Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology

This is the original Bartle Test, a player personality analyzer that classifies you as an explorer, socializer, killer or achiever. Our data includes over 200,000 of the original responses that Erwin Andreasen recorded between 1996 to 2006. Originally designed for MUD (multi-user dungeon) participants, it remains relevant to new virtual worlds and MMORPGs. Scoring is interesting and entertaining. The original wording of all questions has not been changed except to modernize certain terms such as replacing MUD with the more encompassing MMORPG.
