll choices were math heavy. All the geeks basically circle jerked about who was smarter talking about all the math they did in college. It was quite comical to me really, because I know there are subjects that any one of them would have found more difficult than the ones they were discussing. More peopleoriented stuff most likely.

I'm not so good at number crunching, but I can understand math much faster than the average person.

I can't participate in the poll.

I've said the same but I didn't know if there really were people who aren't good but still enjoyed it. An example! YAY! Let's spread the "math is fun" meme!
The setup of the poll is biased... not enjoying math seems the norm... If you can enjoy sports even if you have a feeble condition (me); then surely you can enjoy maths whatever your level.
Chunes, I don't know your level at math, but I hope you have access to gems such as the "square root of two is not a rational" proof or the proof that you can't count the real numbers.Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

I hope this thread enlarges. It would be interesting if Math is truly where NT's at.(because chances are, if you enjoy it, you're good at it.) The true question is do NT's generally enjoy math? The sample would still be too small though, mainly because NT's and NF's are largely populated as oppose to SP's and SJ's. This is then NT vs. NF. Which enjoys it more?

I think math is the ultimate NTP domain. I mean, abstract and internally logic? Discussing theories and ideas while checking it on logic? It's the N side that's extraverted, the T side that's introverted. Math makes only sense within itself.
TeNi combo (NTJ) conquers the world, instead. That's keeping ideas to yourself and expressing your goaloriented side.
Of course, that doesn't mean an ENTP can't prefer physics. Nor that an NF should hate math.
Nobody should hate math.Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
