Genie-ality: – the mateship of Geneabloggers and other Genies who share ideas.
From: Rebel Hand
Lorine from the Olive Tree Genealogy blog described several types of Genealogist in 2012. Perhaps you are an Analyzer.
The Analyzer: This genealogist finds a new fact, then studies it and analyzes it carefully before moving on to the next bit of research. They use each fact as a stepping stone to more research. They verify every piece of information they find and they view it critically, thinking about what it actually means and what other clues might be gleaned from it.
Quoting Randy Seaver
“Genealegitimate? (You know what: an adjective referring to a credible family history with cited, documented sources.) I claim the word if not heretofore appropriated and propose to use it extensively in my own blog and anywhere I can throw it.”
Treehouse: The place where one stores one’s family tree information. It could be scraps of paper, a chart, a folder, a database, a website or ???
Scenealogist: A genealogist with a particular interest in ancestral places – from GeniAus

Enumerator: Another guy who couldn’t seem to find your ancestor
