    My best friend is an INFP (there's no question about it... we've been bffs since 2nd grade, and I assure you, she's 100% INFP). She got a perfect score on the math section of the SATs and GREs, scored the highest possible score in the AP calculus and physics tests, and is currently working on a PhD in physical chemistry at Stanford (a math-heavy discipline).

    I see proficiency with numbers as a talent, something unrelated to personality type. What you do with that talent, however, is.

    yeah.. but one would expect (maybe) that person has developed the best talents / skills that has biggest preferences for. because no mather the talent you need to practice skill, especially math...
    ex. i remember spending very much time in first 6-7 years (so from 3-4-7 what i remember) thinking about math stuff, i was imagining some riddles in my head, counting constantly something, and mostly doing stuff like YES, NO, IF -THEN, OR.. (basics of programing)... but I was def NF child despite that.
    I wanna say I doubt I'd develop talent without spending time thinking like that wshile so young when brain still develops and it's plastic... so maybe there's inborn genetical predisposition for math talent - ex. better plasticy of brain to make better synapses in that brain areas... but personality type is thought to be inborn too... all in all it's more logical that one will develop skills that are linked to prefered function. but then again there's Ne which is much bigger factor in math than T.

    I'm saying it isn't linked to prefered cognitive function. And that last sentence is absurd.

    Maths has always been a strong point for me, however, I wouldn't really see that as a surprise, whilst I would expect NTs to be strong at logic NFs are known to excel at abstract thought which moves Maths from a science to an art...

    Yes, I won a number of math awards in school and was in the enrichment/gifted math programs. I'm super fast at calculations.

    The ENFP part of it is I loved the challenge of solving a math problem before everyone else. If I wasn't faster than someone else I would force myself to get better. I love challenges otherwise I can get bored with things.

    yep, to me also the challenge was big part of it, i like to compete, and win heh.
    ha ha, look, it's even mentioned in ENFP profile : Amazingly, some ENFPs are adept at exacting disciplines such as mathematics.

    If you mean that absurd is part about Ne being bigger factor than T; I strongly disagree.
    Ne is for ideas, T is only to put on paper what you connected with Ne, and to sellect which of it leads somewhere.
