This interesting, insightful article talks about how cognitive functions and MBTI types can be misdiagnosed as learning disabilities, and consequently lead to underachievement or insecurities in children.
Here is a slightly blurry image from the article which shows how what's perceived as an issue is interpreted differently in (A) giftedness and (B) in type.
Another slightly blurry image from another awesome article (http://typeindepth.com/2013/11/a-pla...s-of-learners/ ) shows the percentage of kids in a particular school identified as at-risk and drop outs compared to the percentage of local teachers and Canadian population. (Author is a Canadian educator).
The highest drop out rates in this school (compared to national population) were that of ESTPs and ISTPs, and ExxPs in general. The highest at-risk rates were that of ExxPs followed by INTPs.
In what way was your natural behavior as a student rewarded or considered flawed based on what people (adults and other students) around you valued? How much of that feedback/labeling helped you change your behavior in a good way? What made you feel insecure? What did you see as pointless? Please share your experiences.
What would you do to change the education system?
