There is nothing worse than a snarky web page.

Apparently we are both "thinkers." Which is sort of a relief, if you, er, think about it.

It does a good job, doesn't it? I was surprised.

If they just count the word per post, Cass, they will easily be able to figure out how the fact that you "think" ; )

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time

The instapundit.com sure fits that bill.

I'm a "Doer" and that fits me to a T.

Interesting; here's my analysis:

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.

Since I am in fact an aircraft mechanic by trade, it seems accurate, at least to that extent. Also, I am "independent and highly skilled" and "seek fun and action". I "enjoy adventure and risk", too. Hmmm...

There were supposed to be two italicized paragraphs in that last post...they were both that way in the preview, but those omit spacing.

Yeah, the Castle got The Mechanics, too.

...masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves...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.

Nothin' is more fun and action-y and adventurous and risky than popping in here when Sly is visiting...

Dead on when on this "The logical and analytical type. They are especialy(sic) attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications. "

Dead wrong on this: "Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about."

In Boston talk, Cass is "wicked smart" but she is also one of the nicest and classiest people I know.

It gave my random thought blog page The Artists. Which is really kind of funny. I'm hardly artistic.

I wanted to see what they thought of Iowahawk:

"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 donĀ“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."

. . . .???

Well, visiting at the Castle *can* be hugely entertaining, (and it does give me a moment or three out of the corner here) but the *departure ritual* John insists on when I leave has lost the thrilling luster it originally held.

Well, stop trying to abscond with the 81mm mortar tube.

You *know* that walking funny is a dead giveaway...

Posted by: BillT at November 21, 2008 03:00 PM

It says I'm a "Mechanic", too.
