Jung put to good use

There is a something about self-testing on the Internet that makes even very serious people give them time and space on their blogs. The latest belongs to this website which offers an X-ray diagnosis of one's personality type or gender, by the simple act of reading one's blog name.

So I entered my http:// and from the Typealyzer got this highly gratifying analysis of the blogmaster under review (That's moi):

INTP - The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are especialy 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.

Quite Bingo! What an insightful tool, such accuracy, such delicacy of nuance... how does it do it?

So I went on to the next test, The Gender analyzer, which claims that, by using "Artificial Intelligence" it can "determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman".

The result: "We think is written by a man (77%)."

Apparently I'm much more male than Normblog or Mick H.
