The profund-o-meter rates this post a big fat zero.
I thought I’d find a new home for the periodic retests of this blog’s “personality type,” rather than keep adding more and more comments to this post.
When I wrote the post (November 13, 2008), I was surprised to find Typealyzer rating me (or rather “me as in this blog”) as Myers-Briggs ESTP, particularly given that “E” stands for “Extrovert” and the description of this type, “The Doers,” includes “They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through.” I believe the latter is demonstrably false, and I’m pretty clearly an introvert (and scored that way on a real Myers-Briggs test).
A handful of people may or may not be doing their own tests every couple of weeks to see how things change over time. I was still ESTP on November 21–but started out as INTP, a much more plausible finding, on November 10.
I’ll try to remember to update this blog every week or two for a while…and somehow I forgot to do that on December 1. (Unless I posted it somewhere else.) So much for the controlled experiment. Anyway:
December 7, 2008: ISTP – “The Mechanics.” At least I’m back on the Introvert side, but “They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters”? Not so much.
