Where I stand on the US political spectrum

As ever please click on the images to enlarge them and, though the Pew Research Center is a serious body, take the results of all such pop quizzes with a pinch of the proverbial condiment.

You can find the quiz here, if you want to try it yourself. I guess most libertarians will get very similar results, though the lack of an "it's none of the government's business" option will make for unreliable outcomes on social issues.

So what is the other 14%?

86% Heterotompaine is 86% HeteroHow hetero are you? How hetero is Martha Stewart? Try out any Twitter name and get the real picture. Are we really the words we use? Hope to see you at Stockholm Pride!


h/t The apparently 72% hetero Croydonian, without asking why he was cruising such sites, or why Stockholm Gay Pride has based its logo on the late lamented Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

INTP - The Thinkers

"The logical and analytical type. They are especialy 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.
They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. 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."

h/t to Devil's Kitchen for pointing me to another little gadget purporting to analyse the content of a blog. This is the result for The Last Ditch. Make of it what you will. Personally, I think I am brilliant at "seeing and understanding the needs of other people," so must regard it as flawed.

BMI comparison

The GenderAnalyzer gadget mentioned in my last post seems to have caught the blogging imagination. Given that Norm's and Thunderdragon's writing was analysed as being considerably more masculine than mine, I thought I would compare some of the other bloggers I read regularly. Showing feminine scores as minus, the results were as follows. Make of them what you will.


Gender (sic) Analysis

GenderAnalyzer - Determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman.

ManThis (apart from the infuriatingly prudish use of the grammatical term "gender" to distinguish between the sexes) is fun. The software was 63% sure that I am a man. Just follow the link and type in your blog's URL to have the benefit of its opinion on this critical issue.
