Prepare to Be Typealzyed!

You have got to try this!

I am willing to bet that everyone has looked up their astrological profile. What’s your sign? See? Do you think it sums up your personality?

Our preconceived idea of who we are may differ from how we project ourselves in society.

I found the coolest site on the internet. Really! Anyone who has a blog can type in their URL and its author’s personality type will be analyzed or “Typealyzed.” It is based on word choice and repetition.

I thought, “What the heck. It’s a lot easier than answering a bunch of questions.” I entered the URL of my blog and let it rip! I was so curious to see what it said about my Wild Riding personality type. My hands perspired as my mind raced. I hoped it was upbeat, but wondered if I could be giving off some kind of weird vibe….

Then this picture popped up and I laughed and kept on laughing until I read the analysis.

ESFP – The PerformersESFP

The author of http://susielindau.com 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. 

A new friend

I picked up this 5-6 foot snake and then ran into the house to get my camera.

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.

ESFP Brain Chart

Do you see why I was amused? I was amazed at its accuracy. I am always up for something new and do tend to exhaust myself. I’ve also experienced many of the careers on the list in some way, shape or form.

That is quite a list of celebrities with the same personality type, although I can relate to Chewbacca more than Justin Bieber!

When I disagreed with the Typealyzer’s assessment of being present centered, my husband Danny asked, “Why do you think I buy you a leather planner every year?” That shocked me.

I realized that I tend to wait until the last-minute before making plans. Thanks Typealyzer!

I found the creator of the program, Mattias Ostmar, through Twitter and then we continued our discussion via email. I love how the social network reduces the size of the world. He lives thousands of miles away in Sweden.

Mattias:

“Yes, I invented the Typealyzer. It consists of two parts, lots of text examples of different psychological styles which I’ve collected and refined and a text classification engine built by my friend Jon Kågström. He also created the design for the web page.

The original purpose was to see if it was possible to find any personality patterns by using such naïve techniques. It was for my own fun, basically, I had quit my job to take a creative break in life and just do fun stuff of which this prototype was one. I originally considered this whole project to be amateur research and I still do. We´ve actually added the possibility for people to state their personality type according to traditional survey-tests so we can compare the results.

I´ve spent the last three years working on different psychological traits such as values and haven´t really given that much love and attention to Myers-Briggs, however I still personally feel that it is a very useful way of exploring one’s talents and pit-falls in social circumstances. 

And most of all I believe that observing our behavior such as how we use language, is a much better way of understanding ourselves and others in comparison to surveys where most people aren´t aware of themselves or sometimes even lie based on what they WOULD like to be. ;-)”

Mattias created this program for fun! Jeez. I watch movies and read blog posts for fun. 

I would guess that we are all mistaken about some aspect of our personality. The Typealyzer is a great tool for understanding how others may perceive us.

      I would really like to study more about personality types. I have never taken any test, but think that it pretty much nailed me. I write like I talk so maybe that is why it was so accurate. I would think that your poetry would be harder to analyze.
      The other thing that Mattias -the inventor- said was that most people have a hard time answering the questions. It looks like it got 3 traits consistently between your two blogs!

There’s no question I’m pushing myself out of my shell, lightening up, going outside more and having more fun, so it’s cool to see that reflected in these results. I submitted my old results but I hope they don’t think their program is wrong because of the variation.

    The other day, I Stumbled Upon a graphic of a brain where the left side looked like a brain and the right side was a brain with big splashes of color. I showed it to my youngest daughter who said, “I want my brain to be all on the right side.” I told her that she needed the left side too. Otherwise, her answer to the question: “How old are you?” would probably be, “Blue.”

      Maybe Mattias can weigh in on the idea of guest bloggers. I would bet they are blended voices along with your own.
      I would think you would be the same as mine. You could try entering in one post instead of your whole blog and see what if comes up with… :)

        Duh! Why didn’t I think of that?

        That’s why we pay you the big bucks to host this blog, Susie.

        I think all but the first one mirror my M-B profile. After I commented, I thought.

        [Yes. That could be the whole point.]

        But, it’s not. I cherish alone AND people time. Results on E v I could reflect that mix on any given day.

        Very cool program. It would be tres fun to have analysis for POV chapters to make sure unique characters have unique voices.

            I figured that out! It’s that amazing personality coming through!
            Love Mattias’s program! It gives a lot of food for thought.
            I had thought of the POV thing too. I am sure that is what is wrong with a lot of books that I read. The word choice and sentence structure must all be too similar.. :)
            Thanks for checking back Gloria!

    LOL! Typealzyed? I have to try it and see what the results are. Hey, Chewbacca and Lady Gaga are not bad ESFJ’s to be related to. :-)

  55. Fellow ESFP here. The typealyzer pegged my post completely differently though which was interesting. Great post!

  56. There’s one thing I´m really interested in investigating with the Typealyzer – it seems like people reading the same type of blogs often mirror the profile, at least with some of the letters in the profile. It would be fun if you would post your results here for comparison. On my blog I usually get INTP, INTJ or sometimes when I blog announcements, I get ISTJ. You?

    Same type here. I went to the site to read what all the other types were…did you get a diagram? I wonder if the diagrams are the same for same personality types. Looking at that…Dang-it…I always knew I wasn’t a ‘thinker’ but to see my brain type on a diagram. Order, habit, details, practical…yup those are all me. The “sensing” type. I don’t even have a small part of the triangle- not even the tip in the thinking zone. My husband would probably agree. :) hahahah

      I love it Sandy! I tried to copy and paste the diagram, but it wouldn’t allow me. Isn’t it interesting to think that the words we choose are so defining?
      I would be interested in what family members say about those that don’t agree with the personality types the Typealyzer gives them.
      Thanks for coming by and trying it out!

    Fascinating, Susie! It said I’m a doer and pretty much entirely left-brained, for which I would somewhat disagree – but it’s a really interesting idea! And very fun!

        Hi Cathy, interesting to read your blog! From a quick look at it I believe that you use it to document concrete things and experiences that inspires you. Would you agree on that? It would not suprise me if you are aligning both inner (abstract) inspiration with concrete experiences and things, as you come through to me as a person that believes in a holistic approach combining body, mind and soul (that makes two of us).

    Super fun post. I got the same as you and I’d say it’s pretty accurate with exception to the avoiding confrontation. I have no problem with confrontation! ;)

  62. Okay I typed in todays blog and it said I was a ‘mechanic’ which I am not. But today’s blog was a video and the January blues. I tried again with one of my real blogs and that my friend is me to a ‘t’ This was fun!!

    http://social.everythingzoomer.com/profiles/blogs/a-circular-heavenly-tale-at-the-county-fair 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.
