    I'm am and have always been terrible with math. Then again, perhaps I'm not an INTP.

    I still doubt that even interest would, or could be, possibly correlated with cognitive function. Maybe the Nx and Tx users might favor it more, but I see no reason why a majority of say IxFP's or ExFJ's wouldn't possible be interested in such subjects. Perhaps a poll that posed the question could shed some evidence on the matter.

    I suck at math but tested into calculus on a multiple choice test.

    In that vein, I know a few SJs who really like the subject because they find its certainty almost therapeutic. And who also happen to be a lot better at it than me. Not that I don't know any NTs who really like it and are better at it than me.

    They were all pretty humble. Except for one INTP. But everyone had a love/hate relationship with that guy.

    I think it's pretty cool, and I feel like a math wizard when I can do it well while actively using my critical thinking skills (as opposed to just memorizing the formulas and letting the magic work itself), buuuutt... yeah, not my cup of tea.
