Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Football

An Athlete is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Kinesthete. An Athlete is your traditional sportsman or sportswoman, loving play as much for the opportunity to compete as to enjoy physical exercise. Often an Athlete doesn't care about the particular game at hand - they'll pick up a ball and kick it against the wall, wrestle with nearby friends, or run long distances against themselves or others. The attraction to competing and to movement is best kept in balance, so Athletes benefit from being encouraged to focus on both of these, rather than one to the expense of the other.

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Competitor

Type-One Persona: Competitor

Favourite play activities include:

  • Sports
  • Gambling
  • Play-fighting
  • Expeditions

A Competitor is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. Motivated by an urge to do one better - often than themselves rather than other - a competitor enjoys all forms of competition. For a pure competitor, nothing is more important than winning a game or challenge - and they can get frustrated when others don't seem to be taking it seriously. A competitor is a great person to have on your side, and you can be certain they'll go the extra mile to ensure your team wins.

Kinesthete

Type-One Persona: Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Trampolining
  • Running
  • Tumbling
  • Yoga

A Kinesthete is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. A kinesthete loves to move. Never happier than when their attention is on their body, they enjoy any physical activity that gets the blood pumping. Kinesthetes may enjoy sports for the experience more than the competition - and simply want to take movement to its furthest possible extent.
