    I got 12, which is a bit odd considering that a lot of stuff i am interested in has to do with math, but i supposed other types of "MO's" would have different oddities.

    I don't know if it is an INTP test. But it does seem to test an affinity for abstract systems to the exclusion of other things.

    In that sense, I am working on "getting cured" also. But considering abstract thought is a large source of my motivation in day to day life (in that it actually gives me a great deal of energy and stamina), I can't look at these tendencies with disdain, or take an attitude that these tendencies are "beneath me."

    A person should be true to themself.

    One big reason why I think this test looks for INTP traits is my experience with graduate school (and also later working with a lot of university Mathematics faculty). There were two groups of students in graduate school: the Masters students and the PhD students. I didn't know why at the time, but I didn't really fit in with either group. Now I know why. The PhD students were mostly INTP's with a few other NT types thrown in. The Masters students were mostly sensors. I always felt like I acted "nerdier" than the Masters students, but not as "nerdy" as the PhD's. This is because while INTP is probably the most sterotypically nerdy type, just being an NT made me pretty nerdy in itself.

    Anyway my experience is that mathematics PhD's are at least 50% INTP's (possibly a higher percentage than that). Because of this I think this mathmo test is testing somewhat for traits that an INTP mathematician would specifically have.

    6 matho points.

    Sadly, I've actually done worse than that on a math test before

    A couple of guys I went to college with would have got close to a full score on that.

    I think you need to add a point to your score: "Are you either hopelessly incompetent or frighteningly competent at mental arithmetic?"

    I am no mathmo. But it would be OK if I was.
