Within the same hive, outgoing leaders such as Karl and Laura would place very differently than the reserved scientists such as Tommy and Nathan.

For actors who portrayed multiple Wraith, the chart gives more appreciation for how the roles demanded different acting skill sets. Erik seems data-oriented and demanding of perfection and factual proofs while Greg seems very dominant, determined, and confronts challenges directly.

Do you see yourself in any of these types? Do you think your results would have changed over the years?

The Johari window:

Is a grid which is used to help people to better understand their relationship with themselves and others. In fandom fun, it can be used to create characters for fanfics and RPGs and also to analyze characters. It represents different personal attributes, known and unknown, to both the self and others, sort of like analyzing businesses in terms of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. The combinations are as follows in this graph:
