Are you figuring that player types are defined by "A first, B second," or just by "A and B"? If the latter, it's 7 x 6 / 2 = 21.

Right, but I have two questions for each pairing. One worded to make A sound good, and a second worded to make B sound good.

For example, I have two questions that deal with the pairing of Power Gamer and Butt–Kicker:
  • I fight as a means of acquiring treasure, skills, experience points, etc.
  • I rush into combat even if it means a delay or set-back in character advancement.

I thought that might be what you meant, but I wanted to make sure.

It is not pretty, but it works on my computer: Mac OS 10.10.2 running Safari 8.0.3.

Online questionnaire to see what kind of Robin D. Laws player type you are.

"Submit" doesn't work on mine. I'm running Chrome.

Rats, I'm sorry to hear that. Web design is just a hobby for me; I have no idea why it's not working for you. It's pretty much just a .html file and a .js file, those of you with better web skills than I might be able to see what the problem is. If someone lets me know how to fix the problem with chrome, I'll be happy to do so.

Works with Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8. I though it hadn't at first, but then found I needed to scroll down.

Power Gamer: 45.833333333333336%
Butt-Kicker: 16.666666666666668%
Tactician: 83.33333333333333%
Specialist: 33.333333333333336%
Method Actor: 62.5%
Storyteller: 58.333333333333336%
Casual Gamer: 50%

You might want to round off those percentages a bit.
