comment Personality that is loved extremely or hated extremely (word request)
If a person said that, everyone would think the person is chatting shit, trying to become hip and trendy in the same way people pretend to be bisexual or pansexual for attention. Nobody would take that statement seriously if a person said it. By a person proclaiming that they are like marmite, they are trying to show that they are a fascinating and complex character, thus associating themselves with a multitude of positive traits (opinionated, provocative, intelligent, frank, unique, confident, extroverted etc). There's lots of implicit meaning and hidden intentions in spoken english language.

comment Personality that is loved extremely or hated extremely (word request)
Yes to both questions. You don't understand me. I'm from Britain so I am familiar with how the word marmite is used from a cultural standpoint. Certain adjectives mean practically the same thing, but are more extreme than others, such as big, large and humungous. All three words describe a big size, but each word is more (or less) extreme than the other. The same applies to the word marmite. The word marmite is a weak word. If someone says that they are like marmite, the listener will not infer from that statement that they polarise opinion and make others cry or obsessed with them.

People don't love or hate marmite to the same extent they love or hate a person.

I'd prefer not to use the word marmite because it doesn't convey the contrasting extremity of the opinions. If I say "I'm like marmite people either love or or hate me" it doesn't make the person any more unique than anyone else.

comment What is a word that means when people only contribute or speak when they have something of merit to say or add?
taciturn. adjective. (of a person) reserved or uncommunicative in speech; saying little. If I said a person was taciturn in a conversation about politics or relationships, what impression would that give in someone's head?

@HotLicks ??? You're making no sense. I could have used the word quiet or shy if I wanted to convey someone who was timid.
