Ah, no. I'm better at physical sciences involving causeandeffect, as well as equation application than concepts that constantly have the rules rewritten.

INTP,
Neutral Good/Lawful Good even split. 5w4 sp/sx melancholic/supine, even split. Yes, I stole this method of placement from black cat.

Wha
Why all the math hate? Math is beautiful!
"The mathematician does not study pure mathematics because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it and he delights in it because it is beautiful."Enneagram: 5w4 592 (5w4 9w1 2w1) sp/so
"Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."  Greg King
The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

Turtle Geometry as a means of exploring trig and calculus? Sculptural math?
Ahhh ... well why didn't you just say SO?
With how many forms of Geometry are you familiar?
Have you every heard of `Turtle Geometry' or `Turtle Graphics'?
Turtle Geometry  The MIT Press
Turtle graphics  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
How about polygonal chains?
Polygonal chain  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Do you suppose a polygonal chain could be used to draw trigons, trilaterals, or  gasp  `triangles' ... or a connected series of triangles?
How about using a polygonal chain to draw a 3sided `hedron' or perhaps 4 of these to produce a 3dimensiaonal 4hedron ... tetrahedron?
Every seen `math' in sculptural form?
I've exhibited an object made of nothing but equilateral trigons formed into tetrahedrons which are formed into decahedrons which are then formed into a dodecahedron ... wherein each `lateral'/side is really a hollowshafted cotton swab.
I've also exhibited `regular solids' approximated by joining together hula hoops.
Regular Solids
Here's something my friend, Pavel, produced after receiving a picture I sent him of a dodecaHulaHoop `sculpture'.
http://www.elica.net/site/museum/Hoola%20Hoops.jpg
And yes, there are more mathoriented pics to be seen at that site.
Elica Museum
So ... what might you discover or learn to motivate you better learn Trigonometry and/or `The Calculus'?
What might inspire you?

Is that you playing a guitar?
You never noticed the math in music?
How about this?

It was an NF who posed the silliness and allinclusiveness of the form all <Kersian Temperament type>'s and no one overtly responded to that.
So NOW you're getting huffy about stereotyping? :workout:
I have a pair of INTP friends married to each other.
They both play music.
One of them selflabels `math tard'.
My brother is an ENTP and did much better gradewise in highschool than I.
He boards airline passangers for a living ... doesn't use his ability to `do math'.
I've used math professionally through computer programming.
I've repackaged `math' as art ... and gotten away with it.
I've discussed mathrelated topics on web groups.
Are there any acrosstheboard stereotypes which hold for NTs ... or NFs?
I believe that only the NTs pump blood and breathe.
What you ENFP bloodless  or bloodlicking  freaks do which is different from NTs is anybody's guess

The 5w4 loverofbeauty perhaps.
v from 5Enneagram Type Five  AllPersonality.com
People Of this subtype are more emotional and introverted than Fives with a Sixwing, although paradoxically, they tend to be more sociable than the other subtype. As a result of their Four component, they are also more interested in the personal and intrapsychic. The two types also have some significant differences in their approach. Fives are cerebral, holding experience at arms length, while Fours internalize everything to intensify their felling. Despite these differences  or because of them  these two personality types make one of the richest subtypes, combining possibilities for outstanding artistic as well as intellectual achievement.
In healthy people of this subtype, we find the union of intuition and knowledge, sensitivity and insight, aesthetic appreciation and intellectual endowments. Fives with a Fourwing are likely to be involved in the arts as writers, directors, designers, musicians, composers, choreographers, and so forth. This subtype has been somewhat overlooked in many descriptions of Fives because they do not fit the stereotype of the academic/scientific Five (the Five with a Sixwing). This subtype is more synthetic in its thinking pulling things together and seeking out new ways of looking at things. Also, Fives with a Four wing are drawn to those areas in which there is less emphasis on experimentation and data collection than on intuition and comprehensive vision. This subtype is particularly aware of  and on the lookout for the  beauty in a mathematical formula for example. For this subtype beauty is one of the indications of truth, because the order which beauty represents is a confirmation of the objective rightness of an idea.

Yes, we 5w4 types can experience what others call `math' as beautiful.
While the SJs and pragmatists of the world look for utility to justify the forthem `chore' of doing math the 5w4 may be having an aesthetic experience.
I wish I had tallied up all the hours I've (mis)spent playing with Collatz Conjecture.

No accounting for taste ... is there?

I'm good at math but not really good though. I study hard before each exam so i do well on it...but lose my edge right after the exam...and have to study hard again for the next one. Its almost like the Tangent curve.with the asymptote being the exam date, and the curve being the mathknowledge .lol
however, im able to find an answer to most puzzles...and or math problems through intuition??? even though i might have a hard time proving it. this does not, of course, include answers which are heavily numeric.
http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...through8.html
^^ The answer for this puzzle popped up for me in about 2 seconds after i read it...but i had to then try plugging in values to that theory to prove to myself that it works. I don't know if this is the work of introverted intuition, but i have the same feeling of the answer popping up, when playing really complex strategy games.
Maybe its about seeing the big picture, but getting bogged down when it comes to details. i donno.
Ps: i hate math though....just cos one's good at something does not mean he/she has to like itExtraverted  25 Introverted  75
