I write like these authors

According to the site I Write Like, I write like:

Of all those, the only comparison that flatters me is the one to Jane Austen, who also happens to be the only author above whose work I’ve read.

The lesson I take away from this is that I should write more about cats if I want to be famous a couple of centuries from now!

Oh, and just for fun, I ran this post through the analyser. Result: (drumroll)…

I write like
Vladimir Nabokov

What font are you?

On one of my random forays around the Internet, I did the What font are you? quiz. Turns out I am Andale Mono. This is the assessment I received:

You are a geek, pure and simple. You spend a lot of time online.
In fact, you probably love the internet more than anyone you know.
You are picky about design, mostly for readability’s sake.
You are the type most likely to be irritated by a bad font.

Me, a geek? I’m more geeky than some people I know and way less geeky than others. Depends on where you draw the geek line.  I love the internet? Possibly. One of my pastimes is standards-based web design. Picky about design? Oh yes. Been thinking about redesigning my church’s bulletin and visitors’ cards—don’t tell my pastor. Irritated by a bad font? More like irritated by the inappropriate use of fonts (the right font in the right place!)

Wonder what the other choices are…

My theological worldview is…

Evangelical Holiness/ Wesleyan.

What is your theological worldview?” is a test I took way back in January this year and have just rediscovered among my Google Notebook clippings. The test was not very easy for me, because I’d never thought of a lot of that stuff before. I can’t vouch for the test’s accuracy, but here’s what it told me:

You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God’s grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavily by John Wesley and the Methodists.

  • Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan:86%
  • Reformed Evangelical: 79%
  • Neo orthodox: 71%
  • Fundamentalist: 61%
  • Emergent/Postmodern: 54%
  • Charismatic/Pentecostal: 39%
  • Roman Catholic: 36%
  • Modern Liberal: 32%
  • Classic Liberal: 21%

Influenced by John Wesley and the Methodists? That’s news to me. I do admit to enjoying his brother Charles’ hymns, though. Maybe I’ve been influenced by people who’ve been by others who’ve been influenced by him—indirect influence, that is.

My MBTI type is…

ISTJ. Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging.

Let me start from the beginning… The last episode of The Boundless Show spurred me (and a bunch of listeners, I’m sure) to take the Myers-Briggs personality test. I’ve taken a few other tests before, and as host Lisa A. described the indicators, I quickly figured out where I lay in 3/ 4 of them; only the second letter had me stumped.

It appears I’m in royal company– Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth are ISTJs. And that I could very well choose to be an accountant or a lawyer.

Always good to know, I suppose…

Addendum: You may find the Prayers for Myers-Briggs Types chuckle-inducing. I did!
