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.

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.

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!
