Who was talking about linear algebra II proofs?
*Starts sketching complex vector spaces on the board*
No. With the exception of INTJ. NFs and SPs don't alow junk to cloud their mathmatical minds. Junk like other NT interests/blips. As an NT (not speaking for all, damit) i aced all that calculus geo math crap. But never saw math for what it is. Saw it as like a foreign language the mothership brought to earth in blips throughout history. SJ however, is most susceptible to math. Due to their possible insecurities corresponding with proficiency.
everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
Anytime you put in the word "mathematical" anything I'd say the individual must have some understanding of the math to be talking about it...
So for somebody to:
describe some theory in formula => proficient
describe math theory conceptually => presumed general understanding
Thread title question: Does NT necessairly [sic] mean [sic] math proficiency?
Clearly, it's a no. Rational here is only based upon rational rules according to the individual... this does not necessarily have to correlate to logical (mathematical) correctness.
Thread title question in reverse: Does math proficiency means an individual is NT?
That's an even worse question... all types can enjoy math and be proficient at it.

I was so excited when I first succeeded at proving the concavity of some function myself. But if it's something that has to do with visual-spatial intelligence like Vector Calculus, I really hate it. I think if it's pure math, NT people should be fine.
I prefer musical theory.How are calculations and formulas different from theory? Fundamental math assumption fail there. Calculations and formulas are derived from theory. That's what makes math so awesome.
