At GDC 2013, game designer Jason VandenBerghe sought to find a practical game development application of the 5 Domains psychological model of personality types -- or die in the attempt. 

With tongue-in-cheek bombast, VandenBerghe streamlined the "Big 5" model to encompass a complete set of player archetypes, then offered an example of how game developers can use it to build better games by developing accurate empathy for their players. 

But does accurate empathy necessarily mean you can make better games? Find out for yourself by watching VandenBerghe's talk, "Applying the 5 Domains of Play: Acting Like Players", for free right now on the GDC Vault.
