“The logical and analytical type” — yeah, works for me

There’s this site called Typealyzer that has a cute shtick: enter the address of a blog, and they claim to provide a personalty profile of the blogger. So hey, just for kicks I thought I’d see what they had to say about me. Their “analysis” put me in a group labeled “the Thinkers”:

The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. 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.

Of course none of this should be taken too seriously. I put in the addresses of several other science fiction blogs and got the same result. I think it’s keying in on the frequent occurrence of the word “science.”

Still, it is strangely accurate. I think “using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality” is a great description of any serious science fiction fan.

And “logical and analytical”? Can’t argue with that. 😉

  1. I put in both Omphalos’ Book Reviews and Omphalos’ Blow Hole Noises and both times it came back with “The Mechanics:”

    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.

    The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

    Parts are right and parts are very wrong.

  2. I know you only settled for being a lawyer because your dreams of becoming a race car driver never quite worked out. 😆

  3. Who says I can’t do both. Wrong-righter by day; speed demon by night.

    Although if I were a firefighter or cop I would also have an excellent way to meet new clients.
