    INFP/J. I work in emergency nursing, primarily peds but am adding adult experience too now.
    I'm also INFP in emerg! I love it. But I need some alone time after work, and sometimes I'll take breaks by myself too.

    INFJ . I work in MICU. I took this test way back in high school, and then read the whole book, and made my family and friends take it, trying to guess what they were. I was usually pretty accurate.

    Interesting, though. I enjoy being an ICU nurse, suits me well, and I think I would enjoy heme/onc in the future.

    INFP, I think MB is fairly accurate. Got tested in college to help select roommates... That didn't work. I just started as a float nurse. I'm a good listener, and I have learned over the years to project confidence, but I'm not a "chatter." My spouse who will be a dr is an ISFJ.

    I have ranged from INFP to INTP. It's been INTP in more recent years.

    I am a floor nurse at an acute rehabilitation hospital, and prior to that, worked as a floor nurse for several years in LTC. I am a good listener, but not much of a talker. I also do not enjoy lots of interaction, so I have a strong preference for the night shift.

    I just took the test and I'm an ESTP which is probably good because I'm studying to become an emergency nurse practitioner and do disaster relief work!

    I've always understood the I/E part to describe more of a core relationship with people, rather than any and all interactions with people. How do I need to recharge? By socializing with others, or alone with a good book? Does spending time in large groups drain me after a while or is it energizing?

    I love people and am social, chat and get to know my coworkers, love throwing parties, but I need alone time with my thoughts to relax. Being alone comes naturally, reaching out to others requires more effort.

    Now, contrasted that to my little sister, who gets super bored when she's by herself. Even as a kid she didn't like a ton of alone time.

    I'm personality type ESTJ, and it is dead on, it described me exactly how I am. I am hoping to become a DNP. Currently, I work as a Registered Nurse-BSN, on a cardiac-step-down unit. This was fun, I love taking these type of tests.

    I'm INFP and have tested that way multiple times since I was a teenager (am now 38). The only difference is I am way less Introverted on the scale now vs back then. I'm a RN at a Cardiac ICU & Stepdown unit (14 beds ICU/14 beds SDU). I love it, but I do hope to get my NP someday.

    I'm INTP (have tested this way since age 18) and looking into psychiatric nursing, with the potential for being a psychiatric NP in the longterm future.
