Just so everyone knows: I'm still collecting survey responses. The survey will be open all weekend as we creep back and forth between forums and The Lost Shores events.

Wow very nice poll, too bad I'm not at home to tell my charactarer' s personality! ^_^

Arquenya, I had another participant who had the same issue. If you'd like you can check this information when you get home and either PM me with the updated info and some identifiers so I know which survey response to answer. :] Thanks for the help either way!

Very well put together survey, and it would be very interesting to see the results when you are all finished, if that would be at all possible! :)

Yes! I'm going to try to get the results out to the community. I'm going to be using the results from this survey to write several [potential] conference papers, so I won't have all the analyses at once, but I'll revisit periodically with interesting tidbits. The closest paper is due December 10th, so while I can't share the paper here while it's in review, I can post up the statistic results so we can all oogle them together. Thanks for your help!

Any idea when this report would be er, published? Would be an interesting read.

assuming I can get through the data, I'm hoping to submit it to the Foundations of Digital Gaming conference this December. Ideally the paper will be "accepted" by early next year. I will make sure to keep you guys updated, but there will be a lull before the paper comes out.

Just finished it; definitely thought-provoking.

One quibble, though: some of the paired personality metrics didn't quite mesh. For example, one asked about "I am anxious. I am easily upset." Those two things don't go hand in hand. One can be generally fretful without being unstable. :)

An interesting claim! The player personality questions are actually derived from the "Ten Item Personality Inventory" (TIPI) which is based on the "Big Five" or "Five Factor Model" of personality measurement. I'm using it in this survey as it is the shortest (less attrition!) and it has been proven as a valid set of questions for many years, but I do appreciate your input!
