    Default School subjects in relation to dominant functions

    I was thinking about this during a Chemistry class a day or two ago.
    What functions would give somebody an "advantage" for certain classes?
    For example;
    Ni dominant types might excel in English, and Ti dominant types might excel in Physics.

    What do you guys think?

    I agree with physics being highly Ti oriented. Regarding English, I think Ni would be good reading behind the lines in literature and seeing the symbolism involved. But what if you're just talking about the pesky rules of grammar? I think that's more of a Te thing. If its creative writing, I think either Ni or Ne has an advantage. Fi too, if you're writing from the heart.

    Mathematics, I think is a combination of Ti and Te. Ti is probably more inclined to the theory, while Te is more inclined to the applied. N and S also make a difference, with N being more theoretical and S being more applied.

    Physical education I think would be Se.

    Art would be a mixture of functions. I could see how all the functions could come into play with different types of art emphasizing different functions (realistic looking landscapes vs. more abstract art).

    History would also be a mixture. Si is good at memorizing facts but Ne makes the interconnections between events.

    I'm having a hard time thinking of a subject that would favor primarily Fe. Fe dominants I think would be good in subjects where cooperative learning and teamwork is emphasized.

    Ni and Ti together make an excellent combination for engineering. Te fits in well there too.

    You! Yes, you there! What's on your mind when you're just walking along not thinking about anything?

    Philosophy major here. I'll say the main functions you'll use here are Ti, Ne and Ni. Ti is good for the logical notation stuff so commonly used in good papers, Ne is good to connect fields and get insight into the nature of a problem, Ni is used a lot in the standard to and fro of academia (leaving no rock unturned, counter examples etc.).
