Well Watson, what do you think?

The Gorse Fox was playing on the computer. He went to the IBM Watson site and saw a personality analysis tool therein.

This is what Watson has to say about the Gorse Fox, based on analysis of this blog for the year 2010:
You are heartfelt, tranquil and restrained. 
You are calm under pressure: you handle unexpected events calmly and effectively. You are self-assured: you tend to feel calm and self-assured. And you are calm-seeking: you prefer activities that are quiet, calm, and safe. 
Your choices are driven by a desire for efficiency. 
You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
 Now, if Watson looks at the Gorse Fox's Twitter presence, he makes a slightly different analysis:
You are skeptical. 
You are energetic: you enjoy a fast-paced, busy schedule with many activities. You are modest: you are uncomfortable being the center of attention. And you are dutiful: you take rules and obligations seriously, even when they're inconvenient. 
Your choices are driven by a desire for organization. 
You consider both achieving success and tradition to guide a large part of what you do. You seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.
Well, all things being considered, the Gorse Fox wonders how close this really is. Obviously, he has a view of himself which may not be shared by others. Watson may just have provided some insights.
