psychological profile of 'the typical CFer'

this topic has been alluded to previously in other posts, but has anyone with experience in psychology picked up on any characteristics that people on this board have in common?
what is the psychological profile of your "typical" CFer?

Re: psychological profile of 'the typical CFer'

Define "psychological profile" a little better. If you're talking about something like the Meyer's-Briggs test, I think I came up as an INTP (although that was YEARS ago, and I've become considerably more extroverted since then).

In other criteria, "psychotic" would probably be used by a lot of people to describe most of us...

Re: psychological profile of 'the typical CFer'

Really no such thing as a typical CFer. Perhaps the only thing we have in common is a desire to improve our physical selves.

Re: psychological profile of 'the typical CFer'

Last time we addressed this, the agreed upon profile was that there is no pattern. CFers appear to come equally distributed from all temperment types

You think it's because I overly-verbalize my feelings about my ideas concerning people being either guilty or innocent of getting on my nerves?
