What sort of blogger are you? Typealyzer claims it can analyze a site and identify the blog host's psychological profile, based on Myers-Briggs types.

What it says about the author of NOfP:
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.
The last is dead wrong--concentration isn't my strong suit, and I hate working alone.

BTW, GenderAnalyzer says I'm 84 % female.

Interesting tools of unknown accuracy.

M_O_M and I both also come out INTJ.

She is probability 99% female - I think the Aunt postings did that.

Very oddly, I have a probablility of 56% of being male. It actually called my blog "gender neutral". I'd have expected the guns and swearing to get me higher than that!

Interestingly, is ISTP and 73% *Male*, of all things. Maybe all the other peoples's specific posts she links on her front page fooled it.

If only OBH had a blog! "What was that explosion?" ;-)

I've never laughed so hard at a comment before. OBH would break the meter.

Hey; I was INTJ back in the day when it was fashionable to get profiles like that...

Now, married to a bona-fide psychologist... she won't let me get away with those cute pigeon-hole things like Myers-Briggs or "left-brain, right-brain"... sigh.

She must be an EFTP...
