There is an ongoing research study into players of MMOs called the Daedalus Project. The author of the study is researching how people play MMOs and their motivations for their action in the game. The study is nonjudgemental and reviles a lot to the insight of players. I have been a part of the study for a couple of years now and found it helpful in understanding whay some players act one way while other act another in the same game serarios.
You can find info on it at http://www.nickyee.com/daedalus/ if interested.
