Your Linguistic Profile:

50% General American English

30% Yankee

10% Dixie

10% Upper Midwestern

hi. I am an entp. I always find it interesting when i see people who talk about their personality profile. I first found out about the whole myers briggs assessment about a year ago, which is odd seeing as I am in my 30's and am a college graduate. One would think that I would have found out about it long ago. But anyways, I think that stuff is unbelieveable. I never really understood why I was as I was, or that there were others like me, until I read the descriptions of ENTP profile. It's exactly, down to the smallest detail, me. So. Anyways, seeing your profile made me want to spew a bit on the subject.

Well, Thank you for spewing. I find ENTP's to be enigmatic in an interesting kind of way.

I didn't have a lick of midwestern in my speech, according to that quiz. But I didn't have much Dixie, either--and I'm from south Louisiana! Oh well!

Re: Haloscan, just go to and sign up. It's free, and the instructions for using it are pretty straightforward. I must warn you, though, you will lose all of your previous Blogger comments when replacing with Haloscan. There may be a way to save those comments, but I didn't know it when I got Haloscan.

Hope you're having a good weekend!
