The Psychology of Posting

I've realized something about myself through blogging. When I get stressed and overwhelmed, I try to have fun. Well, first there may be some serious pajama time with chocolate chip cookie dough eating, but I try not to let that last too long.

I also usually unload on my my mom and then she makes me feel better. I try not to complain to my friends or rant on my blog. At least too much. Instead, I look at my flickr favorites and put up blog games!

Remember the Blog My Blog game? It's still going strong! That makes me smile whenever I see it. There are some pretty interesting questions being asked.

So with all this having been said. Well, written actually, I found another fun blog game that I've been sitting on for a bit. There's a cool website called Typealyzer. You put in your blog url and it "tells" you your personality type based on your blog posts.

I did it for my blog and it said that my type is ESTP - The Doers. Here is a partial description of an ESTP type.

"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. "

I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it's a nice distraction. I guess I am sort of playful. But on another note entirely, I can attest to the truth of this article describing the phone lines being overwhelmed at unemployment offices. It's very difficult to get through.

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.

I would say that this is pretty acurate, not completely. Nonetheless, fun!!

Have a Merry Chrismas, Anali!!
