    Hardly studied, ended with near perfect scores for 3 maths subjects in final year of school. Didn't take uni maths much more seriously.

    Just a bit curious here... how did you get a math part of an IQ test? I have not heard of one. Such a test would probably be biased towards those who have taken harder math classes.

    BTW, it is an interesting pattern here of NFs who are very talented at math and also don't like it I am pretty opposite because I am probably somewhat close to average yet enjoy math very much.

    Why must the NFs hog the math skills they don't even wish to use?


    (can I has some?)

    I'm awful at maths. Always have been. Even when somebody asks me the simplest question like "What's 2 + 2?" I pause and go "...4?"

    oh, it's like that in many stuff in life.. probably many very talented people in sports, music etc.. dont appreciate their talent.. because they don't feel at home with it. i don't think it's unusual.

    but yeah interesting pattern of disliking math and being talented.. though i'm pretty sure that of very talented people in math there are maximum 20% and probably on 10% of NFs, rest are all NTs..

    I think math is pretty easy as it's just simple logic. My highest SAT score was in the math portion, and I hadn't taken a course in it for a year...

    Um no, that's just arithmetic. Higher level mathematics gets very abstract and much more difficult.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I did pretty well in a trigonometry course I took, which is a bit more than arithmetic and pretty challenging.

    I think it depends on what people call "math."

    math is everything from low level, first grade, to "higher" math.. if one call himself talented I suspect high school math is piece of cake for him.

    calling math easy is... well.. obviously you didn't see higher math
    ex... on competitions, at least in Europe, we have 4,5 hours to solve 4 math problems, and only winner sometimes gots 100%... and average is 20/100... (on National level -so from those around 20-25 people who already qualified on lower levels..)
