    Default Any NFs Talented at Math?



    so please answer the poll (and of course it should be your personal impression - paired with your math grades in school, college etc.)



    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 studied finance and performed in the top of my class. Finance isn't really hard math, but if your asking for NFs with a quantitative background I'm one of them.

    But I don't really do much math anymore in college.

    i used to go on math competitions up until age 15. after that, I tried to develop more right brained thinking, since I felt like I was getting too left brained.

    but yeah, i remember our team used to get 1st in math counts competitions for our los angeles region. at the state level, we never got 1st though. never took more than linear algebra in college, which I really liked, especially the proofs. but yeah, i never went much further bc of the whole balanced brain approach I wanted.

    NFP, above average. But I don't really like math. Analysis in particular, is all sorts of boring to me.

    I did very well in math in school. I always got recruited for those statewide math competitions (could anything be more humiliating for a girl in junior high?). I also won an award at high school graduation for being the only student in my graduating class that took every math class offered by the school with all As.

    Having said that, I didn't pursue it in college. I was actually a bit intimidated by "higher math." I can remember being enrolled in a calculus class my first semester. The professor told us on the first day that the class would be highly theoretical and was recommended for math and engineering majors. I dropped it the next morning and enrolled in a calculus for liberal arts majors class....and that was my last math class ever.

    I've always been really good at math (both linear and abstract types), and along with science, it was my most favorite subject of school by far. I took all the advanced courses I could, though I couldn't take all of the ones I wanted to in high school simply because my schedule didn't have enough room for them. I was pretty sad about that. I thought it was funny that I would always be doing the book work in class an entire unit ahead of the rest of the class, and at the same time participating in the discussion about the current chapter from the last unit, and also I'd fly through the tests without checking my work once (I always showed all my work, though, because we were required to.) so I could have more time to read, and still ace them. lol

    I went to a lot of those competitions too, for both math and science.
