You are What You Write

I was amused, when I found the website www.typealyzer.com – you have to type in your blog URL and then the typealyzer will tell you who you are – like a modern SPHINX. About me the digital Sphinx wrote: “The author of flickrcomments is of the type ISTP = The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment and are highly skilled at seeing and fixing what needs to be fixed, making them ideally suited for engineering…” etc. then the Sphinx compared me with “Donald Rumsfeld, Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, Scarlett Johansson, Kyudo Nakagawa, Bruce Lee, Snoop Dogg, Ellen Page, Erwin Rommel, James Bond and Boba Fett…” My comment: NO! below: me with no words, guitar talking only:

wood & steel
And – so I was inspired again to breed over stereotypes:

1 – left: where the world thinks I live
the 7 dwarves' cottage+Boulevard Window
… and where I really live (photo on the right side, Berlin boulevard)
~
2 – left: how the world says I dress (photo by Giancarlo Rado)
Die Deutschen+wood & steel
… and how I really dress (photo on the right side, playing Dobro)
~
3 – left: what they think I’m doing
a modern Sisyphus+Epicurus
… and what I really do (photo on the right side, drinking tea)

  1. “ESFP” in contrast to yours, mine is surprisingly accurate. How did they do that so fast?

  2. …I wonder HOW they do that!!!
    Even funnier is the fact that they add fictional characters too!
    I prefer your reality btw!

  7. This is fun, and interesting, since it is flattering I loved it! Then I tried it on a couple of blogs that I read regularly, just to see what it has to say, since the comments are typically positive. thanks for sharing this.

    I came out ESFP and read the description, only 50% true. I know I was an ESFJ the last time I took the test πŸ˜‰ about 8 years ago. I was an ISFJ about 5 years before that. Thanks for this, I had fun! πŸ™‚

  12. This was a delightful post….I visited the type analyser and came up as a mechanic too!! Not really how I see myself…so then I typed in a few other blogs I follow and every one of them came back as mechanics!! Even stranger as they are a mix of poets, artists, food bloggers and therapists πŸ™‚

  13. Lol, couldn’t help myself with this one. Although it recognized me as an ESFP, (which I was up until my mid twenties) I’d consider myself to be MUCH more introverted. Something fun for a Sunday morning:D

  14. I fall in love for the first visit to your blog. Two things that not make me think twice to follow you:
    1. The crisp, sharp, and beautiful images in your blog
    2. The lovely guitars in your posting

    Sir, may I know what camera and lenses you use to take all of those stunning images? I may learn something from someone guru like you.

    Thank you for nice comments in my blog, your ping back, and the most important thing: introducing your blog to me.

  15. I’ve never been much tempted to ask others what sort of a man I am… I figured that was one of the few things I had to find out for myself… especially if they read it in the stars, or figure it out by way of my birth date… as for stereotypes… they can be misleading… but sometimes they are connected to a valid impression made by a group of people. For anyone who resents the stereotype of their countrymen, I suggest that they ask themselves first, am I really typical of the folks who live around me? I once read a very interesting article on how cartoonists work, and that the way we judge and remember others is very similar to their work. I love listening to your music, and have a very warm spot for John Hurt.

  16. Coming up ESFP all over – and here also only about 50% true as I don’t “avoid conflicts and rarely (most often usually) initiate confrontation” – not an “excellent team player”: in fact, I wanted to have a t-shirt made that said “does not play well with others” at one point… Myers Briggs had given me a completely different result! Here are a few fun links when you have nothing better to do:
    http://www.humanmetrics.com/#Jung, Myers–Briggs (free site, but not as accurate as the actual Myers–Briggs test – but can give you an idea of what your type is) and http://www.discoveryourpersonality.com/Strong.html

    • hi Madhu,
      at first I think there are too many male characters … – maybe they should construct a female character pool too!
      but secondly, on the other hand, the title “you are what you you write” means: a writer’s identity is never fixed, he develops new horizons weekly – that’s the great challenge of blogging: to create, to expand one’s own identity … – you will be, what you will write tomorrow

  30. Wow, how very interesting and fascinating. They analyze so FAST! I have two different results for my two blogs, which in a way makes sense to me. I am actually transitioning from an old way of life into a new way of life.
