Myers Briggs and Gaming

Hey look, it’s my personality type!

I’m extremely interested in the idea of defining myself via a defined personality type. Of course everyone is unique and different however being able to put yourself in a similar group will allow you to get along with others easier and even help you to further your own path in life. The Myers Briggs Personality Test (try saying that 3 times) is essentially a complex and detailed way of defining your personality simply by asking you questions.

I bring up this interesting concept as when I play games, specifically role playing or class based ones, I like to pick the character that I would most likely be in that scenario. According to the test I am an INFJ, or an Idealist/Advocate. By doing some more research into this according to various people who have studied Fantasy/RPG tropes my personality type would most likely become a mage of some sort or at least heavily involve myself in magic, makes sense I suppose.

If you haven’t tried it out yet I would encourage you to give the test a shot and maybe it will help you to make decisions in your gaming time easier, it certainly has helped me! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
