Type 1 is, I assume, the most common one that comes to mind whenever the topic of love is introduced.
Type 2, along with most of the others, can be confusing for people who haven't differentiated between different types of "love." For example, in consideration of type 2 the parent of a mass murderer may abhor what their child is doing time in prison for, but can also still love them as their child. Many people have a hard time understanding this, but I suspect that the parent who visits their child in prison does understand.
The other types should be self-explanatory.
I don't agree that loving others requires loving oneself first since love is an emotion that doesn't have to be reciprocal (although reciprocity certainly makes it more meaningful).
