No way would I go bungee jumping

Peter, a loyal MR reader, ran text from this blog through some kind of on-line Myers-Briggs contraption and came up with the following (under the fold)...

INTJ – The Scientists

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 physically 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 communicating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use concrete examples. Since they are extremely good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.

This show what parts of the brain that were dominant during writing.

The analyzer is here.

Tyler, now I know why I enjoy your blog. I am an INTJ myself.

I ran 3 different blogs through and got 2 different results, which somewhat accurately reflected the traits of the (different) intended audiences.

I’m afraid I can’t find the “typealyzer” accurate. It rates my blog ESTP(!) when in fact, alas, I’m famously a textbook INFJ. I often wonder why I have started reading MR recently, but if it is true that Tyler’s an INTJ and many here are ENTPs, well, that would offer an interesting explanation. . .

Cool, I self identify as INTP and the analyzer matches that.

Is anyone here familiar with the Forer effect?

Hee, I’m an ENTJ, which explains both why I like you and why I’ve done most of the yapping the couple of times we met. 🙂

I got this for Daily Kos:

ISTJ – The Duty Fulfillers

The responsible and hardworking type. They are especially attuned to the details of life and are careful about getting the facts right. Conservative by nature they are often reluctant to take any risks whatsoever.

I’m INTJ myself and I didn’t need no stinkin’ blog analyzer to tell me that Tyler is too 😉 Neat tool, though.

I got my exact “opposite”! Normally INTJ scored ESFP, though it should be noted that when I normally take the test, I score a 60/40 split on most characteristics, so it’s not too extreme. I reckon that I explore different facets of my personality in choosing my profession vs. telling friends and family about my baby boy.

Is there some way of lettingthem know that there is a demand for these?

Well, thing is, many people are often different people online, introversion may become extroversion and many things change as what you type may not always be what you will say. So there the analyzer is accurate only to the extent of your “online personality” i guess. There’s only that much info it can infer from.
