We examined the effects of personality pairings on enjoyment within two video game scenarios. It was hypothesized that one would enjoy playing with another person who possesses a personality type similar to their own and in a game scenario that matched their personality type. Results showed that cooperative pairings particularly enjoyed playing together. Implications for game design could include a personality survey to maximize enjoyment. 2014 Copyright held by the Owner/Author.
