Big Crowds Bug

It seems kudos had a bit of a design flaw. If you invite bob out for a beer and he is entertaining, he has a +10 entertainment effect on you.
If you invite bob AND dave out, and maybe dave has a +10 IQ effect on you, bob STILL has the same effect.
It stands to reason that with the three of you, the entertainment value of bob needs to be diluted more. In other words, if you really want to be entertained, hang out just with bob. if you invite other people too, the effect won't be so strong. I just fixed this, as I revamped the code to accommodate up to 2 personality type per NPC.
I also need to check that your avatar gets bored if it does the same things too often, because I'm not sure that is true either (yet).
