Typealyzer is a site that analyzes your blog and tells you what your blog's Myers-Briggs personality type is. Silly? Decidedly.

In the dawn of the Internets, people used to take these personality tests about themselves and their friends. In the decade of web 2.0, we take these about our blogs. I can't wait until they come out with tests about which blog has a crush on which other blog. For the record, TOTI is ESFP:

"The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. 

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions."

Oh not! Looks like no CEO jobs for TOTI.  Sigh.  They're right about several things though: Writing something EVERY DAY is exhausting, and I never know what the internets will bring ahead of time (carpe diem!). And the header is bright red, so they're right about loving bright colors. 

Metafilter, in contrast, is ISTP.

"The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts. 

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters."

Ooh, I love these personality tests ... though I usually wish I was something else! Fantastic find - thank you, TOTI! My blog came up as a Doer and I can see that - though I can see a lot of the Performer in me, too. (Maybe there's one type for each of the voices in my head!)

That's so funny that your blog and I are the same. I'm an ESFP also.
