Type Analyzing Blogs

December 2nd, 2008

Ayende blogged about this web site which you can use to analyze the text on your blog (and those of others). It makes some guesses about the personality of the person(s) that write on the particular blog.

Turns out that both my personal blog and ElegantCode yields the same results:

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.

Till next time

    I tried a few different websites and they all say INTJ, is it possible to get anything apart from that or is that the whole point?!

  • http://elegantcode.com Jan Van Ryswyck

    Yup, thats the whole point. But its fun anyway :-)

    No, you can get something different. I got the same as Ayende did “INTP – The Thinkers”.

    Actually, I’m an INTP, but the site says I’m an ISTJ (which isn’t too far off either).

    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.

    The Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to work int heir own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

    Cool find; I got ENTP, fairly close to my true INTP personality. Myers-Briggs is all shades of gray in any case!

    Instead of slapping a label on you, the Germans would describe you as ‘Morphiumsüchtig.’The verb suchen means to seek. So that might be translated, loosely, as ‘morphine seeky’ or even more loosely as ‘morphine-seeking’. I prefer ‘seeky’ because it means you have an inclination to seek morphine.
