All the Cool Kids Are Doing It

Been sick all week. Doing nothing of interest. In lieu of material, I followed the lead of 95% of people with blogs and plugged my blog into Typealyzer.com, which came up with this assessment of my personality:

ESFP - The Performers

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. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.


It also brings up a picture of a girl in a short skirt and knee-high boots, holding either a pint of beer or a malfunctioning lava lamp. I guess that's supposed to represent me.

Mixed bag. Friendly (mostly), entertaining (when drunk), rarely initiate confrontation -- all of those are accurate enough. Some of the other stuff, not so much. I really rarely care about fabrics.

Yeah, I'm not buying it. Mine said I was an ISTP, the mechanic thrill seeker, which I think came up because I once wrote that I wanted to quit my job and become a race car driver. I have to take that Myers Briggs thing every year for work, and I'm always ENFP. Maybe my cranky author side is mechanical.

Enjoy those fabrics, though, and your miniskirt. My guy is in overalls with a bandana. Rock on!

Mine says I'm an ESTP - The Doers. It could not be more wrong. This suggests that my blog and I are working with two different brains. Intriguing, in a 1950s B-movie sort of way.

I also did this one --

Which says that the PPA has a high school reading level. Hmmph. Look forward to discussions of particle physics!

Wow. Mine was elementary school.
Well at least my cynicism will reach a wide range of readers.

Yikes. Mine is elementary school, too. Time to start consulting the thesaurus and go polysyllabic.
