Agree - plan the stuff you are iffy on very very early fourth year so you can switch if you need to last minute. Or on a light rotation with less call like Psych - go work for a bit in the ED or wherever else you are considering....
Popcorn, I'm an entj too like southern, I could see myself in the ER or some sort of action-oriented specialty if it weren't for anesthesiology. Maybe a critical care path, surgery, or high risk ob. Except EM, there's clinic with most of those, but at least it's focused. I also hated outpatient general medicine, but enjoyed some sub populations like peds and ob.
I think this is where anesthesiology suits me well, but I kind of wish I had explod EM more. I will have my chance this year

There are many personalities in all fields. Don't judge based on a Myers what you might be. I'm an extrovert, and I'm an Anesthesia resident.
I will say this - Anesthesia and Emergency people both seem friendly and easy to deal with for the most part (warning: sweeping generality). However, when people meet me in the hospital, they say things like, " We love Anesthesia interns - they are always really nice" or "Anesthesia people are awesome to work with - they are always really nice!" My specialty is known for having people who like to get along with others. I mean, we kind of have to - we work with a team and with surgeons.
So there is some of that. Another sweeping generalization, but something VERY noticeable during orientation - the Ortho people are VERY INTENSE. I mean - each and every one of them. Whew...it was a bit much.
