Also, while I was tallying up my own score, I noticed something. I pretty much got mostly 1's. I got 2's on three items (since I'm cismale, from a Western country, and have a beard), and a single 0 (since I never wear glasses nor contacts), but the rest of my items were 1's.

I guess it reflects the fact that I neither fit society's norm (WASP, Protestant, conservative/moderate/authoritarian, xSxJ neurotypical preppy/jock/prep) nor the "nerd norm" (WASP, atheist, libertarian, INTx nerd with Asperger's).

I just realised, no discussion about which languages you speak.

Are there really stereotypes or noticed tendencies about conlangers tending to learn particular foreign languages, though? I'm not aware of any.

Are you the ultimate conlanger stereotype? Who's the most archetypal conlanger here? And what IS the actual profile of a typical conlanger, anyway? Let us find out!

I fixed up the misspelling of "seapunk" in the subcultures list, and added two more example subcultures (sadboi and VSCO girl).

I don’t know what any of those are.
I’ve heard of VSCO girl, I think I’ve got the VSCO app on my iPad, but I don’t know what the app is, and I definitely don’t know what a VSCO girl is.
Seapunk and sadboi are brand new terms to me.
Steampunk cyberpunk dieselpunk I know.
I feel like I’ve seen ***boi etc. for various values of ***, but I still don’t know what they are.
If I Google for them will I find out?
Edit: Well, I found out what seapunk is. The explanations of sadbois and VSCOgirls were incomprehensible. I found a lot but it did no good. It reminds me of the heraldic motto of the Wormrunners’ Digest: “Once I have finished explaining, you will understand even less.”
Edit: BTW we have only two cisgirls; is either of them a VSCOgirl?

One is a nerd, and the other is a loner nerd with gamer metalhead tendencies. So the answer is no.

When I read the word "seapunk" My first thought was the animations in Plastic Beach.

Wow! Three demisexual/asexual autistic people in a row -- two of whom are nonbinary! We're getting a trend here . . .


EDIT: VSCO girls! I don't think any of our female members here look like this.

I once said I am demisapiosexual. I may have added a third prefix.
It may be that neither prefix applies to me 100% but both apply to me at noticeable strength.
OTOH at 68 y/o with a grown daughter and two deceased ex-wives and during a pandemic “asexual” or “formerly heterosexual” applies just as well.

1. Gender: cismale.
2. Sexual orientation: not sure, never been in a situation where this would be revealed but I feel like I’m either straight, bisexual, or pansexual. A lot of my birth family (I’m adopted) have come out as bisexual and pansexual though so that may make me bi or pan. Also a lot of them happen to be demisexual as well.
3. Handedness: ambidextrous.
4. Nationality: US, Virginia.
5. Ethnicity you primarily identify with: European, North African, Hispanic, and East, South, West, and Southeast Asian are my main ancestries by percentage (with European being the most over 90%). So mixed race.
6. Neurotype: autism level 1/ADHD.
7. Health conditions and physical disabilities: allergies, may have asthma.
8. Do you wear glasses?: yes.
9. Facial hair: yes but always shave.
10. Body type (underweight, average, overweight, obese, Jigglypuff, muscular, or whatnot): a bit overweight But I keep excersising.
11. Subculture: I don’t fall under any I believe but not sure if this will change in the future.
12. Species/breed of pets: none. Would love a bird some day, can’t have a cat due to allergies and a dog due to being a collector of a lot of things that would easily be destroyed by one (I collect plushies and rubber ducks/chickens/other similar vintage toys and musical equipment, first ones are self explanatory, latter because I have some synthesizers).
13. Religion (Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Mormon, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Baha'i, Scientologist, Asatru, ECKANKAR, Hare Krishna, Shinto, Rastafarian, LaVeyan, Wiccan, deist, atheist, agnostic, ignostic, etc.): raised Roman Catholic by adopted family, personally worship my own conworld’s religion.

1. Gender: Cismale
2. Sexual orientation: Unfortunately and reluctantly gay, thought otherwise five years ago. *Plays the Freddie Mercury version of “The Geat Pretender” in the background, waits for surprised PMs to roll in*
3. Handedness: Proud lefty (except for mice and trackballs).
4. Nationality: German, but registring for Polish citizenship.
5. Ethnicity you primarily identify with: German/Polish. Just call me a European.
6. Neurotype: Neurotypical (my mum had me tested).
7. Health conditions and physical disabilities: Scoliosis, near/farsightedness, flat feet, crooked (British™) teeth (to name a few I know of).
8. Do you wear glasses? YES, see above. I'd never go out without them: 25 years and still counting.
9. Facial hair: Proud, unruly sideburns and a moustache.
10. Body type: Underweight. Chrstan Bale in The Machinist levels of thin.
11. Subculture: nerd/geek, but (despite my clothing choices), I refuse to be called a “hipster”.
12. Species/breed of pets: A dog. She won't tell me what breed she is, and I don't speak Croatian.
I already had a guinea pig, two dachshunds and a dozen chinchllas, and I'm waiting for a thylacine (hurry up with the cloning!).
13. Religion: Roman Catholic, but (to quote a line from FullMetal Alchemist) “I'm secular”.

I think you're our first transmasculine androgyne ever! Congratulations!

I'm from California, too, but I've lived here all my life.

You misspelled your childhood religion! It's pretty evident, judging thereby, that you have abandoned Presbyterianism.

I mean, androgyne is just a specific non-binary gender.

I'm a good speller, but some words are hard.

Yeah . . . there aren't many -terian words, but there are a lot of -tarian words: libertarian, authoritarian, utilitarian, totalitarian, communitarian, Unitarian, etc.
