EVE: Watch out I bite

So I took the EVE personality test. Apparently I am am an:

Industrialist with teeth
Industrialist with teeth

You enjoy Eve's economic model and you find that the greatest challenge of the game lies in mastering the market. System security status is a matter of profit/no profit for you, and you always factor in the possibility/probability of PvP in your estimates. To you, Eve isn't a PvP or a PvE game. It's a simulation of capitalizm in its purest form, and a place where the savvy wins the day.

All in all its a reasonable assessment. I am a care bear who doesn't get kicks out of causing pain to others but I like the fact that EVE is a dangerous universe. I am not really an industrialist I guess but as far as I am concerned industry/ missions /trading even piracy if I ever get around to it are all just ways to play the game and earn a crust in the EVE universe.

I have no time for:

Care bears who whine every time their own carelessness causes them to lose their stuff and who demand nerf's that would completely remove the all pervading element of risk that makes EVE a special game.

I have even less time for:

Imbecilic pvp players who do not understand that trying to avoid combat is a perfectly valid way to play the game, who whine every time a smart carebear manages to escape their ill prepared trap and who demand nerfs that would allow them to prey on carebears at no risk to themselves thereby destroying the magnificent economic model that makes EVE a special game.
