Entering the url of a blog and clicking “Typealyze” generates a quick analysis of the blog author’s word choice and usage, resulting in the author’s Myers-Briggs [personality] Type Indicator.
After quite a bit of time spent with a Jungian analyst years ago, a quick input of my url here at expandandexpound has confirmed what the therapist concluded a decade ago – I am definitely an INTP = The Thinker (or rather…the OVER-thinker
Too “complex” for my own good, I have trouble listening to or thinking about anything without over-analyzing it to death. Maybe this is why Chad, my husband, consistently asks me to “just listen before you start rationalizing every word out of my mouth”. Maybe this is why I long to write fiction, but have difficulty marrying my lust for creative challenges to the actual task – I can’t get started cause I can’t quit thinking about how to start.
