Revelationist

Type-Three Persona: Competitor, Explorer, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Travel writing
  • Going somewhere before anyone else (and telling the tale)
  • Indulging nostalgia
  • Sharing stories of wonder and mystery

A Revelationist is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Competitor, Explorer and Storyteller. A Revelationist loves unveiling the weird and wonderful and different. They enjoy nothing more than trying something new before everyone else - and living to tell the tale. Engaging speakers, they are the ones that grip the crowd with their stories of adventures to far-flung shores. A mystery is an itch to scratch for them, and won't last long when they have it in their sight.

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!

Bragger

Type-Two Persona: Competitor, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Poetry slams
  • Short-story competitions
  • Tells tales of bravado
  • Campfire storytelling

A Bragger is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Competitor and Storyteller. A Bragger loves to tell stories of valour and and victory - particularly their own! Don't be put off, because a Bragger knows how to tell them, and sees the world in terms of the ebbs and flows of human successes and failures. While this can go too far, they may also show their persona through prolific writing or other creative narrative arts, and with that practice can come great expertise.

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:

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.

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!
