    For me the data just went in and stayed there. I never needed to study... Except for math.

    People think I am intelligent, but I know better.

    My little 17-year-old INFP bro won some award for his math contest ranking in the country this past June; he never studies. He just gets calculus and theoretical math really well.

    It made me feel better to know he was absurdly gifted at math, actually, because I had bought this "Speed Mathematics" book and began to trudge through it with great effort for about three weeks. He borrowed it for 45 minutes and got to the point where he could use the tips and tricks better than me.

Sometimes I feel like people forget that NFs (or any other type, really) can be just as intelligent as, say, an NT.
    I was in direct competition with two male NTPs in school and I frequently blew their doors off, with the open invitation to take the lead away if they wanted to try it (knowing full well that I would be bulldogging them the whole way lol ).

    I'm very competitive sometimes (not ridiculously so, just like a good challenge - it's nice when someone surprises you by running you legless...). You get sharper that way. As long as it's not mean-spirited, I'm hip to it.

    Besides, it was fun to trade paint.

    I remember eating lunch with an ISFJ hellion friend of mine. We were both astonished to realize we were reading "Hyperspace" at the same time. haha! He was a cunning guy.

    If you use your intelligence, no problem. There is no need to study. But for people who get average grades and are super intelligent and THEN make excuses.....Gahhhhh!

    btw, can you teach me how to do that?!

    I did that. But my excuses were valid in my own special way.

    I absolutely could not pay attention in class. NOT.AT.ALL. It felt like some kind of medieval torture sitting through these lectures, teachers talking, taking way too long to go over something. Ay yay yay.

    Bribes, threats, punishments from my parents wouldn't even work.

    It was torture.

    I never went back to school and it is highly likely that I never will.

    Please do not take this the wrong way - I do not mean it as an attack - but I just do not GET that. I mean, maybe this is my SJ talking, but why would you not show your intelligence since you have it? Many people would do anything to have brains like that....And you do not want to waste what you have....

    LL, I honestly couldn't help it. As soon as I got out of school it was like being released from prison.

    I also couldn't pay attention enough to remember assignments, bring the right books home to do homework or whatever else was needed.

    My grades solely rested on classwork, tests and the quartlerly/yearly exams.
