I actually have two journals here

So another blog type analysis toy is going around, like it does, and I ran it against my LJ, and got:

INTP - The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. 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.

...which wasn't really too surprising, but then I realised that my front page had an unusually high concentration - yes, even for me - of economics, so I wondered what'd happen if I took out economics via the magic of tags, and if you take away econ and/or politics, everything else is:

ESFP - The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don't like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

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.

Pretty much everything else brings up that analysis. Filtering into subsets, I expected it when posting about music and photography, and wasn't too surprised about Japan and travel, but posting about home repair? Performer. Posting about Anna's medical stuff? Still Performer. In fact, the only cleanly isolatable subslices of any note that got anything else were postings about the murknet and postings under the "rampaging idocy" tag,* and those are kind of weird ones anyway.

So I apparently have two markedly different styled journals here, interleaved together. It's not a matter of whether I like the topic, either; I hate the culture war/political work, but I enjoy writing about the economics. Similarly, I obviously love the music and like the photography and similar topics, but hate the house-remodelling and really hate the medical stuff a lot. But those are all still Performer. So there's that for you. Or me. Or somebody.

*: Tag "murknet": "ESTP-The Doers: The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus..."). Tag "rampaging idocy": "ISFP - The Artists: The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people need. They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders." The not-well-isolating tag "writings" gets me "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 interpersonal conflicts" but if you look at it, those are mostly econ and politics (triggering Thinker) alloyed by a few writings on non-econ/politics posts (triggering Performer) and the result is a hybrid of two otherwise well-defined/well-isolated oh nobody's reading this far down anyway.
