Online services that tell you things you already know seem to be becoming increasingly popular. Some analyze your browsing history to tell you if you are male or female while others analyze websites and tell you what kind of person you are.

The author's at Ghacks are Duty Fullfillers according to the analysis of Typealizer. Duty Fullfillers are the responsible and hardworking type that are careful about getting facts right and reluctant to take risks. Rarst on the other hand is a guardian, one of the organizing and efficient type who are attuned to setting goals and managing available resources to get the job done.

Most technology blogs seem to fall into those two categories, think Lifehacker (Duty Fullfillers) or Download Squad (Guardians). Typealizer works best with blogs but it can actually be used on many websites that are not blogs as well. Some websites cannot be processed at the moment including CNN but most English or Swedish websites and blogs should return a result. (Perez Hilton turned out to be detected as a Thai blog..)

What type is your favorite blog? Let us known in the comments.

Update: The Typealizer service is still available on the Internet. Ghacks' rating has changed to The Guardians recently, the description on the other hand is still listing our site's content as the organizing and efficient type.

The organizing 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.

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.

    I go this:
    The analysis indicates that the author of http://www.helpforlinux.blogspot.com is of the type:
    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 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.

    We just had to take the Myers-Briggs test at work. I trust those results far more than this analyzer website. The website only matched two of the 4 personality traits.

    Interesting one. :) I wonder how real it is and what part of it is horoscope-type guessing.

    It’s pretty correct at determining type of my blog, I do try to focus on practical things and facts there with methodical style of writing.
