Composer

Type-Three Persona: Artist, Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Creating kinetic sculptures
  • Martial arts
  • Inventing new forms of expression

A Composer is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Artist, Explorer and Kinesthete. When you see the Composer at work you'll probably see a blizzard of activity. They love to express themselves, to see the world, and to move - frequently all at the same time. For a Composer they never feel more connected, or more at play, than when they're observing and reflecting their view of the world. This usually takes a dynamic, physical form. They may be creating wind-powered sculptures or creating new forms of dance: with a Composer the medium may well be as important as the message.

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Musician

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Playing music
  • Visiting cathedrals
  • Reading
  • Composing

A Musician is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Explorer. A musician loves to explore and create, and will frequently be just as interested in trying out new looks and techniques than getting the perfect, beautiful results.

Puppeteer

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Puppetry
  • Dance
  • Large-canvas painting
  • Sculpture
  • Collage

A Puppeteer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Kinesthete. A Puppeteer enjoys creating using their body and their own movement. They may enjoy physical art, dance, as well as sculpture and (of course) puppets. For a Puppeteer, movement is about commenting on the world, and, vice versa, understanding the world is about how we move through it. If you find it tough to understand what a Puppeteer is trying to say, have a go at putting yourself physically into the space they create - see the world from their perspective, and in their shoes.

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:

Artist

Type-One Persona: Artist

  • Colouring-in
  • Drawing
  • Doodling
  • Visiting galleries
  • Watching nature
  • Choosing colours for painting rooms / wallpaper / furniture

An Artist is one of the basic, single-type Play Personas. He or she loves to observe or create beauty in the world. An artist derives pleasure from creating – whether that’s building a structure from just the right selection of Lego, or life-drawing in charcoal. If you’re an artist, you might also enjoy going to galleries, listening to music, or watching a gorgeous sunset.

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.
