Eve Online: The Eve Personality Test

This psychological test is quite fun to do.

I got Gunslinger:

Take The EvE Personality Test today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.

Eve is a PvP game. The PvE parts of the game are there to drive the economy in order to produce more PvP. Multiplayer is key, and even though solo-play can be fun, the game should be balanced as a multiplayer game. High-sec is as much of a warzone as low- and nul-sec. It's just a matter of finding ways to get at the people living there. You usually play with other people, because when the going gets tough, the tough get some backup.


  1. According to that, I am a Bleeding Heart Carebear... oh noes. xD

  2. Too funny, I got 'The Industrialist with Teeth', which is not what I am focusing on right now in EVE. Fun test though.

  3. Apparently I'm an Industrialist with Teeth, too.

    Of course, I've never played the game, and just went with what seemed appropriate from what I've researched... but it sounds about right. I'm not much for PvP, but I'll defend myself painfully, and I'm prepared to do so. ;)

    EVE is one of those games I keep wanting to play... but won't for a handful of reasons. The business model (I don't like subs) and nonconsensual PvP bother me, but I like a lot of other things about the game.

  4. @ Longasc There are worse things to be :)

    @ Jayedub Hope you enjoy Eve and decide to stick around.

    @ Tesh It's possible to pretty much ignore pvp in Eve for long periods then it bites you in the bum. Hard.

    As for subs you can pay in isk and earn isk in quite fun ways. It doesn't have to be a real world financial commitment. There are even passive incomes you can set up so all you need to do is log in once every month, collect your points, cash them up for isk, buy a card.

  5. Apparently I'm a "FotM-Fag"... LOL. Huh?!

  6. Yeah, I've heard that's possible. I've also heard it's a time sink. One of these days, I still want to look into it, though. The game just looks good enough to want to play in it.

    As for the PvP, well, I *am* an "industrialist with teeth". I won't look for PvP, but when it tries to bite me in the bum, well, I won't go out without a fight. I don't anticipate winning all the time, but I'm not going to roll over and give up either. ;) And y'know, I kinda think that will be fun, defending myself, making pirates think twice.
