Researcher

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Collector

Favourite play activities include:

  • Gathering pretty objects
  • Bottle-collecting
  • Drawing (particularly around a theme)

A Researcher is a play persona combining Artist and Collector. With a passion for both beauty and organising, a researcher may seek to have a complete set of attractive objects. He or she may enjoy seeking out items – for example through scouring flea markets or antiques shops. For a researcher the hunt for objects is just as important as having them – but then, having them is also as important as the hunt!

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.

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.
