    Wow- how do you deal with him being an INTJ mother?
    How do you handle the school issue with him?

    I had an ISFP mother who had no structure growing up so I had no structure and kick-butting and was just curious.

    In high school I did extremely poorly. I never applied myself because I thought it was boring and stupid. I went to a private elementary school and by the 5th grade I had already done most of the stuff I would have to revisit in the 8th and 9th grades in public school. As a teenager I almost never went to class and never did any homework.
    In college though, I make A's and B's.
    The difference is that I'm interested in school now and I'm actually learning things, which I love, instead of just mindlessly regurgitating.

    I guess the school question is about intrinsic or extrinsic goals. the ones who liked school, liked the subjects because they found it interesting. but if the goals were forced on them, then school would probably suck.

    I think it's more of a genera psychology question, rather that a MBTI question , could be wrong

    Well firstly, I am 16, so I am still in school.
    Currently I am a junior in high school.
    I am also a freshmen in college.
    My high school GPA is like 3.6
    My college GPA is like 3.5

    I never have done good in grammar.
    I do good in sciences and histories and enjoy them.
    I do good in writings and maths, but I don't "enjoy" them, the only reason I like them is because I am good in the class.

    I do fairly well I'm a lazy bastard and don't do things as well as I could most of the time, though. I can pass any class just by being there, more or less. I might be going for a PhD in behavioural sciences, starting this autumn... And then I will be much more motivated. I'm actually interested in that. But things like biology and such bores me to DEATH.

    In elementary school I did well enough, never straight A's or anything. I just did the work, wasn't striving for good grades and developed a hate for homework early which didn't help. I did terrible in high school, becoming a school skipper and finishing high school via GED, I did bad in college too, but I'm shaping up now and getting better grades. Taking a different attitude towards school, a place to learn rather than a dump that passes out degrees.
    What a waste of life..

    Which brings me to correct myself, I have never done well in the subject of grammar.

    I was homeschooled from birth until the end of my secondary education. I always "did well" in that I gained lots of knowledge and developed an intense passion for learning. I think that contributed a lot to my 4.0 gpa in college. I just love learning about anything, and I'm always willing to put school first, work hard, come up with new ideas, and apply my skills.

    I always thought staying up listening to music and zombie/sleeping through school was more worthwhile.

    I naturally did well in the analysis of ideas and creativity, and making connections subjects. I did terribly elsewhere, even in the subjects I was interested in.

    And I procrastinated, of course, so I was never going to do well.

    School was hard and I didn't enjoy it.

    --
    In secondary school, the classes were larger so I generally got by unnoticed. However, in college, the classes were smaller so I used to miss classes simply to avoid answering questions.

    If I cram (procrastinator) and I care about the subject matter, I'll do really well in exams. But it takes me a long time and dedication to get into something.
