Be honest if you want us to give you an accurate answer. All the best to you, and have a lot of fun!


You May Get

The Joker

You love to play pranks often to the delight of others. You can entertain, annoy and even level power imbalances with your mischief.  In your youth, you may have found social acceptance by making other people laugh and carried this into your adult years.

The Kinesthete

Kinesthetes are people who like to move. As Sir Ken Robinson said, "you need to move in order to think". Often dancers and athletes, you play best through movement as you enjoy pushing your body and feeling the result. Whether it's thorugh football, yoga, dance, running or exercise you love to move. While you may be in a team, it's not necessarily about competition - it's just a place to engage in your favourite activity.

The Explorer

While all of us began life by exploring our immediate environment, some of us continued their engagement and love to explore the new. Whether it's physically going to new places, discovering new feelings through our  familiar enviornment or having new experiences by researching new subjects or points of view from the comfort of your lounge-room. In these ways explorers remaincreative and spark their imagination. 

The Competitor

You're at your most playful when the competition is strong and the game has clear winners and losers. Competitors love to be number 1, top of the game. These games can be solitary or social, actively engaged in or observed on the sidelines. In social groups or in business, your 'play personality' appears when you can be 'the top person' where money or perks reward your behaviour.

The Director

Your idea of fun often involves planning parties and staging big events. Unknowingly, it's the power you get from directing the action that gets your motor running. As a born organiser, you love being the centre of what's happening. The down-side is that anyone else may be 'mere players' in your game. 

The Collector

Having the most interesting collection of objects and experiences delights you. Whether it's wine, shoes, toy trains, antiques, cars or travels to watch solar eclipses you methodically collect evidence and pride yourself on not ever missing one. Collects may enjoy their play as individuals or with others who share similar passions. Your quest is about the acquisition. 

The Artist

Creating beautiful things, or just things that work, drives your playful spirit.  Whether it's painting, sculpture, furniture making, sewing, knitting or gardening - the actions are all about creating beauty. You may end up showing your creations publicly or you may never show anyone what you make. That's not the point - for you it's the pleasure and joy of making, creating or getting something old and broken working again.

The Storyteller

Your imagination is the spirit of your stories where you can bring almost anything alive. You may love writing or creating stories , or enjoy getting immersed in reading the story and being carried along with the plot and the characters' emotions. You see the drama in events, playfully adding your own imagination to embellish and expand what others may see as the everyday. Even the simple act of cooking can be transformed into an imaginary televised production as you chop vegetables and create an inner dialogue.
