Try Typealyzer with your favourite blog (whether that’s your own pride and joy or someone else’s). It in no way depends on an in-depth knowledge of Myers-Briggs personality tests, nor subscription to the validity of personality testing in general. I merely present it to you as an amuse-bouche. I have three blogs, and evidently each offers a different facet of my personality.
A jumped-up pantry boy – ENFP – The Inspirers
‘The curious and insightful type. They are especially attuned to possibilities that involves peoples potential. They usually have a lot of relations and are very perceptive and often unconventional.
They enjoy working together with people and to make use of their enthusiasm. Lonely work and environments with many distractions make them scattered and often gloomy feeling overwhelmed withdraw further.’
Backed with – 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.’
A wild slim alien – INFP – The Idealists
‘The meaning-seeking and unconventional type. They are especially attuned to making sure their beliefs and actions are congruent. They often develop a passion for the arts or unusual forms of self-expression.
They enjoy work that are aligned to their deeply felt values and tend to strongly dislike the more practical and mundane forms of tasks. They can enjoy working alone for long periods of time and are happiest when they can immerse themselves in personally meaningful projects.’
The day I was Myers-Briggsed at work I had a raging headache, so I was never sure I came out right anyway. Even less sure now. Though it looks like I’m defintely an N, definitely a P. Wikipedia may help those who are curious make sense of their four letter indicator. How many of you are saying ARSE, SHIT or FUCK right now? It’s all Jung’s fault.
