Hello guys and girls!

For a while I've been thinking about sharing it on this forum. Some of you might have already filled in tests like this one. But I'm not sharing it for any kind of research, I'm just curious of your results!

This test is based on the Bartle's taxonomy of player types that some of you might have heard of because it's a very old test from 1996. It consists of 30 questions so it shouldn't take much time.

And don't forget to share your results! (if you'd like to of course)

Mine is:
You are 60% Socialiser

You are also:
60% Explorer
60% Killer
20% Achiever
Madcobra

    I will just copy paste my previous score.

    You are 73% Explorer

    You are also:
    53% Achiever
    40% Socialiser
    33% Killer

    Some of the questions are just weird and I can't really answer them,otherwise the socialiser part would be even lower.:P

    I actually have no idea where did the Achiever part come from since I'm hardly an achievement person,I just like to set my own goals and then try to reach them over time w/o being competetive.

    Some of those questions had no choice I would've taken, so I picked the ones with question marks because it made it seem like I was answering while shrugging my shoulders xD

    Yeah, that's what i miss from this test too. But i think it's rather a preference test that doesn't necessarily need to have many options, since many options wouldn't give much more exact results either. I also chose the options that were more sympathetic for me based on what i usually do in games in general especially in MMO's in the endgame that doesn't reflect what i do in certain MMO's or other games. But this test is just for fun. ^^

    Debating the answers is the most fun part for me. For example, the question about whether you'd prefer to be noticed by your personality or your gear:
    "Well, I want to be noticed by my gear, but I'd like people to stay because of my personality. (Not simply to use me.)"
    "No way, my personality is terrible! I don't want to be noticed for that!"
    "I want to role-play as a silent mound of dirt and grass...would that be considered fabulous gear or personality?"

    Yep, going into details would help in giving more exact results but then the test would last hours. That's why these short tests use generalized phrases as options.

    But if you want more exact results, you will have to fill in the test several times and take the average of their results. There are actually more than 30 questions in it but they are randomized. There are also similar questions and answers but their approaches are slightly different.

    For example the question you mentioned is the same as the "Would you rather be: Popular or Wealthy?" question in a different combination. The idea behind this is to make people think of different situations. Like if they prefer wealth over gear then they will choose that next time.

    That's why i got 20% on the Achiever at first, because it depends on the situation and how much i like the game. I like to set goals that are reasonable for me, and i prefer 1-2 time challenges over repeating something 1000 times. But that again depends on whether repeating something can keep me entertained, and fair competitive pvp usually does that. Probably that's why i got a high percentage on the Killer.
