Getting Things Done

I spotted this little gizmo via Harriet Devine's excellent blog. It analyzes writing style not personality. Good job too as with multiple-contributors the overall personality will be nebulous to say the least. But apparently the writing style(s) of the ibooknet blog suggest we're:

ESTP - The Doers: The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.
The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

In common, no doubt, with many bookselling households Sunday night here is always a whirl of activity, parcelling books from two days of sales instead of just one, so "doer" seems appropriate this evening. A worrying level of multi-tasking takes place as I am also a mother, but I have yet to pack a copy of Derrida into my 5 year old's lunch box, and post cheese sandwiches to a University library, so I guess I am a successful 'doer' in that respect at least.

As to the rest, "physical out-door activities" was a bit of a shock (that'll be Jane and her chickens), and as for "problem with sitting still or remaining inactive " - we're bookdealers, it's what bookdealers do best!
