    So, are here some other NF mathematicians?

    Like (very) talented for math.
    Because it's a bit confusing for me my math talent because even of tests my T functions are (Ti,Te) on (6,8) places... so...... and I have HUGE dislike towards thinking, logic..


    I've been on many math competitions and it's funny how I remember (before knowing for MBTI) that I sometimes messed up some answers with using F instead T; even when I knew answer I just "felt" this sounds better - and I answered it wrongly.
    okay, that was in 2% of cases but that were noticable nuances for me.



    I think Mondo is also NF-mathematician...
    Any others???
    I'm like this too, I just put it down as having a high IQ and being intelligent in general

    math was my best subject and i have an affinity for numbers in general......better than english historically. however, i'm better at writing now than i am at math now. but Ni and Fe are left-brained functions, supposedly, according to lenore thompson (Truth-and-Language Exegesis) so i guess that's why.

    Aced algebra. Had no clue what I was doing in Geometry and Algebra II. Completely failed Statistics.

    Yeah, I think I suck at math.

    Interesting.
    Since a month ago, I have learned that I'm definitely an NT.. however, I know many NF's who are gifted at math.

    I don't think math ability is related to personality type so much. Rather, interest in math could be related to personality type.

    For instance, it's highly probable that if you take a random INTJ and random ESFP with identical math ability that the INTJ would be more curious and interested in mathematics..

    It isn't a natural thing for me to be doing....but I would say I was above average, but not talented. I have to try too hard. As an engineering friend once said numbers quite clearly are not my friends. Much better at stats. I did that up until my third year of university....I opted out of a Chemistry degree, because of my irrational fear of maths, and fear of brain hemmorhage.
    My maths teacher at school, however felt I had a bit of psychological block, rather than an inability to do math...I sometimes wonder myself. By the time I got to high school, I certainly had devolped deflective behaviours from my mother's inferiority complex, that may well have been one of them.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Oh, no, I think it is linked. I think if you take random NTs and random NFs you'll find much more NTs talented at math, I would say at least 10x more NTs.
    I was in Math competitions on National/European level for few years...which usually lasted for 5-6 days in some town on coast, so 25 best kids from across the country from every generation were there -100 people from highschool all together, and most of them were NTs. Like more than 70%. I was very different from most of them because an F.
    There were many girls (like 1/4 or 1/3) and among girls was a little bit more Fs, but girls were also more NTs.
    It was not because NTs show more interest in math, because in this competitions I'd say it's 90% talent and less than 10% work.

    and I think there were at least 80% Ns.

    so NT was very represented.
    E/I was balanced - half people E half I, or even more Es.
    P/J also - I'm not sure.

    I think from Es there were most ENTJs...


    You have to take into consideration that many NFs bad at math skipped this poll, but probably being an N is already bust in math, and nobody is 100% Fs, many people are borderline T

    I know some NFs who are excellent at math. It just goes to show that when you totally take the human element out of something, you guys make halfway decent NTs.

    I don't really suck at math but I am below average at it because math has never really interested me. Sure, I'm good at some parts of it, I like numbers But I've actually tried really hard to forget the math classes I had in high school. Still gives me the creeps after all these years :horor:
