What Type Of Writer Are You?

by Amanda J Evans on January 19, 2009

I just had my blog personality analysed over at Typealyzer.com and I thought I’d share the results with you.

ISTP – The Mechanics of my blog is reported to be:

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.

Sounds good doesn’t it?

You also get an analysis that shows you what parts of your brain were dominant during your writing.  This is a graphic so I can’t show it to you here but I’ll tell you what it says.  For me while I am writing here on The Hidden Writer the left side of my brain is working the most.  Practical thinking is dominant using logic and mathemathics in my writing.  Also in use are senses such as habit, order, and details.

Overall I’m quite happy with this analysis but I think I’ll check back in a month or two to see how things change or if they change at all.

What about you, why not head over to Typealyser and see what type of a writer you are when creating your blog.  Be sure to post your results in the comments, I’d love to read them.

Until next time,

Keep writing.

Great tool. I got same result from both my blogs – I’m a Duty Fulfiller – hardworking, attuned to the details of life and careful about getting the facts right. Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to work at their own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

I agree with all that, but not that I’m conservative by nature or reluctant to take risks.

Thanks Belena for your comment. Yes I found this tool really insightful too. Glad you liked it and that you took the time to let me know your results.

My blog was an 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.”

It is scary how right on it was – and I didn’t even realize that I wrote this way! Thanks for sharing the link : )

I’m glad you liked this tool. I couldn’t believe that accuracy either. I do always try to solve problems in my blog posts and I love rising to challenges. how a piece of software can tell this is beyond me.

I’m another Mechanic like yourself, Amanda. I agree with the independent, problem-solving bit, and also that I prefer to avoid inter-personal conflicts (don’t most people?). I’m not a frustrated police officer or firefighter though, and neither do I seek out risky activities for fun. I guess being a freelance writer gives me all the danger I want in my life!
