Evoker

Type-Three Persona: Collector, Kinesthete, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Dancing
  • Collecting stories
  • Amassing experiences
  • Sharing their physical feelings

An Evoker is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Collector, Kinesthete and Storyteller. An Evoker gathers experiences - whether stories or physical activities - and loves to have a go at them all. With an eclectic array of things they enjoy, sometimes Evokers can seem a little disconnected. It's probably just that they are storing up memories - and ones that might as likely be about the texture of the carpet or the feel of the heat against their skin as about events as they occur. Bear with an Evoker and they'll show you something profound.

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

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.

Editor

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Reading
  • Collecting books
  • Editorial work
  • Trying multiple storytelling forms
  • Trying new food

An Editor is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Storyteller. They enjoy bringing together different stories and memories, and frequently delight in seeing the comparisons between them. Often Editors are voracious readers, but their thirst for storytelling could easily be found in creative forms - interpretative dance, for example. In fact, Editors might well enjoy lots of different ways of sharing their narrative.

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:

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.

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!
