Pamphleteer

Type-Three Persona: Collector, Competitor, Joker

Favourite play activities include:

  • Satire
  • Collecting practical jokes
  • Taking the mickey
  • Speaking truth to power

A Pamphleteer is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Collector, Competitor and Joker. A Pamphleteer collects and compiles rebellion, always with a smile. They're the one spear-heading the humiliation of their enemies, knowing that destroying someone's reputation is a better way of bringing down Goliath than fighting head-on. A great person to have in your team, try to avoid getting on the sharp end of their invective, and you'll remain an audience-member rather than the subject of their jokes.

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!

Jester

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Joker

Favourite play activities include:

  • Telling jokes
  • Surreal play
  • Collecting strange items
  • Subtle satire

A Jester is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Joker. A Jester is a funny person to have around. They tend to store up jokes and deploy them with regularity. But remember, the Jester has a hidden knack of speaking truth to power, always with a cheeky smile. Jesters might also have quirky habits - collecting an odd category of item, for example. There's probably some method to their madness, but good luck unpicking it!

Satirist

Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Joker

Favourite play activities include:

  • Competitive practical-joking
  • Writing status-quo challenging invective
  • Challenging dry or boring ways of viewing the world

A Satirist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Joker. A Satirist loves to question, and push back against those that see the world in one particular way. Happy to engage in a lively debate, the Satirist uses wit to challenge standard views. They may be the one staging the biggest, best practical joke, and can be fun to have around. Sometimes they need to reel it in, and Satirists can occasion go to far - a tendency they should try to be aware of, without letting go of their innate power and charm.

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.

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!
