I’m Now a Mechanic…Sort of

I was reading a post from Vicki Davis in my feed reader tonight when I came across this post that “analyzes” me based on my writing in my blog. So I figured I would give it a shot. I would say that it is a fairly accurate read of my personality. Those who know me would agree with most of it. Those who will be getting to know me in my new leadership endeavors with TCEA will probably recognize much of it as well in the near future. Since this is looking at writing I have done over a variety of topics through the past year and a half, I think it had a decent chance of gathering accurate data.

Agree or not, here I am according to Typealyzer:

ISTP – 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 generally 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.


This show what parts of the brain that were dominant during writing:

This would be great to do this same analysis on some of our students’ self-directed writing and then on writing we require them to do (for test prep more than likely).
