This is sooo fun! If you have a blog, you need to try the awesome Typealyzer personality predictor for bloggers. Just enter your blog URL and it will come back with a Myers-Briggs type that is surprisingly accurate, in my opinion!
It works best on an established blog, that has sufficient text to comparatively analyse. If you have more than one blog, you may get different results – particularly if your blogs focus on unrelated topics, or if a secondary blog is fairly new.
For this blog, I got the following result:
“The author of http://sloah.com is of the type ISTP [The Mechanics].
“The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment and are highly skilled at seeing and fixing what needs to be fixed, making them ideally suited for engineering. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.
“The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often seek out fun and action both in their work and personal life.
“ISTPs endure reasonable impositions without complaint – but if their “territory” is encroached upon, eroded, or violated, their quiet, easy-going nature is quickly abandoned in [favour] of stubborn and staunch [defence] of what they view as rightfully theirs.”
Do give it a go, and comment below with your results. Did you think it was at all accurate for you – or, maybe just your blog? And… yes, I know this is kinda off topic for my blog but it’s the summer holidays; we all need an occasional break from the serious stuff!
If I must find an educational angle, by all means use this tool to compare computer analysis to human prediction (of blog personality) for your older kids’ top 10 favourite blogs. Call it ICT or a summer project challenge for teens. Don’t say I’m not good to you. 😉
