Myers-Brigg personality test....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

Hi Everyone..I thought it would be fun if we took the Myers-Brigg personality test and shared with everyone what our specialty is or what we hope to do (if not yet a nurse or want to change jobs). If you're confused maybe this can help. For example...as an INFP (introverted, intuitive,feeling, peceiving) I would be more suited to work in mental health, public health or oncology. I would not work out so well in the ER, OR or medical surgical. I knew all this but the description just makes me more confident that my intuition about myself was probably right on. HERE'S ANOTHER INTERESTING LINK TO CHECK OUT INFO ABOUT YOUR TYPE!!!! :)

I think it helps to get some insight to your natural temparament and to keep it in mind in choosing your work setting. I know it's not the end all and be all but it's a tool that can be used and it could be helpful. I hope others find this at least a little hepful.

I posted this before but it was moved to the breakroom so maybe this time it wll get a better response. I love this forum..you guys are great!

I'm still a student, I'm not sure what I want to do. Maybe NICU, ED, Critical Care, or labor & delivery.

ENFJ...gee it says I am a "world-thinker" and "teacher"...one of the reasons I went into nursing is because I like teaching too. My "moderately extroverted" personality is PERFECT for L&D!!!

the gaurdian protector

the portrait of the protector the primary desire of the protector guardian is to be of service to others, but here "service" means not so much furnishing others with the necessities of life (the provider's concern), as guarding others against life's pitfalls and perils, that is, seeing to their safety and security. there is a large proportion of protectors in the population, perhaps as much as ten percent. and a good thing, because they are steadfast in their protecting, and seem fulfilled in the degree they can insure the safekeeping of those in their family, their circle of frieds, or their place of business. with their extraordinary commitment to security, and with their unusual talent for executing routines, protectors do well in many careers that have to do with conservation: curators, private secretaries, librarians, middle-managers, police officers, and especially general medical practitioners. to be sure, the hospital is a natural haven for them; it is home to the family doctor, preserver of life and limb, and to the registered nurse, or licensed practical nurse, truly the angels of mercy. the insurance industry is also a good fit for protectors. to save, to put something aside against an unpredictable future, to prepare for emergencies--these are important actions to protectors, who as insurance agents want to see their clients in good hands, sheltered and protectedn

I am supposed to be a Protector Guardian too. Some of it sounds likes me but not everything. I am a postpartum nurse.
