In which this blog takes a personality test

Via Academic Cog and New Kid on the Hallway, the Typealyzer: a site that analyzes your blog's Myers-Briggs personality type. In my case, it wasn't far off. Every time I've taken the Myers-Briggs test, I've scored as either an INTP or, on a couple of occasions, INTJ. The Typealyzer thinks my blog is a bit more practically oriented than I am:

ISTP – The Mechanics

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.

I'm surprised that it pegged my writing style as more oriented toward sensing than intuition, and the whole "race-car driving" bit is way off, but actually, I kind of like the idea of being a mechanic. Who knew this blog would be where I'd channel my inner Kaylee Frye?

    Not sure it’s totally accurate. Today it says my site is ESTJ, which seems like a long ways away from my normal INTP Briggs-Meyer score, though it seems to show up as INTJ fairly often recently.
    Still not sure if you change types over time, though I seem to have become more judgmental as I’ve gotten older.

  2. I bet it’s all the knitting talk. That can get very technical, at least it seems so to us non-knitters.
