I’ve been playing around with a website called Typealyzer this morning for fun as I have no trades on or to be done.  Basically, the software analyzes a website and then decides on the “personality” of the writing of the website.  So, for fun, I’d run all my favorite trading blogs through them to see where everyone comes out.  Shockingly, I have been paired with the great Rob Hanna at Quantifiable Edges, a point of shame for him I am sure. I felt sure I would be classified as IAMLAZY.  ESTJ – “The Guardian” is the most common, and the most common thread is that everyone is about hard work.  HeadlineCharts I think is mislabeled as ENTJ – the writer doesn’t seem overly assertive, but hey, what do I know.

ISTJ – The Duty Fulfillers

Blog(s): Skill Analytics, Quantifiable Edges

The responsible and hardworking type. They are especially attuned to the details of life and are careful about getting the facts right. Conservative by nature they are often reluctant to take any risks whatsoever.

The Duty Fulfillers are happy to be let alone and to be able to work int heir own pace. They know what they have to do and how to do it.

ENTJ – The Executives

Blog(s): Headlinecharts

The direct and assertive type. They are especially attuned to the big picture and how to get things done. They are talented strategic planners, but might come off as insensitive to others needs and appear arrogant. They like to be where the action is and like making bold and sweeping changes in complex situations.

The Executives are happy when their work let them learn and improve themselves and how things work around them. Not beeing very shy about expressing their ideas and often very outgoing they often make excellent public speakers.

ISTP – The Mechanics

Blog(s): Bill aka NoDooDahs

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 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 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.

INTJ – The Scientists

Blog(s): TraderFeed, Kirzner Fervor

The long-range thinking and individualistic type. They are especially good at looking at almost anything and figuring out a way of improving it – often with a highly creative and imaginative touch. They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be pshysically hesitant to try new things.

The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity. Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communcating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use conrete examples. Since they are extremly good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.

ESTJ – The Guardians

Blog(s): Woodshedder, InVivo Analytics, MarketSci, Vix and More, WorldBeta, The Big Picture

The organizing and efficient type. They are especially attuned to setting goals and managing available resources to get the job done. Once they´ve 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.

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.

ESTP – The Doers

Blog(s): The Trading Digest, Macro Man

The active and play-ful 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.

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.
