Visionary

Typealyzer lets you assesses your blog using Myers-Briggs personality types and a text sample from your front page.

Take the Flea, for example.

ENTP - The Visionaries

The charming and trend savvy type. They are especially attuned to the big picture and anticipate trends. They often have sophisticated language skills and come across as witty and social. At the end of the day, however, they are pragmatic decision makers and have a good analytical ability.

They enjoy work that lets them use their cleverness, great communication skills and knack for new exciting ventures. They have to look out not to become quitters, since they easily get bored when the creative exciting start-up phase is over.

Fortunately, I think this blog is still in the exciting start-up phase.

Update: A friendly reminder of the real Myers-Briggs Personality Types made relevant.

For example.

ENTP: The Mad Scientist

The ENTP, like the ENTJ, is charismatic, outgoing, and intelligent. ENTPs are often quickwitted, clever, and genial; they typically display a highly organized, rational cognitive ability which makes them natural scientists and inventors.

ENTPs are creative, complex people who seek to improve their understanding of the natural world, usually by building armored fifty-story-tall robotic monsters with iron jaws and death-ray eyes, or by creating genetically mutated plagues that spread unstoppably across the land, turning all who are contaminated into mindless zombie drones. They are less likely to want to conquer the world than to destroy it utterly, reducing it to nothing but slag and rubble--though this is often merely a side-effect of their pursuit of knowledge.

It seems fairly accurate. It branded my moribund blog as an INTP. When I took the Meyers Briggs test I fell into the INFP category, but only just.

I'm impressed! It pegged me correctly as INTJ (The Scientist) which I'm surprised is apparent in my (long-neglected) blog.

My Meyers-Briggs results are usually INTJ but it has designated my writing as ISTP, which I can live with.
