    Default Another introduction!

    I've been lurking for a month, and I've had fun reading, so I figured it's the right thing to do to register.

    Who am I? I'm a woman in my late twenties. I trained as an experimental scientist, but I'm looking for new calling. On online tests I always come out as INFJ, but near the I/E border. People make me tired fast, but I have a good time until I'm sick of them. I'm looking forward to being categorized now!

    I don't know much about MBTI. What I do know: MBTI gives me a good place to begin to understand people who think in ways are alien to me. (You can read that as: husband = ISTJ = things really ARE that simple for you? No way.)

    I'm introduced, so now the party starts, right?

    Welcome to MBTIc.

    What sort of science do you experiment with? (If you're allowed to disclose.)

    No puns! *ouches*

    I've been working in physics for the last ten years - but now I finished my degree. No more research!

    And I noticed all the INFJs. I think it's a critical mass thing - it moved me to post...

    Welcome, Influx.

    I've found MBTI has helped me to better understand my husband (ISTJ) -- it's also helped him understand me and my convoluted-non-linear thinking

    This signature left intentionally blank.

    Really.

    Hello, InFlux. Welcome to MBTI Central. It's nice to have a former scientist aboard, you might be able to help us with understanding some research. It also makes me less doubtful of my type due to my interest in Science.

    Anyway, we'll be happy to analyze and categorize you. It's our favorite pastime, actually.

    Actually, you might want to avoid this board if you really want to get away from science, because we talk about research and new theories all time. (albeit we do talk about other things.)

    What kind of insights has MBTI given you?

    Default Science, etc.

    Hi everyone!

    Well, I want to get away from DOING physics, but it's always fun to talk about.

    Athenian: One thing I can tell you is that my area of physics at least is a bastion of INTP boys. That means you'd have a lot to offer. If you really like it, a little bit of Fe and a lot of Ni can get you far. Science isn't really only about sitting in your lab (there is a lot of that) and thinking about problems, but also about jumping to an idea and tracking back and seeing if you're right. Additionally, a lot of these guys don't have great communication skills, and that's where Fe comes in. Without standing up and telling others what it is you're doing - and not losing them - what you've learned doesn't contribute to "greater" science.

    The details are what made me insane - I'm terrible at them and it makes my head hurt to do it right. Also - again, I just don't care about systems without people in them nearly enough to spend my life on it. (Secretly, I want to write books about the people in my head, but don't tell anyone)

    And can't any type be interested in anything? I certainly hope so, because I'm interested in nearly everything. Awesome ideas are awesome ideas.

    MBTI insights? I shall unfold them slowly, and in small pieces, like a good novel. But the overall summary is... there are different ways people's minds work. I knew that was probably true, but it's helping me be more patient with people who are different than me, and not just assume they suck. (never openly, but so often internally! I'm kind of ashamed of that...)
