Subject: [humanmarkup] Base Schema - personality

Hi Everyone,

The hits just keep coming.


This is a ComplexType element with the abstract attribute. It is 
described/defined as Human Personality Type used for personality 
modeling. It does not reference other elements and is not used by 
other elements.

Provisionally, I am not inclined to make additions to the 
description/definition of this element in the Primary Base Schema, 
and that is a decision that I may end up recommending for the entire 
Primary Base Schema on the basis of workability or useability 
purposes. I think that, as with several other elements we have 
discussed and given thought to, this one also needs to be kept down 
to the simplest definition in the Primary Base Schema.

Now, having said that, I am also beginning to think that the 
Secondary Base Schema may want to be broken down into specific 
application area sections where elements like this one can be grouped 
with similar elements (such as emotion in this case) for the purpose 
of enumerating the secondary systems that are part of such elements. 
In this case, we have two personality typing systems, The Enneagram 
and the Meyers-Briggs classification systems which will need to be 
accommodated in that enumeration.

So for now, I am not going to suggest that we include the 
enumeration, or code lists, in the Primary Base Schema, except, of 
course, for the global datatype attributes, which I think we need to 
have in the Primary. Also, I don't want to get ahead of ourselves in 
considering a further breakout or breakdown or hierarchical tree 
structure for such enumerations, but I suspect that is what we will 
want to do in separate documents in order to maximize the operational 
efficiency of applications which use our schemata.
