I guess, what I'm trying to say is that, given I avoid math and generally suck at it, would that mean there's a flaw with me, or with the weight they give it at personality.info?

Instead of doing very well at math, I am rather adept in language

That's like eating a hotdog without the meat.I love to read math books, but I just skip over the equations.

I've never heard of that but I googled it and found a check list and I have every single trait on the list.I have dyscalculia. If there is a maths gene, I was probably born without it.

Yeah totally relate on the lacking math gene. :sad:

Then it would be a "hot-bun". Actually, I assume the equations are correct, skim over them, and focus on the author's conclusions. Really, it's the only way I can approach set theory, general relativity, quantum mechanics, etc. I just don't have the mathematical "chops" to appreciate the elegance of a finely crafted equation. My loss, I know.

A side comment, I find mathematics fascinating, especially my families experiences and struggles with its understanding, how it was core at the creation of my perennial philosophy and life, and core to my ever increasing success. Societies' view on numbers does have an impact on the philosophical outlooks, as such, math is essential in a lot of things. Some say if there are any intelligence types its mathematical and non mathematical, but I digress. The first paragraph contains most important message.

I'm not saying it isn't beautiful. It IS the only language known universally throughout the world besides English. That is beautiful in and of itself.I used to think like you, caring mostly about the outcome. But math can be very elegant, very pretty to look at...
