Treasure-Hunter

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Geo-caching
  • Searching for antiques
  • Flea-market scouring
  • Exotic collecting
  • Visiting unusual places, to tick them off

A Treasure-Hunter is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Explorer. Ah, the Treasure-Hunter! Most glamorous of play personas! And yet, those who don't follow this calling rarely realise how much hard work goes into it. Extensive research and - yes - much disappointment comes before something is to be found. It is also to be remembered that what counts as treasure for some may be junk for others. A Treasure-Hunter values their collection for itself, not for monetary worth, though frequently rarity plays some part. They also may enjoy travelling to far-flung reaches, as much to tick them off as for the place itself. But the sense of adventure that Treasure-Hunters exude is certainly real!

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.

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.
