    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.

    You’re an early bird too, huh?

    Great links. I guess I didn’t make the cut again. Oh well, I’ll keep trying. :)

    Hi Kim,,

    I’ve always said you’d make a great firefighter. ;-)

    I got ESTP. It said that I like soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. I don’t know what about my black and dark blue blog made them think that about me. Maybe the white text? And does my blog smell sweetly?

    It said I live in the moment and am always at risk of exhausting myself…this thing REALLY does not know me.

    It did peg me right on here: “They 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.”

    Thanks for the link to the wordpress tutorials too. :-)

    @George – Glad to supply your Sunday reading material :-)

    Sorry about Chelsea ;-)

    @Jim – LOL The last part if you but the first part isn’t. But it’s analyzing the content of your blog not your personality ;-) Maybe the sweet came from your article about food …?

    LMAO Kim – I was the same as Raju – organising and efficient. I don’t know about organising but I’m definitely disorganised a lot of the time.

  5. says

    @Raju Well, the test says YOUR blog is organized and efficient, not you ;-)
    Thanks for finding me on twitter.

    @Cath Well, then you and your blog have different personalities ;-)

    Well, once again I’ve got my reading cut out for me. Another great list!

    The Typealizer said my site was an INTJ – a scientist. First time I’ve been called that! A few excerpts:
    “The long-range thinking and individualistic type.” Individualist, surely.
    “The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity.” I do like the research side of my topic, and enjoy wading through research papers.
    “Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communicating their visions to other people” Yep. Do have a hard time translating it all into something people can actually read.
    “Since they are extremely good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.” I do enjoy working alone, and can concentrate for hours if my mental conditions let me.

    You didn’t say whether you agreed with Typealyzer’s assessment. Do you actually like driving race cars?

    Mike Nichols´s last blog post – Phobia Names: Why Can’t We Just Agree?

  7. says

    @Mike – You’re right, I didn’t :-) I agree with the first paragraph about being independent and that I like solving problems. I’m VERY independent. And we know I fixed the broken chair ;-) I don’t particularly like conflict but don’t seem to be very good at avoiding it. I think that’s because I’m independent and speak my mind when I disagree with something. Ask Jim – I was always on the s**t list of our manager because I was questioning her bizarre ways.

    The 2nd paragraph is completely wrong. I don’t care for action and am not that adventurous – unless it’s in a videogame. I despise cars and don’t drive. I wouldn’t want to be on the police force but think I would have enjoyed a career in law enforcement.

    I got this from Typealyzer:
    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.

    Thanks for the links! And You taught me to put the name of my site into the Name section in a comment. You did it on TwiTip.com and I thought it was brilliant!

  9. says

    Hi Matt – Do you think the Duty Fulfillers is accurate?

    There is some controversy about posting your name like that. Some people like it. Others think that it’s a technique used by spammers. Personally, I think if the person is using their real name that there is no reason why they also shouldn’t include the name of their site. I started doing it recently but don’t always remember.

    How neat, Typealyzer said my blog was ISTP. Whenever I take those personality tests I get INFP. I guess I blog differently than I write. It does sound a lot like me, but I’ve got the knack of seeing myself in everything. That’s why I am no longer allowed to poke around medical sites.

    Hi Tracy – Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    I think the Typealyzer analyzes keywords found in the articles so it could be picking up terms that our very different from our personality.

    I noticed that commentluv didn’t work with 2.7. Hopefully when it is released Andy will have that fixed. It’s going to take awhile to sort through all my plugins for the different blogs to see if their is any issues. Thanks for that link Kim.

    My blog personality type is…

    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 in their own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

    Seems to fit me, except for the conservative by nature line. :)

    @Kristi – From what I know of you that sounds almost just right – except for the conservative part. Did you take a break for the holiday? I haven’t seen you around too much recently :-)


  1. […] Later this week, I plan on making my own Turkey Briyani. One of my friends gave me an impromptu Indian cooking lesson and I’m eager to try it out. Even if it is with Turkey. Another one of my favorite bloggers, kwbridge, found a personality test for blogs (I’m a doer!).  Pretty cool stuff. If you blog, head over to her place and check it out.  […]
