Every MUN is a community of people who are interested in international relations or diplomatic activities. Many of them have suitable academic background. Some people just like MUNs for personal reasons.
Every Model is unique, because every time there are different people. But sometimes you may find common features between MUNs’ participants. Here are 4 typical MUNers you usually may meet in every Model:
Has big MUN’s experience. Familiar with Models rules and work features. Usually behaves kindly, politely and calmly. Sometimes, even cold-bloodedly. Should not been underestimated. Such a delegate is able to politely crush you and move on. In case of a fierce dispute and discussion can be a threat.
This person takes the duty with enthusiasm. (S)he heartily tries to gets into character. Usually impulsive and self-assured, that makes him the most vulnerable to Elephants. Delegate, remember! You better speak if only you are sure about your statements' correctness. If your mistake will be corrected, it can damage your reputation and reduce the impact of your words in the committee.
MUNs’ passive part, trying to talk as little
as possible. Gets +3 to stealth and being immune to all attacks until the ‘/say’
command or ‘taunt’ ability is used. Usually, all the activity comes down to
voting and that’s what makes Shadows the most valuable part of the committee. They
may rarely speak, but listen very carefully and participate in voting on the
same rights with others. That's why giving a speech to the audience, you should try to
influence this group.
'What am I doing here?’
People from this category came to a MUN either first time or accidentally. They were preparing to the MUN using the information from open sources, or were not preparing at all. During the MUN such a person acts chaotically or transforms into a shadow.
Of course, there are people with signs of several types. In the Model you may also meet well prepared newbie that will act like an Elephant. A Brave Heart can act in a rational way and a Shadow is able to stop suddenly raging Elephant with a couple of words.
