I feel strongly that the biggest thing that needs to be changed is switching the labeling of instances *away* from identity and to *interest*.

(E.g, from "I am a: gamer" to "I like: games")

That (imo) would go a long way towards making the choice of instance feel less overwhelming—that way, you're not picking a defining trait, just listing something you like.

(If it'd be helpful for me to sign up for an account at the link and re-post this, let me know)
