Gamer archetypes

A funny post at TheBoardGameBlog about typical game-playing behaviors. I've been all five of these at different times, although I tend toward the Helper and the Victim. It's especially difficult when watching people play a game I've created to sit on my hands, bite my tongue, and not help out - that's been a challenge for me when doing playtesting sessions, since I want people to have a good time, but I need to see what strategies and rules interpretations people come up with, whether I intended them or not.
