What's Your Blog's Personality?
I heard on the radio that there was a site out there that analyzed the text on blogs and determined from your writing style what your personality is.
A short Google search later, I found Typealyzer, which had this to say about the writing style of ChaosScenario:
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.
To help give the analysis context, the site gives a "scan" of the brain parts presumably most heavily used. Here's what ours looks like:
The site doesn't claim to test the actual personality of the site author, but rather the personality of the role that person assumes when writing the blog. Hence, on another blog I author, though my brain diagram was similar, my analysis seemed much different:
The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity. Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communicating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use concrete examples. Since they are extremely good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.
It's an interesting exercise and you should really try it out, but without a clear view of "the man behind the curtain," I'd admonish you to take Typealyzer's advice and "don't take it too seriously."
It doesn't measure the quality of a blog; it just gives you something to think about. - Cam Beck
P.S. Typealyzer would do well to turn its results into distributable content. I'm sure a lot of bloggers would be glad to spread the word if it were easy to do so -- even if, like me, they don't completely understand it.
