Player Modeling is a research field that studies player characteristics by analyzing in-game behavior. We aim to develop independent models, which are transferable and useful beyond a game’s context. We shall demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by applying player models to crowdsourcing to predict workers’ task completion effectiveness. Specifically, we model a user’s Need for Cognition based on in-game behavior, and based on that try to assign appropriate tasks to workers.
