Welcome to the Jungian Gamer.

You may have heard of the Meyers-Briggs type indicator test, commonly abbreviated as MBTI. This personality test, although far from perfect, can be helpful in a myriad of different ways. It can help us understand a person’s actions and justifications, as well as their flaws.

You can learn more about the Meyers-Briggs test here. Stay posted for more basic MBTI information and insights!

My main interest is understanding the motivations of video and computer game characters. What makes a character compelling? Why are they determined to battle monsters, or rescue a damsel, or find their son? (or casually forget about the son they were trying to find…)

Analyzing these people can help answer these questions. It can help us understand what makes an interesting character. It can help us develop our own characters.

Watch out for profiles of your favorite characters, and submit your own analyses with the Submit a Character page!
