Typealyzer – identify your blog’s personality type

Filed under: Uncategorized — writebrainit @ 12:56 pm

Okay, this is very interesting – this website, typealyzer, can supposedly do a kind of Myers-Briggs assessment of your blog. This is what it said about my blog. The thing that I find so funny about it – I think it is pretty close to what my personality type is. I am really amused by this. Although I think I am actually an ENFP (and the part about not being assertive or avoiding conflict – so not me).

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.

Christmas Writing Prompt

Filed under: Uncategorized — writebrainit @ 2:19 pm

While I was thinking of all my favorites – I began to focus on one of my favorite Christmas stories – “Yes, Virginia There Is A Santa Claus” and I wondered, if I were to take the opportunity to write Santa in this day and age – what would I write? What would I ask for? What would I say.

I challenge you, write a letter to Santa – as an adult what would be different from when you were a child? I am going to work on mine over the next few days and will plan to post it soon.
