    I hope to do NMR, or more correctly as applied in medical imaging context, MRI.

    My perception of what science "is", and how "nerdy" people view themselves varies greatly upon where I am. The science is much simpler in what I do now, and I cant help but laugh when our ESFJ instrcutor comments on how much of a [science subject] nerd she is. As someone told me once, when it comes to nerdiness there are lots of different levels. Some people use big words once in a while, other people should be characters on the tv show big bang theory, and all the levels in between.

    I wonder if a lot of NF's are more in love with the idea or notion of science than they are with actually *doing* science??? Or maybe I just spent too much time in non-NFy science areas and dont realize that a lot of NF's like other kinds of science??? Anyways

    Wait, NF's can do science?! I thought we weren't logical enough for this kind of work!

    One of my INFJ friends is very interested in computers, and computer science (if that counts in this thread) -- and he's told me that the reason why he likes it, is the same reason why he's interested in linguistics. He likes that a computer is something that you can learn to communicate with, that can talk to you in a very straightforward way as long as you know its language.

    In other words...

    No, we're just *interested*. Kind of like dogs who like to watch Law & Order on TV.

    To paraphrase the great Lyle Lanley: "You know an NF with science is a little like the mule with a spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it!"

    Man, yeah. Linguistics kicks ass. I'm also a fan of semiotics in general, for similar reasons.

    Computers can be pretty neat because they allow us to create models of real-world phenomena and explore them. They're a bit too impersonal and I don't have much patience with them nowadays--I can't stare at code for very long--but I get a kick out of giving others a vision and working with them to implement it.


    edit: I posted pretty much this same damn thing two years ago, too

    NF is the very last thing I would test as and I like cosmology, and so do a lot of NFs because of the spiritual side to cosmology, whereas I am into the physical mastery side of it.

    I write software for a living. Not sure if it was the "best" choice for me, but it pays the bills.

    I <3 science fiction (good stuff like Star Trek before DS9), and I find the elegant mathematics used in cryptology amazing. I'm amazed by many of the sciences, including the "soft" sciences like psychology, anthropology and archeology. I love stargazing although I know almost nothing about astronomy, and things like chemistry and biology are fascinating also.

    I love science and math.

    I'm not into life sciences. I'm more a physics/chemistry chick. I took Chem 2 for fun in college and only physics 1 in college cause I went the mech e way because as an 18 year old I had no idea what I wanted to do. I thought engineering was math and science.

    I liked control systems design, thermo and compressible fluid flow best in college. I don't remember it now.
