What kind of person are you?

This sounds as a very blunt question to ask, doesn't it? Anyway, what kind of person are you?

Ok, let's define the question a bit further.

In chapter 2 of his book Who's Mark Twain? Mark Twain defined the criteria he used to find out whether his books would be successful or not.

He claimed that the general public could be divided into 14 different groups of people, where we would all fit it.

Self-study activity:
Watch the video and note down as many categories as you can.

I think the activity is suitable for Básico 2 students, although they will not be able to understand the fourteen different categories Twain mentions, but they will manage to understand quite a few.

You can self-correct the activity with the transcript here.
