    consistent - I took the Myers-Briggs about 5-10 yrs ago and at least it is consistent. I think its very accurate and explains a lot. Thanks for posting the website. What's good about the Myers-Brigss concept is that it allows you to look at another person and "speed read" their personality traits - to get on their wavelength and understand them better.

    I am INFJ. How refreshing to know that I'm in good company here. There are times that I think that nursing isn't a good match for me, but I can't seem to get away from it. I come back to it time and time again. I'm unhappy and frustrated with it, and miserable without it. Perhaps it is those "magic" moments here and there that make it all worth it.

    Hi Mesomorph,

    I did not go into nursing until my mid 30s, but I find the older I get, the more down to earth I become - INFX. I don't think some of us integrate our shadow or weaker functions until we get a little older. I still have to work very hard at being present and grounded, something the stronger S types may not have much difficulty doing. Because of this, I do have a tendency to obsess and go over and over procedures, i.e., I overcompensate. My strengths do tend to be more towards being in tune with the emotional/psychic/spiritual functioning of others.

    You might try doing a little EFT, If you are very sensitive, as I am, your lack of groundedness could be a response to trauma from an earlier point in your life. Best of luck to you.
