Personality disorder?

I played a bit with Typealizer which I found at Bonnie’s blog, who had it from Michael Bradley, only the result is a bit ambiguous.

I ran the test on the two sites I put the most effort into, and got rather different results.

The analysis indicates that the author of is of the type:

ESTP – The Doers

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.


This show what parts of the brain that were dominant during writing.

The analysis indicates that the author of is of the type:

ISFP – The Artists

The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people need. They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders. They tend to follow the path of least resistance and have to look out not to be taken advantage of.

They often prefer working quietly, behind the scene as a part of a team. They tend to value their friends and family above what they do for a living.

Well, its hard not trying to figure out what they’re doing, so a bit of searching revealed that it is a “Myers-Briggs Type Indicator” analysis they do.

The method uses four dichotomies to describe a personality:

Extraversion vs. Introversion
Sensing vs. iNtuition
Thinking vs. Feeling
Judging vs. Perceiving

This give rise to sixteen different personality types, named after the four letters.

The ESTP which I appear to be on this blog is Extrovert, Sensing, Thinking and Perceiving. According to the Wikipedia article an estimated 4.3% of the population of the USA is ESTP

ESTPs are hands-on learners who live in the moment, seeking the best in life, wanting to share it with their friends. The ESTP is open to situations, able to improvise to bring about desired results. They are active people who want to solve their problems rather than simply discuss them.

The ISFP I appear to be on the Venice Kayak site is Introvert, Sensing, Feeling and Perceiving.

ISFPs are peaceful, easygoing people who adopt a “live and let live” approach to life. They enjoy taking things at their own pace and tend to live in the moment. Although quiet, they are pleasant, considerate, and caring, devoted to the people in their lives. Though not inclined to debate or necessarily even air their views, their values are important to them.

I’m not really sure what to make of all this 🙂
