eyeDance at the Shrink


I ran eyeDance through a web tool - Typealizer - that is supposed to analyze my writing and reveal what it says about me. Apparently it is based on the Myers-Briggs personality profile instrument, though there is no real background info available. Here is what it had to say about eyeDance (me):

ESTP - The Doers
The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

Those of you who know me will see the accuracy of that analysis. My past experience with Myers-Briggs showed me to be, at first, about 18 years ago, an ENTJ, and more recently, about 2.5 years ago, an ENTP. So perhaps this latest stint as an ESTP is simply part of an ongoing shift as I age, or perhaps it is situational as relates to this blog with its particular emphasis on photography. I guess that time will tell. Lucille Ball, with whom I share my birth date, was also an ESTP. So are Madonna, Eddie Murphy, and Bruce Willis.

The portions of my brain most engaged while I was writing are, in decending order:

- - logic
- - mathmatics
- - order
- - habit
- - details
- - spirituality
- - rhythm
- - harmony
- - imagination
- - symbols

  1. Based upon my blog, the Typealyzer says I'm an artsy ISFP. Which seems uncharacteristic, as I'm the farthest thing from artsy. I think I'll have to take the test and see what the full on shrinking does for me. Part of the explanation fits me though, can YOU identify which parts those are??? hehee

    The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people need. They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders. They tend to follow the path of least resistance and have to look out not to be taken advantage of.

    They often prefer working quietly, behind the scene as a part of a team. They tend to value their friends and family above what they do for a living.
