Internet Treasures: Fun Ways to analyse your Blog

My post yesterday was rather serious, as I was in a deeply contemplative mood.

As is often the case when I feel myself diving too deeply into the inner ocean, especially the dark parts of it, which is necessary and rewarding, but I don’t want to drown or lose my sense of perspective, I tend to find ways to balance things out and create a bit of lighthearted buoyancy.

While browsing the wondrous riches of the WordPress community, I came across a blog which shares links to this, that and all sorts.

I had been searching for posts related to my MBTI – INTP – and getting rather cross (in a superficial manner) that so many of the results were for INTJ’s. I have nothing against that type at all – I suppose if I tried I could find something which annoys me about them, but since I’m a ‘P’ rather than a ‘J’ that’s not how my mind works (see what I did there – nudge nudge wink wink) –  what was irking me was that I wasn’t finding what I was looking for… yet sometimes that is the best way to find something.

And then I found this:

A post about – Typealyzer via A Feast For The Vain

Which led me to this:

Typealyzer – which analyses your blog and figures out its overall MBTI. You can read more about it via the About page and find out about its creator, Jon Kågström.

So I vainly inputted my blog url to see what MBTI my blog is, and if it would be the same as my type. Funnily enough I got the same result as the blogger who introduced me to this nifty link and sort of game.

Which is only one letter away from my own type, and as I read it I thought – perhaps I have my MBTI wrong. I don’t, but I’m open to being wrong even when I know I’m right.

The differences between ‘N’ and ‘S’ in the MBTI is not really that different:


Sensing (S)
Paying attention to physical reality, what I see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. I’m concerned with what is actual, present, current, and real. I notice facts and I remember details that are important to me. I like to see the practical use of things and learn best when I see how to use what I’m learning. Experience speaks to me louder than words.

The following statements generally apply to me:

    I remember events as snapshots of what actually happened.
    I solve problems by working through facts until I understand the problem.
    I am pragmatic and look to the “bottom line.”
    I start with facts and then form a big picture.
    I trust experience first and trust words and symbols less.
    Sometimes I pay so much attention to facts, either present or past, that I miss new possibilities.

Intuition (N)
Paying the most attention to impressions or the meaning and patterns of the information I get. I would rather learn by thinking a problem through than by hands-on experience. I’m interested in new things and what might be possible, so that I think more about the future than the past. I like to work with symbols or abstract theories, even if I don’t know how I will use them. I remember events more as an impression of what it was like than as actual facts or details of what happened.

The following statements generally apply to me:

    I remember events by what I read “between the lines” about their meaning.
    I solve problems by leaping between different ideas and possibilities.
    I am interested in doing things that are new and different.
    I like to see the big picture, then to find out the facts.
    I trust impressions, symbols, and metaphors more than what I actually experienced
    Sometimes I think so much about new possibilities that I never look at how to make them a reality.

I do both of those, often simultaneously. So either one is correct and applies. And most people have a bit of everything within them, we’re all a mix of opposites and what lies in between those extremes, so your MBTI is more about what dominates, your default setting, or something like that. This kind of reasoning, especially the -or  something like that – bit is very INTP.

Anyway… Where was I? What is this post about?

I sometimes find my ability to wander everywhere and nowhere very annoying…

Oh, yes…

After I’d played with the MBTI blog typealyzer, I wondered what other fun blog analysers existed out there – there had to be others, this sort of thing always comes in multiples.

So I went on a search, which was momentarily interrupted by finding out that by typing – do a barrel roll – into the Google search bar your search results’ page spins, and found:

AgeAnalyzer – Determine the age of a blogger

This could be… a dangerously tactless experience which deals an almighty blow to vanity. But curiosity requires such risk taking futility and insanity.

My blog’s results:




I’m 45. So… I think I’m flattered by the results… not sure really, this could be viewed in both a positive and a negative way, and a million other ways.

Moving on…


GenderAnalyzer – Determine if a blog is written by a man or a woman

Fairly straightforward, and perhaps quite useful considering the possibilities which the internet offers for changing who we are. For the most part I think knowing someone’s gender is less relevant than knowing who they are inside all the external things, but sometimes… it depends.

My blog results:




I’m female. At least that’s what my body tells me I am (and it confirms it once a month – TMI). However I do not pay much attention to gender stereotypes, therefore they do not define who I am and how I express myself. I am not really sure when I became aware of my gender and what it meant according to everyone else… I kind of just do my own thing, whatever that is.

