I think #3 is the best way to tell math people from non math people. If you think of percentages and decimals as fractions, and can use fractions well, then you are a math person. If you use decimals, then you are not a math person. I have found this over and over.

I don't know if there is anything pedagogically profound there - if we tie kids arms to desks and force them to think in terms of fractions, will they have better mathematical reasoning skills? Probably not. But my brother, who is as intelligent as me by any measure you wanted to use, is not a math person. And he thinks of the world in decimals. Poor guy.

Back to my finals now ...
