Influencer

Type-Three Persona: Collector, Competitor, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Using the latest-and-greatest gadget
  • Virtual Reality
  • Sports commentary
  • Social-climbing
  • Enjoying the high life

An Influencer is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Collector, Competitor and Storyteller. You know an Influencer: they're the one who's always sporting the latest expensive gadget - which was given to them by the manufacturer because 'they wanted to get their feedback'. Influencers collect experiences or things, and tell the world about them like nobody else. This can on occasion be overbearing - or just plain envy-inducing - but they're also generous and share these experiences where they can!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

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!

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.

Bragger

Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Poetry slams
  • Short-story competitions
  • Tells tales of bravado
  • Campfire storytelling

A Bragger is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Storyteller. A Bragger loves to tell stories of valour and and victory - particularly their own! Don't be put off, because a Bragger knows how to tell them, and sees the world in terms of the ebbs and flows of human successes and failures. While this can go too far, they may also show their persona through prolific writing or other creative narrative arts, and with that practice can come great expertise.

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.

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.

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!
