What’s Your Blog’s Personality?

less than 1 minute read

Doc points to his Linux Journal entry in which he discusses Typealyzer, a site that, given your blog URL, divines its ‘personality’ as a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Of course, the first thing I did was to point it at myself, with somewhat surprising results. According to Typealyzer, Superpatterns is ISTJ - a ‘Duty Fulfiller’. From Typealyzer:

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 in their own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

Now, I consistently test as ENTP - the ‘Visionary’ - hands waving in the air in front of the whiteboard, the opposite of Superpatterns on every axis except ‘thinking’, in fact. I suppose Superpatterns must be where I reveal my quiet, methodical side :-)




Ha well, I'd say the ol' typealyzer must assume everyone who writes a technically detailed blog is an introvert, because they certainly didn't peg me on that particular scale.

INTP - The Thinkers
The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.
