Meyers-Briggs for Blogs

I've long been fascinated by the idea of personality types. Today, I found a site that analyzes the personality of blogs! Typealyzer

Of course, I had to try it out for this blog, because I know what my personal type is, at least according to a professional analysis I had 15 years ago, INTP.

According to the typealyzer, my blog is ESTP. Here's their description of ESTP, the Doers:
The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
Being a Doer, I just had to go to bloglines and copy address after address into the typealyzer to see what all my favorite blogs rate as. Funny thing, I must have put in 30 addresses, and all but two were Performers, ESFP. Obviously, I like to be entertained when reading blogs.

I just had to keep entering addresses, of course, looking for something else. I found only a few other Doers (and yes, I predicted those before I confirmed), one Artist, and one Mechanic. Now I'm wondering what other possibilities there are. Write me a comment, please, if you find something else!

So my type is fairly consistent, although I know that I am truly an introvert rather than an extrovert. The only introvert blog I hit was one that published very infrequently.  

Do you agree with your blog analysis?


  1. Well, it says that I'm another performer. But it only took seconds. How did it come to that conclusion? I need to know how it's programmed, or does it just spit out a certain number of performers, doers, and the others.

    I don't get it. But I think it's on target none the less.

  2. OK Painted threads is a performer and painted threads projects is a doer. pretty funny, I guess it was kind of accurate in its assessment. Curious how it comes to that analysis.
