    Default Are all NTs good at math?

    Rid me of the stereotype.

    Another question: What are Calculus and Trigonometry for?

    Perhaps I should JFGI. *shrugs*
    Just because I'm an INFP doesn't mean I'm emo!

    probably not. Generalizations are almost never always right.

    There are plenty of real world applications for both calculus and trigonometry in areas like scientific research, navigation, engineering etc.

    Nah, I know a couple ENTJs that struggle w/math. I, as an ENFJ, can grasp math much better than them. One of them is struggling to get a C in Algebra+Geometry. I know this is purely anecdotal but it shows that NOT all NTs are good at math.

    I am not *amazing* at math...but I am damn good at mental calculations and geometry and formula stuff and figuring out how to do math problems, instead of following those STUPID stupid rules

    Okay, things I can figure out on my own...I don't like some formulas (had a hard time with acceleration and velocity)
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    No.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Yeah, when someone asks If ALL ____ are good at this, there is a extremely slim chance that the statement is true.
