    Default MBTI types and Math

    Based on the thread Are all NTs good at math?

    Let me ask you: What's your type and are you good at math?

    "Good at math" can mean a variety of things: calculating things in your head, learning new mathematical concepts, using math in your daily life, explaining how it works, whatever. If you or others consider you good at it, in whatever capacity, let's hear about it. Also, do you enjoy doing math?

    Have at it!
    Just because I'm an INFP doesn't mean I'm emo!

    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.
