    Title. It would be very convenient to check someones main kintype(s) while in chat via the profile popup you get by clicking on their profile pic, rather than digging through their profile to find their kintype(s).

    For what reason would you need to be able to see it, without simply asking the person you are curious about directly, what their kintype is?

    While I agree this could be a useful feature, the risks outweigh the benefits. There are many people who don't have a "dominant kintype" and who would instead decide to list all their kintypes in this area. This will result in an overflow in the mini-profile popup. Additionally, it's rather easy to view the profile for this information or to ask the user. Our "primary identity" field does pretty much what you're requesting, but is less specific.
