So how many of you guys are actually lab-rats?

I have always been fascinated by science, and I have worked in a lab, but I'm not a scientist. I was an English major in college.
Well, I'm fascinated by science. I'm not scientist, because there is no jobs for scientists in my country. If I had the chance, I would have worked it.

I'm Software Developer, but if I've lived in other country, I would work in the bioinformatics area.
The first useful poll I've seen in a while. It will be nice to have somewhere to direct people who are convinced we're all housed together in a lab.

In terms of occupation, MBTI isn't about what you do, it's about how you do it. Regardless of the job at hand, an INTJ will tend to be systematic, logical and efficient.
When I finished my thesis in mechanical engineering the university offered me a scholarship for PhD, I refused it, working in a lab seems to me dumb the real thing is out, Go after it and explore it.
I'm studying psychology and neuroscience, but haven't been in a lab yet.

I actually said, "damn you, MBTI," when I switched my major. I refused to take a fourth year of science in high school, intended to go to school for art, went through a couple of non-science majors, and settled on psychology only to become obsessed with the neuroscience classes. Damn you, MBTI.
Depends what you mean by scientist. If it means working with science, then yes (micro-electronics in my case)
If it means working in a lab, doing experiments, then no.

You mean stereotypes aren't always true??

By the way, I like your avatar.

My line of work deals with "Building science", if that is good for you.
In terms of a Lab-rat, I am a Architectural Technologist, and i spend all day in a Computer lab. =0
The stereotype that stereotypes aren't always true is true.

Thanks, I like your walking stick.

Currently pursuing a career in research, as well as clinical psychology. I have also worked in a lab as an intern, but I mainly crunched numbers.

Stupid poll. The second option "No, That's just a silly stereotype." should just be "no". Now that you added an opinion to the "no" answer, I can't answer your poll because the right answer isn't in there.

Do structural engineers count as scientists?

Computer Scientist.

Also, for the purposes of this, I vote we count any and all engineering as science being applied to the real world, which I think is probably even more in the vein of the INTJ, what with the desire to actually *do* things and not *just* speculate on them.
Social scientist. So, not really a lab rat, but well-versed in quantitative methods and research design.

Does it count if they let me into the lab? I publish in lab science but don't actually do that much of it...

like @Green Girl, I majored in English...
I'm not; my ambition is to obtain the title "Lord of Binmen."
well im no real scientists but i remember in high school i had my own lab where i did all of the experiments in my chemistry book i also make soap as a hobby so if you would consider that a lab then yes i do
That sounds exactly like me. While I love Psychology, and plan on perusing it (in a sense, anyways; I'd rather be a Psychiatrist), I've got a special place in my brain for neuroscience, and I find myself applying it more than other people would probably like.

I couldn't not hear that in House's voice. It was incredibly eerie.
