Usually I can rather quickly discern the people I meet. I can tell very much how theyre going to behave. My initial impression is almost always confirmed. I took the Myers-Briggs typology test three times, years apart, and I was always typed as INFJ (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging). The characteristics of this rarest personality type (1% of the population) have profoundly embellished my life: deep spirituality, sensitivity, intuition, a rich inner world, a solitude for measuring my inner world and the outer world, an intensity for closure and completion, empathy, altruism and compassion, bibliophilia, an oceanic associative memory, nurture, a futuristic world view, and independence. These essential traits have made the practice of family medicine not just a pleasure but a joy.
