    I'm fine with Integrating Volumes. I'm fine with stuff that can be solved with "algebra". It was quite a while ago when I took Multivariable Calculus but I remember that I didn't like the last chapter in Stewart's textbook (whatever it was, I don't remember). I hate the stuff when you have to imagine that there are infinite number of vectors in 3 dimensional space.

    Eh I don't know. I'm ST, and my math skills are awesome. As far as english/verbal skills go though, I could use a lot of improvement. My NF counterparts are far better at that.

    Theory is fine.

    My basic math skills are crap. I keep forgetting zeroes at the end of numbers and things like that.

    Is my NT license going to be revoked now?

    I failed at maths. Too many rules and restrictions; too linear in thinking. Having said that, for my geography coursework I had to do a T-test to calculate the difference in age structure between two settlements, and I found myself enjoying the task of doing the formulae and working out the equations.

    Still, it is a bit too linear for my liking. The thought of getting one calculation slightly wrong (most likely due to pressing the wrong button on the calculator, or worse, not pressing hard enough on a button) frustrates me like hell, because that one minor miscalculation messes the whole thing up, thus getting the answer wrong.
    Um, yeah.

    I think being an NT gives greater speed and ease at learning math, but I don't think the capacity is any greater. In other words, another type could be just as good as an NT at math, but it is likely that the other type had to work harder for it.

    Math just comes more naturally to NTs. imo

    Type has nothing to do with actual intelligence.

    Could that have something to do with the till?
    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?
