I want your opinions on video games. For science!

Hey all,

I've made a survey that tells you what type of gamer personality you are. Are you an Immersion Engineer, or an Escape Artist? Do you battle with real people or seclude to the shadows in a world of your own making?

The reason why I made it is to gather research on people's gaming behaviours. This study for my masters thesis at The University of Sydney. Now as a gamer myself (WoW Heroic Tomb of Sargaras Raider), I feel like I have a good grasp of the gaming community, but as with all things, you need to do the research to confirm/disconfirm these assumptions.

The survey itself is looking to explore information about:
• Different aspects of your personality
• What video games you play
• How much you play by yourself and with other people
• The impacts of your video game use on your daily life

You can find a link to the survey and more information here (you might need to disable adblocker):
https://sydneypsy.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9WtE0LKWzw4yvBz

So let me know what you think. Do you think I guessed right? What did I miss?

One more thing. A survey like this is limited, and doesn't give people a voice to add what they want to say. I really encourage open opinions about the video game community and maybe how the news and public have a negative view of video games. Whenever I present, I add the personal messages people have sent me to encourage other researchers to remember that we are people too, not just numbers. Tell me what you think and let me know if I can share your comments in my presentations.

Thank you,
Gavin

Why is strongly agree 1 but strongly disagree a 4? Just felt a bit backwards for me. Other than that, great survey!

The survey was pretty inaccurate with the results lol. It told me that I will always come back to singleplayer games and prefer them over multiplayer. No way! More like the opposite for me.

Definitely an interesting personality quiz. Far better than the last one I took, which ended up telling me that I should seek professional help. Yours didn't do that, so +1 from me.

Oh, and I got Clan Lord and Immersion Engineer.

Probably one of the best personality quizzes I've ever taken, never really had to stop and think to try to dissect a question because I felt it was too ambiguous.

Reclusive Tactician / Masterful Traveler are pretty scary with how right they are

I got Reclusive Tactician and I don't really know why lol. I think of myself as a pretty competitive person. Escape Artist was spot on though

why does everyone get Clan Lord? Also why does it say I enjoy a range of games and get bored easily when I said TF2 is basically the only game I play

I guess because most people on a competitive tf2 forum play competitive tf2 which involves team play and communication
