I am a thinker. At least my blog is, according to the typealyzer, which takes blogs and analyzes their content against personality tests you have to take in corporate team building exercises. (Oddly, no-one ever got characterised as “lazy, stupid and boring” on those tests.)
Everybody knows that online personality tests are never wrong, so here’s what you need to know about me.
INTP – The Thinkers
The logical and analytical type. They are especially 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
I alway knew I was brilliant, but it took an online personality test to prove it, you fools.
So after wallowing in the brilliance of my own intellect for a while, I thought I should find out about the personality types of other leading bloggers (relax, that’s like calling someone a muscular ectomorph).
I discovered Iain Dale is a “Duty fulfiller”.
ISTJ – The Duty Fulfillers
The responsible and hardworking type. They are especially attuned to the details of life and are careful about getting the facts right (really? ed.). Conservative by nature (true dat, ed) they are often reluctant to take any risks whatsoever.
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.
Luke Akehurst is also a duty fulfiller, and most of Compass would say he’s a bit conservative.
On the other hand, Tom Harris is a do-er. That’s do-er, not dour.
ESTP – The Doers
The active and playful 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. (Is that where Reggie and Ronnie get it from? Ed)
Oh, and Paul Staines is.. a mechanic
….especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts. (Shome mishtake shurely? Ed.)
…seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars … (No further comment needed here, I think)
Nightjack is another Mechanic (neeee- naawww, neee nawww, imo).
So is Kerry McCarthy. Kerry and Paul, sitting in a tree, K.. I.. S.. No. The thought is too horrible.
Oddly, the only “Executive” I’ve found so far, (ENTJ – the loud mouth, opinionated manly type that every district sales manager fiddles their answers to be), is Political Betting.
So which blog souls should we expose next with our new found powers of perception?
