PsyOps Battlefield 3 is an academic research project about the link between play style and personality. The simple question we want to answer is: does how you play show who you truly are? Or, put more academically: does the statistically trackable play style of a player significantly correlate to his personality? To find the answer we had over 13,000 Battlefield 3 players complete a personality test. We combined the results of this test with their Battlefield 3 play statistics. We found that play style does indeed say something about someone’s personality. Surprisingly, age also seems to be very closely tied to play style.
