I'm putting my hand up! Magic work Mr Wizard!

If someone decides on the dimensions and some questions, then the descriptions could be built by getting list members to take the test, then getting them to write about the category they scored. You could also let people write about the categories other than their own, as in "Borg says about Jupiter Brain: xxxxx"

First, is anyone able to flesh these dimensions out?

o	Individuality: Individual/Collectivist (I/C)
o	Level of radical enhancement: Enhanced/Gaussian (E/G)
o	Level of Materialist tendencies? Materialist/Subjectivist (M/S)
