There is a fun little tool we wanted you to know about heroically named “The Typealyzer.” Essentially, the Typealyzer allows you to enter a web page’s URL address and determine (or approximate) the personality type of the writer. It does so by analyzing things like word use, writing style, and other factors. Surprisingly, I entered four of my type profiles (INTJ, INFJ, INTP, INFP) and it correctly typed me as an INTP on all of them (good to know I’m at least somewhat consistent in my writing)! It did, however, mistype both of our INFJ contributors on this site as INTJs. So go ahead and give The Typealzyer a try and see what you think.
If you don’t have a web page and would like to Typealzye some of your writing, you can still do so, but it will require a bit more effort, as you will need to separately paste it into an analyzer for each of the four dichotomies:
E-I Typealyzer (the author titles this “Attitude”)
S-N Typealyzer (the author titles this the “Perceiving Function”)
T-F Typealyzer (the author titles this the “Judging Function”)
J-P Typealyzer (the author titles this “Lifestyle”)
Here’s a similar tool for gender:
