Correction:
You might be interested for you. or,

that sentence makes no sense… but "you might be interested in… (this article on the elephant shark)"

This might be interesting for you.

thanks (but what’s wrong with citeulike now? 😛 )
today’s english lesson:
"interesting" has an effect of characterization while "interested’ implies an action. "Interesting" means that the following noun is interesting. "Interested" shows that you feel interested in it.
She is very interesting. (She makes me interested in her.)
I am very interested in this book. (I feel an interest in it.)
I have a very interesting job. (This means I feel that my job is interesting.) But you can’t say that you have a very interested job. You can be interested in this job, if you want to apply for it.
This is also true for some other words like: boring & bored, annoying & annoyed.
there are probably better ways of explaining this, but i hope that helps.
