    It really depends on what school you go to because I intuit the crap out of EVERYTHING and get fairly high marks,
    EDIT:But then again, INTPs are supposedly the archetypal professor types.

    According to a 2003 study the smartest type is INTJ and the dumbest ESFP, but that runs into inevitable flaws with self-reporting bias, mistypes (which occur somewhat amazingly frequently), badly written tests; and to boot I have no idea what the actual margin is.

    So in short, we don't know.

A lot of times I see SJ's doing the most accurate and correct thing that you're supposed to do to succeed. So, SJ's would naturally do best in school.
    I'd put my stamp of approval on this statement.

    My gift is memorization. I can read a text book and absorb it like a sponge. And fortunately for me... Our educational system rewards that ability. High school was a breeze and undergrad wasn't too bad either.

    The problem I am running into in Graduate school is... Professors spend more time asking you to extrapolate your own ideas from information that is presented... Or asking you, "Ok, so your textbook told you that when X happens, Y does this. Now can you tell me WHY you think that happens?" That's where I hit a speedbump.

    One of my chemistry professors keeps stressing that we MUST understand how/why mechanisms act the way they do, because we won't be able to memorize 450 different reactions. My response.... "Wanna bet?" *Patches proceeds to make 450 flash cards*.

    I don't know if other ISTJ's process information the same way I do, but I wouldn't really refer to it as 'smart'. More like a computer. Insert data, and I can repeat it back to you whenever you request it. But I can't make up new data out of thin air.

    This is much like my ex-husband (ISTJ). He could recall stats, every detail learned in school, was fantastic at memorizing formulas, could spit anything out verbatim. And yet when it came to synthesizing information into a new conceptual whole, had difficulties doing it and got frustrated.

    We used to have these discussions about [insert topic] where he'd want to talk about the here and now, as it related to "tried and true" and I'd want to discuss the possibilities. We'd both get annoyed after awhile since it appeared he wouldn't budge. In retrospect, it wasn't wouldn't, it was couldn't.
