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?
