They are no longer acceptable entrance materials into the prominent high IQ societies, as far as I know.
    Yes, well. It's not scientific. I'm just talking about walking in and testing offhanded aptitude, which serves pretty well at illustrating the point at hand.

    Since I don't do the rote thing, I don't really study. Never have much understood the point of it. I figure if I don't have a subject down by the time of a test there's no good forcing the issue.

    The answer is no....personally, I've done well in math up to senior year in high school, where I got a progress report for reaching a D in Calculus, halfway into the second semester. I took two semesters of Calculus in college, after a while I couldn't be assed to care and I ended up with C's in both Calc 1 and 2. In hindsight I should've put forth slightly more effort, but that is hindsight.

    I freaking hate math. I love geometry but algebra is the devil's spawn. But that might have to do with having terrible math teachers from 8th grade onward.

    if i really AM an INTP and not an ISTP...then absolutely not.

    as a matter of fact, i have documented learning problems that deal with abstract (ie algebra and higher math, among other things) thought processes. of course this is at least partially due to my disability being spina bifida- having a spinal cord problem plus hydrocephalus that required a shunt certainly had some sort of impact on my brain...

    this is the point where i sit here and get lost in theoretical questions of whether or not that changes everything in regards to me and the MBTI

    ok i'm done.
