Ok, so upon my wanderings on the web, I found a really simple, nothing-to-it website called the Typealzer. It’s quite, well, it’s very easy to use. You pop the web address of your, or your favourite, blog and the site analyses the personality of the blog. Not the writer, the blog itself. Because we all know bloggers only tend talk about the good things in their life with perfectly curated poses and flatlays of various props/legs on a bed with a laptop and coffee/laughing at salad.
So, I decided to analyse my blog, and a few other must-reads. Definitely give it a go yourself to see what it comes out as. Most lifestyle bloggers seemed to be the playful and entertaining types, while the nurse bloggers I follow are a bit more organised.
It’s all a bit of fun as we wind down for 2016.
The playful bloggers
The author of http://sixoutoften.co.uk is of the type ESTP.
The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities. They are active people who want to solve problems rather than simply discuss them.
ESTPs are the most adept among the types at influencing other people. Promoting is the art of manoeuvring others to one’s position. Concrete in speech and utilitarian in action, they are smooth operators. The ESTP knows everyone who matters and everything there is to do because they are very resourceful, always knowing where the fun and action is.
They like to indulge themselves in the finer things in life and to bring other people with them. Their goal in life is to sell themselves and their ideas to others. Dramatic and debonair, they are gifted at earning others’ confidence.
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

The entertaining bloggers
The author of http://www.thiscitylife.co.uk is of the type ESFP.
The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft beautiful textiles, bright colours and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. ESFPs love being around people and having new experiences. Living in the here-and-now, they often do not think about long-term effects or the consequences of their actions.
ESFPs live in the moment, experiencing life to the fullest. They enjoy people, as well as material comforts. Rarely allowing conventions to interfere with their lives, they find creative ways to meet human needs. Active types, they find pleasure in new experiences.
The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions. ESFPs are excellent team players, focused on completing the task at hand with maximum fun and minimum discord.

The social, energetic bloggers
The author of http://asystoleisstable.blogspot.com/ is of the type ESFJ.
The social, warm, enthusiastic, energetic, structured and opinionated type. They are especially attuned to the feelings of themselves and others. They tend to be very aware of the values of their peer-group and tend to see things as either right or wrong, good or bad. They tend to be traditional and value their friends and family the most. People love to be around ESFJs and they are extremely good on bringing out the best of others.
They take pleasure in other people’s happiness. They give generously, but expect appreciation in return. Sensitive to the physical needs of others, they respond by offering practical care. As expert people readers, ESFJs often adapt their manners to meet the expectations of others. However, they may have difficulty recognizing the shortcomings of loved ones.
The Socializers are down-to-earth, practical people and very keen on making sure everyone is alright. This quality makes them enjoy social work places. Since they enjoy being and keeping things neat and tidy, they often also enjoy working in such environments.
The organised bloggers
The author of http://nursebuff.com is of the type ESTJ.
The organising and efficient type. They are especially attuned to setting goals and managing available resources to get the job done. Once they have made up their mind on something, it can be quite difficult to convince otherwise. They listen to hard facts and can have a hard time accepting new or innovative ways of doing things.
ESTJs are people who like to lead, they have a clear vision of what has to be done. They are self confident and may seem a bit aggressive. ESTJs are extremely honest and straight forward
The Guardians are often happy working in highly structured work environments where everyone knows the rules of the job. They respect authority and are loyal team players.
The independent bloggers
The author of http://florencenursingtales.blogspot.com/ is of the type ISTP.
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment and are highly skilled at seeing and fixing what needs to be fixed, making them ideally suited for engineering. 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 seek out fun and action both in their work and personal life.
ISTPs endure reasonable impositions without complaint — but if their “territory” is encroached upon, eroded, or violated, their quiet, easy-going nature is quickly abandoned in favor of stubborn and staunch defense of what they view as rightfully theirs.
