Most methodical or astonishing characters

As part of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz, this website has had volunteers rate 2,000 characters on a 100 point scale from "methodical" to "astonishing". This page lists the 25 characters whose average ratings were the farthest to either side. Because the scale is bipolar, it is reversable. For example, a rating of 1/100 for "methodical" is the same as 100/100 for "astonishing". See the documentation for more information about how these ratings were collected.
