  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    In my personal experience, myself and the other ENFPs I've met are not naturally good at math or math-based sciences such as physics. However, in my job I was forced to learn some math to get by. A lot of measurements and fractions, figuring out tolerances, press fits, running clearances, etc...
  2. Advice Center
    Hey there. Recently i posted in advice area that i was dealing with too much pressure on my career. Which made me think about everything i have been pursuing those last years. I started living full time on music like around 4-6 months ago. I started 4 years ago and i'm doing well. I play nice...
  3. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Are you familiar with prime numbers and the statement that every prime number greater than 3 is a multiple of 6 + or -1? That gives us a list where we can find every prime number after 3, but not all of those numbers are prime numbers. That gives us a list that looks like this: 5 7 11 13 17 19...
  4. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I suggest trying this out on your own, even if you don't think prime numbers are interesting, give it a shot. You don't even need to know if 101 is s a prime number or not. All prime numbers greater than 3 are multiples of 6 + or -1. You can do 6's. just write them out with enough space to...
  5. Socionics Forum
    Part 1 is my experience getting into socionics and part 2 is what I'm trying to do to make socionics scientific (which I would appreciate help with) 1. When I first got into socionics, I was offended by the deterministic presentation of the intertype relations and was skeptical if people even...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi there I am very curious about something; ever since I was a child I struggled very heavily with many of the simple "staple" tools we were taught such as basic Mathematics, the "Times Tables" (3x1, 3x2, 3x3 etc...) and the structure of the Alphabetical sequence. Some examples; I do not know...
  7. Myers Briggs Forum
    Ever since I was born, NO ONE, including myself, would have ever guessed I use emotions over logic. Despite not liking (but still seeing the usefulness of) math, I've always been far above average in it. I'm halfway through high school (finished Sophomore year today) and am in AP Math...
  8. ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Do you like math? Are you good at it? Do you tend to have a different learning style than others?
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I´ve read several times that INTPs make good mathematicians, but I find myself being terrible at it. Maybe because I find it boring. What about you guys?
  10. Education & Career Talk
    Hello, I really want to study ornithology, I love birds, and would like to learn more about them, so I can help endangered populations etc... Anyway, the only problem is... I'm bad a maths, legitimately. I was born at 24 weeks, and (I'm not bullshitting you); people who were born premature...
  11. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Do/did you like math or languages (learning another language like French or Spanish) better or do you have no preference? If so, to what extent does your preference exist? If you want my answer: Je n'aime pas les maths. C'est bête. Je préfère étudier la langue française.
  12. Education & Career Talk
    Sup guys So I've looked into MBTI and other personality tests and tools for a while, and I have identified myself as an INFP, and I'm very proud of it. I've been lurking in this site for some months now looking at other advice from people here to try and get to know myself a bit better, but...
  13. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Basically in the beginning I was very hesitant about wheter or not am I INTJ since I sucked at math so much, so I looked around the internet and I found A LOT of INTJs and INTPs who were quite bad at math aswell. Now both of them are considered to be most logical of all types, while at the...
  14. Myers Briggs Forum
    So what's your occupation , if you are a student then what's your major? Does it go well with your type or you don't give much thought on it.
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello, I'm a new user here and this is my first thread. I wanted to ask the question that I've struggled to answer for my entire life: Why am I significantly worse at math than any other subject? I don't have much to complain about, as I am still in advanced math at my school. However, it is...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    When is Cheryl's birthday? The math problem gone viral - CNN.com ok, I don't understand why people are having so much trouble with this question. It's pretty obvious right? Oh wait, yeah, it's worded pretty horribly. But still the answer shouldn't be too difficult to find. to check your...
  17. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'm curious to know what are the areas of interest of the INTJs. I'm 19 and I'm in college. I study pure mathematics and I intend to go on research career, what about you?
  18. Advice Center
    I was born with Mild Spastic Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy which affects the anterior left side of my brain (my cerebellum), thus weakening the right side of my body, my visual/spatial processing speed, and left me with dyscalculia. In middle and high school, I was never great at math. However, I...
  19. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I looked briefly in the reddit forum about this topic, which is something I hardly ever do, but I found a fantastic book that seems more approachable to an INTP mindset. It centers around teaching "plausible" logic rather than what is usually taught as "demonstrative" logic. It seems to...
  20. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    There is a lot out there about INTPs and mathematics, but not really ISTPs. Would you, in general, say you are good at math? What aspects of math are you good at specifically, and what kinds of math are your favorite/strongest (i.e. trig, calculus, statistics)?
