I stumbled on an interesting service called Typealyzer that attempts to fit a person into one of the Myers-Briggs profiles based on the writing in their blog. Based on my blog, it reports me as INTJ - Scientist, or:
- Introverted (vs extroverted)
- iNtuitive (vs sensing)
- Thinking (vs feeling)
- Judging (vs perceiving)
From my Typealyzer result:
"The long-range thinking and individualistic type. They are especially good at looking at almost anything and figuring out a way of improving it - often with a highly creative and imaginative touch. They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be pshysically[sic] hesitant to try new things.
The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity. Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communcating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use conrete examples. Since they are extremly good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone."
This seems accurate with how I would assess myself; I found more detail on being INTJ here, along with details on the other 15 profiles.
I thought it would be interesting to see what types of writing I'm drawn to. So on a larf I ran through a short list of my favorite blogs and found the service to hit the mark rather well: not as many INTJs as I would have thought, a few ENTJs and even one ESTP, but not a single F in the bunch. Not sure what THAT says about me ....
So, what profile are you?
