Orienteer

Type-Three Persona: Competitor, Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Orienteering
  • Long-distance running
  • Bikram yoga
  • Multi-disciplinary sport
  • Triathlon

An Orienteer is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Competitor, Explorer and Kinesthete. An Orienteer loves to find new and exciting places outdoors, that nobody has found before. They are never happier than when trying out a new sport - often the more physical the better. If there's an Orienteer around, there won't be for long - they'll be off again before you know it. Follow them, and you might find a whole new world opening up to you. Just keep them in sight, because once they're round the corner, you may never find them again!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Trail-Blazer

Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Adventure holidays
  • Expeditions
  • Travel to unusual places
  • Seeing how far they can push themselves
  • Extreme climbing

A Trail-Blazer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Explorer. A Trail-Blazer sets out into the jungle, the wild west, the oceans, before anybody else, fuelled by a competitive sense of going where nobody has gone before. They may seem completely 'out there', but follow the Trail-Blazer, because where they go, the rest of humanity could (one day) follow. You may need to rein in a Trail-Blazer... or make the choice to follow them and see where they might lead!

Athlete

Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Catch
  • Football
  • Running
  • Wrestling
  • Play-fighting
  • Swimming

An Athlete is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Kinesthete. An Athlete is your traditional sportsman or sportswoman, loving play as much for the opportunity to compete as to enjoy physical exercise. Often an Athlete doesn't care about the particular game at hand - they'll pick up a ball and kick it against the wall, wrestle with nearby friends, or run long distances against themselves or others. The attraction to competing and to movement is best kept in balance, so Athletes benefit from being encouraged to focus on both of these, rather than one to the expense of the other.

Aerialist

Type-Two Persona: Explorer, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Outdoor play
  • Socialising with friends
  • Trying out new physical games
  • Journeys on foot / by bike / by canoe

An Aerialist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Explorer and Kinesthete. An Aerialist often loves the great outdoors, moving at speed, and feeling the wind beneath their wings. They are frequently on the move - as much for the feeling of movement as to get somewhere new - but they're the perfect teacher if you need to learn to love the journey rather than simply the destination. Just try to keep up with them!

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

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.

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.

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.
