If you've been following along with my MLP D&D series, you've no doubt noticed that I've been giving the girls some semi-silly alignments (Lawful Studious, Chaotic Shiny, Neutral Fabulous, etc). This is mostly because, well, this is based upon a children's cartoon and therefore all of the protagonists are, y'know, good (being role models and such.) So writing "good" after every alignment seemed rather silly and pointless, but at the same time I didn't want to just give their ethical model because there would invariably be confusion with the OD&D system where "chaotic" meant "evil". So in the end I went with something cute and indicative of their personalities.
However, there are other ways to represent pony alignment, and so for today's WNW I give you two different versions thereof. Mix and match at your leisure.
Alignment as a function of order and gender stereotyping
|Tip of the hat to Jeff_W for showing this to me.|
Alignment as a function of Myers-Briggs Personality Types
|Somewhat amusingly, I'm right on that line between INFP and INTP. While friends of mine totally pegged me as Twilight Sparkle, the goth part of me understands what it would be like to give in to the darkness and be like Luna.|
Of the two, I find the MBTI alignment far more interesting. People keep forgetting that role-playing began as a psychological tool...
