Conjuror

Type-Three Persona: Collector, Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Mushroom-hunting
  • Antiques market exploration
  • Trying multiple physical activities
  • Invoking rituals

A Conjuror is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Collector, Explorer and Kinesthete. The Conjuror loves the unusual. Their urge to explore and connect is modified by their kinesthetic enjoyment of the physical. They might enjoy exploring how they can use their body - in yoga or dance, for example - as well as going out into the world to find things. You might find a Conjuror hunting the forest for ingredients, or searching through antiques markets for crystal balls. Or equally, much more down-to-Earth activities, as long as they're a little off the beaten track!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Treasure-Hunter

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Geo-caching
  • Searching for antiques
  • Flea-market scouring
  • Exotic collecting
  • Visiting unusual places, to tick them off

A Treasure-Hunter is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Explorer. Ah, the Treasure-Hunter! Most glamorous of play personas! And yet, those who don't follow this calling rarely realise how much hard work goes into it. Extensive research and - yes - much disappointment comes before something is to be found. It is also to be remembered that what counts as treasure for some may be junk for others. A Treasure-Hunter values their collection for itself, not for monetary worth, though frequently rarity plays some part. They also may enjoy travelling to far-flung reaches, as much to tick them off as for the place itself. But the sense of adventure that Treasure-Hunters exude is certainly real!

Gymnast

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Gymnastics
  • Yoga
  • Multiple sports
  • Wide games
  • Playground games

A Gymnast is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Kinesthete. A Gymnast is flexible, enjoys movement, and always wanting to find new and different ones. Gymnasts frequently play any number of different sports, or other activities that get them using their body. They're the ones who try every different variety of yoga, always wanting to add new positions to their practice, or who love to play all the different positions in the football team.

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:

Collector

Type-One Persona: Collector

Favourite play activities include:

  • Collecting (stamps, bottles, etc.)
  • Visiting sets of places
  • Organising, alphabetising, etc.

A Collector is a basic, type-one Play Persona. A collector, you'll be unsurprised to hear, enjoys collecting. This doesn't necessarily mean physical objects, but could just as easily be experiences. Collectors like to set themselves challenges, and are frequently motivated as much by completeness (visiting every single restaurant in the top 100!) as by the experience itself. They may also like to do something on a daily basis, and are motivated by the need to maintain an unbroken chain.

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.
