I thought it interesting that there is a correspondance between the first four circuits and the four main sensory areas of the human body. 1-mouth 2-anus 3-hands 4-genitals. Anectodally, I note that nutring types do often seem to be into food, high-IQ types seem to be fidgety, and social types have active sex lives. (I don't have information on the toilet habits of bosses, sorry ;-)

I agree that the 8-circuit model isn't scientific (no testing proposed) and that the higher circuits seem pretty bunk.
