    The Bartle Test is a well-known test for gamers that identifies you as 1 of 4 'types' of gamers.

    I'm curious what the general makeup of the forum is.

    Take the test here

    And then post your result in the poll :D

    More info on the test for those interested:

    Socializer suits me pretty well. :p

    Your gamerDNA is:
    Socializer

    The Socializer motto:
    "No friend undiscovered!"

    Description:
    It's not what you do, but who you know, how you are known and who loves you. People with high Socializer scores enjoy interacting with other people, forming bonds and finding cooperative solutions to the challenges within the virtual world.

    Interesting test, though I'll admit... some of the questions, I wanted to pick both answers. >_>; Not sure how much that skewed my results. Especially the "What's more important to you: A) the uniqueness of the features, and game mechanics, or B) the quality of roleplaying". The latter I can create for myself if there are things missing, so I picked the first one. But then the test made it sound like not picking B would mean I don't care about RP, which isn't true, but... aaaah! *brain asplodes*

    I got Explorer, for what it's worth. Broken down, it was 87% Explorer, 67% Socializer, 33% Achiever, and 20% Killer.

    I think the low Killer score was mostly cause the bulk of the "killing" questions had to do with PvP. Regardless, I think it's a pretty fitting description haha.

    Really liked the design of the results page, by the way. As a completely off-topic note. XD

    So for some reason it can't retrieve my results. I thought they stored on your account page?

    Luckily I dled them.

    Not the biggest fan of that quiz, the questions are kind of outdated for MMOs and the logic is a bit one-step, but my results actually fit me quite well, I find.

    Some of these questions could really use elaborating on :p.

    Like the 'know how to get things' VS 'know how to find things.' I have a hard time divorcing the latter from the former. :p

    The test itself seems to skew kinda wierdly, too. Like just because you're a soldier and you like killing monsters doesn't necessarily mean that you're into PvP.

    On this, I'm 80% Explorer, 53% Achiever, 47% Socialiser, 20% Killer.

    One is how to get it, secondhand is ok, which means having contacts or making contacts to aquire something. Socialiser - or maybe Achiever.

    The other is going to the source to get it. Explorer or Killer could both apply. Guess Achiever too, all depending.

    I find it interesting that I self identify as an explorer, but when I took the test I'm very much a Killer. As a result I am creating a new category of Badass which combines both the killer and explorer. :)

    Your gamerDNA is:

    The Explorer motto: "No stone unturned!"

    I was a bit disappointed in the questions. They did not seem well tuned for MMOs or for PvE.

    Achiever is fairly apropos. Explorer as a secondary fits well too, as I do prefer large groups for raiding and pvp — I really enjoy playing with coordinated teams, but not much of a socializer or small group player. I like to go off solo or with the SO, exploring and doing achievements and even farming when there's no big team stuff going on.

    [​IMG]

    The Achiever motto: "No goal unfinished!"

    Description:
    Best, first and most are the favorite adjectives of the Achiever. They love comparison not only against others, but also with themselves. They enjoy setting goals, surpassing previous performances and hitting new milestones. They tend to have lots of high scores, badges, trophies and other concrete evidence of their successful endeavors--and they love it if someone notices these. However many enjoy the quiet satisfaction of knowing they simply did better than most.

    Secondary:
    Achiever Explorers are interested in the PvE aspect of a game more than anything else. The AE thrives as a solo adventurer, counting coup with each new destination and discovery, poking into every corner of a map and toying with each nuance of a game mechanic. AEs prefer not to be hampered by a group and usually find PvP to be more an annoyance than a feature.

    These kind of tests are always hard for me because I could care less about either answer for many of the questions.

    Achiever: "No goal unfinished".
    73% Achieveer, 60% Socializer, 53% Killer, and 20% Explorer.

    "Achiever Socializers appreciate groups, clans or guilds for than just pure social fun. An AS relishes the camaraderie of cooperation within a top flight team, savoring the renown gained from successfully pitting themselves against the grand-challenges of a virtual world and attaining goals that cannot be reached as an individual."
