Thinking vs Feeling is about preference not ability. Come on, we should know this.
Same with Sensing vs Intuition. While it's true that a lot of intelligent people prefer Intuition, that doesn't mean that if you're a senser you're stupid or if you're an intuitive you're smart, or if you're smart you're an N.
Usually these kind of things can be boiled down to "that person's not an NT... they aren't smart like me!" (except for if they are an INFJ who can do everything!) Ironically, it demonstrates a pretty low level of understanding of what NT means to say something like that.
And I think I've toned down a lot of my natural N-ness externally simply because it can't be communicated well. So when I talk to people externally I am more likely to point out obvious facts in front of us both even when the underlying thing that makes me wish to point out those facts could be considered internalized intuition.
I do not think that one is bad or good at something just because they are F or T. Actually, most people then would type me as T because I am still and always was good in science and math. I was raised in an environment and went to schools that had a substantial appreciation for it. I got a diploma as a chemical-technician analyst in the high-school (my high-school was set-up similarly as STEM schools are but with a heavier concentration on chemistry organic, physical, quantitative, qualitative, stoichiometry, hours and hours in a high-quality lab and so on). However, it came naturally to me. I did not struggle with it, and I liked math and science genuinely not in an "I can do it, but I do not like it" way. If it is not for chemical hypersensitivity that comes with fibromyalgia and my sisters' asthma (my sister was also into chemistry and attended classes with me because of profound hearing loss), I would probably be a chemist or a chemical engineer. I always have loved chemistry, and also I have loved genetics and molecular biology. Nowadays, I wish we studied creative writing more and also languages so that we have a broader field in regards to careers. I hate that I am lacking in something that I was able to develop the potential in. However, life is short, one cannot do everything. If it is not for this forum, I would never find out that MBTI apparently heavily influences what one is good at. It is more what MBTI related sites recommend in terms of carriers, it does not dictate anything. As a said before, MBTI is just a foundation one builds their mental house on. None of us are replicas of other people within our types.
