    Create your own typology

    Yes! How would you classify humans into groupings that are relevant to you in particular?
    I'm not sure what labels I would use, but these are some of the questions that would be extremely relevant to me (trying to categorize them as well):

    Sense of humour
    Can a rape joke be funny?
    Can all things be slaughtered at the altar of comedy?

    Belief system
    Are you willing to state and defend your opinion/belief in the face of overwhelming resistance, rejection or shaming?
    Can you gracefully admit when you're wrong, and gracefully learn from your mistakes?
    Can tolerance be paving the road to misery and the destruction of all things worth fighting for?

    Self-awareness
    Can you see and admit to your own flaws without turning them into humblebrags?

    Comfort with duality or internal/external contradiction
    Can you love an animal and eat it?
    Can you still like something even if it's popular or mediocre?
    Can you find something worthwhile in even the most worthless of things?

    I'd be curious to see what questions others come up with - indicating what they find important.

    I would have to rewrite these questions so that there wasn't an inherent bias in the wording...

    WHOA. Simplify to:

    B: Enjoys scatalogical humor, pranks, Jim Carey, Cartman, Trailer Park Boys, Medea, funny voices

    M: Enjoys parody, absurd situational humor, Patton Oswalt, "Arrested Development", Gulliver's Travels

    More to come.

    Integrity
    Are your responses to things generally detrimental to life/others/self or sustaining to life/others/self? (I guess life, others, and self could be sub categories of integrity.)

    Intention vs. Whimsy
    Do you feel like things just happen to you? or do you feel like you are employing some agency to measurable effect? (neither is bad...just a revelation of some sort of existential quality that is apt to change through life).

    Artistic vs. Artsy
    Does inspiration lead you to creativity and new ideas, or do you take mostly from the ideas and instruction of others when it comes to problem solving or crafting things?


    dunno...I like yours, @Mxx

    Accepts reality qua causality as the one only basis of truth/proof, or doesn't.

    So, Has Potential or Doesn't.

    Done.

    Here's my anomaly in this dichotomy: while I lean very heavily towards M, I get uncontrollable giggles with things like tripping, stumbling, accidentally falling. Both when it happens to me and others. I even find fear to be hilarious - the times I've been really scared in my life, I've burst out laughing.
    Also with strong emotions, I start laughing. The anecdote that comes to mind was the scene in Inception where the wife leaps to her death from the opposite window, and Leonardo's character cries out helplessly. I snort-laughed incredibly loudly in a packed cinema. I was mortified! But couldn't stop laughing from then being so mortified.
