What do you do IRL Gamer?
Okay, just humor me. I’ve wanted to do a poll since the first day I had this blog. Just couldn’t think of anything. Navimie of The Daily Frostwolf told me a post of mine gave her an idea for a post. I read it and finally got an idea for a poll. Thanks Navi!
I’ve always been interested in animal minds, human minds, and how they work. I’m fascinated by Ironyca’s posts on gaming. She does all the hard work and research and I get to enjoy the results.
So in a totally unscientific fashion, I’m going to try to determine if there is a correlation between what people do in real life that might make them gamers. Or not.
I am so excited about having an idea for a poll that I’m going to just plop this thing right here without trying to make it pretty.
The groups are really broad, so just pick one that’s closest. I’m in the Creative/Arts one. So, come on. I showed you mine … you show me yours.
Back when I worked for other people, I used to get a lot of eyeball rolling from the codey IT types. You want it to do what? Because it’ll look pretty? Are you nuts?
And farther back when I was a print designer I got the eyeball rolling from printers. It can’t be done. Why do you people come up with this stuff, it can’t be printed. Why do you want to do this? What! Because it’ll look cool! Are you nuts!
So I guess on reflection, my profession has always been being nuts, but I’m not including that one … just check “Creative” instead. If anyone responds, we can see if a pattern emerges. Does your profession predict the odds that you’ll be a gamer? Come on … it’ll be fun … and um … pretty and cool!
