    No. I can do it, but even the simplest of sums requires me to take out a piece of paper and attempt to work it all out.

    Of course the world hasn't got any patience so it doesn't give a fuck about waiting for that.

    I hate maths...why does so much of the world run on system I have never had and will never have any affinity for? Wasted so much time and money trying to get better at it and it was all so I could realise what I already suspected; you are who you are and you will never become good at things you are not built for.

    ps: Didn't vote sorry, because not sure on type.

    I'm fine at it, but I don't really need to use much in daily life. I occasionally break out some simple Algebra for my hobbies, but that's as heavy as it gets.

    Math hates me, but when I took several online math courses in college, it actually began to make sense. Just needed to be able to grasp it in my own non-linear way. Still doesn't come easily, so I voted no.

    It was the most frustrating subject for me, throughout primary school. My dad was in the Navy, so we moved often. I had no trouble adjusting to anything in school- was in accelerated courses, straight A's.. was given awards for creative writing.. but math.. oh, how we loathed one another. Just when I'd begun to understand another section, I'd be moving somewhere else, & it seemed like many teachers skipped around in the textbook; things just weren't consistent from school to school. This led to a lot of anxiety, confusion.. and frustration when my teachers seemed exasperated with me for not understanding their explanations that they'd simply repeat, versus rephrase or show a different approach. I actually remember one used to use this red marker & actually left an angryface/or several sadfaces on one of my quizzes. I think those early years hindered my future classes in jr/high school, since there was already so much negativity/anxiety associated with it by that point.

    Well, i'm not sure what the benchmark is here...op, care to elaborate?
    Is it just peoples own perspectives of what good or bad is in maths or do you have an actual example to go by.
    I'm not naturally inclined if that is what you are asking...well i'm not drawn to it anyway...
    Though i am actually pretty good at it..if i work at it.
    Basic math i always found quite easy... things compute fairly quickly.
    Advanced math i do not have much experience of but i do grasp concepts quickly and when i have attempted to understand particular areas i could focus and learn without much fuss.

    Math was typically my strongest subject in school. I breezed right through it until I got to higher level mathematics like trigonometry and calculus and then I had to actually study for tests. Still did well in them with some effort. I don't think I ever got below a B in a math class. The only thing I truly found difficult in math was those formal proofs. In geometry we had to prove those theorems and I hated that. I intuitively knew it was true but had a hard time trying to 'prove' it.

    I'm terrible at memorization math, I thought math was the worst thing in the world in elementary school.

    I like math that you "figure out." I still don't have my tables memorized. I voted yes because I consider higher math real math vs. memorizing addition tables.

    I think I'm a yes since I did very well in classes and anything written down, but I can't (don't) do math in my head, so things like tips are still annoying.

    I kinda thought matrix algebra in undergrad was the coolest thing ever. /nerd
    Never liked calculus much (or any other kind of math) but I could do it when I had to.
