    stupid system (5w4)
    I remember that a month or two ago a facebook friend of mine (who is just about to move to California because she got a really good scholarship and stipend to get her Ph.D. in literature at Berkley) commented on one of her friends who posted that this test had just told her that she wrote like James Joice (on whom the friend in question had written her thesis). She said that this quiz was written by a vanity publisher in order to encourage people to overestimate their skill and pay the company far more than they deserve in order to publish their work. I think she also said that she doubted the site actually analyzes the text in order to decide which author to choose.

    No complaints.

    First posted some obscure paragraphs by Leo Tolstoy and it said... Leo Tolstoy. Well done!

    Then I posted some obscure paragraphs of mine and it said... Charles Dickens. Well, Dickens is claimed to have been ENFP.
