Clown

Type-Two Persona: Joker, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Clowning
  • Subverting the uses of physical objects
  • Tumbling
  • Practical joking
  • Messing around

A Clown is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Joker and Kinesthete. Watch the Clown as they tumble, because they can be the most blessed of play personas, as everywhere is a playground for them. A chair is, for a Clown, a prop for gymnastics, a boat to sail upon, an opportunity for slapstick. They love the physical, especially where the world around them is ripe for mirth and happenstance. Clowns love their connection to the earth beneath their feet, but wear gravity lightly, as if able to shake it off at a moment's notice.

A Joker is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. A joker loves to muck around, and frequently resists rules and constraints. They'll be the one who relishes chaos and the unexpected. They can be difficult to have around if you're a stickler for rules - but they can probably teach you a thing or two about letting go of your preconceived ideas of how play should unfold, and encourage you to go with the flow!

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.
