Blog Personalities?

I just ran my blog through Typealyzer a tool that calculates your Myers Briggs Type Indicator based on the content of your blog. So I'm guessing, that in actual fact, this is my blog's personality and not necessarily mine. We do often adapt a different persona in different situations, do we not? I suppose, however, at some level, this is who I am, at least in part.

I suspected that perhaps the "Typealyzer" was basing its analysis on my blog's front page. So as not to take things for granted, I took it upon myself to run a few different pages / years through the analysis. They all came up the same, so I guess I'm pretty consistent in my writing, either that, or this is actually my personality. I haven't yet decided. In any case, Typeaylzer declared me to be: ESFP or extroverted, sensing, feeling, perceiving. Hmm... So here you have it folks...me the performer. Run your own blog through and let me know how it all pans out.

ESFP - The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.
Here are a few other characteristics of the ESFP:
  • Lively and fun
  • Live in the here and now
  • Often find themselves in the role of peace maker
  • Observant about other people
  • Spontaneous and optimistic
  • Love to have fun (who doesn't?)
  • Likely to be practical, but hate structure and routine
  • Have an appreciation for aesthetic beauty

How interesting! It's rather uncanny how it can do that!

Mine came up INTP - The Thinkers.


Carla said...

Chani, I don't know if you agree with the full description, but you are definitely a thinker. You always have such fabulous reflections for your posts.

SORRY about the broken links to those "fabulous hats" on my current post -- I have fixed them!

technikile diffikultees -- blame blue bunny!


I will come back and read this later!

Ha! This is just too entertaining to resist. As I have two blogs (main and garden) I came up with ESTP - The Doers, and ISTP - The Mechanics. Goes to show just how two-faced ^-^ a Gemini can be I suppose.

Carla, I'm INFP, the idealist. I guess that fits.

Carla said...

Jannie, How did you know I was particularly intrigued by the hats. I'll stop by later and have a peek.

Rowena, That's funny. A multifaceted personality I guess.

Carla said...

We're Doomed, I'm half wondering if this is a bit like horoscopes...general enough that everyone will find something that fits with them. Of course I mean the blog analyzer, not the official Myers-Briggs test.

Isle Dance said...

We're an exact match...great fun, that site.

we're doomed said...

It's all snake oil if you ask me.

Pamela said...

I had that picture of you without their help! ha ha.

I might do that just for the fun of it, too.

Well, the engine said me: "Detected language Spanish. The only supported languages are English and Swedish. But stay tuned, we are expanding." So, the tool works, specially besides I agree the conclusions about your own blog.
I'll stay tuned, of course.

Jannie Funster said...

I'm a doer! Whoo-hoo.

Yep, must be all that hanging out at airports, bus stations, parks and such.

But little do they know, I'm lazy at heart. And a dreamer.

Fida said...

Ok, now I know I can fool everyone.

Haha...my blog is "The Artists" and my website is "The Doers"...fun tool, though ;-)

Carla said...

Isle Dance, It's interesting, isn't it?

We're Doomed, yes, it is a little hokey, but all in good fun.

Carla said...

Pamela, Am I that easy to read? lol

Aaoiue, I will stay tuned as well.

Carla said...

Jannie, you certainly are a dreamer, and it's a good thing to be. Where would we be without our dreams?

Fida, I definitely think your an artist. :-)

VE said...

Ha! Can you imagine what it did with mine?

Actually...I did run it through and it came out with ESFP. I've had many Meyers-Briggs and they all come out the same for me...INTJ. I guess I must REALLY be playing out a different role on my blog because they didn't catch even one of my own...

Steffi said...

Very interesting,Carla!I love to read your blog!

Brahm said...

Mine came up ESTP also.... not sure I agree though!


Carla said...

VE, Just goes to show...it's your blog's personality, not yours.

Steffi, Thanks, you're always so kind.

Carla said...

Brahm, You just need to remember that this is your blog's personality...not necessarily yours.
