Are certain "personality types" drawn to nursing?

  1. A "just for fun" activity -- personality test.

    Myers Briggs, Enneagram, DISC etc. etc. are often used by organizations to find out which personality types make up their employee base.

    Using MBTI, I'm wondering if a "certain type" is more prevalent in nursing than others.

    This is as close to the official paid test that is found for free online (according to an MBTI practitioner that I know).

    So, if you have around 5-10 minutes, could you take the test and post your results?

    For example,

    I'm INFJ - A

    I'm going to create a poll, but I'm not sure if it will allow me to have 16 choices since this is my first poll creation.

    I think it's a fun activity to get to know the different types of people that are drawn to the nursing profession.

    Here is the test:

    Didn't find my 'type' in the list! Is there possibly a typo in the list? I rec'd a great, lengthy explanation/text, so I know it exists and I did not make the type up!

    (HI-JK, L'MNO, PQRS,. . . any of those ring a bell?)

    Oh, tried to add mine to the list, but I guess it's done from behind the scenes, here:

    I am ENFP-A


    Only diff from the first time I took it, 40+ years ago is that I am a bit more extroverted than I used to be, so it is 51%/49% instead of 49%/51%.
