2 Tools to Analyze You Blogging Style

Have you read Adam Cohen’s post, What Does Your Blog Say About You? If not, it’s a must read.  In his post Adam ponders over the somewhat interesting analysis he received from Gender Analyzer and Typealyzer. Gender Analyzer uses artificial intelligence to determine whether a blog is authored by a man or a woman.  After submitting my blog, the results concluded that there was a 77% chance it was written by a man.  Seriously – take a look at the screen shot.  To be fair, Gender Analyzer does have a disclaimer:

We created Gender Analyzer out of curiosity and fun. It uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman.GenderAnalyzer REsults

Phew..so Gender Analyzer was developed for entertainment purposes only?  I hope so, because the algorithm seems to have a few bugs in it.   Or it could mean that 77% of the time I write like a man – it’s possible.  I do have a tendency to blog about technology  more than any other topic, and historically technology and science have been dominated by men.  What do you think?

The next tool is Typealyzer, which analyzes your writing style based on your blog posts.  Typealyzer analyzes you blog to determine the type of writer that you are -somewhat of a Myers-Briggs test for bloggers.  Typealyzer’s blog states:

For a long period of time, we have been training our system to recognize texts that characterize the different types. The system, Typealyzer, can now by itself find features that distinguishes one type from another. When all features, words and sentences, are statistically analyzed, Typealyzer is able to guess which personality type the text represents.

Typealyzer concluded that I fit into the category: INTJ – The Scientists.  The people that fit into this type are individualistic, long-range thinkers.   They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be physically hesitant to try new things.  Frankly I am very, very curious about the world around me.  I consider myself a students of life, but contrary to what Typealyzer says, I’m not afraid to physically try anything new – not at all.   Ok, except for swimming with sharks – never.  Take a look at the screen shots.

I'm a Scientist

My question is, how would you use these tools to improve your blogs, writing style, or find out what makes you tick?  I’d love to hear you thoughts.
