What do the YouTube channel types do and mean?

I just set up a YouTube account, and there are six types of channels. I was wondering what each does and means for my account.(You Tuber, director, musician, guru, comedian, and reporter). I know, I sound like a noob and this question was probably really dumb. I'm sorry, don't hate me for it. Thanks for you help.

    The types are used to obviously describe the type of channel you will be making assuming your channel falls under one of those categories. Director would be used for someone who makes original videos that are like mini movies.

    The titles mean nothing since they are self proclaimed and anyone can pick anything they want to be - it's not like YT assigns them or anything.
