    Default Do NTs have trouble with homework?

    I am supposed to be doing it now, but I can't concentrate for more than a few minutes. My mind keeps going off on tangents and thinking about things I find more interesting.

    Who doesn't? >.>
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    Believe me. I really wish I didn't have to do it. I'm not going to get it all done and I'm going to hand it in late. And then fail school.

    I always hated it, but I still managed to get most of it done. I would normally wake up an hour before school and rush through it all, then finish it up in other classes.

    I've found that NTs have trouble with any work that they find to be trivial and menial.

    NTPs especially have trouble doing homework that does not appeal to their particular interests or pique their creativity/curiosity.

    NTJs have trouble doing homework that they cannot see as directly useful to their broader aims/goals.

    Usually, it's not a matter of being intellectually capable of doing the homework. It's a matter of being interested in the homework enough to let the homework take away from other tasks in which the NT could be engaged.

    I know that I personally put off tedious work until the very last minute because I find that it takes away from the other things in which I'm interested. I know that it's necessary to do the homework to contribute positively to my grade in the class, but that's often not enough of a reason to put every ounce of effort into work that I find menial/boring.

    I do my homework when it's already due and I'm inside the classroom and the teacher's asking for it.

    I did that too.

    Now I'm at university, I wake up at the crack of dawn to get the assessment in by 2 PM.
    Um, yeah.
