Oh Happy Nonsense

Kevin Drum points me at the Typealyzer, which in a click looks into my blog's Heart of Dorkness and tells me that I am:

The analysis indicates that the author of is of the type:

ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment 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 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.

And I respond: Well, damn. If being department chair isn't about putting out fires, what is? I ran all the blogs that I link to on the left side of this page, and the results have a certain logic. Which do I match in type? Only one, and the comparison is flattering. Good company!

And as for the old buddy of whom it is said, " Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about," well, there you go.

There you really do go. Sometimes.
