Inxx?

So the first impression people usually get of me is that i am very smart.. I am kind of aloof, in my head, quiet, i am pretty sure i am an introvert and intuitive.

When I get to know people more I am capable of pretty deep emotions but have difficulty with expressing it and sometimes getting others to express theirs. Feels awkward at times. I think about relationships a lot, but kind of on a theory level. I want to figure out a person and get in their mind before I decide weather or not I love them.

I am in nursing school around a bunch of sensors. I want to do more longer term care (like ICU) to have a more comfortable established relationship with the patient and continuity of care. I don't like having 4 or 5 new patients each day and expected to know everything about them so quickly. I find those details draining. I also enjoy the rush of ER though and like a fast pace that keeps me on my toes. I'd rather get into management where my big picture thinking can be used more effectively. Certain people energize me, but even those after a while drain me and I need to be alone. I do find it helpful to have people around me to be accountable. If I didn't have a roommate my apartment and room would probably look like crud. The sensing side I do have is probably extroverted because Si is like torture to me. It is painful for me to look back at the past too closely, I can be sentimental but not like an INFP. I also like motorcycles and driving really fast. I am better in writing than anything.

I am very aloof at times, the kind of person that hears things 10 times and then finally *gets* the true meaning and wonders who else really understands on that level. I look for my cell phone while I am talking on it, I run into things constantly.

People that come to me for advice have told me I am the only person that understands and that I am a friend that treats them better than family does. But on the other hand when people show emotion around me though sometimes I can freeze and not know what to do and feel like I am letting them down. Friends have also told me I treat them coldly and impersonally and treat them like a patient. I am in my head most of the time, trying to figure out and analyze things. I love math and learning other languages. When people don't know me, they say I "puzzle" them, or that I came off intimidating and extremely intelligent. People that know me well say I'm one of the smartest people they have ever met.

I think it comes down to my comfort level... only less than a handful of people am I extremely close to. My roommate who I have lived with for 4 years thinks I'm more of a thinker. But maybe it's because I have heard the same crap and have lost some sympathy. When it's strangers, I may say I'm sorry and that their situation sucks if they talk to me about it, but I won't ask them a lot about it unless it's someone I really care about or a patient. When I was getting to know her, I was sympathetic to my roommate because I wanted to get along with her and have a good living environment. But over the years I have probably hardened a little with her.

Anyways, any feedback you have on what type you think I am would help. Thanks.

Their affinity for detail, their seeming more "present" in the moment rather than spacey. Just a gut feeling as well I suppose after observing mannerisms.

So this probably indicates that you have at least something of a preference for Intuition (possibly Ni). The reason I asked is that Intuitives have a tendency to state things as fact that are actually just notions or gut-feelings.

From reading just that short blurb I really don't think you are a Feeling type, I'd probably place you as an INTJ maybe. You definitely make a number of references to your difficulties around sensation (and sensation types), but I really don't get much of an Extraverted Feeling vibe from you to be an INFJ. And definitely not the Thinking issues or strong enough Si to be an INFP or ISFP. So I think INTJ would be my preliminary guess.

Thanks for your opinion! Yeah I am pretty sure Ni is my lead function. The second one is a bit harder to figure out because it's not as strong which ever it is. I know I can seem cold and straight-forward but I know INFJ's seem that way too when they have Ni turned out because both types just "know" things and know they're right. When i'm intuiting, i'm not judging at all, not using F or T. I am still a young'n and need to work on strengthening whichever one is more natural. My Ni told me there was a reason you were asking me that and that my answer of having a gut feeling would make it come out even more. I can tell it's on pretty strong right now bcause I am unable to even make a judgment about what you just said lol.

I appreciate the time you took to read this.
