    Default kind

    Consider this sentence:

    He isn't my kind.

    Does this mean he isn't the kind of person I like or the kind of person I am (he isn't the same kind as me)?

    Without more context, I'd go for the first meaning.

    Everything is fine. I just thought there was no need to log in.
