“I'll find a way to get through alive.”
You like escaping from hideous and scary threats, pulse-pounding risks.
Your behaviour rides on the edge of your fear – you love to be terrified and then feel safe again.
Your major brain region is the amygdala, an ancient part of the limbic system (the so-called “reptile brain”) that controls fear by influencing the adrenal glands.
Your chemical messenger is adrenaline (epinephrine), which enhances the effects of the reward chemical dopamine.
If you were an animal, it would be a snake.
Favourite games of Survivors surveyed so far include Bioshock, Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, and Silent Hill.
Your BrainHex class is related to the Serious Fun Key (4 Fun Keys), and Ilinx or vertigo (Roger Caillois), as well as possibly being related to Tactical play (Temperament theory) and Immersion-Escapism motivation (Yee).
Your BrainHex Icon depicts the amygdala ("fear centre") as a large diamond and the adrenal gland as a small diamond, both linked to the nucleus accumbens ("pleasure centre") in the centre, representing that experiencing and overcoming fear brings you pleasure.
