How many kinds of people are there?

There are 2 kinds of people, Boris Karloff fans and Bela Lugosi fans.

There are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary and those who don't understand binary.

There are 2 kinds of people. Those who believe there are 2 kinds of people and those who don't.

Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data

I think Winston Smith has it. My usual formulation is as follows: There are two kinds of people: People who use dichotomies and people who don't.

Further, I would say that there are two kinds of men: Men who shave, and men who don't. There are two kinds of men who shave: men who use after-shave, and men who don't. There are two kinds of men who use after-shave: Men who use Old Spice and men who switch brands every few months until they come back to Old Spice.

The second paragraph is not original. I read it somewhere a long time ago. However, it comports with my experience.

I would modify David Manley's analysis to read as follows:

There are two kinds of people: People who believe that they can extrapolate accurately from incomplete data, and people who do not.

There are 1 kind of people; those who index from 0, and those who don't.

As the psychopath said, there are two kinds of people : Me and seven billion victims.
