Probablity Statistics

I am creating a psychology profile builder.

I have created a list of questions with each on answered yes or no.

I have then attributed a probability to each personality type from -1 to 1

I want to combine the answer questions to come up with a probability for each personality type. We have over 1000 questions in the database.

e.g. I enjoy spending my time at home? If you answer yes -0.7 of being outgoing, 0.6 of being dutiful, 0.9 calm, 0.9 domestic, 0.7 habitual, 0.9 homely.

The second question may then be I often oversleep,Answer Yes 0.7 lazy, 0.55 dutiful.

Therefore if you answer both questions as a yes - you have 0.6 probability of dutiful and 0.55 of being dutiful.

How would be best to formulate a combination of all these probabilities. I feel like averages wouldn't work over a potential lifetime of questions?
