    I REALLY don't get why they made it like this. Why? Why? It doesn't make any sense at all. It only bores students because 1. the topics are too far from what they know 2. Far from seeing possible practicality. I had to learn all about it in my private time, and I finally found meaning in them.

    I found tons of meaning and utility in school. The annoying thing was that the teachers supposedly teaching the material didn't even know what they were teaching. Way too many teachers were just reading from a script without even understanding their own material.

    I did terrible in high school because as I put it then, they were teaching everything they taught in grade school just with more detail. I also hated the rules, like if you were a minute late to class due to a line in the ladies room, they would ensure you don't go to class.

    In "tardy sweep" once I was confined to a room where I had to spend the period writing the school rules. The paper I turned in read as such.

    Rule 1: If you do not want go to class, we will strictly enforce that you are unable to go to class.

    Etc.

    I didn't like the hypocrisy either, nor the idea of group discipline.

    During college I was a model student, with As for the most part.

    They exist

    One of my best friends (ENTP) did this for a long time. I believe he enjoyed tormenting or toying with his educators and embraced his position at the very bottom of our class, but then decided to stop and got some stupidly huge number on his college placement exams

    He is going to law school

    He "got it" eventually

    You have to abide by certain rules, even if you don't like them, in order to function optimally

    Sounds cool to me. I love going more in depth into things!

    Once I get the point, I don't really care about the details. Usually, I have gathered the details I think are relevant the first time around. The rest is just fluff.

    I can see the sensor-intuitive difference here... I don't think the rest is fluff at all.

    I doubt it is sensor/intuitive. Probably there are some ESTPs that would agree with me, and INFJs that would agree with you.
