Fun Seekers are people who are very good at finding pre-existing opportunities for potential fun and putting themselves in fun’s way, whether on their own or with other people. For example, Fun Seekers include people who are always signing up for classes, or finding concerts to attend, or who always know about great parties. (Fun Seekers tend to have very busy schedules!) The challenge for Fun Seekers is that they sometimes keep themselves so busy that they turn the pursuit of fun into a job—and then wonder why they feel exhausted. If you’re a Fun Seeker, it’s important to be careful not to overbook yourself, and to check in with yourself frequently to make sure that you’re truly enjoying the activities in which you’re participating; you don’t just want to stay busy for busy-ness’s sake.Want To Put Your Fun Type Into Action?

Fun Organizers are people who are masters of creating fun-generating experiences for other people—they’re the ones organizing parties, get-togethers, and events and going out of their way to help others have fun. if you're a fun organizer, you're probably very organized (and creative!) and enjoy logistics and planning. People often rely on you as a source of fun. One challenge for Fun Organizers is that they often put so much work into creating fun for other people that they don’t have fun themselves. If you’re a Fun Organizer, be sure to also seek out opportunities for fun that you don’t have to organize yourself—it can be nice to not be in charge once in a while!Want To Put Your Fun Type Into Action?

Fun Generators are people who are able to create fun no matter what the situation or context—they’re like human fun magnets! Often described as "The life of the party," you're the type of person whose presence at a dinner party or gathering guarantees that others will have a good time because you proactively do things that result in fun: you tell stories; you crack jokes; you put yourself out there and make other people feel at ease. If there’s any downside to being a Fun Generator, it’s that you may put so much energy into boosting other people’s energy that you end up feeling depleted yourself.Want To Put Your Fun Type Into Action?

Fun Accelerators are people who have a “yes, and” mindset that helps them keep the fun going once it’s begun. People who are Fun Accelerators aren’t necessarily going to seek out, organize, or initiate fun on their own, but once the fire of fun has been lit, Fun Accelerators are masters at feeding the flame. Fun Accelerators are the opposite of wet blankets: they go all in, and have playful attitudes that help other people feel comfortable and welcome in a way that helps them have fun. Easy-going and up for anything, they help maintain a spirit of playful energy and connection in a group. If Fun Accelerators have a weakness, it may be that they rely too heavily on other people to bring fun to them—which can lead to resentment from people who are doing the legwork.

Both will help you hone your ability to create more opportunities for fun, in addition to helping sustain fun that is already occurring.
