This blog’s personality is…

There are plenty of different sites on the web that offer to analyse your blog, usually with the aim of telling you what untold riches lay within your grasp if you start running ads, however I’ve finally found one that I like. The Typealyzer offers to analyse your blog and let you know what personality type it has.

So what type of personality does Dave from Albury’s Weblog have??

According to Typealyzer this blog is an INTP, and here’s what else they have to say,

INTP – The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are espescially 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.

I’ll settle for that. Funnily enough, when I’ve done the Myers-Briggs assessment in the past I’ve actually scored as an ENTP, so I’m not sure what makes my writing more introverted than my normal demeanour.

The next question, of course, is what type of people are drawn to a blog with an INTP personality?

  1. I ran mine through the wringer, here’s a snippet of what came out:

    “They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through.”

    Scary accurate!

  2. They’re lucky I’ve got no blog. There analytical server would go into meltdown.

    Christmas greetings to you, Dave and all those near and dear to you.

  3. Here is my blog’s ‘personality’:

    The analysis indicates that the author of http://www.alpineopinion.wordpress.com is of the type:

    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 abilitity.

    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.

    Visionary, charming, trendy, sophisticated, witty & social. Oh, I’ll take that over your INTP any day!

  4. Geez … we are a well rounded group of bloggers. I came out as “ENTJ – The Executives“.
    The direct and assertive type. They are especially attuned to the big picture and how to get things done. They are talented strategic planners, but might come off as insensitive to others needs and appear arrogant. They like to be where the action is and like making bold and sweeping changes in complex situations.

    The Executives are happy when their work let them learn and improve themselves and how things work around them. Not being very shy about expressing their ideas and often very outgoing they often make excellent public speakers.

    The amazing thing about this process is that it calculated that in about 10 seconds and I agree with the analysis of Dave and Ray as well as my own.

    How come a computer can work that out in such a short time whilst I am still misunderstood by people who have known me for years.

    Now, if only we could find a way to check out council candidates before an election …

  5. The Berra Circular comes up as ‘ESFP – The Performers’, a reading almost the exact opposite to what the real life me (consistently) scores on Myers-Briggs. I wonder what the Typealyser uses to reach its conclusions.
    Maybe blogs are the ‘us’ that we aren’t in ‘real life’? Go figure.
    Seasons Greetings to you and yours, DfA.

  6. wow interesting post this- didn’t know you could get your blog analysed for personality! I ran mine through the typealyzer and came out as ‘ISFP – the artist’. Quite true although I’ve always tested as INFP in the past.
