I couldn't guess much about other list participants, though I expect that,
on the Myers-Briggs typology, the list has a disproportionately large number
of INTJs. I am one of them.

On the Enneagram, which I'd never heard of, I'm afraid, I find I am a type
5, backed up equally by types 3 and 8.

Astrologically, I am a Leo.

My experience is that the Myers-Briggs thing gives very convincing results
when I see friends take it. As you'd expect, I don't believe in astrology.
Judgment reserved on the Enneagram.

Do you have theories about other frequent participants? If it comes to that,
what would you have guessed about me if I hadn't just revealed all?
