I don't know how much credence y'all might give this kind of thing, but I'm
interested in the "meta" of conglanging, as measured in as many ways.

This classifies "temprament types" into 16 groups, and though this kind of
labelling can easily be denigrated, IMO it might be at the very least fun to see
if we can add another trait to the "profile of an average conlanger" that was
apparently arrived at a while ago.  Lars mentioned it when we were in London,
and IIRC it went a little like this:


Anyone who wants to share their results is encouraged to, either publicly or
privately.  I turn out to be INTP, apparently, which I interpret as meaning I
ought to be an auxlanger instead of an artlanger.  My earliest conlang efforts
were auxlangs, I suppose, so there may be something in it after all...
