Can you believe this? Someone actually did a study of the personality traits of bloggers? Thanks to GruntDoc for the heads up. He picked it up from this blog.
Here's an abstract of the actual study. A quote:
The results of two studies indicate that people who are high in openness to new experience and high in neuroticism are likely to be bloggers. Additionally, the neuroticism relationship was moderated by gender indicating that women who are high in neuroticism are more likely to be bloggers as compared to those low in neuroticism whereas there was no difference for men. These results indicate that personality factors impact the likelihood of being a blogger and have implications for understanding who blogs.
I dare not comment on the accuracy of this analysis with regard to this author. It would be a HIPAA violation.
