From the Archives: Myers-Briggs and gaming personalities

This post was originally published on September 13. 2006. 

Wonderland's post on MOGMasters, levelling and Myers-Briggs points out that most gamers fit into INTJ, INTP, ISTJ, or ISTP Myers-Briggs personalities. But only 19% of women are one of these four introverted (I) and thinking (T) Myers-Briggs personalities. 

I'm an INTJ myself - which maybe explains why I'm one of the few women I know who play computer games regularly!

I really would like to see a game developed by non-core gamer personalities - I'll bet it would be refreshing and possibly something my other women friends would actually play! 

I also wonder if games developed by introverted-thinkers are training kids to think and solve problems like INTJs/INTPs/ISTJs/ISTPs? Are games developing a higher percentage of introverted-thinker people? 

The original presentation referred to can be found here: In the Age of Dinosaurs (PDF)

From the Archives: Packin' up and getting ready to go...

This post was originally published August 24. 2006.

Good news is I have a new job! I'm very excited - I'm starting next week! Tomorrow, Friday, is my last day at my current job, and I'll really miss all the people there. It's a small organization so it's neat that I actually did sit down and work with everyone at some point or another. Because tomorrow is a staff barbeque, I spent most of today packing up and getting ready to go... I hope I don't forget anything...
