Fun personality types are developed from play personalities written by Stuart Brown in Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul.

Fun Personality Type Best Practices

When it comes to fun personality types, there are things you need to remember so your new fun lifestyle is worth it to you:

Make it Intentional

Y’all know I’m a big fan of finding a workable balance of making creativity and fun valuable and intentional along with fun for fun’s sake. And this is soooo true for your fun personality type. For those of you who are goal-focused, intentionality is something you may be seeking with fun. But also, feel free to take it easy and chillll. All in your zone of fun, deemed by your fun personality type and profile.

Keep It Focused

When you’re just starting to get to know, connect, and reconnect to your fun personality type, don’t try to do anything and everything all at once. You have plenty of time and space to try new things. Remember – if you’re feeling burnt out, throwing a bunch of things in at once, can be especially overwhelming. And you’ll just leave so tired. Aw, that sounds so sad, doesn’t it? – so, don’t do that!

 Try New Things

At the same time though, don’t be afraid to try anything and everything fun and see what sticks! See what you love and are obsessed with – see what gets you excited and that spark lit up. As with any new license on life – we get to decide what we want it to be.
