Myers-Briggs Type - page 8

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've taken this test over the years and I always come out the same. INTJ. So dead-on correct for me. I guess it's really rare for women, something like 2% of the population? Anyone else out there an INTJ? We can be difficult!
    Yes, I'm an INTJ too. I think what throws people is that I have one set of standards for myself, but have learned to be more flexible with others. I do, however, hate small talk. I also get very impatient with people who talk endlessly and never make a point.

    INTP - ER nurse..

    Three INTP's in a relatively small sample, curious since we are something like less than 1% of the population and females even rarer (facts from memery, may be alittle off). I would very much like to speak to another INTP, especially in nursing.

    Nursing is definetely not on the list as a good career for an INTP's...not enough autonomy, too much repitition, etc. Yet, we persist.

    I am an INTP and I have to say that I found traditional nursing very difficult. I now manage Health Programs for an agency that links families of children with special needs to community resources. I am far better suited for this work, which demands that I both fly by the seat of my pants and think quick on my feet, which are two of my strengths. There is never enough time or money, and always too many people who need my help, so I have to be creative. I love to think outside the box. I prefer to manage my own projects from start to finish, which is a good thing, since good help is hard to find here! There are definitely times when the stress level is off the charts, but I could never go back to bedside care. Although nursing isn't listed as an INTP career, ER nursing uses lots of the skills and characteristics you have as an INTP.

    I am an ENFP. It is right on. I juggle 3 different hats, and am committee chair for new orientees. Love my job and the new and different challenges every day.

    I am an INFJ. Very intuitive. I think this will be a good thing for a nurse to have lots of. (I am a nursing student, now)

    ISTJ. I work in telephone triage/nurse advice and have had the opportunity to work with our software. Thus, I've learned to embrace my inner geek. Computer programming is noted as one of my possible career options. It seems as if I'm heading in that direction at the moment in the incarnation of nursing informatics.

    Interestingly, Military leader came up as well. Before becoming a mom, I gave serious thought on several occasions to joining the USAF.
