    I actually find half of the subjects and hobbies of the textbook INTP either boring or just plain hard.

    Maths: D grade.
    Science: I failed biology, the easiest of the three sciences.
    IT: My ESTP brother had to help me with my coursework in order to pass.
    Law: Thought about taking it, then realised the course sounded dull.
    Chess: I don't think I've ever won a game.

    The only subjects I'm good at are English language and literature (but I dislike the latter). I'm probably just an example of a dumb INTP.

    Edit: Having said that, I enjoyed biology; I just never seemed to get a decent grade in the exam. Plus, our coursework was about osmosis in potatoes. How can anyone find the motivation to do something so exhilirating?
    Um, yeah.

    I initially read profiles etc. which didn't seem so fixed on the mathematical/scientific- ness but reading more it's being stressed more. And given my tendancy to second guess myself, it's kind of making me dismiss what I thought fitted best. But the whole thing is basically going in circles anyway.

    That happened to me, too, but then I found that my first guess was the correct one. No description will fit you 100%, and you might identify with others as you're thrust into different life circumstances that warrant the use of other cognitive functions.

    Nobody obliges you to be interested in anything particular. An INTp might apply his INTp skills to graphic design, language, fashion, whatever.

    my experience with ENTJs is that many like math and business, but have little interest in science, while INTPs like math and science, but have little interest in business, outside of what they think they need to understand to keep their bosses happy

    still, just because you don't like either doesn't mean you're not INTP, interest in specific fields obviously will depend on individual experiences

    Either way, ENTPs show our superiority again by understanding math, science, and having the business sense to put it all together!

    Yeah, that. Also consider there's larger factors than personality theory that determine what you enjoy, such as your culture, community, and what your parents liked to study.

    I like everything, and I mean everything. See my signature below, after the disclaimer.

    I will admit though, I am a biochemist with heavy physics background, so rule as you may with that observation.

    Hard sciences is about the only field of academics I really can't stand. That and literary analyses.

    My thoughts exactly. The last science class I even partially enjoyed was physics, and that's because I got to take the one without the lab (with all the other non-physics majors). I really don't enjoy labs.

    I kind of liked math when I was younger, mostly because the classes were predictable and basically standardized. Then I decided that it was irrelevant to my interests and stopped caring about my grade in the class. This has resulted in my present ineptitude at calculus (got a C in undergrad).

    Like you, Pouissan, I enjoy languages. It's the only thing I won any award for in high school (while all the others in the smarty pants group had a bunch).
