Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What's the main personality type? How much are they all experts in a specific stack-related domain? To what varying degrees are they affiliated with the official company behind StackExchange sites, if at all?

Just (very) curious...

Hi Matt, all (basically) answerable questions, but I'm wondering what you're trying to learn by asking this that you can't get from a cursory look around? – Tim Post Dec 18 '13 at 11:29
They're all very strange :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Dec 18 '13 at 11:29
I only hang around for the mythical Loyalty Bonus. If you've been here for long enough then you must get a bonus. – JonW Dec 18 '13 at 11:32
main personality type is obsessive compulsive downvoter (oops I am one of these, you see!) – gnat Dec 18 '13 at 11:43
@gnat You ain't got nothing on some people. – fredley Dec 18 '13 at 11:47
Unicorns and hats. Oh, and cache. Lots of cache. – Shadow Wizard Dec 18 '13 at 12:08
@fredley all right, 337:27 looks respectable. In my defense, at Programmers I've got reasonably decent 21,814 downvotes (about 2/3 of which are on deleted posts) – gnat Dec 18 '13 at 12:16
We are free-wheeling free-hand-circle-drawing unicorn people. – Ben Lee Dec 18 '13 at 21:06

-1: Single line answers which provide no context are frowned upon almost everywhere on stack exchange. – Mark Booth Dec 18 '13 at 12:13
Laconically delightful. – Andrew Barber Dec 18 '13 at 15:14
While this link might answer the question, link-only answers are frowned upon on stackoverflow. It's better to also summarize the contents of the link here as well. I'd recommend copying and pasting the profiles of all 95,000 or so meta users into your answer. That should give the OP a good understanding. – Ben Lee Dec 18 '13 at 21:04
Is there an echo around here? – Mark Booth Dec 18 '13 at 23:35
Are we in the grand canyon or something? I think there's an echo around here. – Ben Lee Dec 19 '13 at 4:40
This is a nice answer but you have no sense for anthropology..... ;) – matt Jan 25 '14 at 12:44
