I recently found this little blog personality analyser that scans your blog and puts down the personality it thinks you are based upon what you write. Apparently this is what it says about me:
ISFP – The Artists
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.
Strangely enough, I’m not going to argue with it because that part of me is surprisingly true. However, I have taken the Myers-Briggs personality test before and what I’ve gotten so many times over throughout the years is the often ruthless and methodical INTJ personality which is also true about me even if it’s completely opposite from what’s being quoted from my blog.
It did get me thinking about what I’ve always said about blogging. It’s always a reflection of yourself, the parts in the mirror that you don’t usually show in the real world. This kind of duality is like wearing a mask, hiding our face from the real world lest it not accept us for who we are, or at the very least, being unable to deal with the world we live in by being completely who we are.
So my blog shows the part of myself which I am unable to show in real life, the kind selfless voice of empathy and reason that some of you know me by, here in the digital world. A world that is far from the practical loner that sits in the corner of the room, breaking down everything he sees into concepts and possibilities simply because he can. It’s hard to believe that they can be the same person, but there are stranger things in this world than 2 halves of an incomplete whole.
If you got the time though, why don’t you try both tests and see if they match. Chances are, they won’t. But it would give you a good idea of the kind of person you are, and perhaps the kind of person you try so hard to be.
