    i hang out with slackers but the really ironic part is that they look up to ME and here i am complaining about them being slackers.

    and im too unfocused. i'm very good at what i do in the practical world but can barely manage passing the same material in school...unless i get super passionate about it. projects i love, exams i hate.

    I do great at school! I love learning and asking the teachers about all sorts of stuff!

    But what if you think that the teachers are full of shit and you actually know better. That's when it gets tough.

    I would raise my hand and say something along the lines of "I've read in X that it's Z... ?". A teacher totally full of shit probably wouldn't like me because I would constantly correct them.

    And after class I would do my best to avoid them.

    I was a quick learner, partly motivated by the thought that other people might make a higher grade or be more knowledgeable than me. (That's of course when I was focused.)

    Mmm. That's definitely a good strategy

    I did pretty poorly in high school, not because I wasn't capable of grasping the material, but only I didn't make earnest efforts to participate. Basically, I hated both homework and being told when and what to learn; I only ever applied myself to learn what I was interested in at that specific moment, to which my interests would arbitrarily change from one subject to the next. Also, most classwork just seemed like busy work, which I heavily resented doing. I often would get scolded in class for reading ahead to different chapters or reading different course textbooks during another class.

    I did poorly in school. I didn't "get" why I had to be there. To me, it was just a part-time prison. Naturally, I rebelled against my unjust incarceration.

    Do some NTs do badly in school because they're not intelligent enough to understand the material? Undoubtedly, and moreso at higher levels of education.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    me too.

    INTP brother did not-so-well in reading at first. we were really concerned about him not reading... and struggling to read on tests in school... then lo and behold, car magazines. he is now an avid reader.
