His charts assume that women play female characters and men play male characters. That's a very large presumption to make considering that about half of the female characters in my guild alone are played by men. In fact, this nullifies about half of the article since he actually can't make that assumption. You can say that when people choose to play Night Elves, a large portion of them choose to play female NE's but you can't say that those are women choosing to play females.

I have half and half.I play two female characters (warrior, priest), and two male characters (paladin, shaman).It is more aesthetics than anything. The male character models look awkward.

I thought it was people who identified as female and male on the gamerDNA site, not the ingame characters. But maybe I'm wrong about that. I agree -- if it's the gender of ingame characters, these charts are more or less useless.

Mike is right, it is people who identified as people being female or male in real life, not in game. It is *NOT* the gender of their characters ingame.

Depends on how the data was gathered. The Bartle test is a questionnaire. So the question phrasing and number of people that took the test would matter most.
