Typealyzer Makes Blogging Even More Megalomaniacal

To hell with politics, wit, and intellectual discussion, blogging is primarily for the purpose of elevating your delusional visions of self-celebrity to compensate for shortcomings in your dreary "real life". That's why it's great to see a web tool like Typealyzer, which analyzes the "personality of your blog". LT Nixon Rants and The Obacalypse are both considered "The Mechanics", which is defined as:

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.
I prefer to write ill-informed commentary about current events, so I guess that's where I get that label. It's truly an honor, since "The Mechanix" was Metallica's little known precursor to "The Four Horsemen", which is one of the greatest metal songs of all time (listen below):

Conversely, smarter people's blogs like VetVoice and This Ain't Hell are characterized as "The Thinkers". As for my internet chums at The Sniper, they get slapped with "The Doers" personality type which entails:
The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.
I dunno, sounds a little "fruity" if you ask me. When do they start singing showtunes? Anyways, what blog type are youse guys and gals?

Good God! Check out how the Typalyzer defines the Huffington Post.

Maybe typing in the HP addy makes the whole thing malfunction...

Don't get me wrong...there are some very good 'bloggers and commenters' at HuffPost but they are most definitely outnumbered by the idiots.

Come to think of it...HP could use a few LT Nixon Rants...every once in a while...just suggestin'...

Yeeeaaahhh, I'm a Performer:

They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells

Apparently I use the "sense/feeling" crap part of my brain while writing..wages of a misspent education I guess. Jeez. Makes me sound like a giant girl.

The Sniper said...

I'm a doer? Then why the hell do I try to avoid doing anything productive by blogging as much as possible?

The Sniper said...

It also said:

"They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time."

So we're not gay... we're just ADHD. That sounds about right.

Fair enough, but you gotta admit that the "doer" animated chick on the Typealyzer wasn't bad looking.

I got this:

INTP - The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are especially attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.
