If you re-read my post I don't think you will see me 'drawing any kind of reliable conclusion', rather than stating what showed up regularly in example charts (the number would have been higher had I included 'probable' but non-diagnosed charts).

If 60 charts is not a reliable basis to be considered, what on Earth are astrologers .
and this forum ..
doing when basing interpretations upon aspects in a single chart?
so far as our forum is concerned
we are an astrological LEARNING forum
so all of us members of this forum are
the vast majority of us being beginners
with little or no experience

research, to be statistically significant
requires statistically significant data samples and/or sampling

A representative statistical sample for the US is roughly 2,386 people.
and so clearly
60 charts is insufficient to draw any reliable conclusion
