Need advise on reprogramming my brain, at least for a few hours

Here is my situation. I am a paramedic. Everyday I see patients that I must attempt to make better. My intuition combined with all 5 of my senses mix together to tell me what is going on and whether or not to be worried. This works extremely well for me, at least until now that I want to move up. This involves an interview where I am given a patient care scenario and must 'work through it'. I find myself asking What is he really asking? What does he want me to figure out?. What is the angle here? Lets try factoring in body language. Crap Im taking to long now I look like an idiot .....[BRAIN: OVERLOADED AND WAY OFF BASE]

As a medic I work just fine under high pressure intense situations but this interview is way out of my comfort level. I have narrowed the problem down to this. When dealing with a patient in real life I take it all in and I guess my subconscious provides the answer, but now I have to talk my through the same thing having to ask for each detail. How do you ask someone what level of fear you see in someones eyes? Its not text book but it definitely helps.

Any other INFJs experienced a similar problem or am I just...[??]

Tried that. Didn't work out.

I think the gap between the theory and the practice, even if the theory accurately represents it, is a... a world apart, shall we say?

I get the feeling that if I try to explain all this it would only hurt my chances. So really that only leaves me with learning to get through the scenario as a new skill altogether. The step by step approach that they are looking for. Will take practice.
awesome i will check these out. Thank you.
