What Your Blog Writing Says About You…
We all interpret others and put them into different personality categories. You know what I mean: “She’s a Type A,” “Uncle Ned is a control freak,” “Your brother is too laid back,” “Gina is an asshole.”
There are lots of systems and tests out there used in typing people’s personalities, some more useful than others. I’m going tell you a little about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). What this does is measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.
These preferences were derived from theories proposed by Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Jung. He came up with the idea that there are four principal psychological functions we all use in experiencing the world around us. They are sensation, intuition, feeling and thinking. With every person, one out of these four functions usually stands out the most above the other three.
We all have specific preferences in the way we interpret our experiences, and these preferences influence our needs, interests, values and motivation, and this what the MBTI reveals by breaking all of this down into sixteen different personality types based on those four psychological functions of personality: High-Level Description of the Sixteen Personality Types.
So, my fellow blog writers, put your blog writing to the test…personality test, that is. Here is a site that can interpret your personality from the writing contents of your blog. Just click here and enter your blog’s URL.
Here’s what it had to say about me. Is it BS? Well, some say this is pretty accurate; however, I have added my remarks in italics:
ESFP – The Performers
Yeah, that’s me…I’m a, “Performer.” It kind of implies that I’m a ho. Whatever.
The above picture was accompanied with my results. Looks a little ho-ish (aka slutty) if you ask me. Hello?–AHEM!–my eyes are up here!
Supposedly, I’m the entertaining and friendly type, especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill my surroundings with soft beautiful textiles, bright colors and sweet smells.
Um, kind of. Textiles? Sure, especially if they’re handmade. Bright colors? Not so much. I prefer dark, rich colors. Sweet smells? Nope! I prefer things that smell fresh and clean.
I live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead. I’m always at risk of exhausting myself.
Yes, I prefer to live in the present and people who live in the past or can’t let the past go, irk the shit out of me (Ahem). I’m also a planner, which is where my OCD kicks in, usually at the worst possible moment. To me, it’s about having some sort of control in my life. Exhausting myself? Ah, yes, insomnia. Who needs sleep?
Apparently, I love being around people and having new experiences.
Okay, I snorted at this one. I do not love being around people. At all. Unless I know them really well, but most of the time, I don’t allow myself to get that far. Depends on the person. If I’m forced into a public situation (i.e. party), you’ll find my withering away in the corner, probably behind the curtain. The only thing that will be visible would be the tips of my shoes or the flash of light you saw as I left the building.
Living in the here-and-now, and I often do not think about long term effects or the consequences of their actions.
True. I’m often blunt and find that my foot fits nicely in my mouth if inserted at just the right angle.
ESFPs experience life to the fullest. They enjoy people, as well as material comforts. Rarely allowing conventions to interfere with their lives, they find creative ways to meet human needs. Active types, they find pleasure in new experiences.
Didn’t I just cover this?
According to this analysis, I enjoy work that allows me the ability to help other people in a concrete and visible way.
True, but I prefer to remain anonymous when helping others.
I tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation — qualities that can make it hard for me in management positions.
Very true! I hate conflict, but often find myself immersed. It’s kind of difficult to avoid when I’m so busy putting my foot in my mouth.
ESFPs are excellent team players, focused on completing the task at hand with maximum fun and minimum discord.
Common satisfying careers:
Artist (Depends), Performer (Not really. You have to like people for this, yes?), Actors (Isn’t this a performer?), Teacher (Absolutely!), Social Worker (Maybe, but then again…), Nurse (Hell no), Event Coordinator (That’s funny!), Chef (YEEEEEESSSSS!), Fashion Designer (Sure, if I can design sweatshirts and jeans), Jeweler (Not so much), Retail Manager (hahahahahaha!), Recreation Worker (What the…what?), and Interior decorator (Sure, if my customers like the rustic look, but something tells me that would limit my customer base. Just a hunch).
Notable ESFPs (not a complete list):
Richard Branson (I’d like to have his money so I can travel.)
Hugh Hefner (Ugh!)
Mel Gibson (Not a compliment. At all!)
Justin Bieber (This isn’t either! SHIT! I am not a punk ass bitch who pees in mop buckets, thankyouverymuch!)
Miley Cyrus (Okay, seriously? This list just keeps getting worse. I have not, “twerked” in the past, do not currently, “twerk,” nor do I see myself, “twerking” in the future. If you ever witness me, “twerking,” or grinding up against Robin Thicke [or a foam finger for that matter], slap the shit out of me. Please!)
Lady Gaga (REALLY? Just shoot me now…)
Chewbacca (Okay, this is probably the most realistic, especially considering the amount of annual leg shaving that occurs. What? My dogs don’t complain about the hair.)
If this is what my blog writing says about me, I’m an impostor, but it’s not like I haven’t warned you. I’ve told y’all before that you’d have trouble reconciling the real me versus the me that writes this blog.
How did your analysis go?
