Who Do You Write Like?

My first result was Vladimir Nabokov, which makes me ridiculously ecstatic because he is my hands-down favorite author, and Lolita is my favorite book. So yay. :)

But for the sake of variation, and to see how my different stories may be different, I decided to do this a few more times to see how consistent the results were. I used what I thought were my best quality pieces of writing.

Second Result - Vladimir Nabokov (hmm... perhaps I am more than a little influenced)

Third Result - Vladimir Nabokov (...ok now I have to keep going until I get a different result)

Okay, the ensuing results in no specific order: Vladimir Nabokov, Chuck Palahniuk, Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft (that was for an essay for school... lol), and Dan Brown.

This thing is going to provide me with endless entertainment and interest, so thanks for posting it, you're awesome. =]

This test is screwy and I feel like I broke it. >_>

I used part of my intro post into Fortune's Fools.

It gave me H.P. Lovecraft.

There is no way I write that good.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I am in the middle between passive and aggressive. But I prefer to plan things out with my fellow RPers so I don't mess them up. Although I do keep plot twists under wraps. I believe planning things out helps make for better posts so I do it often.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, sci-fi, post apocalyptic, parody.
Genre You DON'T Like
No SMUT EVER. Not big on modern RPs, not a fan of Mass RPs due to past experiences. I may make exceptions though if an RP is particularly interesting. I will NEVER get involved with anything like yaoi or furry FYI, those I do not make exceptions with. Also not too keen on perverse RPs.
Johathan Swift apparently. Awesome, the dude who wrote Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, etc. I like satire and parodies.

Gotta say, that matches. I don't think this thing can really measure writing SKILL but it can measure style. So you might write similarly to these people but some program isn't going to be able to tell you you're as good as them. Programs can't have opinions yet and good writing is subjective.

My first result was Stephen King and I was like "Uh-WHAT?!". I mean, it was a rather extensive post as Natalie, but come on! Anyway, the second result I got from another post in IW as Acqua (myself as a character, XD) I got Dan Brown and I was like "I'M IN DESPAIR!!!" The third go-around, I got Stephen King again, the fourth, J.D. Salinger (I guess "The Catcher in the Rye" wasn't too bad), and lastly, I got Stephen King again. *Unnoffically declares the test broken*
