Typealyzer – What Type is Your Blog?

I came across an interesting site this morning.

Typealyzer.com sets out to analyze a blog based on the content and determines the personality type of the blog.

Typealyzer analyzes writing style in the blog based on text patterns, etc and determines the type of blog. Of course, naturally I put ShanKri-la to the test and we came out as

ISTJ – The Duty Fulfillers

The responsible and hardworking type. They are especially attuned to
the details of life and are careful about getting the facts right.
Conservative by nature they are often reluctant to take any risks

The Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to
work in their own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do

I am not sure if that is flattering or demeaning but I tend to take things positively. Even though the title seems a little discouraging, the details are more friendly and some of it even true.

I do like to work in my own pace – I feel no urge or desire to post for the sake of posting everyday or to some schedule. Of course, you know that as a regular reader.

One little secret I’d let you in is that actually I like reading others work more than I do writing. This results in me devouring a lot of stuff from the web but only writing about a select few that I really feel excited about here. I hope this shows in my writing than just being ‘dutiful fulfiller’.

Behind Typealyzer.com

There isn’t a lot of information about the site (no About page for starters) in the home page. But, the site does have an active Google Group for Typealyzer.

Reading through a few posts reveal that Typealyzer only analyzes the text directly on the url provided. So, I could have been really dynamic this whole year but Typealyzer determines the blog type by just the 10 posts in my home page.

So, try putting different pages of your site url to see what you get. For eg, search results page or archives page, etc.

Alternately, my wife’s Indian recipes blog SpicyTasty.com came out as ESFP – The Performers – the entertaining and friendly blog.

Our iPhone blog TopiPhoneResource.com came out as ESTP – The Doers – the active and play-ful type.

Let us know in the comments what type of blog is yours.

    That is really interesting. I am going to go over now and have them look at my blogs to see if they get the same results for all. I write all myself so they should be the same don’t you think.
    My question is why do they do this. What do they get out of telling me what kind of a writer I am.
    Anyway, thanks for turning me onto this.

    I am a mechanic for one blog and a visionary for the second blog on the same topic.
    I am a duty fulfiller for the third blog and a doer for the fourth blog which is the same topic as the third.
    I guess they are just pulling these classifications out of a hat but they are probably getting good traffic because I saw this site mentioned on another blog today.

    I am “The Mechanics” too … but after reading Andy’s comment above, I’m not too sure exactly what to make of it. Cool way to pass 5 minutes anyway … thanks.

    I, too am a mechanic for my main blog. I only tried that one, but I’ll bet my others will come out different-any bets?
    Anyway hopefully the results aren’t just random (I guess putting the same blog in again might disprove that? Or not.
    Regardless of all that I really like the site (wish I had thought of it!)
    I like the post and site, I think I’ll do a post on it too with a link back to where I heard about it of course.

    Is that the personality of the blog or blogger, I wonder what happens with multi writer blogs?

  7. steve@trade show guru December 24, 2008 at 5:56 pm #

    hi K-IntheHouse,
    Thanks for the cool link. I checked it out and I am an ESTP? doer (aka “active and playful type”). Awesome. I’m glad you’re the hard worker and I get to play. 🙂
    They should fix the typo on their homepage (self-percieved) but their website is fun! It reminds me of a site that RT wrote about that evaluates the “education level” required to read ones website. I think I scored a college level. Anyway, very nice. Thanks.

    Very Cool, I just went over and found out that I am a Duty Fulfiller, that really fits, for the blogger in me anyways 🙂

  9. Kevin@Eiffel Tower Facts December 25, 2008 at 11:00 pm #

    This is a pretty cool thing. Thanks for showing it. I will try to try it out.

  11. David @ Marketing Management Strategy December 26, 2008 at 4:38 pm #

    In my opinion, the best way to tell what kind of blog it is is to read it. 🙂

    Let’s not make the same mistake with blogs as we did with resumes, try to automate the art of human interpretation!

    Cool tool. My DTV converter blog got: ESTJ the guardians. What’s really funny is that the character traits it applies to the site actually apply to me as a person also.

    Not on typealyzer but re that e-letter
    Suggest you correct links to your wife’s page:
    “Indian Recipes Blog” URL is misspelled
    “Spicy Tasty” links to ShanKri-la Blog
    Have been enjoying your e-zine for a few months now.
    Keep up the good work

    Wow, what a fun tool 🙂 I own and run several blogs, often very different from each other so I got several completely different results… Still I really enjoyed, gave me a chance to take a break from work and not feel guilty about it 😉

  15. Zath@Hi Tech Gadgets December 31, 2008 at 1:44 pm #

    That’s quite a cool little tool – I wouldn’t use it to determine any real important stuff, but it does come back with saying my blog is ENTJ – The Executives.

    Most of what it says is fair, but then again a lot of it is perhaps like horoscopes and how people interpret what it says and applies it to themselves?

    My blog is an ISTP – “independent and problem-solving type”

    That’s pretty neat. I tried a few of my other sites, most of them, though slightly different, really seemed to all say the same thing (ie. logical and analytical, etc.)

    Would be interesting to see how they calculate that!

    I run some blogs,their content differs greatly from each other,so do the results. Games,fun,entertainments are to cater on the crowd, developing, self-improvement are for personal satisfaction.

    “ESTJ – The Guardians

    The organizing and efficient type. They are especially attuned to setting goals and managing available resources to get the job done. Once they have made up their mind on something, it can be quite difficult to convince otherwise. They listen to hard facts and can have a hard time accepting new or innovative ways of doing things. The Guardians are often happy working in highly structured work environments where everyone knows the rules of the job. They respect authority and are loyal team players.”

    Hmm, this isn’t really reflective of my personality traits. I am way different then this!

    This is cool! I tried it out on my Adventurous Wench blog and got “ESTP – The Doers. The active and playful type.” I’m not sure what all the other options were, but this write-up seems like a good fit to me!

    Thanks for sharing this!!

    Hey Deanna, glad you liked it! It was a fun one to try and I am waiting to see what kind of developments they make as the technology behind this promises lot more as they get to process more data. Thanks for sharing this on Twitter with your friends.

  22. Joel@Calphalon Saute Pan with Lid January 12, 2009 at 11:11 pm #

    Yes, it does make you wonder if there is anything valid, or if it is a random assignment of types. Interesting concept, though.

    I have studied this method before to analyze personality, it takes long time and lots of questionnaires.
    It is really interesting to analyze blogs by this method. I don’t know if it is accurate while the only thing I know is you must make sure the posts should come from same auther:)

  24. Damian@LBUG.tv viral videos January 27, 2009 at 6:46 pm #

    I’ve got three blogs on completely different subjects and I’m a guardian for all three.

    Guess they’ve got my number!

    Great tool.
