I'm a INFP myself. I think it's wise to see how your personality relates to different careers. Problem is that it would be hard for nurses to tell you whether an INFP personality would fit other health careers better than nursing b/c most of us have only been nurses. Also, you have to factor in other things like are you a detail-oriented person or the opposite, do you like high stress or off the charts stress, etc. The old adage about nursing is true...there are sooooooooooooo many different areas in nursing that most people eventually find their area or move out of nursing and on to something they're more passionate about. I've wondered your same question, but am just coming to realize that life is a very curvy road and we have to find out what we don't like or what doesn't fit us before we fall into a career we enjoy (for the most part). I'm not sure if INFP tend to like the straight, direct path more than other personalities or everyone is that way. Sometimes you have to just take a leap of faith and talk to lots of professionals. I learned more about what other healthcare professionals do AFTER I became a nurse. That was despite shadowing OTs, PTs, Speech Pathologists, X-ray techs, etc. prior to becoming a nurse. Sometimes the journey is just a long one to find out what we like or can tolerate in a career. Starting as a CNA is a great opportunity to find out more about many of the healthcare professions and not waste a lot of money on schooling only to find out you don't like the career as much as you thought (and making good money can only ease the money slightly). Good luck on your quest!!
