Thanks to Law Librarian Blog, I sauntered over to Typealyzer, a name ominously similar to Breathalyzer, to analyze the personality type of my blog. The Swedish site apparently applies the Meyers – Briggs Personality typology to blog entries in order to suss out the writer’s personality type.
I entered my blog URL into the box and hesitated briefly, fingers poised over enter button, wondering whether I would pass the test.
Apparently, I am INTJ – a scientist. Here is what the site had to say about this type:
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 [sic] their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use conrete [sic] examples. Since they are extremly [sic] good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.
My mis-spent youth competing on the high school Chemistry team has finally come home. But that physically hesitant thing? Clearly they haven’t seen the Penalty Magnet play soccer.
