    Also there may be types of humans who were killed or extinct.. I'll bookmark it to read

The studies of the Allen Institute could give weight to the tendencies and patterns in human personality that we are already familiar with.

    Thoughts and comments about the article? Do you think articles like this could shed light and credibility to what we study here on this site?

    I don't see any comments so far about what each of the 32 different brain type expressions are like. I just skimmed and glanced over everything, but maybe someone else could investigate further, if you have the time.
    Gee, this is about genes, alzheimer and such, not about silly signs and letter soup.

    Also, you changed the two-three most important words so as to achieve maximum effect. So, well done!

    The study has nothing to do with personality/cognitive differences between people but focuses on the gene expressions that make a human brain human, and not for example a mouse's. As the article suggests, it's helpful to know how a rat's brain differs from a human brain so those differences can be taken into account when testing on rats any brain related medication possibilities intended for humans.

    An example not in those articles but related to research I've been doing on evolution...
    One major difference between a chimpanzee brain and a human brain is the number of pathways to get energy to the brain vs to the bones. In chimps, they have more energy pathways to support the skeletal-muscular system than to support the brain, while humans have significantly more energy pathways to support the brain than to support the skeletal-muscular system. This difference, of course, is reflected in genetic differences between humans and chimpanzees. I don't recall the next part too well, but it had something to do with what would happen to a fetus/child who had less of those pathways than a normal human brain, and the severe cognitive and social deficits it would imply, even if there were still more pathways than a chimp's. It also suggested implications of these difference if using chimps to test medications intended for humans.

    This is the kind of stuff that the Allen Institute is studying, not the differences between normal/healthy human brains.

    There may be different traits to form 32 types besides Jung's functions.
    After they'll describe those types, then the situation will be more clear.
    Types examples: video bloggers, actors

    I just want them to verify what I've always know. That way it's indispensable and no one will argue with me when I types them

    One study that was done in an archeological burial site revealed 8 skull mythologies.

    The only way they will discover behavior similarity is through medical general discovery because that's what is being funded to research by big money.

I think it's interesting numerically that they found 32 expressed different brain types.
    Actually, I don't know that now. I must've seen something wrong.

    How will that affect the fact that you're mistyping people at least 9 times out of 10?

    That I still types you SLI and for some reason you view your self otherwise is baffling to me.
