Myers-Briggs Type - page 3

I know this is an often-used test. I've taken it three times since h.s. I am mostly an ENFP, sometimes an ISFP. Anyone else know their type? I wonder what other types people on the forum are, and if... Read More

    I am INFJ. Spooky because it fits pretty well.

    ENFP for me. It seems very true. And it sounds good for someone working to be a mental health nurse.

    ISFJ here. I took the full test about 10 years ago when I was in an abnormal psych class and I think I was ISTJ at the time. According to this website, I'm in the right profession - I'm a nurturer.

    Ok, I'd like to know if my fellow INTJ's share my troubles.

    I really don't want to know too much about others feelings. I do and I don't. I want to know facts. Facts are superior to feelings. And logic rules. I only care about evidence, reason, and logic.

    I'm not the unfeeling oof that I sound like either. I just have to remind myself to pay attention to, and validate other's feelings when I want to get to the facts of a matter and a logical solution.
    I am on the border on INTJ and INFJ; just depends on how the questions are worded. I am very much an internal processer. I think before I speak...sometimes people get irritated and say, "Did you hear what I asked you?" I'm thinking, "Yeah, I heard you, and if you had half a brain you'd realize I was giving what you said careful consideration instead of knee-jerk answer." I like to think about things in the theoretical, depending on the situation. I do have maybe a little more empathy than a pure INTJ, that's what gets me on the fence. And I am very much a "gut feeling" person, even though I value data. I trust that niggling 6th sense that something isn't right. Every time I've ignored my gut I've regretted it when it comes to many aspects of life, including patient care.

    INFP here, although it was ENFP the first time I took it as a teenager.

    I took the test before Nursing School, in 2003. I am an INFP. My N and P are off the charts!!! Funny you bring this up, because I was just lately wondering how it may apply to my work. The M-B explanation of my personality type made so much sense for me. Being new to nursing, I have begun to think I should re-read Please Understand Me, (The name of the author is escaping me; the book teaches you what to look for in your communication style and preference, and how to listen to types that are different from you). I will watch this thread closely, thanks for bring it up!!!
    I'm an INFP and the NFP parts are really off the charts too. I have become more introverted since the last time I took the test as I used to be an E rather than an I.

    Multicollinarity - I think I understand. When analyzing a situation I don't feel something is a certain way... I think, based on the facts at hand. My brain seems to automatically filter the touchy feely stuff. We're not necessarily aloof but when faced with analysis we process a data stream more readily than emotion.

    JMHO--that's what makes us good ICU/ER/critical care type RNs. We act on the data first, deal with the emotion later. Saved a lot of lives that way.

    hmm INTP, lol, NURSIN was not mentioned at all....

    I'm an ENTJ- 80% or more on each of the spectrums, too. I've tested that way ever since high school (I'm 34). It fits quite well- I've never been comfortable with the touchy-feely stuff.

    In fact, I almost never start a sentence with 'I feel that....'. I'm more of an 'I think that...' kinda person.
