In the interest of some fun, let’s do a community experiment. There are many personality assessment tools out there, but only one has shown predictive validity and been scientifically supported through repeated experiments. This is known as the Big 5. It assesses you on 5 traits.
So here’s the idea. Each of us take a short assessment of our personality, then post our results along with our playstyle/profession, preferred region of space(highsec, lowsec, nullsec, wspace), and any other side-professions we engage in. If you are worried about using this for intelligent gathering, roll up an alpha and post on that. I probably should have myself but eh. It’s all in good fun.
Note: You CAN take another’s test if you’d prefer. There are tons on google. But to minimize noise, I’d prefer we all use the same test. There are more accurate tests with 300 questions, but the degree of variation is still fairly low even with shorter assessments. If you use another different one for whatever reason, please post a link to the one you used. Also, you can list more than one under the non-trait categories if you are evenly split. Same for regions.
A short description of the 5 traits follows:
Extraversion is your tendency to put yourself out there, engage with others and overall energy levels. It is a measure of how positive your mood is, typically. Those who are reserved or cautious are typically Introverted.
Agreeableness is how much you like to work with others, or care about others feelings or wellbeing. Agreeable people are compassionate and have trouble detaching from others emotionally.
Conscientiousness is how orderly you are. Those high in this are reliable, organized, and tend to be good at managing their life. They are not messy or scatterbrained.
Neuroticism is your tendency to worry, feel anxiety, or otherwise be affected in a negative way by your experiences. People who are neurotic typically have personality disorders in one form or another.
Final note: I’m also posting this on some other gaming forums. If anyone here plays Overwatch I also posted it there.
