    I wrote mine on the spot using Ne and Te, sprinkled with a little Si.

    I really want to know how they determine it... which words or combinations of words it looks for.

    Well, I think if it sounds matter-of-fact it'll guess S, and then if it's very Ti (that is, extremely intricate and complex) it iwll guess NT instead. If it's loopy and unrealistic it will guess N, but unless a lot of emotional words (as opposed to emotional imagery) it will still guess T. Although I have no idea how it guessed a fucking cowboy shootout as F.

    Hmm, very strong introvert/intuitive/thinking and 66% judging for my first one. Almost the exact same for the second. Third ended up with 75% thinking 53% perceiving. The third was one I feel almost embarrassed in how badly I wrote it.

    Best reason I can come up with is that I second guess so much when writing that much of the spontaneity is purged out. Which would also coincide with a stronger perceiving when I rushed/was unable to purge what I didn't like. Could also be something to deal with how the third had quotes in it from Macbeth. No clue how quoting something else would effect the test.

    Hmm, this snippet came back with strong introversion 72% thinking/judging and 54% intuition. And this sentence somehow increases intuition by 10%. Stating facts has increased intuition noticeably.

    I'm having a lot of fun with this. Putting in a shorter essay that I actually enjoyed myself with came back with the same crazy high introversion/thinking but this time 80% intuition 55% perceiving. Trying a few more everything except crazy high introversion seems to fluctuate to some degree.

    Just an interesting observation, when you enter 'complete non-sense' into the sensing/intuiting engine, you get 50% sensing, and 50% intuitive. Yet, when you enter 'absolute non-sense', suddenly your intuitive score jumps to 100%! Similarly, when I enter 'stupendous genius', it is 50/50, yet 'very smart person' receives a 100% S score!

    For the Thinking/Feeling, I entered 'person A is dexterous and received over 80% for thinking, yet when I re-entered the same sentence with one small addition, I feel that person A is dexterous, my Feeling score elevated to well over 80.

    This leads me to suspect that the test is based on superficial, Keirseyan or folk typological descriptions of personality types. In other words, if you use the word 'feel' or 'I' a great deal, you will be labelled as a feeling type writer. If you use difficult and non-vernacular words you will be labelled a sensing type. I hate to ruin the excitement for you again, yet I am afraid that this test, just like the majority of MBTI assessments tell us nothing insightful about our personalities or the way we write. Any person could virtually score as any type, as we implement different word choices when working on various written assignments. As Jaguar observed, his result would probably have been something other than INTJ if he submitted a written piece on a different topic and indeed, many of our other posters received one code in response to one of their articles yet a completely different one for writing that dealt with a wholly different subject-matter.

    A writing test of true typological insight would somehow reflect our deepest unconscious dispositions that manifest in our writing regardless of what words we use or even what topics we discuss. I would guess that such a test would not accept one-liners, it would need to focus on many long passages of our writing and look at the underlying structure of our rhetorical style and the subtle meanings of our writing. This would probably require software that is by far more sophisticated than the kind that we currently have.

    I'm trying to understand how a computer algorithm can know if something sounds matter-of-fact. What are the objective criteria it uses?

    Can you summarize your conclusion? I'm a little tired to actually read all that.
