Wanna get to know your local neighborhood blogger better? The site Typealyzer purports to analyze a blog and determine its author’s type on the Myers-Briggs scale. I’ve never taken a Myers-Briggs test before, so I don’t know how accurate the test is for me. But those who have suggest Typealyzer’s accuracy is “scary.” I’ve always thought of Myers-Briggs as a kind of super-sophisticated, personalized horoscope … in other words, observations about humanity balanced in that narrow space between generality and specificity so that it feels like it’s nailed you personally, but when you look closer it describes half the people you know. Still, Typealyzer is good for several good minutes of work avoidance. Anyway, here’s the verdict on this site:
The meaning-seeking and unconventional type. They are especially attuned to making sure their beliefs and actions are congruent. They often develop a passion for the arts or unusal forms of self-expression.
They enjoy work that are aligned to their deeply feelt values and tend to strongly dislike the more practical and mundande forms of tasks. They can enjoy working alone for long periods of time and are happiest when they can immerse themselves in personally meaningful projects.
There you go. I also plugged in a few other sg bloggers. Here’s David Bruce Murray at Musicscribe:
The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
Really, though, you can’t appreciate this analysis fully without seeing the avatar the site generates to illustrate this particular type. Heheh.
Daniel Mount at southerngospelblog:
The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.
They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.
And Kyle over at southerngospelview:
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generelly prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.
The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.
Putting what I’ve read together with what little I know of these guys, this isn’t too bad for the interweb. Honestly, though, what’s up with all the typos?Email this Post
