Myers-Briggs Type - page 4

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

    In nursing school, that was actually one of my assignments- using the Myers Briggs. It came out to be INFJ. I took it again using the links that someone posted here, and i'm still an INFJ! "The Protectors" Funny nursing wasn't mentioned as a profession in this personality type...but MD....hmmm....

    INTJ. curious to know how the other INTJs like nursing, what areas they enjoy working, etc..

    sidenote: last time i took this test, about 7 years ago i was whatever type is associated with the "guardian" personality type. i believe mother theresa was the person they used to characterize the type. but INTJ is definitely who i am today.

    ISFJ- add another "Nurturer" to the mix. I fit the profile to the t...kind of scary. However, I am glad to work with so many others who are not makes for a nice balance and helps me focus on the task at hand when decisions and interventions need to be done stat.

    mccaeve: the author is Kiersey and he has his own website. I used his research when I wrote my thesis and learned that more than 60% of nurses who have taken his version of the test are Guardians. But when you break it down into the four subtypes it became apparent that we are guarding different things: people, materiel, policies----. His research has been ongoing for more than 20 years. I learned that we have similar dispositions as nurses, but our uniqueness is what makes the teamwork so effective. I was trying to prove that certain personalities tended to gravitate to specific areas of nursing, but was not able to do that in my small research.

    ENFP -- Pre nursing student, former sales rep, currently a stay-at-home mom. Can't remember what it all means and don't want to take the time right to study for the TEAS & NET tests (smile)

    Extraverted (E) 86% Introverted (I) 14%
    Intuitive (N) 77% Sensing (S) 23%
    Feeling (F) 80% Thinking (T) 20%
    Perceiving (P) 86% Judging (J) 14%

    Surprised so many introverts in nursing. My numbers also make sense for me and are probably the reason I ended up becoming a clinical nursing instructor. I am supposed to be an "Inspirer".
    Even as a floor nurse I was constantly trying to change the status quo.

    I'm an ISTJ The Duty Fullfillers. Fits me to a "T". I've taken this test and many others like it, they seem to "peg" me quite well.

    I don't put much faith in these things but it says INTJ.

    ESFJ to a "T".... nursing mentioned as well as administrator. I am a DON for an SNF. Choose it so that I can create order and change life for the better of staff and residents. I also hold a degree in Training and Development which has used this test many times. It's always interesting and freaks people out because of it's accuracy. If you take it and fit the profile, yet the results are in a career that is not even close to being nurse related, please pay attention. You'd be surprised how much it means when all is said and done.
