I found this list and just HAD to post it:

Quote from: Eric J.
Uh.. Welcome to the forge!  

It must be an important topic to get you out of lurking.  How new are you to GNS?  How do you think it relates?

Heh.  Thanks.  ;)

The first time I took the Myers-Briggs I was profoundly impressed by how well it seemed to describe me.  The first time I read about the GNS (years ago, but I follow discussions of it) I was profoundly impressed by how well it seemed to describe the differences and similarities between my play style and others'.  So the juxtaposition of the two intrigued me, although I don't sense a strong link between them.

I'm an INTJ, to whom Alan hypothetically attributes Simulationist preferences (because of that Thinking preference, perhaps).  But when I run or play a game, it's my iNtuitive side that gets the big workout.  What I'm looking for in the experience is that compelling dramatic Narrative.  I iNtuitively grasp what that means for any given decision, and only then do my Thinking tendencies kick in, working out the details of how to achieve it.  When I play with Simulationist players or under Sim GMs I get frustrated as they drag the story to a halt with minutae I've decided are unimportant, or as they make decisions that ruin the story (like failing to give enough script immunity to the PCs).  Similarly, I have little interest in systems that obstruct the pace of the narrative.

I suppose I'd say that while an NT might value making decisions based on logic, that doesn't mean anti-freeze pumps through our veins.  Our goals can easily be aesthetic goals: we simply use iNtuition instead of Feelings to reach them.

Hi, I'm and INFP/J and tend to prefer Sim. (I scored INFP, but sometimes I get INFJ.)

I'm pretty solidly an INTP (my tendency toward introversion has been weakened through the years of being something of a public person, in music, radio, teaching, and on the web, but it's still marked).

I don't seem to have a GNS preference, shifting between them sometimes in play.
