Piper

Type-Three Persona: Artist, Director, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Leading dances
  • Supporting self-expression
  • Putting together sound and light shows
  • Dancing

A Piper is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Artist, Director and Kinesthete. Like the famous Pied Piper, they can lead people astray - off on a fantasy mission into the jungle or the desert. But a Piper loves to dance and sing as much as they love to lead others in doing so - and is looking to help others to find their expressive moves when they instigate the adventures they set up. Follow the Piper and you'll never be without an exciting leader - just make sure that you really want to follow however far they go!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Conductor

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Director

Favourite play activities include:

  • Conducting music
  • Technical drawing
  • Leading building

A Conductor is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Director. They love to enable others to express themselves. A Conductor often wants to create bigger artworks than they can do alone, so enlists those around them to help. Frequently, the results are far greater than without a Conductor, but those that follow should remember that they, too, should express their own creativity in making the communal work!

Puppeteer

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Puppetry
  • Dance
  • Large-canvas painting
  • Sculpture
  • Collage

A Puppeteer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Kinesthete. A Puppeteer enjoys creating using their body and their own movement. They may enjoy physical art, dance, as well as sculpture and (of course) puppets. For a Puppeteer, movement is about commenting on the world, and, vice versa, understanding the world is about how we move through it. If you find it tough to understand what a Puppeteer is trying to say, have a go at putting yourself physically into the space they create - see the world from their perspective, and in their shoes.

Choreographer

Type-Two Persona: Director, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Choreography
  • Setting up physical sports
  • Leading hikes
  • Coaching sports teams or individuals

A Choreographer is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Director and Kinesthete. A Choreographer likes to lead others in movement - dance, sport, martial arts, etc. Their drive to provide these opportunities is driven by their love of movement - rather than, say, a desire to compete or see others do so. Choreographers make great coaches, but they must make sure they get to experience movement themselves, rather than just enabling it for others.

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Artist

Type-One Persona: Artist

Favourite play activities include:

  • Colouring-in
  • Drawing
  • Doodling
  • Visiting galleries
  • Watching nature
  • Choosing colours for painting rooms / wallpaper / furniture

An Artist is one of the basic, single-type Play Personas. He or she loves to observe or create beauty in the world. An artist derives pleasure from creating – whether that’s building a structure from just the right selection of Lego, or life-drawing in charcoal. If you’re an artist, you might also enjoy going to galleries, listening to music, or watching a gorgeous sunset.

Director

Type-One Persona: Director

Favourite play activities include:

  • Refereeing
  • Conducting music
  • Directing theatre
  • Directing films
  • Dungeon-master

A Director is a basic, single-type Play Persona. A director loves to be in charge, and are frequently natural-born leaders. While on occasion they can tip over into being controlling, a director is a great person to have around. They'll be the one who wants to organise play activities, set up friends to meet one another, and loves to be able to sit back and watch their plan come together.

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.
