Who Am I?

Typealyzer claims to analyse your personality, or rather your blog's personality, in that Myers-Briggs test manner. Mine comes out as "ESFP - The Performers", which is described as "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."

It's especially funny because whenever I do these tests I always come out as "INTJ": the exact polar opposite of this. And yet the description doesn't seem too bad, which makes me wonder if these Myers Briggs things are like astrology. No matter what you get, it matches - you know, give 200 people the identical horoscope and they all agree that it describes them perfectly...

LOL i just did my cooking blog, craft blog and personal blog and all came out the same (and the same as you)... hmmmm i think we need to test this on some people with very different blogs!

I got the same with EatAustralia, which is interesting ... then I managed to get a different result using my "infoaddict" site (only updated when I'm actively working in information management, which I'm not currently: http://havoc.typepad.com/infoaddict/).

The difference is that it doesn't talk about food :)

ESTP - The Doers
[ESTP]
The active and play-ful 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.

snort! my blog is the same, identical reading. I'm tempted to find a blog written in a non-Roman script and see what the blogalyzer does with that!

Wow! We must have been tables apart at Podfood on Sunday. I had much the same experience - unbrilliant service - we got left languishing without coffees or even a water top up for ages - and average food. God forbid a person ask if they have gluten free bread! Thank God the company was brilliant!
