    I'm good with Lou Reed and hmm...Mark Wahlberg. Would you type Matt Damon as LSI too? I'm less hot on Dr Phil, but that's personal distaste coming through there rather than an actual coherent argument against type. Ethan Hawke as LSI suprises me. I don't know enough about Michael Jordan to comment, and ditto on Van Halen. I like the mixture of music and sports celebs though, I think it's appropriate.

    I'd argue against using Che Guevara as a type exemplar because of the cultural baggage he carries - I think the average knowledge of Che is so so far from the reality of Che that he's more like a rorschach ink blot than a real life person. I also think he's too politically divisive, which is a limitation I would apply to Dick Cheney as well. If you identify with the opposing political view, it is possible you'd look at those type exemplars and think you couldn't be that type at all.

    I fucking adore James Dean, he was the emo icon of my early teenage years, love love love.

    Dali or Lennon.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Thanks everyone...

    Idolatrie--those are really good points about Che and Dick Cheney... (Those are two people I doubt are included in the same sentence much, haha.) Do you think James Dean would be okay to use for LSI? (Thank you for vetoing Dr. Phil, lol)

    Gilly, Numbers, would you be good with Lou Reed for LSI? James Dean? I keep forgetting that people in Australia and England would be less aware of Jordan's personality.

    Ok so maybe he's not the best "middle-of-the-road" example. But, then we have to ask...who that is Beta is going to be "middle of the road?"

    Actually his sort of...expression of internal tension, in both speech and face, is quite clearly reminiscent of Hitler, IMO.

    If the instructions are just to choose from the listed options, then I'm totally good with Lou Reed and/or James Dean. I'll caveat that with not having thought properly about their types, but hey, if you're confident of them, coolbeans.

    I think James Dean is slightly less obscure than Lou Reed, but then a part of me goes if someone doesn't know who Lou Reed is, then they really shouldn't be an LSI! *elitist*

    idolatrie answers the beta door.

    i: Hey there. Nice to meet you. You seem to be a bit like me. Have you heard of Lou Reed? No? WELL.

    idolatrie disappears for a bit.

    i: This is The Velvet Underground and Nico; this is Transformer. Come back when you appreciate. We don't welcome your kind here.

    idolatrie slams door, and starts reorganising her music collection to fill up the empty spaces. Oddly enough, the gigantic music collection seems to largely consist of sequentially numbered Lou Reed CDs.

    Why is Hitler stated as a proposal? You should get rid of him.

    oh yes. i completely identify with hitler. i've been aspiring to dominate the world lately. i think i sort of identify with hitler and springer actually... i like to bring things out in to the open ya know? confrontation can be a good thing! jews, pregnant women... it's all the same. and it's all got to be let loose.



    but on a serious note, bono. even though i think he's a bit of a fruitcake, i relate to his music.
