This is interesting

So IBM has their supercomputer doing personality analyses. Gave it a go by running the stuff I've written on this blog through it, got this:

You are a bit compulsive, somewhat critical and skeptical.
You are intermittent: you have a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. You are content: you are content with your level of accomplishment and do not feel the need to set ambitious goals. And you are unconcerned with art: you are less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys.
Your choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them.

Seems pretty accurate, aside from the stuff about art and creative stuff which I'm actually pretty open to (even if I might not always understand it when it comes to some modern/contemporary stuff).

Edit: That's with informal text from the blog, I tried running some formal stuff I've written through it and got this instead:

You are shrewd, skeptical and tranquil.
You are imaginative: you have a wild imagination. You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. And you are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them.
Your choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
 

Edit: Tried running through a much larger text sample of 6000 words each of formal and informal writing, got this:

You are shrewd, skeptical and can be perceived as indirect.
You are imaginative: you have a wild imagination. You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. And you are unstructured: you do not make a lot of time for organization in your daily life.
Your choices are driven by a desire for self-expression.
You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them. You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done.
