Take the Test

Experimenter

Type-Two Persona: Explorer, Joker

  • Trying new things
  • Finger-painting
  • Random craft classes
  • Science experiments
  • Cooking new recipes
  • Inventing new recipes

An Experimenter is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Explorer and Joker. For an Experimenter play is about having a go, seeing what happens, and enjoying the consequences no matter what unfolds. They're the ones who dive right in when there's paint to be put to canvas, and delight as much as the murky messes as the grand masters. They love the new, but also the old turned upside-down and seen afresh. An Experimenter is great to have around for their ability to really test a different approach, and happy demeanour in both success and failure.

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

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.

Joker

Type-One Persona: Joker

Favourite play activities include:

  • Comedy
  • Practical jokes
  • Puns
  • Play-acting
  • Surreal play
  • Colour runs

A Joker is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. A joker loves to muck around, and frequently resists rules and constraints. They'll be the one who relishes chaos and the unexpected. They can be difficult to have around if you're a stickler for rules - but they can probably teach you a thing or two about letting go of your preconceived ideas of how play should unfold, and encourage you to go with the flow!
