8 Types


My player types model for virtual world players is well known in its 4-part version (achiever, explorer, socialiser, killer) but not very well known at all in its 8-part version (opportunist, planner, scientist, hacker, networker, friend, politician, griefer). The 4-part version is easy to draw because it's 2D, but the 8-part one is 3D; it's therefore much harder to draw in such a way as it doesn't collapse in a mass of lines.

I was trying to draw such a 3D graph today, when suddenly inspiration struck:

Ha! It may not make any sense, but who's going to cold-hearted enough to criticise someone who uses DuploTM to illustrate their theories?
