Last month I had fun learning about Whit.li so I wrote a blog entry with a variety of ideas to Programmatically Leverage Personality Types with Whit.li. Now I have another idea to add to the list, which was sparked by Vizify’s visicards.
First, I setup my own vizicard with the color to represent the dominant color from my Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) profile (quadrant A, the Rational Self, which is blue). Then, I set my Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which is ISTJ. The result for me is this:
Now what if Whit.li allowed me to enter my own personality type into their system? The benefit to me is that I could (through Whit.li partners) see content and advertising that is related to my personality type. Also, Whit.li could improve their own engine by comparing what I say online to my personality type. Maybe even flag outliers for me and ask me “you said this, which doesn’t match your personality type – is that normal for you?”
However, I took these personality tests a couple of years before I started being active in social media, so I wonder if the old results match my online self?
