Streaming Fundamentals: The Key Ingredient, YOU

    Streaming Fundamentals aims to provide you with a solid foundation of knowledge in order to help you stream.

    Whether you have just started to consider the idea of streaming or you have been doing it for quite some time, this series should be beneficial to you. Each individual episode covers a specific topic that will be tackled as objectively as possible, while striving to use a range of sources and factual references rather than just a singular opinion.

    Anyone can dive in and start broadcasting their antics, but the sheer number of streamers nowadays can make it harder for those who are just getting started to stand out from the crowd. Whilst Streaming Fundamentals cannot provide you with guaranteed success, the series aims to get you to think about streaming in a more deliberate manner than you may have done previously.

    Pop-Quiz: Did you know that Online Personality Quizzes are based off Psychometrics?

    According to Carl G. Jung’s theory of psychological types [Jung, 1971], people can be characterised by:

    their preference of general attitude:

    • Extroverted (E) vs. Introverted (I),

    their preference of one of the two functions of perception:

    • Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N),

    and their preference of one of the two functions of judging:

    • Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)

    The three areas of preferences introduced by Jung are dichotomies (i.e. bipolar dimensions where each pole represents a different preference). Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant — either a function of perception or a function of judging. Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type [Briggs Myers, 1980]:

    • Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)
