Internet Treasures: Fun Ways to analyse your Blog

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.

They 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.

An Upturned Soul

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’…

  1. I wish I knew you better so I could either agree or disagree with their “Hallmark Card” description out your being.
    Over the years I’ve found myself on similar sites in hopes of reading something positive about myself.
    It didn’t take long to figure out that it was always positive and nothing negative. In fact if you took the dissertation apart sentence by sentence, they were inserts for fortune cookies.
    Seriously, have you ever cracked open a fortune cookie and read, “you’re ugly and your life is going down the toilet.”
    OMG, I don’t know what got in to me. Sorry for rambling on.
    The point is, I think, those sites are out there to give positive reinforcement, and after all isn’t that what we’re looking for?


    • Actually, I think this is based on a pretty well respected test, but you can’t analyze people instantly. I hit the button and it gave my results a second later, LOL! Also it said I am not a planner — which of course is the exact opposite. I am totally OCD/Anal-Retentive and plan everything out practically to the minute.

      Fortune cookie is exactly what it’s like but you know what? I didn’t copy it to the post, but I loved the graphic representation it did of me in a some sort of a party dress and that is what made me laugh and love it!

      Talk about wanting to be flattered, right?

      OK, so now the graphic image of “me” is in the post, hilarious that I am so easily persuaded!


  2. I got ESFP too! And yeah, it responded immediately.

    Also, I write like David Foster Wallace, I am a woman according to the gender analyzer, and I am between 36-50 years old according to the age analyzer.


    • I forgot to get to the age and gender analyzer, got distracted vacuuming here in the dust-bunny jungle. I will have to go back and do that. It uses Myers-Briggs which I am sure I did years back and got something different (you probably did that one too). (Forgive my ignorance, who is David Foster Wallace?) Well at least we are in the right professions.


      • DFW is a sad story. He wrote one novel that was nominated for all sorts of awards, may have been on a Time “best of the year” sort of list, lots of other stuff that was acclaimed…never read him myself, but knew his name. Sadly he suffered from depression and hung himself in 2008, I think. He was only 46 years old. So sad.


            • Me too. I thought we were all the same age…cough, cough. Luckily, age is just a state of mind. My mind stopped aging somewhere around 29. Unfortunately, by body did not follow suit.

            • The funny thing is, like you, I do tend to refer to myself by the next year but now I start saying I am almost 50 and I just realized that I got that from my mother. She is now saying, ‘you know, you are almost fifty and it’s time for you to consider slooowwwwinnnnng down’ – huh?


It's your turn! I want to know what YOU think :-)
