The whole NT math/science stereotype (especially science) is more characteristic of Te users or ENTPs (they need stuff to play with). INTPs can be attracted to humanitarian topics for a number of reasons:
- As non-directive types, we are incurably lazy. Beyond high school level, math and science require some degree of dedication.
- We live in our heads and aren't compelled to change our environment (Te) or
break thingsexplore our surroundings like ENTP (Ne-Ti)
- Fe is our Anima - aka the "aspirational" function. We are both puzzled and fascinated by the mystery of socialization.
