We all care about different things. How MUCH we care about those things differs greatly from individual to individual based largely on one's personality type.
On a scale of 0-5 what are some examples of various things you are passionate about...or completely indifferent to?

5 - vegetable gardening
4 - the books of J. R. R. Tolkien
3 - frugal lifestyle considerations
2 - global warming (I care about it, but merely thinking about it makes me feel despair and like giving up. We're too late...it's hopeless...)
1 - oxford commas
0 - staying current with clothing fashions

5. My health and the desire to not only live as long as possible, but also to be able to really "Live" while I am am alive. (My family also ranks in this group too)
4. The smell of fresh cut southern yellow pine and the hum of the table saw as I craft a fine piece of furniture.
3. The City I work for as it is more then a JOB for me and more of a calling to do everything I can to help the place. This includes learning everything I can to have the understanding and knowledge to make the best possible suggestions and provide guidance to those I work with.
2. Sports. With the exception of Hockey, I don't watch sports. Sure I am in 5 fantasy football leagues this year, but it is more about the numbers and the competition with friends than it is how well Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers does on any given Sunday.
1. What people think of me. At one point of my life, this ranked very high. But I have come to the realization that I don't give much of a F*^#@ unless it is someone who matters an enormous amount to me, and then it is likely that they like me for who I am anyways.
0. Watching TV.

I can't do this. My brain is so logical at work it can't do this kind of stuff during off hours. I don't care about any of it, even the stuff that's really important to me.

I don't necessarily agree with the ranking and/or specific cheeses, but I greatly appreciate that you have a specified cheese passion ranking.
