    So essentially, I have decided on a spectrum to represent debaters


    I will go first. I am lean-right.

    Yep. You are very source-oriented. I remember you saying that I am somehow better than you at "Burden of Proof Content-Based or Manipulation of the Resolution", but you are a living example that shows that sources are needed.

    And, I believe, Professional trollers like Imabench must be far-right.

    Your source of video is only authleft(communism/socialism). Remember, equal rights, BLM and LGBTQ movements are still left, lib left I think.

    Funny enough, I am also libcenter in the political compass test.

    The leftier you are, your argument sound more like an infographic. 

    The rightier you are, the more insane you sound to non-debaters.

    What if you are both contents- and structure-oriented? :O

    Then you take the average. Radical centrists still exist.

    I would say that Oromagi is a radical centrist in your spectrum.

    I would say I am definitely more structure based. The thing I do is I even go beyond it because I find the holes in the structure and exploit even that, sometimes by literally forfeiting a Round for strategic alteration of the debate's structure.

    Thoughts?
    I don't see why the two are mutually exclusive. I could just make a line with any two traits at either end but if if the two are unrelated to eachother then little in the way of a meaningful result can be obtained. Say for example that I make a line looking at the "reddishness" versus the "greenishness" of colors according to their color decimal code. Highly different colors would appear side by side, such as black and white or brown and pink, while other colors that are different but more similar to eachother than those examples would appear further apart such as in the case of blue and magenta.

    Similarly in the case of this op you would have people that focus highly on both (who would generally be considered the best debators) in the same spot in the line as people that put little effort into either and just spout a stream of consciousness (generally considered thr worst debators).

    When you do both, you are considered a radical centrist.

    Using a lot of sources doesn't take away from ones obsession with rigid structure in debates. I am not really structure-oriented but I am more oriented towards that than fixating over reliable sources or many of them.
