    I consider myself talented at maths. I graduated from one of the best highschools in here, which is a maths one and I was among the first in my class. Ha!!

    I'm great at math when I have a reason to motivate me to do it. Otherwise, I hate it and don't do well at all. As an illustration, I was interested in Geometry and made math honor society in high school. 3 years later, after courses of alegra and trig (so pointless, IMO) I had to take remedial college math. In grad school, I was interested again because I saw how math and stats applied to people in my field - aced those classes with A's. I have to see the connection to the RW or forget it.

    I would not call myself a mathematician at all, but I'll give myself some credit and say I am above average. I did very well in math in HS, took the advanced classes, and was always one of the top students in the class. I actually used to like math simply because it came easily. By the time I got to Pre-calculus in high school, I had lost interest in math & science. My obsession with art/music/literature took precedence over anything else. I studied design in college, and the required math courses for that major were a piece of cake.

    Also, around the time I lost interest in math and science in HS, my teachers got annoyed with me. I still did well and got good grades, but they told me they could tell I was just floating along. I think for an INFP, if something loses importance to us, we'll never reach our full potential for it. We'll do the bare minimum to get by. I'm possibly better at math than say, poetry, but I'd much rather be a poet than a mathematician.

    Math was pretty easy for me to learn, especially in elementary school, when English was probably the toughest subject I learned, being that I didn't attend elementary school that regularly, and the fact that it was a second language.

    I wouldn't say I'm pro at math, but I can pick up on it pretty well.. minus the minor flaws in details when calculating long problems by hand.

    I'm more comfortable with math, and remembering things visually, if it correlates in any way..

    I would say above average. I was doing high school algebra by the time I was 12, and was into cars and science and Stuff. But at about age 13, I looked at my life and realised that I didn't want to keep up what I was doing.(Of course, I was grappling with what it meant to be human, and how one defines a person, and if humanity even exists at all. (Thank the Matrix Trilogy for that thought.)) So since then, I've been floating around, trying to figure out what I want to do. Does that answer your question?

    I've always been good with numbers in general. It's like we're friends that just "get" each other, if that makes sense. I've always preferred Algebra and Calculus... but I've neglected math since I had to take so little while in college.
