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:

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!
