Abstract: This Final Year Project Report serves as a documentation of the knowledge and tasks carried out by the author for his MP4079 Final Year Project in his fourth year in Nanyang Technological University. Discovered decades ago, the Thirty-six Stratagems was employed heavily during the ancient war times in China. Today, it is widely applied, to the business world, politics, etc. Just like “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, a lot of research has been carried out to seek further understanding of the Thirty-six Stratagems. Chapter 2 of this report will focus on and explain each of the thirty-six stratagems. Over the years, the western theorists have developed Game Theory to model human behaviour and decision-making processes, seeking for optimal solutions, so as to attain the highest possible returns or payoffs. Chapter 3 of this report will provide an enhanced understand of Game Theory. This report aims at merging the Chinese’s Thirty-six Stratagems with the Western’s Game Theory, with the intention of gaining an upper hand over other players, thereby increasing the chance of winning. Chapter 4 of this report will attempt to do so, and provide explanations for the connection. Another major section of this report is to look at the different types of human personalities. Chapter 5 of this report will discuss about the 16 different personality types, highlighting each personality type’s strength and weakness. Chapter 6 of this report will focus on the implementation of the Thirty-six Stratagems on the 16 Personality Types, providing an analysis of the different personality types that are suitable to have each of the stratagems implemented. Chapter 7 will cover some of the possible future recommendations, applications and research to be done following this project.
