I’ve been running a couple of blogs over the past few months, this one and another which catalogues my time in Dubai. Dave Snowden put me in touch with the tool, Typealyzer, that does a quick (it takes only a couple of seconds) scan of your blog site and analyses the writing style and assesses your Myers-Briggs type.
I was interested to see that this knowledgefutures blog is of the type INTP
INTP – The Thinkers
“The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.
They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.”
The lukedubai blog was completely different in all respects – they analysed it as ESFJ – The Socialisers
“The social and opiniated type. They are especially attuned to the feelings of themselves and others. They tend to be very aware of the values of their peer-group and tend to see things as either right or wrong, good or bad. They tend to be traditional and value their friends and family the most.
The Socializers are down-to-earth, practical people and very keen on making sure everyone is alright. This quality makes them enjoy social work places. Since they enjoy beeing and keeping things neat and tidy, they often also enjoy working in such environments.”
Which just goes to show what I think of Myers-Briggs Type Indicators! And to also show how easy it is for someone to behave differently according to the particular context.
And what am I in real life? Well last time I tested, I was INFP or INTP so perhaps my knowledgefutures identity is closer to real life!
