Wanna know what kind of personality your blog has? Use the Typealyzer and find out!
This is it’s analysis of Jack Of All Trades:
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.
Here is my writing brain analyzed:
I think that’s pretty spot on.
I was curious if one of my other blogs would get a different result, so I put in the Math & Science Resources blog and got:
ISTJ – The Duty Fulfillers
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.
Well, that seems to make sense too because that blog’s purpose so far has been to only share information. But I did notice that my brain at work on both blogs is nearly identical.
So, give it a try and let me know what you were and if you think it’s what you really are!

I tired it and it was a bit off. I think it was ISTP. I took one recently and it was a bit different although I don’t remember exactly what it was. Still it’s a neat tool. I guess it probably is an accurate reading of my writing personality.
ESFJ – The Socializers
Bryan, I don’t think of you as being an introvert. That reminds me of those + charts that some time accompany this kind of analysis that shows how much you fall into each area.
I was labeled an extrovert on one (which I think most people I know would agree with) and and introvert in the other. Makes me wonder what words are looked at to make that decision.
Nathan, the socializer 😉 I was very relived flibbertigibbet wasn’t listed for me 😛
Oh yeah I’m a big introvert. However I learned to be extrovert when I need to be so I can turn it on if I have to. However I prefer being introverted.
Both my blogs — one for dulcimer, one for the rest of life — came out as the exact opposite of my usual type — I’m INFJ, and got ESTP for both blogs. Odd.
“The Scroll” got INTP – The Thinkers:
“The logical and analytical type. They are especially 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.”
I think most of that is probably true about my blog and about me personally. I hate to think that some people may think of me as “arrogant” but my time on BaptistBoard tells me that it happens on the internet. Not so much in real-life though. In person I think I tend to come across a bit softer than I do on blogs and forums. I really doubt I am alone in that. 🙂
Bryan, I am introverted at times and I have to have some time away from people periodically or I get surly.
Marcy, that is odd. You’d think at least one of the four would be the same.
Martin, I’ve never read anything you wrote that made me think arrogance. Well informed is what comes to mind! I have noticed that not every one on the Baptist Board knows how to carry on a conversation and that they jump to making accusations instead of discussing the item on the table. Sad.
I tried setting specific categories and tags and dates, and I still mostly get ESTP, occasionally ESFP, and occasionally INTP. Sure is interesting. I get too second-guessy trying to take a Myers-Briggs test these days, but I wonder if my present result would be quite different from the INFJ of my high school years.
Marcy, when I was in HS, I was an I – not just a little I, a great big one! We had a household that was stifling. So, I leave, marry a man who is such a fabulous supporter and I change. By the time I was in my late 20’s and took the test again, I was very different. The I was what I remembered though because I didn’t cross the E line just a little, I crossed it big time. So I do think we can change over the years. Maybe not like I did, but change anyway.
I tried it, and it was really close. My wife and I recently took in depth MB personality typing at a conference, and apparently my blog is really close to my personality. Thanks for the heads up.
Peter, I think it’s especially neat when they do turn out close or even the same. I’m always striving for consistency!
