Abstract:
Scores of 54 fantasy role game players (mean age 24.5) and 64 National Guardsmen (mean age 24.3) were compared on a neuroticism scale and demographic variables. While the Rolegamers reported daydreaming and sleeping more than the Guardsmen, the popular stereotype that game players are withdrawn, emotionally immature adolescents was not confirmed. The typical game player was male with as many close friends as the guardsmen. Mean neuroticism scores did not appear to differ between the two groups and were not high enough to be considered clinically significant. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
