    Some people are harder on themselves/have higher standards than others.

    Oh I get it, it's simple!

    the NTs in this thread who jumped to assess whether or not they were stupid or smart without first realizing the relative and contextual nature of those terms are the "stupid" NTs. The ones that thought about it beforehand and expressed as such are the "smart" ones.

    Understanding theoretical principles has much more to do with Ti than N.

    Understanding abstract ideas is far different from being abstract in perception.

    Also ent, I think if you are convinced of that in tests, it might be a sign of healthy developing Ni. I might be wrong, though.

    Oh also, just for personal experience, I've known an ST that could run circles around me in programming, and smoked me in the classes that we had taken together, just in terms of raw IQ. It was when I would get to the part of the homework that I would find that I was interested in the actual pursuit of knowledge, whereas he intimated to me that he was only interested in the correct answers in order to get a grade, and wasn't really interested in taking the discussions the questions arose any further than they needed to go. That was personally a very frightening eureka right there, but it does all come back to how one chooses to define intelligence. If you define "smart" or "winning" as "getting all the points" or, "getting all the knowledge from a given exercise", or even "getting something out of every experience". Shit, by that last definition a lot of NFs could be smarter than NTs.

    ISFJs don't become successful physicists. All the ISFJs I know hate physics.

    N people have a huge advantage in physics.

    Could you give an example? I found that incredibly big-picture. Also, as an aside, I would contend that several different functions probably grapple with theoretical principles, etc, just in very different ways.

    Yeah and ISFJs are one of the more modest types I think. Could be an ISFJ with a really great work ethic. That's how I imagine most of the SJs able to work in physics got there.
