I’ve just been pointed to Typealyzer from Vicki Davies’ blog. She’s a “Mechanic”; I’m a Guardian, apparently.

And the way my brain works is:

I’m devoid of feelings, apparently.

  1. … Now that’s one shrewd piece of software 😉 I would concur that you have those atttributes.

  2. Hi Emma, – weel I took the test too – what do you make of me being amongst

    INTJ – The Scientists
    The long-range thinking and individualistic type. They are especially good at looking at almost anything and figuring out a way of improving it – often with a highly creative and imaginative touch. They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be physically hesitant to try new things.

    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.

    I’ve finally foudn the explanation as to why I find it hard to be understood ;-~

  3. One more…

    Still a bit intrigued with the software – I rended up running the typalyzer on three separate blogs I own.

    The first blog I ran it on was the one I keep in a ‘fairly’ professional vein to reflect on things relevant to my job in general, e.g. weighing up the pros and cons of different facets of elearning – for that one I was a ‘Scientist’ (see previous comment for description).

    The second blog I call my ‘personal learning space’ – this is where I can keep a record of code that I have got working etc, links to useful websites etc for later reference – for this blog the Typealyzer said I was a ‘Duty Fulfiller’ (interesting since keeping up with programming is part of my job etc..)

    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. Conservative by nature they are often reluctant to take any risks whatsoever.

    The Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to work int heir own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

    I finally ran the software against a personal blog that is kept more for amusement than anything else (a very silly blog!) and it came back with this:
    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.

    … hmmmm!

  4. I also looked at my PhD blog – which has research related stuff & though I don’t keep it private as such, tend not to do the more “public” things in it … that had me as an executive & then my twitter a/c ( http://www.twitter.com/emmadw ) – which had me as a “doer”. (and thus the same comments as it just gave you !)

    We should “do” coffee 🙂

    In all cases, though, the brain pattern was pretty similar & I’ve got zilcho feelings apparently.
