I meant to say *mildly* disposed, not strongly. Sorry. Two new entries have changed the percentages to

U    10%
M    50%
F    10%
A    30%

Actually I think Undifferentiated Types are in the minority. But you and Eddie Sullivan make good points. I only provided summary stats for a small sample of mostly men and didn't mean to really draw any cocnlusions. Actually, given there were so many men in the sample, it's encouraging to see so many andros and that the masculine types were not pathologically so.