I have no idea what to make of this result. So I won’t make anything of it other than an amusing tidbit in a post.

Moving on…


I Write Like – which analyzes a segment of your writing and then gives you a famous writer who had… a similar style? You can find out more about what it does and how it does it on the website.

This was tricky for me because I do different things with different posts, and my writing – is just me talking (mostly to myself) in type. So… which post to use?

I went with the one before this one, which wasn’t as rambling as other recent ones, and here is the result:




No, I don’t… but thank you very much for inflating my ego!!!

I do sometimes think there are Lilliputians messing with me, and my memoirs could be called ‘Gullible’s Travels’… and sometimes I feel like a Lilliputian dealing with something large and prone to squashing me should it fall awkwardly.


It’s all a bit of fun… not to be taken seriously. Serious is good. But be careful how you dose it.



  1. This is soooo interesting. You are brave! I would be hesitant to see what it tells me and would fear feeling I wasn’t communicating well. Intriguing and tempting though! Fun post.


    • Thank you very much 🙂

      I have to confess that I was not really paying attention to what I was doing as I was distracting myself. However three of the sites use the same analysis program, and it is only a program in its development stage and its results depend very much on what is inputted, and since that kind of input relies on humans, the results could be anything and are probably far from accurate.

      It was amusing and fun.

      Your ability to communicate is excellent! But of course communication is not all about the one communicating, it is also about the one listening or reading. We can only do so much and then the rest is beyond our control. A lot relies on trust. In ourselves, and others.


  2. Reblogged this on Beth Byrnes and commented:
    I just had to reblog this fun post from my friend at An Upturned Soul. It analyzed my blog and said the following:

    ESFP – The Performers
    The author of is of the type ESFP.

    The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft beautiful textiles, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. ESFPs love being around people and having new experiences. Living in the here-and-now, they often do not think about long term effects or the consequences of their actions.

    ESFPs live in the moment, experiencing 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.

    The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions. ESFPs are excellent team players, focused on completing the task at hand with maximum fun and minimum discord.

    Common satisfying careers: Artist, Performer, Actors, Teacher, Social Worker, Nurse, Event Coordinator, Chef, Fashion Designer, Jeweler, Retail Manager, Recreation Worker and Interior decorator.

    Notable ESFJs: John. F. Kennedy, Richard Branson, Hugh Hefner, Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, Quentin Tarantino, Mel Gibson, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Megan Fox, Jamie Oliver, Robbie Williams, Dan Brown and Chewbacca.


  3. I write like James Joyce x4 and Cory Doctorow x2… I pasted lots just to test heh. I don’t know who the latter is lol… I have Ulysses on the bookshelf… Never read it…

    The mbti was interesting, I got similar results to you… Am infp… It came back one letter off also as isfp… I also did it a few times lol, because it came back a little too quick I figured it was picking at random…


    • James Joyce! Ha… I tried reading Ulysses, and I know many people who’ve tried reading it, but I only know a couple of people who claim to have finished it and when I ask them what it’s about they change the subject. It’s one of those books which is a mystery, an impossible puzzle to solve!

      I’ve heard of Cory Doctorow. That’s about it.

      I did the MBTI blog test a couple of times, I even used the bit at the bottom to correct it, and still received the same result, which I think is fair considering that our blogs don’t contain all of us, but parts of us, and perhaps the MBTI result of our blogs gives us how we comes across to other people when we interact in a social sphere, rather than who we are in private within ourselves.

      Thank you for participating and sharing!


  4. Fun tools! I just tried the age one and it got it wrong – on the flattering side 🙂 I looked at the results analysis page and for the analyses where people have responded only 39% were correct! Worse than a 50/50…


    • Thank you 🙂

      Did you check out the blog of one of the guys – Jon Kågström – who is developing three of these blog tools, including the AgeAnalyzer. It’s very amusing. He’s a fan of science fiction.

      All the analysers results have a button at the bottom asking for our help in correcting their results. Which warmed me to the tools because it was kind of like a human saying – I am right… okay, maybe I’m not, maybe I have no idea what I’m doing… help! Made me chuckle. And it is only a bit of fun, but the concept is intriguing, even if the practice of it is a mess which is typically human.

      I did come across a fun quiz a while back – – which is designed to figure out if your brain is more male or female. As far as I can remember, it couldn’t decide the sex of my brain, I was 50/50 male/female or something like that.

      It’s fun to try things out, but at the end of the day, it’s up to us who or what we are 😉
