I came across this Myers-Briggs test for blogs, where you type in your blog link and it figures out the Myers-Briggs personality type for your blog.

A couple of my friends have told me that my writing voice is very different from my in-person voice. Specifically, they said I come across as fun in confident in my blog posts and in email. Which I guess means I’m boring and timid in person? :-)

I see this test confirms that. My Myers Briggs personality type is INFJ yet the type for my blogs is the exact opposite, ESTP:

The active and playful 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.

I’ve thought of my blogs (this one in particular) as a place where I’m totally myself as a writer. Yet the blog’s personality is opposite of my actual personality, which is amusing. Maybe there’s a diagnosis for that? :-)

By the way, even if you don’t have a blog, it’s fun to run the links of your favorite blogs through that analyzer to see what their type is.
