Psoakoonaloose me

— You’re a nice third degree witness, faith! But this is no laughing matter. Do you think we are tonedeafs in our noses to boot? Can you not distinguish the sense, prain, from the sound, bray? You have homosexual catheis of empathy between narcissism of the expert and steatopygic invertedness. Get yourself psychoanolised!
— O, begor, I want no expert nursis symaphy from yours broons quadroons and I can psoakoonaloose myself any time I want (the fog follow you all!) without your interferences or any other pigeonstealer.

More from the world of the web meme. Current favourites doing the rounds include various blog analysers which are by no means scientific but which curiosity impels one to try out anyway. The Typealyzer subjects your words to a Myers-Briggs Type personality test which in my case reveals me to be in the INTP class:

The Thinkers
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.

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.

I’ve never tried a proper Meyers-Briggs test but the above seems quite accurate if anything so vaguely algorithmic can ever be thus described. I did try an Enneagram test a while ago and came out as a Four (The Individualist) which is more applicable than the others on that scale.

Back at the web testing, the GenderAnalyzer rates { feuilleton } as 99% male based on the aforementioned “logical and analytical” writing style. So much for gay men being more feminine… I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed by this. I obviously need to get in touch with my inner drag queen, in which case the Drag Queen Name Generator would be a place to start.
