    INFJ/INTJ (more usually INFJ). Hospice. Really loved the science in nursing but never fit into the "tribe". Have a few friends in nursing that I really, really love, but have always clashed with nursing culture in general and think it is a bit whack, until I found hospice work. I love, love it, and love each and all of my co-workers. Go figure! : ) I like listening to people and repackaging what they tell me so that they can see what they are saying, and I can almost always calm almost anyone down. Best job ever.

    Another INFJ (and have tested this way since I was around 10 years old, though I was more extroverted as a kid). I work in psych and what you describe is one of my handiest strengths.

    IS/NTP here, on the cusp but leaning towards N. Self-employed, consultant, teacher, editor. Yep, this would be me, as many of my acquaintances would attest:

    "Rodin's Thinker is introverted. Here these thinkers ponder the apparent chaos of the world in order to extract from it the universal truths and principles that can be counted on. These principles, once extracted, will provide the logical structure on which to build strategies.Introverted Thinking personality types have a finely nuanced ability to analyse situations, find root causes and foresee consequences. They distrust action taken too quickly without the necessary investigation. They are usually levelheaded, objective, impersonal yet intensely involved in problem solving. They are fiercely independent, seeking input and comments from a chosen few. When reporting to others, they need to establish credibility first: their own and that of the person they are reporting to. If the gap in knowledge and expertise is too great and their own proficiency dismissed, belittled or ignored, they will lose interest and motivation.
    They are less interested in running the world as they are in understanding it. They are curious and capable of explaining complex political, economic or technological problems, taking great pleasure in explaining all the factors and intricacies. They are rigorous with their thoughts and analysis, choosing the exact words that convey precisely what is meant. They may spend a lot of time defining words, concepts and systems in order to define a problematic solution.
    They are armchair detectives, scientists and philosophers, spending most of their time in quiet reflection to ponder truth, and solve mysteries. They may tend to neglect social requirements and responsibilities, finding many relationships to be too superficial to be of much interest."

    INFJ.

    I'm always the "odd" one, lol!
    I, too, can calm people and am a keen people watcher.
    I work psych and now you have me rethinking hospice, which I always thought I would do well in.

    INFJ's are supposedly rare, too.
    Aren't we special!

    The last time I took the test, I believe I came out as an INFJ. I read the description and it fitted me to a T.

    INTJ.

    I worked as a registration rep in an ER for 8 years, now applying to nursing school. Ultimately want to end up in an ER or ICU.

    ESFJ here. I am about a year away from nursing school and currenly finishing prereq's. No clue what type of nursing suits an ESFJ, but would welcome any thoughts! Lol.

    INFJ

    Work with surgical and transplant patients and am working on my master's to be a nurse practitioner

    I think I'm one of those introverts that can "masquerade" as an extrovert when necessary (and kind of enjoy it) but fundamentally, I love lots of alone time, can take or leave huge groups of people, and find that I really enjoy my patients/feel much more at ease with them when I've built up some rapport over a day or two. And I firmly believe that patients who have a million super talkative/crazy family members are any INFJ nurse's worst nightmare! LOL

    It says I am ISFJ which is the conservator type. I looked it up and it says that conservators make good nurses as well as secretaries, librians, and church workers. We like to listen to authority, follow rules, and serve others. We do not like alot of change or meeting new people. I think the test is about 90% accurate in descibing me.

    Isn't it interesting how many of us are introverts? I am an INFP and have tested that way since I was in my teens (I am in the 39 and holding crowd). If you met me, you would think I was the most outgoing, direct person you'd ever met, but that is just the "work me." I am in peri-anesthesia/PACU.
