Yes I used the same idea in my essay about the Courts here, with each one having dominant and recessive attributes. Ultimately the system of the Courts is so great because taken together it makes them into complete, fleshed out people. All the attributions in the other cards somehow fit well, and all lead to the same kinds of ideas. But with the Courts there are contradictory attributes and good and bad qualities that really help them take on a life of their own.
