This is just a non-scientific query as to what personality types people wanting to be doctors have. I'm usually a skeptic when it comes to tests for these, but I believe this one has some merit.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, try a site like this to find out your type.

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

And here's a description of the four main types.

I took a Theories of Personality class in undergrad. We took the Myers-Briggs and I was ISTJ--Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging. It fit me perfectly! :eek:

I just took the jung test you gave the link for: I am ESFJ - extroverted, sensing, feeling, judging.
But i didnt see anything for the types like artisan, etc.
I would say the ESFJ is pretty accurate. :)

Hi Bounty,

The SJ in your ESFJ description indicate that it is a guardian type temperament. If you look at the two letters before the name in the survey categories, you can figure out what's what.

NF=INFJ, INFP, ENFP,ENFJ=Idealist
NT=INTJ,INTP, ENTJ, ENTP=Rational
SJ=ISTJ,ISFJ,ESTJ,ESFJ=Guardian
SP=ISFP,ISTP,ESTP,ESFP=Artisan

According to much deliberation, I'm supposed to be an ENFP.

I'll take this quiz and see if its any different...

It changed me to INFP. Which is pretty much the same, IMO. A healer and an idealist. yay! :)

It said I'm strongly intuitive and strongly perceptive (which is gonna jump up and bite me in the rear, because the P's are generally procrastinators).

heh, mine makes me a dreamin', underachievin', procrastinatin', over-emotional, shy twerp.


And that's about right. Except, to be fair, I'm not really all that shy. I think the introversion comes from my tendency to hide the emotions that I have. So I *am* overly emotional, I just don't act like it.

oh well. :p

OK, so tonight I'm ISTJ. Last time I took this I was an XXXX (split evenly on every trait -- a little scary). the time before I was an ENTP and the time before that an INTP.

I think it all depends on my mood at the time I take it.

ISTJ here, also. It definately fits me to a T. We had to do this test as a team bonding thing back in college...my coach was a ENFP, explains why we never got along :)

N stands for intuitive, S for sensory.

Gosh, everyone is a J here. That makes sense though.

So I am a "counselor."

The problem with these tests is that they are self reported. People have a notion in their minds how they want to act and think and what they actually do. These tests should be prefaced with "answer these questions on what you really do, not what you want to do."

Fun stuff anyway.

I took the test on two separate occasions and got different results. Does that mean I have a split personality??? :eek:

I was an INTP as a freshman psychology major, but probably mutated/evolved into an INFP by juniour year. Now, as a pre-med, I don't know. I wouldn't mind taking it again to see what might have changed.

INTJ (surprise, surprise) Funny how there are already 3 of us out of 21 replies, yet we only make up 1% of the population.

Hey--

I am probably an INFP. According to a list matching MBTI types and specialty, I should go into cardiovascular diseases or psychiatry.

Espion--that makes at least two "procrastinators and underachievers" in our class. Yay!

I took this test over two years ago and got the same personality type as I did today, INTP. Same as Socrates, Isaac Newton and Einstein. Not bad company.:clap:

I too am an ENTJ. For some reason, I find this to be just a smidge off.

I said smidge, that rox. :D

I'm an ENTJ. The "fieldmarshall" type. Apparently there are only 2% of us. The description fits my personality well IRL.

Make that three INFP's :) Though I have taken this a few times before and also come up as an INTP. The procrastinating, spontaneous thing is SO true for me either way.
