If you don't want to read it all that's fine. Just take this test and post your four letters (the preference % isn't necessary but you can if you want) or just post your type if you already know it:... Read More

    I think the idealists and rationals are "rare", with rationals being the most "rare". Not sure what all the types those two sections make up (too many to list) but they are listed on one of those pages.

    [font=book antiqua]i am an ixfp, which means i am an isfp/infp.

    [font=book antiqua]i love the mbti! i think the work of myers-briggs is fascinating!

    [font=book antiqua]i first took a myers briggs test in 2007, when i went to a career counselor. my result was isfp. my test results showed a very strong preference for introversion, feeling, and perceiving, but only moderate preference for sensing. i have since taken several mbti personality tests on the internet, and usually my result is isfp, but sometimes i get infp. i have found that i am quite close to 50/50 in regards to sensing (s) versus intuition (n).

    [font=book antiqua]i love reading personality profiles and descriptions, and i very much identify with both the isfp profile and the infp profile. so, i believe i am a mixture of both types (ixfp). or perhaps i have my isfp days and then my infp days.

    [font=book antiqua]i find it concerning that on the above personality website, they do not list nursing as a suggested career path for either the isfp or the infp. and i am noticing that on this thread, there seem to be very few other isfp nurses or infp nurses. i have been unhappy in nursing and i have been struggling to find my niche in the nursing field. maybe as an isfp/infp, i made a poor choice in majoring in nursing in college.

    I can't believe it! I consistently score an an INFP every time I take a personality test even though the questions are totally different. I guess that means I truly am.

    What type of nursing is good for an INFP?

    I am the same thing but when I looked at the description we are driven by the desire to help others. I think that is why we are nurses.

    I just wanted to resurrect this thread because it seemed interesting.

    I am an INTJ. It explains me to a "T"...or rather a "J"...LOL. I've taken this twice before in the past about a few years apart and I always get the same thing, so it must be my true type. Nursing doesn't seem to be on it's little list of career matches, though. It makes me wonder "Is that the reason why I feel like I don't quite fit with this? Like it doesn't come 'naturally'?" I thought it would...maybe I'm missing that crucial element that most nurses have. I don't know which one it may be. Now I feel weird. Where are all the INTJs?
