Aviator

Type-Three Persona: Director, Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Leading epic expeditions
  • Setting up experimental assault courses
  • Managing a yoga retreat
  • Anything that involves a mental challenge and a bit of chaos
  • Anything with friends

An Aviator is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Director, Explorer and Kinesthete. An Aviator likes to lead people into the unknown - but to be worth the trip the journey itself must be worth it. You'll find an Aviator at the front of the pack leading an epic run around the world or paddling down the nile on self-made rafts. Inspiring and slightly unhinged in equal measure - they'll either win you round to their adventure or leave you wondering why anyone would put themselves through what they do!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Pioneer

Type-Two Persona: Director, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Orienteering
  • Geo-caching

A Pioneer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Director and Explorer. A pioneer leads from the front, driving into unchartered territory. They can sometimes lead people astray, but as often as not they're the first to hit upon the next big craze - and so you'll be glad to have a Pioneer around to help you be ahead of the crowd!

Choreographer

Type-Two Persona: Director, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Choreography
  • Setting up physical sports
  • Leading hikes
  • Coaching sports teams or individuals

A Choreographer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Director and Kinesthete. A Choreographer likes to lead others in movement - dance, sport, martial arts, etc. Their drive to provide these opportunities is driven by their love of movement - rather than, say, a desire to compete or see others do so. Choreographers make great coaches, but they must make sure they get to experience movement themselves, rather than just enabling it for others.

Aerialist

Type-Two Persona: Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Outdoor play
  • Socialising with friends
  • Trying out new physical games
  • Journeys on foot / by bike / by canoe

An Aerialist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Explorer and Kinesthete. An Aerialist often loves the great outdoors, moving at speed, and feeling the wind beneath their wings. They are frequently on the move - as much for the feeling of movement as to get somewhere new - but they're the perfect teacher if you need to learn to love the journey rather than simply the destination. Just try to keep up with them!

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Director

Type-One Persona: Director

Favourite play activities include:

  • Refereeing
  • Conducting music
  • Directing theatre
  • Directing films
  • Dungeon-master

A Director is a basic, single-type Play Persona. A director loves to be in charge, and are frequently natural-born leaders. While on occasion they can tip over into being controlling, a director is a great person to have around. They'll be the one who wants to organise play activities, set up friends to meet one another, and loves to be able to sit back and watch their plan come together.

Explorer

Type-One Persona: Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Treasure-hunts
  • Travel
  • Trying new cuisines

An Explorer is a basic, single-type Play Persona. Motivated by a sense of adventure, an explorer likes to discover new things. That could be new music, always looking for the latest (though not necessarily the greatest) band. They often love travel - and the more unusual and different from their normal experience the better.

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.
