Football Manager Tools | Mentality Calculator
If you haven’t already read it, I suggest you read my post about Mentality and Team Shape on Football Manager. You can find it here: A study into Mentality and Team Shape on Football Manager 2018
This calculator is designed to give you the individual player mentality based on team shape, team mentality and the player’s individual duty. Moreover, if you use any specific passing focus, e.g., down the flanks or through the middle then this will also calculate any affects this has on player mentality.
This calculator is to be used as a guide only and I would strongly recommend you read the above thread. There is so much more that goes on within the match engine than just a straight-up calculation of whether a player has 5 or 15 set as his mentality. However, this should give you a good understanding of the risk level set for the player and his propensity to push forward in attack and take more risks with a view to creating opportunities for your team. It will also give you a good idea of the compactness between the lines.
