Many of us working in the corporate world have taken the Myers-Briggs psychometric test at least once. For those who are not familiar with Myers-Briggs (M-B), it is a test designed to understand a person’s psychological preferences and the M-B assessment classifies a person into one among the 16 different personality types. These 16 types are based on the 4 preferences mentioned below. According the M-B’s official website, the preferences are
2. Sensing(S) or Intuition(N)
3. Thinking(T) or Feeling(F)
4. Judging(J) or Perceiving(P)
A personality type is a combination of the 4 preferences above. For example, one person’s personality type could be ENTJ and another could be ISFP. The details about these 16 types can be found here.You may find out your own personality type by visiting this link
M-B test has been quite popular in the corporate circles and is used in identifying an employee’s personality type and assigning tasks accordingly. Now, a website called Typealyzer has come up with a new tool that determines the M-B personality type of a blogger. Unlike the real test where one is required to answer a series of questions, determining the blog personality type is quite easy. Submit the link of a person’s blog website to Typealyzer and voila! – you get the blogger’s personality type.
I personally found this website very interesting. After finding out my own “blog” personality type, I ventured into finding the “blog” personality types of IndiaSpecial’s most popular authors like Kandamangalam, Mukund, Nars and others in the list. I was surprised by the pattern I found. I don’t want to spoil the fun by revealing what I found. So, find out for yourselfJ.
It would be interesting to understand the implications of this new tool, Typealyzer. Will bloggers start writing differently? What do you think?
