    Default NT's Opinion on school

    Being an NT,

    Did you excel at school?

    Is theory easier for intuitive types?

    Did you find yourself drifting into your own world, wanting to come up with your own theory's, not really caring about the ones being taught?

    In your opinion what temperament are schools most geared towards? SJ, SP, NT or NF ?

    Any other thoughts on school?

    Perhaps. Easy for me.

    Yes

    Yes and no. Had my own ideas, but was interested in other theories as well.

    SJ, totally

    Any other thoughts on school?
    I absolutely loathed high school, despite doing extremely well. School didn't get interesting until college. Now there's no other place I belong or would rather be.

    1. I excelled when I cared enough to do the work.

    2. It's extremely easy for me.

    C. I drifted into my own world when certain theories (which I could poke holes into) were regarded as law. But I've always been generally interested in new theories and stuff, so I'm in the middle.

    F. SJ for sure.

    5. I absolutely abhorred Middle School. It was like a rehash of elementary school. High school was also retarded, but part of that was because I personally hate how many are structured so that you have to take X of such-and-such class and you can't focus on what you'd like to learn. The structure is retarded and high school did not help me prepare for college at all, which by the way, college is pretty awesome.

    Mostly. I suck at classes that require mass, mindless memorization (like Bio).

    No idea, but it's not too bad for me. I like theory classes.

    I drift into my own world a lot, but I usually think of my "own theories" after class, not during.

    School is run horribly. Grading is a negative reinforcement system that usually fails to quantitatively show someone's knowledge gained from a class.

    Classes that require mass memorization need to at least have some sort of dynamic learning experience, where people can use all the crap they memorized and really apply it to something interesting (in-part to show the person WHY they just memorized an entire textbook).
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Almost flunked out of highschool, probably because it is run by sensors.

    Did well in college.

    I did really well in elementary school and got accepted into a gifted program. But sometime around middle school I figured out the luxury of rushing my work to extend my leisure time to the max. It was a constant battle to extinguish the plague of busy work.

    "Busy work!" GAAAAH! I HAAAAAATE BUSY WORK. RRR. You've got no idea. Stupid German bitch, taking my fucking book away because I was reading in class because dipshits were all in the way of the fucking board so I couldn't see what was written on it. HATE.

    Are you implying that theory is taught in school? If so, where? What kind of theory? I never encountered it. If school had been oriented toward theory, instead of rote memorization and repetition, I might have had a different vector in life.

    Did you find yourself drifting into your own world, wanting to come up with your own theories, not really caring about the ones being taught?
    Pretty much. Or, rather, having to read between the lines and develop my own theories just so I can understand what's in front of me, because none were ever taught to me. And when I'd try to run my ideas past the teachers, they'd just scowl at me and tell me I was doing it wrong.

    In your opinion what temperament are schools most geared towards? SJ, SP, NT or NF ?
    Oh, SJ. Not even an argument there. Ridiculous thing is, the techniques aren't conducive for anyone to learn; they're just set up to allow SJ-types to jump through hoops and claim their credentials, to allow them to make more money in the world. It's a farce.

    Any other thoughts on school?
    A fucking waste of time. At least, as things are set up now.
