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?
