GameMaster Types [gaming geekery]

The concept of "player types" (e.g., "the butt-kicker," "the tactician," "the explorer") has been around for quite some time -- Aaron Allston pioneered the concept (as far as I know) in CHAMPIONS: Strike Force (1988), and robin_d_laws made much use of it in Robin's Laws of Good Gamemastering and Dungeon Master's Guide II.

However, this post is the first time I've seen the concept applied to GM types. It's interesting stuff! I figured out how I'd categorize myself ... but I'd be curious as to how my players would categorize me.
