Math and Te
I am realzing after long years that success in math does require a strong Te, and a huge usage of Te. I don't know if it is the educational system or if research in math is actually really like this, but it appears that Te is even more required than Ti. Or maybe simply my Ti is stronger then what they are requiring.

It is becoming very frustrating, I can't spend as much time as I would like to on using Ti, but always I am forced to go to the Te territory and it's turning my life to hell.

I am sick of this, and it is getting really boring after the years.

I think math can be Te or Ti.

Math uses both. Writing papers is better for Te.

If what you think is research then I think it depends.

If you want to write a lot of papers in a way to get yourself included in a research niche, usually consisting of few researchers, then you do need quite a bit of Te.

But if you want to come up with something original, then you do need a good deal of Ni combined with the Te, or Ti combined with Te.

I don't know though, since I am starting research next January, and that will be after I will be done with all my qualifying exams.

At the beginning I will have to learn a lot of stuff before I can work on my problem.

Can I ask what kind of math do you do?

I graduated college with a minor in mathematics.

Even if you had an undergraduate major, that would be nothing.

The difference between knowing that 2+2 = 4 and getting an undergraduate minor degree in math, is like the difference between the latter and achieving a PHD in pure math.

This is not exaggerated.
