    Quintessentially INTJ. I have psych experience, but I don't really care what area of nursing I'm in - just so long as I can work nights.

    Great post! Let's keep it going!

    Only one other ENTP? Anyone care to also share the percentage of the population your results are? ENTP's are 3.2% of total population (of what, it doesn't specify).

    ENTP:
    risk taker, easy going, outgoing, social, open, rule breaker, thrill seeker, life of the party, comfortable in unfamiliar situations, appreciates strangeness, disorganized, adventurous, talented at presentation, aggressive, attention seeking, experience junky, insensitive, adaptable, not easily offended, messy, carefree, dangerous, fearless, careless, emotionally stable, spontaneous, improviser, always joking, player, wild and crazy, dominant, acts without thinking, not into organized religion, pro-weed legalization

    Favored careers:
    dictator, computer consultant, international spy, tv producer, philosopher, comedian, music performer, it consultant, fighter pilot, politician, diplomat, entertainer, game designer, bar owner, freelance writer, creative director, strategist, news anchor, professional skateboarder, airline pilot, comic book artist, college professor, private detective, mechanical engineer, lecturer, ambassador, astronomer, research scientist, judge, web developer, scholar, fbi agent, cia agent, electrical engineer, assassin

    Disfavored careers:
    personal assistant, wedding planner, travel agent, secretary, interior decorator, clerical employee, government employee, social worker, pre school teacher, copy editor, child care worker, hospitality worker, occupational therapist, home maker
    ENTP here - very accurate for me. Critical Care all the way... MSN (clinspec, Education) & EdD. I really enjoy clinical nursing because it provides me the optimum 'control enthusiast' venue.

    There's a lot of 'noise' about MBTI development . . overwhelmingly based on men, because women really didn't come into Jung's world view of "people". I am more partial to the ENNEAGRAM (much more holistic & very accurate for me). Another great tool is in Buckinham's "Discover your strengths" book...& also take a look at 5 Dynamics tool - great for analyzing work styles for teams.

    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."
