Helene Blowers, over at LibraryBytes, wrote a post including links to several tools that analyze blogs. I couldn’t resist playing along – and found out some fascinating things about what my blog says about me.
The first tool is Typealyzer, which analyzes one’s writing to make a personality determination. My blog was labeled as INTP – The Thinkers. The website’s description of this label is as follows:
The logical and analytical type. They are especialy 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.
This INTP result isn’t much of a surprise. I am definitely a thinker type – and I like to use my blog as a place to work through my thoughts about library-related subjects. I’m not sure I’m so keen on the arrogant, impatient and insensitive thing though – that isn’t a message that I would like to send to the world.
The second tool is GenderAnalyzer, a tool which tries to determine if a blog’s writer is male or female. The site determined that my site was gender neutral with a slight preference for a male. These results fascinate me. I am female, but have been told that I often think like a man. I guess I might tend to write like one too?????
The third tool is the Blog Readability Test. This site determines the reading level of one’s blog. I have done this one before, and the results have stayed the same – High School Reading Level. I’m good with that.
The last tool is the site that determines How Much is Your Blog Worth. This doesn’t mean much too me because my blog is worth much more to me than to anyone else. Also, I’m not sure what being worth $19,194.36 means. Actually, I realize one has to compare it to the worth of other blogs. Chances are I am not going to do that. However, if someone offered my $19,000 for this blog, I might just take it. :)
Now, back to my regularly scheduled Monday!
