    Can’t stop thinking of using your user types for “clinical” purpose..

    This is a good post. I’m surprised there are no other comments. The graph looks good! I still feel that the “logo” in the center seems a bit out of place and could use a “graphical upgrade” though 😉

    • Ah, fuzzy has been with me many many many years. It is an emotional rather than a logical relationship! I only put him on the chart for fun 🙂

      • yudashkai says:

        Haha, yes, I remember this. My point is that character can stay, just with a graphical upgrade. Even Mario has had many facelifts with higher resolutions after his NES days 😉

        • I have seen a few upgrades, and I am not keen on them so far. Show me one I like, and I will use it 😉

          • yudashkai says:

            haha, upgrades have to come from YOU! (unless the original didn’t come from you). Either draw something better, or use like $40-$200 to get someone to upgrade the concept of “bird on a dice” 😉

          • yudashkai says:

            Maybe the bird’s grown to an eagle now 😀

          • hehe. I drew it years ago, no interest in upgrading – more important things to worry about lol.

          • yudashkai says:

            Just a personal branding thing, which you wrote about. If many were to put your player type model in their books in the future, you want to think about how it’s displayed ;-D As you know…I’ve been working on investing in my personal brand, hehehe

          • This is in no way the definitive image. THat is on the User types page – it does not include the bird. Anyway,I like it and have no issue with his look. If people want to use it to represent me, meh. Not done me any harm so far!

          • yudashkai says:

            Haha – no worries! Just providing feedback where ever I can (since some things people don’t bother bringing up). Maybe every once in a while I’ll hit on something that is constructive and would be helpful for you! ;-D

          • sorry. As I make nothing from gamification, 2014 is a year that may see me invest less time in the cause. Not my blog so much, but I can’t afford to pay for a new logo and I don’t have the time to do that sort of thing and earn money or write! Always happy for you to comment though YuKai – At least I know you are honest 🙂

          • yudashkai says:

            Haha, maybe 2014 that will all change! Maybe soon Gamification can actually help you pay some bills 😉

            No need to say sorry about anything!

    • So. 4 types, 6 types or 9 types for you?

      • yudashkai says:

        Haha, you mean which one am I most likely to use in my own work?

        • More what you find more usable 🙂

          • yudashkai says:

            Haha, this is tough. I have been procrastinating this decision because I feel like I don’t understand enough about them at this point (and new ones seem to keep coming out!). I think I’m waiting for the dust to settle…like once I see you consistently mention one system, and then I’ll just be using that ;-P I’ll think about putting more thought though!

          • This is going to be the final version I feel. It allows a lot of flexibility whilst giving a nice framework for people. This may help you though…
