    Hmmm...what kind of NT is he (ENTJ, INTJ, ENTP, INTP)?

    Damn skippy.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I rawk at math.

    It's kind of not fair though. I just know the answer. Like by magic. My brother too. Usually takes us a while to figure out how we got the answer, especially if it's a word problem, my favorite.

    As far as just completely obscure math goes -- shit like (34*67)/15, y'know where there's no situation behind it -- I'm good but it's lame like a lame lamb.

    It's like doing a puzzle with no picture, just white pieces.

    i know 2 INTJs who aren't good at math.

    the third INTJ i know is so-so.

    i know 1 ENTJ who's amazingly good and 1 who's not good.

    lets see....my ENTP bro is pretty damn good, my ENTP ex is also pretty good.

    uh...and my INTP dad is a complete math genius, as is my INTP friend from high school.

    Math always came easily to me (except stats...ugh!) but I never liked it, I think that deserves its own category really.

    I have an MS in mathematics, so yeah I am pretty good. Actually since most of the NT's I have encountered in my life are somehow related to math or science I have this natural bias in my head that tells me that any NT I meet should be drawn to math and the like. I know consciously that its not right, but I've known so many math/science NT's that's what my mind wants to assume.

    I have yet to figure out. I've contemplated everything except ENTJ, although by now I'm sure that he's an I. He's rather anti-authority, has decided that civilization is bad because it is unsustainable, and dropped out of college. He is, however, amazing at chess and the stock market. The way he described his method of investing leads me to think he is INTJ, because he seems to describe Ni rather clearly (despite not knowing what it is), but he also has good Ne, while I don't see as much Te as Ti. I could be wrong though, as he moved out of the house 3 years ago, and has been living in a different city for 2.

    I'm not really that good at it. I took college Calculus classes when I was in high school. However, I don't consider myself good at something unless I understand the theory behind it, and I don't understand how formulas were derived or why they were created.

    I'm NF and I was the average student with math.
    I was somewhat lazy in doing my homework so I think I could have become better in math if I had taken some time for it. But I wasn't interested with math so I never really invested on that.

    LOL. if misery is company, and company is what you're looking for, then Uber, I'm with you.

    Elf's not naturally good at mathematics. I had to study to get an A for it. But guess I'm lucky: I come from a country where the standard grade is 750/800 for the mathematics SATS paper. And 800 is a regular occurrence. Like, every other person in my junior college back then (and even now) gets 800/800.

    In that sense, hothousing and regular practice helps with sucky maths skills.

    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland
