    I stand by my personality... and my other 10 as well :P

    Well Aries seems to be an exception to the rule. At least in the Introverted/Extroverted area. Are there any others like that?

    Supposedly people that would fall under this are Ghandi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Carrie Fisher, Billy Crystal and Robert Burns (one of my favorite poets actually).

    A "Counselor" supposedly rare...

    I'm along in that younger generation... And I concur with DJ, he's right.

    I haven't taken the test yet, but anyone telling me I was an introvert, would have just invalidated the entire survey

    I am not only an extrovert, but I have no concept of what "shy" even feels like, and the notion of being "embarrassed" by something is an affliction others suffer eh, not me.

    I do enjoy meditating though.

    What a surprise that so far all of us are introverted!! Think that's a given considering the hobby.

    Don't want to be the odd man out here but I haven't actually ever played a boardgame... *BUT*.. I do know someone who is pretty keen to teach me, and so it might be interesting, with the results of the test, to see if I actually do get into it. Gawd I may even be good at it. I shall let you know.

    It's a very interesting article and idea Brian, thanks

    Thanks for that perspective. That is exactly the type of response I was looking for here. Observations like this are very helpful in the process of understanding ourselves better.

    I think this is a great idea and a good thing you are doing for the wargaming community. As a younger wargamer (18) might I make an observation about why kids probably arent interested in wargaming.
    First most think that it is to slow, in our fast paced culture they want something that they can either do quickly and see results or has to be done at a high speed with not much thinking.
    Second the culture that I and kids are growing up in is a image and visual based culture alot of kids my age and younger take one look at a wargame and think ug thats not fun to look at and just pass by. I think that is sad and is the fault of our culture. For kids these days it has to be an aquired taste in graphics.
    Third alot of younger people just dont want to learn or do anything that will require some learning or thought to do. They would rather play the mindless shooting games that require little to no thought. It just comes down to people being lazy and not wanting to have to apply themselves to a hobby.
    Finally I think alot of people look at wargaming as (no offesene) a bunch of old guys sitting around talking about the war and playing a boring slow board game. I know thats not true but thats how alot of people I think sterotype it.
    I hope that helps maybe explain a perspective from a younger generation in regards to wargaming. And if anyone has any question about the younger generation and how to get us into wargaming or anything like ask and I'll do my best to help you understand.

    Good article - I like the pedantic and detail-oriented part.
    I'm curious about what the results will show, whether a personality trend emerges or not. From gut feeling I would say no but it's just an uninformed opinion.

    It seems we discovered wargaming the same way, started with modeling and went to Squad Leader because it looked cool.

    I'm a Introverted, sensing, thinking, judgeing personality type which makes me an Inspector. The description is pretty dead on for me. Almost scary.

    Not sure what the numbers mean but mine are 44 25 50 56.

    Now you got me thinking about dusting off the ol' ASL rulebook...
