Ultimate Quiz For Gamers! What Type Of Gamer Are You? - Quiz

Put yourself in the mindset of a gamer. If you do not normally play video games, it? S ok, answer the questions as you would if you were playing more traditional games. Answer as honestly as possible. When debating between 2 answers, pick the one which rings most true for you.


You May Get

Explorers

Explorers love to explore and wander. In the game world, Explorers want to map the entire area and discover all of its hidden areas. In the classrooms, Explorers love to amass large quantities of knowledge. Their sense of achievement comes from knowing more facts (often obscure ones) and finding secret shortcuts or mnemonics. They love to demonstrate their knowledge to others. I often ask my Explorers to “map out” a new unit of curriculum a couple of weeks before the rest of the class. Can they scout out where the pitfalls might be, and where others might be confused? Can they blaze a trail for the rest of us? Explorers are the closest to what we consider to be the ideal “academics”: those who value knowledge for knowledge’s sake. Remember, Explorers love to “figure out” games. For them, fun comes from discovery. They are collectors of knowledge and little-known facts. They enjoy teaching others.

Socializers

Socializers are motivated by the desire to form meaningful connections and relationships with others. In the game world, the Socializers are often the connectors, who help to form questing parties and seem to know everyone online at any given moment. Socializers often form clans, which are groups of like-minded gamers, and when a particular game gets old, Socializers will simply switch games, keeping the clan intact. The game is simply a backdrop for the chatting and interactions that are the true draw. Socializers judge their accomplishments by how many friends, or how many followers, they have. How many of us know participants for whom the classroom is simply a backdrop for networking? Remember, Socializers enjoy meaningful social interaction with others. The point of playing is to make friends. The game is simply a backdrop. They enjoy recognition of their followers, contacts, influence.

Griefers

In the online gaming world, griefers willfully damage and vandalize other people’s creations. They take pleasure in the turmoil they cause in the game world, and in the damage they wreak on others. In the classroom, those participants often are the first ones to see if they can “hack” the system, and are often willfully oblivious to the consequences to the community. However, Griefers are often your risk-takers, the ones who are used to starting over with nothing, over and over again — because they’re always being killed — and who don’t mind being wrong. They are likely to have a growth mindset, rather than a fixed one, and if you can draw them into the classroom community, they can have a positive influence on others. Remember, Griefers value knowledge for its applications. For them, fun comes from beating opponents and winning competitions. The point of playing is to beat the game, to win.

Achievers

By contrast with Explorers, Achievers love to gain levels, badges, and awards. In the game world, Achievers gain a sense of accomplishment by being the first to complete something, or by being one of the only ones to win a trophy or reward. They are often very motivated to “beat the game” and move on. In the classroom, Achievers are often most concerned with completing everything in the syllabus as a measure of their achievement. They want to know the quickest, fastest, or shortest way to the prize. They are often detail-oriented, and I can count on the Achievers in my classroom to help move the others along, simply for the thrill of succeeding. Remember, Achievers seek to improve power and status. For them, fun comes from points and leveling up. The point of playing is to master the game. They enjoy recognition of their achievements.
