Today, I discovered a nifty little tool that analyzes your personality traits based on text you’ve submitted to the internet. You can use anything from facebook posts to tweets to even your blog postings. I ran a few of my own blog posts through it and this is what it had to say about me & my blog:
You are confident.
You are calm under pressure: you handle unexpected events calmly and effectively. You are assertive: you tend to speak up and take charge of situations, and you are comfortable leading groups. And you are unstructured: you do not make a lot of time for organization in your daily life.
Your choices are driven by a desire for efficiency.
You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider helping others to guide a large part of what you do: you think it is important to take care of the people around you.
Which, in my opinion is spot on!
I also ran Taylor Swift’s Tweets through it and it had this to say:
You are social, confident and rational.
You are appreciative of art: you enjoy beauty and seek out creative experiences. You are altruistic: you feel fulfilled when helping others, and will go out of your way to do so. And you are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them.
Your choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
You consider both taking pleasure in life and independence to guide a large part of what you do. You are highly motivated to enjoy life to its fullest. And you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
Totally cool tool. This is more fun than a magic 8 ball!
Personality insights created by IBM Watson and utilizes linguistic analytics to determine an extensive idea of social and cognitive characteristics based on the text data that someone may generate through blogs, tweets, forum posts and more!
& I think it’s quite interesting here is what it has to say about all 13,000 words of 50 Shades of Grey:
You are social, somewhat verbose and easily rattled.
You are laid-back: you appreciate a relaxed pace in life. You are proud: you hold yourself in high regard, satisfied with who you are. And you are cautious of others: you are wary of other people’s intentions and do not trust easily.
You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of well-being.
You consider helping others to guide a large part of what you do: you think it is important to take care of the people around you. You are relatively unconcerned with achieving success: you make decisions with little regard for how they show off your talents.
- Go ahead, analyze yourself… I challenge you!
