Sadly, my blog is a wanton floozy

Meyers-Briggs testing has made its way into the blogosphere. Try it out here.

However, a warning: the Ironic Catholic blog came out as...

The analysis indicates that the author of http://ironiccatholic.blogspot.com is of the type:
ESFP - The Performers

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.
Well, OK. First, the image communicates straight off that my blog is a wanton floozy. And why is that drink bubbling? Are we talking alcohol mixed with alka seltzer, love potion, or what?

But secondly, I've taken the Meyers-Briggs recently, and I came out as an INTJ. That's right, my personality is the EXACT opposite of my blog.

The mind boggles.

But have fun. You know you want to check out your blog's personality type. Go...don't mind my existential crisis here....

p.s. Praying at NaPraGoMo may make me feel better.
Or these Meyers-Briggs prayers (a joke) may help.

Interesting. I suppose it measures the part of yourself you let out online, You have said this blog is an exercise in enjoying life more.

My blog was read as INTP, but I'm INFJ. I guess I'm not so very emotional online as in real life.

I came out the same as you IC on both my blogs. Far too flippant obviously. Need to take lessons in writing serious prose in my spare time.

My blog came out as an ESTP - The Doers, but I am an INFP. I know that in my blog I will say what no one around me will listen to, or wants to hear. It's the main reason I started blogging in the first place. haha

Apparently, my blog is also a wanton floozy. That is probably because I am so straight laced and sober in my real life.....teehee

Maybe the blog is your alter ego...

Hmmm. Today's word verification is "recather"
Would that be to read My Antonia over again?

Im the Mechanics and considering how the weekend went, I thought it was pretty funny.
Although I do have a tendency to have a heavy foot at times and people have asked me if I was trying to qualify for the races!

My blog came out just like my personal MBTI score: INTP.

Exact opposite, aye? Well that makes perfect sense if you use your blog as an escape and/or venting of your shadow side, to get Jungian. Just keep in mind that St. Francis was ESFJ also, so there is redemption for all. Grin.

angelmeg said...

Don't you know anything about Meyers-Briggs? Your blog is showing your shadow side which is the exact opposite of the score you test for your own personality.

Which makes sense since you use a pseudonym on the site and are trying to be entertaining, as opposed to being the Professor type that an INTJ would be.

I took a workshop in this stuff for my Spiritual Formation component of my Masters, never in my life thought it would come in handy.

Well....I'm not surprised. After all, you admitted on one of my blog posts that your thesis was about trashy sex with aliens and you just wanted to clear that up.


And Kiwi...here you are! I haven't seen you in AGES! Hope you are welll (and see this comment...lol)

I'm an INFJ (The Confidant - rarest of the 16 types), but my blog comes up as ISTP.

If you're going to be a wanton floozy, then at least be an honest and true wanton floozy. Christ himself never turned a decent floozy away, probably gave any passing floozy a good word to bring her beyond mere floozydom and to unabashed devoution to the Bridegroom.
I speak as not even a proper wanton floozy, just a jealous Protestant.
