“To an INTP, knowledge is like mind candy. Now imagine having a funnel shoved down your throat and being force fed candy. This is what high school feels like to many INTPs. If an INTP is "cooperative” and willing to grind away at the homework, they may become the teacher’s pet because of their love of learning. However, other INTPs earn their teachers’ dislike by questioning them in front of the class and arguing over their conclusions. Unhappily the “teacher’s adversary” scenario is apparently rather common. An INTP youth may argue that an assignment is unnecessary, debate the requirements, or insist on a creative reinterpretation of the parameters. They may also ask technical questions that their teachers cannot answer. If the teacher makes a spelling or math mistake on the board, the INTP will helpfully correct them. Teachers, for some strange reason, may come to see the INTP as antagonistic and may even believe that the INTP is deliberately trying to make them look bad. (They may not even be wrong.) Usually, however, the INTP just wants to establish truth.“
