  1. Sooo I searcher long and hard but I couldn’t find many Mistborn quizzes at all, and the ones I did find contained questions like “what is your favourite colour” and other such… random questions to determine which character a person is like?? I was quite fed up and I decided to make my own quiz, with situations and other questions that are more useful for a determination like this, I guess? Anyways, here it is! I hope it’s fun to answer and maybe the results will be more accurate I would appreciate it if you took the quiz and gave me suggestions as to how I can improve it! Which Mistborn Era 1 Character would you be?
  2. I have recently come across this particular WOB: This, I find kind of interesting, especially "no matter how small that investiture." I can see how if someone were to somehow hold Stormlight for a very long time, they might change to be more driven, to act more, as Stormlight does. Or maybe having a crazy ton of Breaths like Susebron would make one more... willing to endow? Is there a word for that? Maybe that's kind of why he's so nice. And now a word on innate investiture. We know that nearly all humans in the cosmere have what is called innate Investiture. Now I'm pretty sure that the process for changing one's personality is very slow, and the amount of innate investiture so small, that I doubt it is really going to make much of a difference when comparing a normal human from Roshar to one from Scadrial, or Nalthis, etc. But as a race, maybe they lean ever so slightly towards the intent of the investiture they are invested with? Scadrians are more ruinous or preservation, Nalthians are more, endowment-y. I guess what I'm kind of wondering is what you guys think of that. Has anyone seen what might be differences in the nature of humanity between different Shardworlds? What do you think? The last thing I'd also like to bring up is Hoid. Because we know Hoid is acquiring bits of Investiture, with breaths and Surgebinding and his being Mistborn now. Sometimes I feel like he's a little bit of a different person across books and before I just guessed it was him playing different roles. Though, maybe this explains part of it. Anyways. Thoughts?
  3. Thought it would be interesting to discuss the Myers-Briggs Personality Types (MBTI) for the different Cosmere characters. Since I didn't see anyone else doing this, and I'm a bit of an MBTI junkie, I thought I'd start a thread. So, since I just finished reading "Sixth of the Dusk" for the first time, and it really only has two human characters of note, I thought I'd start with typing Dusk and Vathi. Much easier than trying to type every charactert in, say, the Stormlight Archives. So, here goes: Dusk: ISTP Vathi: ENFP I'm going to spoiler up my descriptions of why, because they contain lots of little spoilery tidbits. EDIT: 1/12/XV, 10:00 PM Hmmm, ok, since Curiosity asked, I'm going to type a few Rosharians. Here are some of the ones I've given some thought to: Dalinar: ESTJ Adolin: ESFJ Shallan: INFJ Kaladin: ISFP Jasnah: INTJ Wit/Hoid: ENTP Some of them seem pretty obvious to me (Shallan, Jasnah, Hoid), but others I'll give a bit of extra justification for. If someone asks for clarification on any of the ones I've only touched on, I'll be glad to give it. As usual, I'll spoiler up my reasons, since they will contain myriad little bits of spoilers. So there you have it. What do you think? Agree or disagree? I'd love to have some discussion about this... EDIT: I updated this post, rather than double-posting. Thank you for the suggestion, Curiosity.
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Steven Proudfoot and I'm currently running a social psychology research survey project on the topic of fan personality quizzes. So I have a survey that's roughly 20 minutes long that asks about a few things surrounding how and why people take fan personality quizzes (i.e. “which harry potter house are you?” or “which disney princess are you?” or similar quizzes) and I'm trying to recruit people to take it at the moment. As every fandom has it's own culture and those frequently tend to vary by website, I'm trying to recruit in a way that will create a sample that represents a wide variety of fandoms, fan sites, and fan types rather than just fans from twitter, facebook, tumblr, and the few subreddits that are open to recruitment. I think that fantasy/novel fandoms like this are important to have representation in any fandom study's sample. I was hoping you all could help me out in that way by taking my survey. I've attached my letter of solicitation that I have to use to recruit. If anyone is worried about the legality of my survey, please message me and I will be happy to send my IRB (institutional review board) approval for this. Also, I'd like to note that I asked for permission to post this, so please don't interpret this as spam. Please consider taking this if you've taken a fan personality quiz before. -------------------- Hi, I’m hoping you all can help us out with a psychology study we are conducting. We are doing an anonymous survey (20 min or less) about taking fan personality quizzes (e.g., personality test to see which character or group one is similar to). Participants over the age of 18 are eligible to win a $50 Amazon gift card (chances of winning are 1 in 100, draw entries will be confidential and not associated with survey responses). You can take the survey online at: https://tamuc.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8BcZaErrapdtXcp The survey will be open until October 14, 2018. Thank you!

  5. As I obsessively read everything to leave Brandon's pen, the more I notice elements of his personality and writing habits peeking through consistently through all of his work. When I come across them, it momentarily breaks the fourth wall, but in an endearing way. I only notice these things because I'm familiar with his writing. Examples: When Joel eats a really salty sandwich in The Rithmatist, that's a sandwich Brandon would love. Frowning signifying contemplation. "Elend frowned" could be it's own sub-genre. Interesting, that. Good points, those. Pretty gowns and sharp, buttoned-up military uniforms The 1920s. Oh goodness the 1920s. And I am among the least of these, the Sharders. What are some other things others have noticed?
  6. Often online, we're completely different. And since most of us will never meet in real life, I ask this. What are you like in real life? I have two mood sets that vary randomly. The first one is usually when I'm tired or I have stuff to do. I'll be more methodical, quieter, and thoughtful. I'm much more introverted and don't interact much. The second occurs less often. I'll just be happier. I'll have a swing in my step, I laugh and smile more, and just generally feel good. I'm much brasher and much more extroverted. I guess you could say my mood Waxes and Waynes So, what are you like? Response appreciated.
