"The Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology is a series of questions and an accompanying scoring formula that classifies players of multiplayer online games into categories based on their gaming preferences."

Absolutely sure that most people here (this being Eve) will be killers of some form. But just for s**ts and giggles, lets run a little experiment. Take the test, reveal your score, and then say how you actually play Eve and see how relevant it all is.

Are empire dwellers gonna be socializer based? What about nullsec pvpers? Mission runners? Traders?

Take the test here

And, as for me...

Killer: 73
Explorer: 60
Socializer: 53
Achiever: 13

And I'm a wormhole resident/pvper. So killer/explorer is pretty much spot on. Very Happy

I'm an explorer.

Explorer 76%
Achiever 47%
Socializer 47%
Killer 40%

I don't really have a set way of playing Eve, just kind of muddle around.

As a minsanthropic loner, I'd say that fits pretty well.

Killer 95%

Test wasn't geared towards me as I like market pvp too.

Togh test, as it often offers two controversal/debatable choices put into one answer.
Either way,
Close, but not quite explaining.

Things I do in eve are industry and low sec pvp. Well, those are the things I pretend to do, mostly I get drunk, talk pish to my mates and clutter up the forums.

Funny that it gave me such a low score for achiever/reward driven, eve is the only mmorpg I play so every time it asked if I'd rather take the XP or something else I thought 'meh, I'll have the skills one of these years so why worry about XP?'

Posted - 2010.10.07 21:43:00 - [16]

Killer: 87
Socializer: 53
Explorer: 47
Achiever: 13

When ever I take this test Explorer is usually pretty close second after Killer, but for some reason Socializer came up higher this time.

The stats on the right hand side were interesting..

Reward Driven -100% Laughing
Competitive 88% YARRRR!!
Sadistic 7% Twisted Evil Shocked .. actually that's probably low by EVE standards

Pretty much true:
E :: I was doing exploration when it took hours to scan anything down, and I spend a lot of time in my Cheetah and Prowler.
A :: I must achieve if I want to fly a carrier someday. Tengu is next on my shopping list though.
K :: I like to bait One-man-corp ninja salvagers/can flippers cuz I know their buds (most likely) ain't gonna show up. Other than that, like everyone else when out there alone, I run from roaming gankers.
S :: I've sort of been antisocial ever since I joined a noob corp, and they kicked me when they got war decced for being "a liability". Funny thing is, the bully corp was a bunch of cool guys, and after talking with them, they left me completely alone based upon the fact that I was essentially too wimpy for them to bother with. Those guys never podded us during our wars, UNTIL my corp started podding them, then they threw out the Marquis of Queensbury Rules. In the long run, I was kicked. After all that, I figured I'd just solo explore.

If you are in a gate camp, and you momentarily see a Prowler, Hound, or Cheetah jump in, then local says "So long suckers!!", that would be my main toon.

I am up for trying anything. When I was in Primary. I was top killer in my corp, but they were all mostly industrialists, and I was whoring friend and foe KM's in Fleet Battles with my Phobos and the Warp disruption Bubbles I was running. Cool
The best kills are the free kills lol.

Lots of crap about fantasy, makes sense given the test's origins though.

I could have answered either way on everyone of the questions depending on which of my characters i was playing..

actually to most of them I'd anser I don't care.

I have no interest in either having something first or knowing something someone else doesn't know .

I like to have things and know things ... I'll either kill or make an alliance depending whether I'm trying to collect KMs or trying to maximize isk making

Herp derp, I'm a special snowflake!

Actually, I agree. The Bartle test is a self-evident crock, and the questions are bothersome to answer. It's like they want you to choose between a delicious candy bar and a delicious ice cream cone.

I like to dabble in everything, and my priorities change daily, even from one moment to the next.

But I've never killed anyone (died quite a bit in null though), so does that make a killer at all? I guess its gotta be the t2 traders i mess with....

horrible quiz is horrible tbh.

Mostly because generic wow question is generic. Otherwise because answers are too stupid.

Johnny no friends cos I killed them all apparently Shocked

but it does in fact mirror the fact that 3 previous toons racked up approx
4.5k kills

Posted - 2010.10.08 02:55:00 - [27]

Let's see:
73% Explorer
73% Killer
40% Achiever
13% Socializer

hmm... too much killer this time, guess that's eve influence YARRRR!!

On the side note:
-19% Reward-Driven
+63% Exploratory
-24% Thoughtful
-100% Social
+63% Competitive
+24% Physical

ofc, I'd rather kill people than talk to them (not that I have much time for either), but -100 social is a bit too low I think... not that I care, it will hardly be my problem anyway ugh

Strangely enough, I mostly play market & industry, ocasionally telling corpmates how IMO some stuff should be done. Guess I should try finding myself a WH or something on spare alt Rolling Eyes
