Analysis

Catching up on my subscriptions while watching Chris play Fable 2 and found these two blog analysis tools:

The Typealyzer does a Myers-Briggs analysis of your blog based on your writing - not surprisingly, it classifies me as an ESTP. I suspect that many blog authors are an "E" in any case - a blog is public, after all. I'd be curious about the demographics here. It's been a long time since I took a Meyers-Briggs test, so I don't remember what my classification was...I should see if they match this result.

The Gender Analyzer guesses at the blog author's gender. Apparently, I write like a man.

  1. I got the same results for both on my blog as well. Interesting.
    However, when I took the lengthy Myers-Briggs test a few years ago I got ISFJ, which is not all that similar. My Myspace blog has the description of that one, and I think it's more accurate than the ESTP result. Something interesting though, I write much more confidently than I act, so maybe that skews the results.

  2. Interestingly, Typealyzer called my blog an ESTP as well, though in my case this is closer to my MBTI type: I'm an ESTJ. Maybe I judge less and perceive more on the web? Or maybe three's a crowd and Typealyzer calls everyone an ESTP? :)

  3. It gave me ESTP as well. I am not an "e" at all. I think I usually get INTJ or ISTJ when I do the myers-briggs. I am wondering if it bases the results on something like spelling and grammar? I will try it with some other peoples blogs and see what I find. As far as gender, "We guess (myblog) is written by a woman (57%), however it's quite gender neutral." Really? My posts are usually about shopping for make-up and shoes aren't they? Fun little widgets though. Thanks!

  4. I have tried 6 or 7 other blogs and always get ESFP. It calls them "the performers."

  5. I don't want anyone or anything to analyze my writing. I know I suck!!

  6. I have a theory that we write in an "E" voice on our blogs - since, in choosing to write a blog in the first place, we are being extroverted.

    As for writing like a man, I'd be really interested to see how they determine that. I'm sure it must be word choice and such.

  7. Ha! this is awesome. It lists me as ESFP, which is about as far from my actual personality as possible. I've always been an ISTJ or an INTJ, whenever I've actually taken a personality test. I actually resisted writing a blog for forever because I didn't like the idea of the attention, but then I thought it was pretty narcissistic to assume I'd actually GET any attention and I really needed a way to post pics for family back home.

  8. And we're both men (I'm 60% apparently), however my blog is "quite gender neutral". According to them. Go figure.

  9. I was classified as an ESFP. I myself have tried to figure myself out using tests and other methods. I'm an EN(F/T)P. I'm really strong on N and P but the E/I and F/T changes on my mood and where I'm at. I agree with Grumpator that if you blog that you are most likely to get E. Also when we write, we describe those things that we sense like what we see, hear, or do. This would gravitate it towards S.

    Also apparently I write 60% like a woman. I'm curious as to how they obtain their results as well.
