The Personality Type of a Blog

Thursday, November 20, AD 2008

Per Typealyzer, The American Catholic blog has the personality type of an INTP according to the Myer’s Briggs indicator. Here is the description:

The logical and analytical type. They are especially 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.

I suspect that most (tolerable) writing about culture, religion, and politics contains the attributes Typealyzer assigns to INTP’s. Nevertheless, as a proud INFP, I pledge to feel more and think less in all of my posts going forward (kindly refrain from telling me when I’m succeeding).

For those unfamiliar with Myer’s Briggs type indicator, here is the Wikipedia description.
