I am reminded of my latest sf reading, "The Affinities" by Robert 
Charles Wilson. A personality test can detect which of 22 "affinities" 
you belong to, and help you find people you fit with. Imagine being in a 
group where people naturally understand you, trust and trustworthiness 
is easy... It is an intelligent take on prosocial sorting.
