Have at it!

MBTI types and Math
Just because I'm an INFP doesn't mean I'm emo!

I wonder why this question seems so important. Do people think it's a measure of raw intelligence?

Carl Jung's opinion on math and intelligence:
"It is an assinine prejudice that mathematics has anything to do with the training of the mind . . . Mathematics is not a function of intelligence or logic.
It is a particular gift, like music. You also find a mathematical talent with individuals that are idiotic in every other respect."

NF  Went for Good/Don't enjoy. Although I do to a degree, in small doses, and when alternatives are few.

My math skills are reflective of level/time spent in school. Everything I know was what I learned there..what I was specifically taught.
And on a sidenote, I'm a dropout (or rather, I left highschool with a GED). Technically, I only had 8th grade skills for awhile (seeing that I kept getting expelled and barely experienced highschool education).. but then, I jumped into college at 17, and start learning math on that level. This all tells me that, for the most part, it's a learned skill. I'm sure that I have a breaking point and all that, but... I'm not sure what it is.

I voted not good, doesn't enjoy. I was never terrible at it, but I either got the lesson or didn't. The doesn't enjoy part comes into play as I wouldn't bother to learn what I didn't initially pick up on.

I'm really good at algebra, but not simple math...like when you want to tip your waiter 20% of the check...takes me a while.
