Short description of your type
Harmonic relationships based on trust are very important in your life. This applies to your family and friends first
of all. Trust, kindness and reliability are magic words to you. Their meaning goes beyond familiar faces. Even the
choice for your computer was most likely based on a recommendation or a test result from a renowned
institution. If service, the purchased technology and your decision prove to be right, the brand has secured a
loyal customer. Once you lose faith in a brand it may be impossible to gain you back as a customer.
Your technology has to fulfill its purpose in the first place. This can be the perfect home entertainment solution
or the reliable execution of demanding graphics processing. What exactly is inside your PC and how the
components work together do not matter much to you. It has to be absolutely reliable. You have a good eye for
details. You notice even the smallest mistake such as visual artifacts caused by a faulty graphics card.
You are not an early adopter. When it comes to new technology you would rather wait until the first bugs are
fixed before you decide to purchase. The same applies to the BETA phase of a new game. It comes too early for
You mostly appreciate your computer in its role as an entertainment and communication system. State-of-theart
technology is also of interest to you because it provides you with faster and easier access to your community.
Quick and good communication strengthens the sense of togetherness. You probably use Skype, messenger
programs and enjoy playing in coop-mode with in-game communication.
One of your biggest skills is reliability. If you are a gamer, you are particularly interested in games where you
succeed through endurance, methodical learning and reliable work. Also in the real world your key features are
to be there if needed, pleasant-natured and high sense for responsibility.
Like everything else you do, your work is very diligent, systematic and sometimes masterful down to a single
detail. You actively cultivate virtual or real communities, e.g. forums, maybe even as admin or Webmaster. In
this role you are also very helpful and answer even newbie-questions. After all, everyone started off small.
You are characterized by empathy, a sophisticated sense for you own feelings as well as the feelings and needs
of the people you help and support.
If you are a gamer, you enjoy games with scenarios very close to reality. You don't enjoy abstract fantasy
worlds. You might enjoy LAN parties where you can meet your fellow gamers. You have been playing your
favorite games for several years now.
Characteristic for you are:
1. You are sensitivity to the needs of others
Although you hide this sometimes, you are a person with a highly developed sense for your own needs and
feelings and also of others. When you notice that somebody needs support, you do not close your eyes but
provide a helping hand to be there. This not only helps the one who needs it but also gives you energy and joy
for life. In games like World of Warcraft or Diablo you would most likely chose a class with healing capabilities.
2. Your pursuit for cooperation
There are different methods to influence and shape cooperation. Your natural authority lives on awareness,
sensitivity, focus, courage and creativity. You practice what you preach.
If you are a gamer, you probably enjoy MMOs or MOBA games like DotA or LoL where many players are involved
at the same time. First-Person-Shooters without any team modes are less appealing to you. You love to try
yourself in different roles and are a wanderer between different worlds. It is possible that people who know your
"civil" lifestyle would not think you are capable of this transformation or at least they would be surprised.
3. Your endurance
By habits and your day-to-day rituals you bring stability to your life and the life of others. You create anchor
points and orderliness in your area of responsiveness. You are aware that most of the time greatness comes with
small things and challenges. To succeed in the end, every small step is important. In order to live this day-byday
you need predictability and planning security to a certain extent. You probably have a fixed schedule for
your PC behavior. For example you check your emails first, after that you read the news before you login to
Facebook. If you are a gamer, you might have a fixed and regular playtime schedule. You are much better able
to use gaming to relax than other types.
