When people ask me how I started Blogthings, I’m not really sure how far back I should go. Should I tell them that I noticed people posting quizzes on sites like LiveJournal and that I thought it would be fun to create some? Should I tell them about how I started building web sites as a teenager, and I always knew I wanted to publish content on the internet for the whole world to enjoy? Or should I tell them about how I started taking personality quizzes during middle school in magazines, and how I was hooked once I took my first serious one?
Well, in any case, you pretty much got the whole story right there. I’ve loved making web sites for a long time, and I’ve loved quizzes for even longer. I originally first started taking quizzes in magazines as a tween / young teen. My absolute favorite magazine for quizzes was Sassy magazine, because their quizzes were fun and interesting. Things like “Are you a cynic?” Later on in high school, I was introduced to the MBTI, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and I was hooked.
I wrote What’s Your Personality Type? as my own personal homage to the MBTI. It’s not an official test, but I like to think it’s quite accurate. If you’re looking to do a comprehensive personality inventory today, then What’s Your Personality Type? is the perfect test for you. It’s quite long, but I have a feeling that you will really like your results.
Go ahead and take What’s Your Personality Type? What’s your result? Is it accurate? If you’ve taken the MBTI before, I’d like to know if it matches up to your score. I’m just curious in general to see how the blog readers stack up with this test. Are we all similar or different? I’m guessing most of us are introverts and intuitive… let’s find out 🙂
