My Blog's Personality

What is your blog's personality profile? Does it have your personality?

Now there is a site that will tell you! According to typealyzer the personality of my blog or writing style is:

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.

Hmm - follow the path of least resistance? That doesn't sound great. But, I do often try to do things the easy way. I don't know if it's really accurate. I typically score ISTJ myself when taking the profile from a list of questions such as this website. In checking out many other blogs, I didn't find any that came out with an ISTJ profile. I wonder how the site decides what the writers personality style is.

So - check out your own blog's personality here - Is it what you expected?

That's interesting. I never would have thought about having a blog personality :-)
On those tests, I tend to score ISTJ too. I took it several years ago and then again a few weeks ago and it hasn't changed, so I guess that's one area where I've remained fairly consistent. Personalities are intriguing. They are expressed in different ways. Sometimes I wonder if people's personalities can change over time. Do you think that certain personalities will only be good at certain things? For example, as I look into various leadership opportunities, I tend to question if I would be good at them because of my more introverted personality tendancy. At the same time, I think that there are examples of people who are more introverted and who also lead well.
I'm not sure what conclusions to draw from the kinds of personality tests that I've taken. Sometimes it shows me a lot of areas where I want to be different but then I have to remind myself that God makes us how we are for a reason. Does that mean I just sit back and not even try to grow in the areas I'm weaker in? No, I think that especially as I'm in college and exploring options, it's good to try to stretch myself and try things that are even uncomfortable at the time.
Anyway, just some thoughts that your post sparked. Thanks for sharing the post!

Mine was ESFP - The Performers.

Here's the description:
"The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, 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.

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."

I suppose it could somewhat describe Maidens of Worth. I hope I plan ahead somewhat, however! =)

I was an ESFP- The Performers. I was actually surprised that I came up as an ESFP!

ISTP - The Mechanics

Here's how it described mine:
"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."
I do tend to be a problem solver and to think things through and avoid conflict. I also like adventure! Especially in the outdoors!

Interesting - three of four of you have a ESFP blog. I am so very curious how the program works!

I think that personalities can change over time. A person can learn to be more open and can work at what they might consider to be negative personality traits. But at the same time, God has given us different personalitites that are good for us. Leaders don't have to be extroverts. I think I'm still an introvert, but have become a little more extroverted starting around the time I went to college.
