Are you familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or the Jungian psychological types on which this personality inventory is based? I took the MBTI back in the mid-80s, and I've been looking for my results — with no luck, I'm afraid.

I'm pretty certain my outcome was INTP. But I recall being right on the borderline of one axis — probably P-J, but maybe S-N. Myers-Briggs theory, however, says you clearly prefer one or the other, and a borderline result represents an ambiguous score, not ambiguity on your part. IIRC, the counselor who administered and interpreted my MBTI (a co-worker who knew me) was quite certain I was really an INTP (if I remember that correctly).

So why did I search for my results and bring this up? Well, someone recently pointed me to an interesting web site called Typealyzer. You enter a blog URL, and they scan the site and determine the type of the blogger. According to Typealyzer, Combs Spouts Off is an ISTP blog. 

Interesting stuff. I went through a bunch of the non-group blogs (for obvious reasons) in my blogroll, and I found several ISTPs and even more INTPs and INTJs. There were only a couple of Fs and almost no E-anythings.

A lot of bloggers are introverted thinkers — who would have guessed? 🙂

Try plugging in a few of your favorites.
