    Default Type of Reddit Community

    This community is kind of interesting socionically.

    : There is a big element of attention-seeking and 4chan-esque shock-humor, which makes kind of an integral part of the communital type. Attention-seeking is rewarded by the upvote/downvote system. Inflammatory titles and comments rise to the top.

    : But there's also a weird trend of sentimental, tear-jerker threads that suggest as a core value. This is pretty recent, I think, but apparently pervasive nowadays.

    : Although most posts are purely for entertainment...maybe this isn't strong evidence for though.

    : Lots of stuff about technology / life-hacking.

    : r/atheism, lol

    : r/trees, r/happy

    : r/todayilearned

    I get the feeling that the predominant culture is nerd SEE/SLI - ish, but there's lots of variety.

    It's so diverse, I never really thought about it. The only other redditor I know IRL is also an INFj. What stands out to me more are the religious and political leanings of most of the posters.
