Based on Kevin’s experiment from a few days ago, I decided to try out the personality analyzer. I started with a section of the first chapter of my dissertation and got the following:
You are inner-directed, skeptical and can be perceived as insensitive.
You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. You are calm under pressure: you handle unexpected events calmly and effectively. And you are calm-seeking: you prefer activities that are quiet, calm, and safe.
You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of organization.
You are relatively unconcerned with taking pleasure in life: you prefer activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment. You consider achieving success to guide a large part of what you do: you seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.
To be as accurate as possible, I did the same with a later section, and I got this:
You are shrewd, skeptical and tranquil.
You are adventurous: you are eager to experience new things. You are imaginative: you have a wild imagination. And you are independent: you have a strong desire to have time to yourself.
You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of prestige.
You are relatively unconcerned with both tradition and taking pleasure in life. You care more about making your own path than following what others have done. And you prefer activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
I think these are absolutely fair points to make: shrewd, skeptical, inner-directed, and tranquil fits me to a tee most days.
The later section got me these results on the tone analyzer:
Because of the nature of my dissertation (which involves military history), I get a pretty angry score.
I had fun testing both of them, and as Kevin noted, I can’t gripe too much about the results.
