Meyers Brigg, Have you done it?

  1. I know I have said this before, but I am currently in a new grad residency program in the emergency department. Recently we took a personality color test which I found to be super cool.

    The test was made by Carl Chung, I believe his name is, and he determined that each person had a certain temperament that they were born with and it was associated with a color. I got the color orange and many of the other nurse residents who were going to the ER also got orange.

    We each did this color test so that we could determine what personality we each had. Prior to doing this I had done the Meyers Briggs personality test and got an ESTP.

    Have any of you guys done the Meyers Briggs? If so, what did you get? Most of my friends got an I instead of an E and we are all nurses.

    Do you guys feel like your personality determines what area you will be in?? As stated I got an E and I am in the ER. So is there any correlation?? I know I love the pace and acuity of the ER, so I just wanted to see if there were any correlation between your Meyers Briggs and the unit you work in.

    I currently work as a RN in sub-acute mental health/psych. I took the Myers-Briggs back in an intro to psych class. I think I got INFJ.

    I know I took a color personality test in high school and seem to remember getting a split result, though I don't remember which colors or if it is the same test you took.

    I think personality tests are fun and can offer a space for some reflection on attributes/strengths/weaknesses but I also wouldn't shape my identity around the results.

    I've taken it several times and my results seem to vary a bit.
    I seem to either get INFP or INFJ. I ALWAYS seem to get the
    I and the N.

    I usually get INTJ, sometimes INTP. Half way through nursing school right now, no clue where I want to work yet other than the hospital. I didn't dislike medsurg so unless I really enjoy one of my future rotations I'll probably just start in medsurg.

    I was scored an INTJ. PICU and NICU are 15 years of my experience specialty, but I'm doing psych at the moment

    I think mine was called the entrepreneur, which definitely described me to the T.

    I have taken this several times, and I am always an ENFJ "The Mentor." Years ago, the staff of the PICU, where I was working at the time, took it, including all RN's and RRT's. It was one of the most interesting work experiences - seeing how co-workers interpret and give information. I think all married couples should take it, and I think all work groups should take it. We spend so much time and energy on these relationships, this will only enhance our communication.

    As an ENFJ I enjoyed PICU/NICU for fifteen years; then, I had a career change. I became a school nurse in 2001, and have never regretted the change. I'm really going to love it next week when I'm on spring break.
