Gerald commented on my blog about other researchers adding more categories to Bartle's. I think this would definitely help with more accuracy on getting the right gamer type and it being a good description. More categories break it down even more.
Aleta commented on my blog about giving a gaming type quiz and more of a personality quiz to see the comparison. I think this would be great if only I had more hours to analyze the results. I feel like I would never have enough time to look at the results and figure out how I wanted to use the information.
Ali talked about how she didn't agree with her results. I find this interesting becasue I took 3 gaming quizzes and got the same results on all 3. Kiang had a great description of what each meant outside of the gaming world as well as in the gaming world. I agreed with his description of achiever for outside the gaming world but I don't know about in it. I don't really play any games because I don't have time. I only have one one my phone. It is a puzzle game and usually this is my preference. I like to play alone becasue that is when I have the free time. I wonder if my game type would really fit in the gaming world? It is hard to tell at this point. I guess I need to play more games.
I am in total agreement with Mariah. I did the same thing she did with taking multiple quizzes. She talked about the difficulty she had in answering some questions. I found the same to be true. There were some quiz questions I just picked an answer because I wasn't sure. I guess that is why there are so many questions so that a few questions you don't know probably don't really matter. I liked how at the end she summed it up with the fact that people learn differently. I think that is really what this week was all about. Differentiation would be the educational term for it and she is right that it is not new. It is just a different way of thinking about differentiation through gaming.
