Yogi

Type-Three Persona: Collector, Director, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Yoga instruction
  • Collecting games and sharing them
  • Leading sports teams
  • Daily exercise

A Yogi is a Type-Three Play Persona, combining Collector, Director and Kinesthete. A Yogi brings together and shares movements with their followers. They love to stretch, to dance, to play sports... but they're equally at home giving others the opportunity to do so. You'll know a Yogi amongst your friends, because they're the one who has a game for every occasion, a stretch for every ache, and knows exactly which part of your body and spirit every asana is good for!

Reflects traits of type-two personas:

Archivist

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Director

Favourite play activities include:

  • Organising
  • Alphabetising
  • Overseeing collections

An Archivist is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Director. Never happier than when organising, an Archivist loves order. They're the person you know who has strong opinions on how your clothes should be folded for storage, and can't understand how you can just fling them in the cupboard. They can always find items that they own, and may find it frustrating to be confronted with mysteries. This makes them persistent investigators, and great to have on your side when you want to get to the bottom of a puzzle.

Gymnast

Type-Two Persona: Collector, Kinesthete

Favourite play activities include:

  • Gymnastics
  • Yoga
  • Multiple sports
  • Wide games
  • Playground games

A Gymnast is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Collector and Kinesthete. A Gymnast is flexible, enjoys movement, and always wanting to find new and different ones. Gymnasts frequently play any number of different sports, or other activities that get them using their body. They're the ones who try every different variety of yoga, always wanting to add new positions to their practice, or who love to play all the different positions in the football team.

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:

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.

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.
