“Play is a state of mind, rather than an activity.” – Dr. Stuart Brown
This week we get ready for a new round of upcoming guests by exploring the eight “Play Personalities” from Dr. Brown’s book, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul. I look at the play personalities as a kind of menu. Some of them might be your usual comfort food while others are new and different, something you try to mix things up when you feel stuck. In the episodes to come, we’ll ask each guest about their play personalities and how they helped propel them into a lifestyle of play.
Resources mentioned in this episode:
- Read Stuart Brown’s book, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination and Invigorates the Soul.
- Listen to Howl, a podcast by novelist Eric Czuleger
