    Default Alpha Quadra Experiences with School

    I would like to see the correlations between school experiences and the four types, ESE, SEI, LII, and ILE but also the different subtypes of each type. It's just for fun because I am not convinced in socionics actually working yet.

    My best guess for my subtype would be Fe and not Si, but I am not really extroverted seeming, so I don't think I have one at all. Not too sure what my subtypes in the other systems are.

    For me my favorite subjects were European History and Math. My least favorite subjects were state History and AP Chemistry, and also Creative Writing. Subjects that I felt neutral on were Biology and English.

    I enjoyed European History because it was fun to see all the connections between events in history, and the world made a little more sense to me after that class. Math is only my favorite because I think the homework is the easiest to do (which isn't saying a lot because I sucked at homework), otherwise it was boring and I didn't find it interesting at all.

    In state History, well let's just say the teacher had this "America is the best country and never did anything wrong" attitude in his teaching. I didn't like Creative Writing because we had to listen to this awful slam poetry which had a lot of people who don't understand societal issues talking about feminism and the such like, and speaking. with. stupid. random. punctuation. and. terrible. intonation. Some of them were actually good, but most of it just felt so unoriginal, or missing the point, or just acted out terribly. Then I am bad with writing when there are rules for what I can and can't do. AP Chemistry was just the worst class I ever had, and it wasn't the teacher at all but the work. I found it completely uninteresting and hard to do. So many rules and facts and things about molecules that I didn't like. I did not even enjoy the labs because of the evil lab reports and just the tedious detail and...

    Biology was okay, and English would have been fine if I didn't keep daydreaming about scenarios in my head where I argue with the school system on their choice of books and the teachers with their opinions. I felt that most of the book choices either didn't match the themes too well or they felt a little redundant or childish. Although maybe it was just that I am not interested in such books.

    The other subjects I can't really say much about so they weren't very interesting or they didn't cause me enough pain.

    I did Scholars Bowl (basically it was trivia) and I enjoyed it very much, because trivia makes you feel a little smarter when you can guess the question correctly and quickly. I tried track and field, but I found out that I hated running when I was forced to do it at an exact time.

    I can't say much about the teachers because I was very quiet and usually I didn't interact with them much one on one.

    Well, I was a procrastinator, which meant that I almost always did my work the day before. Oh and also I was a major perfectionist on some assignments. I almost never studied for anything either.

    I excelled at test taking and reading comprehension, and yeah, that's it.

    Of course even among the same type I think people will answer differently, but I just wanted to see if there was any correlations between experiences and type and what they were.

    Assuming we're talking about high school/pre-college, history, music, and chemistry were my best classes. I wasn't any good at physics and didn't care about biology, but chemistry clicked and seemed really easy.

    I hated english literature. Math was neutral. I was like an A-/B+ student in math.

    When I got into college, I liked statistics (from the perspective of the implications of the theory around it) and sociology also clicked and seemed super-easy.

    In general, I hated school but never had much issue with it. There was just a lot of down-time and boredom.

    My favorite subjects were geometry, math and philosophy. These subjects didn't require any amount of work on my end, they were also fun to me. I still help my younger cousins when they need help in math and geometry, it is like solving sudoku to me.

    I didn't like any subject that requires mainly memorization like biology, history. However, there were sub-subjects that didn't require memorization or that I find interesting, I was fine with them.

    @ouronis I will assume you are Alpha NT? Do you know which one or....?

    Ah I didn't really specify which grades of school, mostly just high school up through University.

    @MidnightWilderness: I just want to write something short: I noticed some of your postings in the last few weeks and I think that you're an IEI, and not an SEI. you have the same type as Ian Curtis in my opinion. that's all I wanted to mention.

    @Alive What makes you think that? Hopefully not because of my profile photo, my music tastes just happen to have Betas in them.. I don't really see myself as using Ni at all.

    In elementary school I didn’t really care about any of my classes. I would just try to do my work as quickly as possible, and then I’d read in my free time while everyone else was still doing their assignments, since we could take books from the school library and keep them in our desks. I didn’t have many friends — an SEI girl in 1st grade, an SEI boy in 2nd, an ILE in 3rd and 4th grade. During recess I’d either play/walk around with whoever was my friend that year, or if they were busy or otherwise occupied I’d usually just walk around under the trees and study the ants and caterpillars (there were always many tent caterpillars on the trees when the weather was warm). Sometimes I remember the teachers for some reason didn’t like when I did that. It was a large playground with a few different “stations” scattered throughout, and if no one was at one I’d occasionally go there and sit or play alone. I didn’t really understand how to act among a group and it made me uncomfortable to be around many people at once. Actually it made me uncomfortable to even talk with most people one on one. With the SEIs I preferred when they would just talk and felt comfortable; I liked to listen and to watch them. The ILE was the only person I remember feeling entirely comfortable talking with, because he was so distracted and laid back I knew he wouldn’t care too much if I said anything weird.

    I was homeschooled from a certain curriculum in high school. I mostly saw it all as just stuff I had to do. I didn’t like writing papers because they took the most time for me to do. The only class I remember enjoying was history; the program was good/interesting.

    the picture had nothing to do with it, but I mentioned it because I thought it might interest you. it's an intuitive observation, can't really explain why.

    I think Te PoLR does make sense for midnight.

    I am not an Alpha. I am probably a Beta or a Gamma.

    My favorite subjects are history, Model UN, and chemistry. I have a really good chemistry teacher. I really like the way that she breaks down chemistry and physics in a straightforward and applicable manner. She does give a lot of work, but I like doing it. I can't complain.

    I like history and Model UN because I am fascinated by governments and politics. I love learning about which factors change governments or cause them to fall. I also find the way that people attain high positions to be interesting. Additionally, I like to learn about how people exercise their power and their impacts on society.

    My least favorite subjects are math and art. I think that math and art require you to be thorough; I tend to jump to conclusions pretty easily. I tend to forget a lot of the concepts in math pretty easily, and I tend to mess up the process. In math, there are only one or a few right answers. This is different from politics. Politics is process-oriented to an extent, but results matter more than precision in politics. In math, it is the opposite.

    I don't like art because I am not very good at it. I often find it to be tedious. It's that simple.

    Fave subjects: Math and Science (pretty generic ILE I know hahah)
    Least fave subjects: History and Geography
    I hated school though lol
    Never liked learning stuff by obligation. The whole routine of going everyday to school was also a huge pain in the ass for me.

    As for my social life it was meh, I had friends and all but it was always the weirdos lol. I was generally liked but kinda in a 'class pet' or 'funny kid' sort of way. Not one of the cool guys lol.
    My best friends were... uhhhh I think I had 2 SEI guy friends (closest friends), an LII/EII guy and my SLI cousin. Sadly I didn't know about socionics back then cause I shoulda done more to keep in contact with em cause they were good friends. Looking back I was a shitty friend and it's one of the very few things that I regret.

    School generally sucked and I wanted to grow up fast but now I kinda wanna go back to those carefree days without adult responsibilities haha
