Revealer

Type-Three Persona: Artist, Explorer, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • (Over-)sharing
  • Telling stories of creative adventure
  • Making evocative experiences
  • Uncovering secrets
  • Ghost-hunting
  • Exploring mysteries

A Revealer is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Artist, Explorer and Storyteller. One of the personas that most wears their heart on their sleeve, the Revealer is on a journey exploring the world, and sharing what they find. The whole world for them is an unfolding story, and one that we all co-create as we live in it. Some find Revealers a little bit 'woo-woo', but embrace them and they'll help you see the world in a whole new light.

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Musician

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Playing music
  • Visiting cathedrals
  • Reading
  • Composing

A Musician is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Explorer. A musician loves to explore and create, and will frequently be just as interested in trying out new looks and techniques than getting the perfect, beautiful results.

Cartoonist

Type-Two Persona: Artist, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Creating cartoons / graphic novels
  • Immersive theatre
  • Naturalistic / representative painting

A Cartoonist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Artist and Storyteller. For a Cartoonist, creating things is rarely just a practical endeavour. They love to tell stories with their creations, building in narrative, memories and lived experiences. Beauty is less about the aesthetic and more about what it evokes in you, and how it reframes the world from some other perspective. Sometimes you'll want to ask a Cartoonist just to use words to explain what they're thinking - but this is often a mistake. They're eager to tell their story, but you must allow them to do so in their own way.

Bard

Type-Two Persona: Explorer, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Travel writing
  • Having new emotional experiences
  • Reading fantasy / science-fiction
  • Exploration (of culture as well as geography)

A Bard is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Explorer and Storyteller. They are on an eternal search for new experiences and stories to tell about them. For a Bard, these two things cannot be separated - the journey is the story, and the story must be about the journey. You may hear tales of fantasy from a Bard, but they will be telling you about human experience and the condition of being alive. For a Bard unless they are constantly fed new ways of seeing the world they do not feel alive - so don't be surprised if they're up and off before they've finished telling you the current tale.

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.

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.

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!
