More on the 7 point scale

Some time ago I wrote about my love of seven point scales for measuring things (especially human attitudes). In the original article I mentioned John Ousterhout's scale for hiring people and Kinsey's scale of human sexuality.

I've come across a few more seven pointers:

1. In The God Delusion Dawkins presents a seven point scale for measuring how much you are a theist or atheist.

2. Then there's the Bristol Stool Scale describing the seven types of human faeces

3. And finally, The International Banana Association's ripeness scale.

Got any more?

I wonder if we should replace the lower end of the Ouster scale with the Bristol scale.
