Take the Jung Typology Test – What Kind of Person Are You?

carl_jung I see all kinds of tests and stupid quizzes that people take in places like Facebook and MySpace, or send via email. This is not one of those tests. Although there may be debate about whether personality tests are valid, the Jung (or Myers-Briggs) Type Indicator tests are most often used by professionals to evaluate people they plan to hire or give career advice to.

These tests consist of a series of questions that are designed to reveal the basic aspects of your personality. The original questionnaire from Myers-Briggs was based on theories from Carl Jung, and first published in 1962.

Here you can see an example of the questions:


Take the test:

You can take this Jung Typology Test at the Humanmetrices website. Naturally, in order to get good results, you have to be honest with yourself. When the test is over, you’ll see the resulting four letters which represent which of the 16 personality types best match your answers. There are also links providing detailed descriptions about each type.

I’ve taken this test twice over the last two years. Both times I ended up with the same result. I’m told that my personality is INTJ. According to some sources, this means that I’m a rare type, which only appears in about 1 to 4 percent of the population.


What kind of person are you?

Be sure to post your results in the comments below.

Techie Buzz Verdict:

The Humanmetrics site offers a great free service with few ads. It’s somewhat fun and also very informative. You might learn quite a bit more about what really motivates you and makes you act like you do.

Jogstr Allows You to Stumble Through Digg

Do you love StumbleUpon? Do you love Digg? If the answer to both the questions is yes, then you will probably enjoy Jogstr. Jogstr is a web-service which takes the data from Digg and serves it through a StumbleUpon like interface.

Using Jogstr is simple. Just select the categories you are interested in and click on the Jogstr button. Jogstr will randomely select a recently popular item from Digg and display it. If you are only interested in a specific niche, you can also filter stories based on their sub-category. Although Jogstr displays the most popular stories by default, it is possible to configure it to stumble through the Upcoming section instead. Sharing pages is quick and painless thanks to inbuilt support for Twitter, Facebook and pretty much every social bookmarking service you have heard about.

Jogstr - Stumble Through Digg

Techie Buzz Verdict

One of the best things about StumbleUpon is the element of surprise. Once you have selected your areas of interest, it works on its own. Jogstr brings the same experience to Digg. It works really well for the Entertainment as well as Offbeat section. However for the rest of the categories, you may find the traditional Digg interface to be more useful. Jogstr is an interesting idea which has been executed nicely. Give it a try and let us know what you think about it.

Create Goo.gl Short URL’s with a Bookmarklet

goo_gl_logo Earlier today, Amit posted a note here, which told you about a Firefox add-on to create short URLs with Goo.gl. My immediate thought was:

How can I create Goo.gl links if I’m not using Firefox?

I wasn’t a bit surprised to find an answer at Marklets.com, one of my favorite spots to grab new bookmarklets. Bookmarklets will usually work in any modern web browser. If you don’t know what bookmarklets are, see this FAQ.

Now, I’ll part the curtain to display the Goo.gl Bookmarklet:

goo.gl bookmarklet

Drag the link above and drop it onto your web browser’s Bookmarks Toolbar, or right click and copy the address, then create a new bookmark. You can then move it to your bookmarks toolbar folder.

To use the Goo.gl bookmarklet, all you have to do is click the bookmarklet in your toolbar when you are at a page that you want to shorten the URL for. Here’s what you’ll see when you click the bookmarklet.


After the popup appears, highlight the short URL and copy it.

Here at Techie Buzz, we have also posted several other useful bookmarklets and links to lists of bookmarklets. You can find our posts about bookmarklets here.

Techie Buzz Verdict:

This bookmarklet could use some work. It would be nice if there were an easier way to grab the short URL instead of highlighting and copying. I also have to question the use of Goo.gl for shortening website addresses. Currently, there are far better URL shortening services out there, such as bit.ly and others we’ve mentioned before.
