    The appearance of the number 16 is an interesting coincidence, but given that Big 5 includes an additional dichotomy (neuroticism) it couldn't be due to the fact that there are 16 cognitive types, although it might relate to 8 dominant functions divided according to neuroticism.

    It could just be an unrelated coincidence which may have manifested due to the symmetry of the number 16.

    Here's my hypothesis about the 4 clusters mentioned in the article:

    These types relate to how society is constructed.

    Average and Self-centred types are primarily consumers. Average are focused on the media, discussing celebrities etc. whereas Self-centred types are more focused on physical pleasure.

    Reserved types are the dutiful types who study and work, keeping more to themselves.

    Role-models are the opinionated types who discuss politics, morality, society etc. and are often liberal. Ideas focused but moreso the ideas which society promotes through the media.

    --

    Now, let's link that to the needs of a human.

    A person needs to eat and enjoy life, they need to be social, they need to be productive, and they need some governing belief system.

    There are other ways to model a person, but that's the model I derive from the clusters.

    (This could be linked to cognitive functions but the corresponding dichotomies don't correlate nicely with what the functions would seem to be.)
