Did you ever take that Kiersey temperament sorter?  I found this nifty Typealyzer via a new blog I think is really cool, In the Meantime.

The Typealyzer takes your blog's URL and gives it a personality according to Kiersey's test.  If you haven't done the test, or haven't in a while, go take it.  Then see if your blog's personality matches yours.

As for me, I am a Healer (Idealist), or INFP.  According to Kiersey, "Healers
present a calm and serene face to the world, and can seem shy, even
distant around others. But inside they're anything but serene, having a
capacity for personal caring rarely found in the other types. Healers
care deeply about the inner life of a few special persons, or about a
favorite cause in the world at large. And their great passion is to
heal the conflicts that trouble individuals, or that divide groups, and
thus to bring wholeness, or health, to themselves, their loved ones,
and their community."

My blog, on the other hand, according to Typealyzer, is ESFP, a Performer (Artisan), which means it's much more outgoing than I am personally.  "The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to
pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft
fabrics, 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.

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."

I suppose that makes sense.  I try to make it visually appealing, and if blogging every day is "risk of exhausting itself," well, I'm almost there lately :)  And my blog and I share the latter half of the four sorting factors.

What's yours?


My Etsy Valentine: Hearts, Chocolates and Flowers #7
A daily feature till Valentine's Day

Zombie Valentine's Day Card by Buster McGee

We've done chocolates, jewelry, I guess we're missing flowers.  But we definitely needed a Valentine's Day card.  And this is the BEST Valentine's Day card I've EVER EVER seen.  It's certainly not the only cool card in this shop, though!  Go check it out.  Pick up a "Zombie Children Need Love Too" Valentine for all the loves in your life.  Hates too... one says "I hate your guts but your brains ain't bad." 

Hey Valentine's Day doesn't have to be mushy, and you can tell Hallmark's sappy poetry to kiss your butt!

Haha, the typealyzer listed my blog as ESFP too, whereas I'm more accurately an INTJ. Maybe the algorithm skews the results that way if you have a craft blog? I'm not sure how it works, but I'm assuming it looks for key words to define each category, and having a blog centred on visual art probably heavily biases it towards ESFP.
