Ballet-Master

Type-Three Persona: Director, Kinesthete, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Leading dance troupe
  • Physical theatre director
  • Swim team coach

A Ballet-Master is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Director, Kinesthete and Storyteller. The leader of a dance troupe or the head of a physical theatre company are all about telling stories through movement. Get behind them, and you'll learn a whole new way of expressing yourself without words. Ballet-Masters can be a contemplative play persona to have, but listen carefully because when they express themselves they're full of wisdom.

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

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.

Dramatist

Type-Two Persona: Director, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Leading book groups / writing groups
  • Starting a campfire storytelling circle
  • Setting up short-story competitions
  • Compering open mic nights

A Dramatist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Director and Storyteller. Never happier than when helping others to tell their stories, Dramatists often lead from the front, but know when to quieten down and let others take centre-stage. Conversely, Dramatists may be drawn to the tales of great leaders, and exult those they see as having supported others in their successes.

Dancer

Type-Two Persona: Kinesthete, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Dance
  • Sports writing
  • Mime
  • Creating a journey stick

A Dancer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Kinesthete and Storyteller. A Dancer uses their body to tell you about the world. They see all movement as change, a step in a wider narrative, intimate or grand. Watch what a Dancer says with their body, because they feel truths in the pressure on their skin that others miss only using their eyes and ears. They may also love to speak of physical experiences they've had, interpreting and retelling what others might only hold onto for a particular moment in time.

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.

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.

Storyteller

Type-One Persona: Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Writing
  • Lecturing
  • Sharing experiences
  • Imagining
  • Role-Playing

A Storyteller is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. Enjoying sharing their experience (though not necessarily using words) a storyteller often uses play to form memories as much as for the experience itself. They love to imagine - and to share the product of their imaginings with their fellow travellers. On occasion this can tend towards storytellers seeming a little distant from the action, but be reassured that this is just them storing up information to relate back later!
