I identify with quite a few of them: Naturalist, Activist, Caregiver, Enthusiast, Contemplative, and Intellectual.

I'm not too fond of putting people in little boxes and viewing them as if they fit the archetype that box represents. I think we are all far more complex than that and such a point of view threatens to influence us into accepting an oversimplified view of who we are.

I think that's a great list of ways in which we can worship God. But I don't believe Warren was correct in using them as ways to categorize people.

Nevertheless, I think the whole point of that part of the chapter was to show that there is not a "one size fits all". That we are all different and God expects us to worship him and seek friendship with him in those ways that are most in line with who we are, rather than pretending to be something we are not. I definitely agree with that point of view.
