I'm trying to type the writer David Foster Wallace, who uses proofs and formulas in his writing. I wonder if it makes sense to qualify him as an NT since his love of calculation and formulas. I would assume an NF would be more interested in theory than calculation and formulas.

Does NT necessairly mean math proficiency?

1. Your thread title and OP don't match. In the thread title you're asking if NT qualifies you as having math skills. In the OP, you're asking if having math skills qualify you as being NT.
2. No.

I didn't mean causation exactly, I assume there would be a correlation.

Well, don't you actually mean causation? It's obvious that there's a correlation, no? Mathematics require logic and an ability to map and understand a problem. I'm 1000% sure there's a correlation. But you're asking if it's enough to brand someone NT, which means that S or F and mathematical abilities are exclusive of one another. I wouldn't say that's true.

My math skill suck, too. What I'm asking to all is: does extreme proficiency in calculation and formulas have a high likelihood of being an NT?

How are calculations and formulas different from theory? Fundamental math assumption fail there. Calculations and formulas are derived from theory. That's what makes math so awesome.
