My blog isn’t my type!

I couldn’t resist Stehen’s link to Typalyzer, which does a Myers-Briggs evaluation of your blog to discover who you, the author, are.  I think I was attracted to it because Stephen said he always ends up testing INTJ, and his blog did, too.  I usually test INTJ myself, so I was intrigued.  But when I typed in the URL of this blog, I discovered that I am:

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.

Now, that doesn’t sound like me at all.  So I tried it again, and the results were the same.  Does this mean that my blog and I are doomed?  Can I really exist in cyberspace as an ESTP and in the “real” world as an INTJ?

While I took the test and began this post as a joke, it has made me think about how I am someone different online from in real life.  I can’t really explain it but I can see that I am an ESTP here,  I know this has something to do with writing, which has always been a very liberating experience for me.  But I find this all really interesting.  I am going to have to think about it some more.

To find your own food for thought, check out Typealyzer yourself.

    I ran my blog and my son’s blog through. I’m a doer/practical and my son is the scientist/thinker. Honestly, I would have said you were a doer without running your blog through just knowing you.
