Event-Creator

Type-Three Persona: Artist, Collector, Competitor

Favourite play activities include:

  • Multiple hobbies
  • Bringing together disparate interests
  • Exhibiting art
  • Participating in a festival of poetry

An Event-Creator is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Artist, Collector and Competitor. An Event-Creator might have eclectic interests, loving everything from painting to sports to stamp-collecting. Where an Event-Creator is able to bring together multiple of these interests they are particularly happy - putting together art exhibitions, or setting up a festival of sports or poetry. With so many interests, they're great to have around - and they'll always be thinking about the next way to make play happen!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Researcher

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Collector

Favourite play activities include:

  • Gathering pretty objects
  • Bottle-collecting
  • Drawing (particularly around a theme)
  • Collecting art

A Researcher is a play persona combining Artist and Collector. With a passion for both beauty and organising, a researcher may seek to have a complete set of attractive objects. He or she may enjoy seeking out items – for example through scouring flea markets or antiques shops. For a researcher the hunt for objects is just as important as having them – but then, having them is also as important as the hunt!

Exhibitionist

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Competitor

Favourite play activities include:

  • Poetry slams
  • Art competitions
  • Jenga
  • Hack-a-thons

An Exhibitionist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Competitor. As the name suggests, an exhibitionist is a natural show-off. They like to create things and share them (loudly!) with the world. While this can, on occasion, be annoying, they are also the ones that work hard to ensure that creative endeavour is valued by the world at large. Exhibitionists often also enjoy competition of a creative nature - whether that be poetry slams or seeing who can produce the most valuable artwork.

Bookie

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Competitor

Favourite play activities include:

  • Gambling
  • Collecting (particularly competitively)
  • Regular activities - yoga, meditation, running, swimming etc.

A Bookie is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Competitor. A Bookie is interested in competition not just for the sake of watching a good fight, but also to observe the patterns at play. They might know every statistic related to a sport, or aim to beat their friends to the biggest, most complete collection. A Bookie often persists at a daily practice - whether it's running or meditation - driven by a sense of doing better, and never breaking the chain. Watch out when betting against a Bookie - they'll know every relevant previous game that suggests who's going to win!

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Artist

Type-One Persona: Artist

Favourite play activities include:

  • 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.

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.

Competitor

Type-One Persona: Competitor

Favourite play activities include:

  • Sports
  • Gambling
  • Play-fighting
  • Expeditions

A Competitor is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. Motivated by an urge to do one better - often than themselves rather than other - a competitor enjoys all forms of competition. For a pure competitor, nothing is more important than winning a game or challenge - and they can get frustrated when others don't seem to be taking it seriously. A competitor is a great person to have on your side, and you can be certain they'll go the extra mile to ensure your team wins.
