blog personality type

According to Typealyzer, a Swedish website that purports to analyze the Myers-Briggs personality type of a blog's author, we collectively add up to INTJ (Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging), or as the site describes us, "Scientists":

The long-range thinking and individualistic type. They are especially good at looking at almost anything and figuring out a way of improving it - often with a highly creative and imaginative touch. They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be pshysically [sic] hesitant to try new things.

The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity. Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communcating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use conrete examples. Since they are extremly good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.

I tried classifying my boating blog with Typealyzer, too, but the site thought my blog was written in Thai (??!!). Yeah, that's me, the not-so-well-known-language type.

The C-M law library blog is also a Scientist. The gender analyzer - http://www.genderanalyzer.com/ -said our blog was written by a female. Our blog has multiple authors, and most of our posts were written by females, so it was right.

Thanks for the interesting post.
