Your blog personality revealed

Just heard of a text analyser, Typealyzer, which attempts to describe your personality based on the text in your blog. Nonsense but fun.

According to Typealyzer, the Waltham Forest blogger is the "active and playful type ... they might be very impulsive... they might have a problem with sitting still". Our correspondent in the Netherlands, David Hembrow, is the "independent and problem-solving type... they enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters".

While I, according to Typealyzer, am a rather tipsy woman with boots, sipping champagne at a bar: "the entertaining and friendly type... especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells... qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions". Well, very good about not being in a management position.


  1. Wow. That's _exactly_ like me :-) Is there nothing that computers can't do ?

  2. I also enjoy extreme sports, like cycling in outer London.

  3. Shame it's so no-better-than-chance, isn't it? Maybe I'll have to go back to horoscopes. I've tried out lots though - Virgo, Gemini, Capricorn - and the best they could come up with was 'you were born around this time of year', which was only right one-twelfth of the time.
