I've been reading about ILEs and Ne/Ti and one thing I seem to notice is that a lot of them are very mathematically inclined, and that Ti is the most mathematical function and whatnot. I believe I'm ILE, but all my life I have known one thing, and it's that I hate math and have always struggled with it. I have never been good at it, especially starting in 5/6th grade when they started implementing Common Core standards here in the states. It has always been my biggest point of frustration in school and I have just never understood it. When I am able to understand the problems then it's fun I guess, but when it gets too complicated or long or strenuous, then I can't even bear it, it's just constant frustration, like in my head I'm like, "Can I just skip this problem or burn this homework?!?! I've been on this problem for an entire hour and I am LITERALLY pulling my hair out of frustration and I just want to go do something fun now!!!!"
Is this maybe like an Ne subtype thing vs. standard ILE or Ti subtype ILE? I heard that they have way more Ne and Fe, and they kind of just disregard Ti to an extent and kind of just put it off to the side sometimes. I mean also though, my favorite classes in school were recess, lunch, PE, and that's about it haha, kind of just embodies enneagram 7 more than anything to be honest. I feel like my enneagram would make me dislike math more than the usual ILE maybe, since math is not really the most e7 thing in the world maybe?? (more like e5 thing)
I feel like the ILE-Ti subtypes would be far better at math than an ILE-Ne for instance. I know an ILE-Ti who is sort of like me, we have a lot of the same interests and we sort of act exactly the same, but he is way more scientifically inclined than me, obsessed with physics and incredibly complex logical theorems, and he's always surprisingly more talkative and extroverted then I am, but terrible at social cues compared to me; people have told me I am a 'charming' and 'charismatic' dude, and the words reserved for him have been 'awkward' and 'socially unskilled' even though he is very talkative. He's incredibly logical and smart but he's actually not that serious of a person sometimes, he can be really goofy and loud at times, sometimes even way more than me. We were both interested in game development, but he actually had the focus and logical problem-solving skills to dedicate himself to doing it for more than 10 minutes, unlike me who would play around with it and experiment with everything, having a ton of ideas and optimism about how the game was going to be in my head while I was setting up the program, and then basically give up when any really complicated stuff like coding or even basic development tools got in the way lol. I've only been able to make games through basic drag-and-drop stuff, I have never been good at coding lol
Anyways, any ILEs here that are bad at math or super logical stuff like math/physics/science/etc? Not necessarily 'dislike', but specifically are not skilled at it or have consistently performed badly in classes like so? Being bad at those classes might indicate lack of Ti, but I know plenty of xLIs who are insanely skilled at math and programming, far beyond any of my abilities, so I'm curious to see what other ILEs might have to say about it
