ENTP Doctors?

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Have any of you ever heard of an ENTP doctor? Any ideas on how well a typical ENTP would do as a family doctor or any other medical field? Would there be a field of medicine that would be more suited for the ENTP personality? I think I've read that the field of psychology is recommended, but not sure.

I don't know, doctors aren't so much required to be innovative, more to use knowledge properly without sense of experimenting. Pharmacy could be a place for innovative thinking, lots of diseases require to find a cure for.

Friend that is one.

He is currently working the ER and finds it funny to take pictures of what is in the waiting room and send them to his friends. He likes the idea that he never knows what is coming through the door, and his job is intellectually stimulating to a point. Of course, he enjoys the money too.

Last picture sent: A picture of a man with a piece of his face missing from a shotgun blast. Does that sound like you?

ER or bio-mechanical research I would think.

As an ENTP Doctor (nephrologist, med school professor), I think most of you are on track. I get bored with routine patient care, so entered a specialty, then teaching, then curricular design for students, then leadership, transitioning about every 6-7 years. Psychiatry is a good field for ENTPs, as it involves both analysis and flexible strategizing with complex emotions. I entered nephrology because it involves complex numeric problem solving, unusual for medicine. Bottom line...anything to avoid routine and boredom.

The personality stats show that the field is dominated with NFs, BUT ENTP was the most likely of the NT variety.

Sounds like a violation of HIPAA law.
