The Myers-Briggs Personality Type of Your Blog or Site Name

I owe the owner of the blog Life Lessons: An Owner’s Guide for the subject of this post regarding the TypeAlyzer website. The site takes your English or Swedish blog or website URL and churns out some information about your Myers-Briggs personality type, among other things, based on what it can sample of text on your blog. I don’t know how much I’d trust its sampling, but that’s OK. This is for fun.

My post here adds some information which you might find useful after you try your site name on TypeAlyzer because it is rather short on follow up information. You might also want to try some of the real tests to which it refers and get something more real with more depth and meaning for yourself, if you are not familiar with the Myers-Briggs theory. I’m a Myers-Briggs fiend because it changed my life, allowing me to make sense of people… though it’s not a simple theory to practice as I do since people are not easy. Otherwise, people wouldn’t need this test or psychology.

The site is for fun. What I want to introduce you to, if you don’t know it, is for real.

When you enter a site name, the site returns a four letter personality code. Click here to go to the Personality Page site and click on the letter combination among 16 there, and links on those pages to find out more about the personality type. You can get learning styles, loving styles, best career choices and other things. Just remember, this is no bogus fun stuff. Myers-Briggs has been taken by tens or more of millions of people in the world over the years. It’s quite often used as a human resource tool in professional situations.

If you want to give Myers-Briggs a try, use this Human Metrics version.

So what are you and how did you match up with your real results?

My Results

http://digitalcitizen.ca returns an ISTJ, the Duty Fulfiller.

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 in their own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

That’s almost accurate… for my blogging. I blog daily like it is a duty, and out of altruism like it is my duty to do my part to help the world in this little way. However, this is a concepts blog, for the most part. It’s all about ideas, like I am, which is iNtuitive (N) instead of Sensing (S). I am an ENFJ, the Giver (sound like Duty Fulfiller in some ways to you?) bordering on ENTJ, the Executives or Field Commander. Look at the strong opinions here and you’ll see why I have an ENTJ streak in me. I’m borderline T and F for scores on the Myers-Briggs Test.

The Love Type answer returns the same ISTJ result. I definitely do not love like a duty fulfiller, though, I can guarantee you that!

In the Sports Type, I am a Guardian, supposedly.

“Sports teach us loyalty, discipline and teamwork!”

The Guardians are sensible, down-to-earth people and the true stabilizers of society. They believe that in the long run loyalty, discipline and teamwork get the job done right. They are in a way the most social of all types and sees sports as a great opportunity to bond with friends and family. They value customs and traditions strongly and love flag waving, mascots and memorial ceremonies of any sort. They gravitate towards family-friendly team sports with long traditions such as baseball. They´re always on the look-out for decent fun to share with their loved ones.

Sports of preference:
Football, Baseball, Basketball and any other sport that lets you spend quality time with your family and friends.

Not very good, I’m afraid. I’m a marathon runner. I sometimes watch football but only because it requires so little attention I can multitask in life. I would not watch sports to be spending “quality time” with family and friends unless they wanted to, not me.

Finally, for the Archetype or generic persona, the result says

Motivation: Belonging

Desire to be yourself and find out about the world

Archetypes:
The Orphan – “all men and women are created equal”
Lover – “I only have eyes for you”
Jester – “If I can´t dance, I don´t want to be part of your revolution”.

Not good, but not bad. Of course, we all want some sort of belonging. I blog solo, though. I don’t visit too many other blogs and interact because I know what I want to read and I don’t feel a need to interact that much online. I prefer face time over Facebook, let’s just say.

Any comments?

  1. Thanks for the shout out. It’s something fun to do. My results for my blog were ISFP (The Artist). I tend to agree with that. 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.

    I want to help others through my blog. http://lifelessons4u.wordpress.com

    Take care.

    • Hi Janice,

      Thank you very much for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and want to know more. I’m not sure what you mean by “reads better”, but I have several answers. Hopefully, one hits the spot.

      If you mean the descriptions of the personality types being more accurate, easy to understand and such, I definitely recommend the link I had to the Personality Page
      http://personalitypage.com/portraits.html

      I don’t even know how to link in my comments like you do as a commenter, isn’t that funny?

      If you mean a test that is more accurate, I personally prefer the one in David Keirsey’s book Please Understand Me. It’s an older version but I have not found one I liked more for the style of the questions asked being like real life situations with options on real actions rather than Yes/No answers. The book is out of print, but probably not hard to find.

      If you mean a personality type that reads, as in literally reading better, that’s a skill otherwise. Sensing or S types (second letter) probably absorbs learning from reading better, being the more hands-on, literal, things as they see it types.

      Finally, if you mean reading people, I then point you to Emotional Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman. There’s a test for that, too. The book was absolutely fascinating to read.

      I hope one of those is the answer to your question. If not, please clarify further. Thank you.
