Found this site at

  • Oboeinsight

  • It's called

  • Typealyzer

  • You enter the address of your blog and it tells you what "type" your blog is.

    This is FFTL

    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.

    This is FFTR

    ESFP - The Performers
    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 don´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.

    I've now got to go due domestic stuff.

    Hallo, Lane!
    The "Mechanics" description seems to fit you in many ways. The "Performer" one less so, possibly because you compose for performers, but give no public performances, yourself, engaging others to perform your compositions.
    Keep composing!

    Hallo, Lane & MEREDITH!
    Please, Lane, pass along to Meredith the LL's "Thanks!!" that you are letting the LL stay at your place when she comes to Seattle in February. She flies in on Feb. 2, and flies out on Feb. 24. She looks forward to having lots of conversations with Meredith when Meredith has time for them. Her English has improved substantially, perhaps because we have had more frequent "Englisch Stunden" in which we snuggle side-by-side on her couch and she reads a text in English and then tells me what it says in German (or vice versa).
    She also hopes to join you whenever it is OK with you in watching whatever you see in TV or DVD, as she says hearing people speak English on such programs will help her with her comprehension and pronounciation.
    THANKS for please PASSING this along TO MEREDITH. She also hopes to help you and Meredith with kitchen work.

    Actually Anonomann, FFTR is the site mostly contributed to by Butch/Glenn, the ex-professional actor, full-time teacher, and part-time poet, SO, the description is uncanny, and about 75% accurate even for an iconoclast like mineself. Actually the descriptions for both blogsites are scarey in their accurateness. It is almost so close that I wonder if Lane is pulling some Savant wool over our eyes? If not, then synchronicity rules! The part about being lousy in management positions nails me feet to the floor. Actually it is uncanny and weird and way too accurate. We all think we are so unique, so much the individual, and then some smartass blogsite, website, comes along and "knows us" based on our bio and content. Freaky for sure! It was like when I was being an actor. Sometimes I would go to an audtion and have to sit in a room waiting with 23 guys who looked just like me; humbling experience.

    I am gearing up for the family gathering tomorrow, where most of our children will descend on our home. One pair will be working and visiting the in-laws. We have to take turns you see.

    The Tacoma Film Club is gearing up for our annual Christmas party this December 13th, a Saturday. They are always blow-outs which scare up members we have hardly seen at meetings for most of the year.

    I am leading the discussion this next Saturday, November 29, at the Grand Theater in Tacoma. The film will be SYNECDOCHE, NY, all about an acting company, an odd and delusional director who cannot distinquish reality from theatrics. It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman; looking forward to it.

    Thanks, Doug, for looking up FFTR as well, and welcome back as co-poster.

    I'm a "Doer."

    I knew that.

    I was a mechanic.
    I'm trying to be an artist FCS!

    But my main journey in life is to find out how things work.
    Which is what studying composition is all about, I guess.

    How to turn an audiences endorphans on by wiggling air at them.
