Myers-Briggs Blog Analysis

brainbox-1083011Here is a wheeze. Type a blog url into this webpage and it will attempt to analyse the style of the writing in terms of the Myers-Briggs typology.

It gets me bang on. Although I used to identify as an introvert in the first half of life, I think that those days are long gone. The typelizer has me as an ENFP, which it characterises as:

The curious and insightful type. They are especially attuned to possibilities that involves peoples potential. They usually have a lot of relations and are very perceptive and often unconventional.

They enjoy working together with people and to make use of their enthusiasm. Lonely work and environments with many distractions make them scattered and often gloomy feeling overwhelmed withdraw further.

It analyzes Bishop David as an ISTP. (“The independent and problem-solving type. They are 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…”)

It has Ruth as an ESFP – “The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells…”

More on the Myers-Briggs system on wikipedia.


  1. It seems that like Ruth, in my Blog writing style I am type ESFP, a performer!

    Not sure about the soft fabrics and sweet smell bit though!

  2. Much to my amazement, by blog came out as an ESFP, when I am without doubt an INTP.

    The E & F don’t surprise me, but S ??

    I wonder if it would be more accurate if I posted sermons.

  3. My fotopic site came out as:

    ESTP – The Doers
    “The active and play-ful 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.”

    What is interesting when looking at the brain picture is that it does not make any comment on being left-handed.

    PS – Little sister’s blog came up as ESTJ – The Guardians, with a picture of a Guardian Angel. How appropriate.

    Kimberly – I’m sure that INTPs are more than clever enough to write ESFP blogs with which to communicate to the outside world.

  5. Unbelievably, it was right on the button for me too, Kelvin. Slightly concerned as well that I am the same type as +David!

  6. Spooky, isn’t it?

  7. No, David: your blog is the same type as +David’s blog. We’ll need to see if he confirms.

    I still feel left out of the general sense of acuracy. Do you think the trouble is that most INTPs don’t so much blog as write the underlying programmes for blogs? (oh dear. Now I’m behaving like an E-F)

  8. INTPs are the people who worry about why someone else’s blog analysis programme cannot understand them properly and try to work through all the reasons why. Perhaps it knows what you are and is just teasing you.

  9. It has me down as `INTP – The Thinkers: The logical and analytical type’.

    It may be right, I dunno 😉

  10. I’ve never been an ‘S’ before but the rest was spot on, as was the description. Here I sit with a smelly candle by my side. Usually I am the same as you, ENFP, and reading your desciption struck a chord. Maybe I hold back on iNtuition when blogging. Weird.

  11. Moyra says

    It’s worth trying different archive pages, as some of the pages on mine come out ISTP and others ESFP.

  12. The machine thinks I’m an INTP:’ 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.

    Come on, all you real friends out there, give the machine the lie, and tell it I’m really bubbly, outgoing, sensitive, gentle and caring.


    Oh, all right then.

  13. Fr Dougal says

    I come out as an ISTP – Mechanic! Independent minded, likes to work things out (or won’t be told!). And my former type is ISTJ.

  14. Fr Dougal says

    Ruth’s preferences sound a bit like an Ottoman seraglio! 🙂

  15. Rosemary says

    ESFP – in fact I’m an INFP – but of course the blog engages the outgoing bits of me. I’m a cusp F?T so that is not far out, and it got the P right.
