what's your type?
I was alerted to this via Andrew Sullivan's blog, a website that claims the ability to identify a blog's "type." Naturally curious, I typed in my own URL, and here's what came up:

The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment and are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generelly prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like to seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Pretty spot-on for the most part, although I can't help but think that it's giving me entirely too much credit. A master of solving problems? Highly skilled? A risk taker who enjoys driving race cars or fighting fires? Pshaw...

Anyway, if you're reading this and have your own blog, then chances are more than good that I've already tested your URL out on the website, and from where I stand it seems fairly accurate. But please, do try it for yourself and then tell me all about it anyway. I promise I'll act surprised. ;)

It told me you were "The Thinkers." Is this thing bonkers? Or just now giving you credit for linking back to them. :)

Huh. You're right! I checked it before posting this, though. I guess today's post was somehow more "thoughtful" than the previous few have been. ;)

But from what I can tell, the Thinker and the Mechanic seem to be pretty similar, using almost identical parts of the brain. Looks like they're fairly similar types.

But I have to say, I do like being classified as a "thinker" a whole lot better than being told I'm a "mechanic."

I'm a Doer, evidently. Which makes sense, because the picture that goes with Doer looks exactly like me. Or something.

It tells me I'm a Performer.

But it also says that I'm entertaining and friendly, which is oh so very nice of them to say. I might argue that my blog is more entertaining than I am. (sad commentary.)

"Lives in the present moment." Yeah, that one I can agree with.

Thanks, Mrs. White. I had fun being typealyzed.
