So I take it you're not a people person.

I think you can get by in nursing without being a people person.

Now there is a difference between just being socially inept (like me) and downright hating people. I can't see ever being happy as a nurse when you hate people.

I probably have one of the most solitary jobs in nursing (PDN nights...love it!), and I still have to interact with the family and the home office on a regular basis.

Someone is trolling us. Maybe it's a slow night over at "Student Doctor."

Lol, believe what you want, but at least I know the truth. I see no specific reason to lie when I can be anonymous and just vent. And yes I would like to see as little as possible of family members that I can because I wouldn't know how to speak to them. And I see nothing wrong with that.

You see nothing wrong with not being able to do half of what the job entails. Hmmm. Okie dokie.

Oh I absolutely agree. I find myself very socially awkward, but I don't hate people. I deal with them every day I work. I don't see how I could do a job that involves nothing but people...but hate them at the same time. I would be miserable.

OK, I'll play. If you're not a nurse, then where are you working night shift caring for unconscious patients?

Okay, guys I hate people but I don't show people that I hate them. Which has actually been working out great with me. I am surrounded by people by working at Panera but I would never tell them to stop looking at me.

Maybe you should get a job working in a morgue. You don't have to work with the living, and I'd say it is probably a nice quiet job you can be by yourself

I am truly baffled.

I just don't understand how you can take care of people if you hate them. Regardless of whether you show it or not.

Ashton Kutcher, is that you? We have to be getting punked.

Perfect! People are already dead, so you don't have to pretend to like them.

Agreed. I know a few nurses who are not people persons (people people?) who are absolutely fantastic with patients and families alike.

I'm not generally sociable...I've also been told I'm not very approachable when I'm out like...walking the mall or in the grocery store. But when I'm in those places, I'm on a mission (I dislike crowds and shopping). But I'm not gonna not talk to someone in the grocery line.

I love observing people. I'm more of a people watcher. But I have no problems interacting, either.

I don't know how I'd feel about my job if I absolutely loathed people in general, though. My little side conversations with patients and families, a lot of times, bring up some obscure yet important piece of medical history or symptom that they didn't think important enough to mention. So I know I'd be missing out on some good info.

I will say, though, that this profession definitely got me over my quiet/shy-in-new-situations-ness.

Well.. I originally wanted to be a doctor because I'm very fascinated with inner organs. But I chose nursing because it seems like the quickest route for me. And I'm not punking anyone, I actually start nursing school August 24th. So I am excited.

And I think you guys are taking it too personally. Yeah, I hate people but it's not like I enraged or want to kill people every time I see someone. I'm not a pyscho.

Maybe you don't truly hate people, but, instead, hate interactions because they feel uncomfy?

I find it hard to reconcile hatred with wanting to help...
