4 Types of People You Will Always Meet in Kingpin
At Kingpin, you will meet thousands of different personalities. They are fun, amusing and extraordinary. Yet all of them seem to fall into one of these 4 categories. We’ve prepared a handy cheat sheet to help you identify these categories next time you go to Kingpin. The question is: which one are you?
The Funny Kind
You will recognise The Funny Kind by their ability to make a ton of jokes and get the whole group laughing. Even if everyone has heard already the joke. Usually this personality type is surrounded by a squad who accepts them as they are, and it seems they have found their feet. Appearances can be deceptive – deep down this type just wants to fit in too. But there is no denying this type knows exactly how to be super-likable and be the star of the show. The Funny Type can be any age and any gender and you will want this type to be in your crew tonight.
The one who challenges everyone to compete and beat their score. Don’t let yourself be fooled, this person knows all the tricks to defeat anyone in game competition. With this person, you will end up playing a game that you didn’t sign up for and sweating it out only to get a little bit closer to his score. His motto is like the James Bond movie title: everything or nothing. Only one thing to remember: he never loses. Be aware of The Gamer you need to double your effort.
The Control Freak
Don’t get us wrong, this person is super organised and keeps things in order. We love the Control Freak. They know how much money your group spent, who owes who and when exactly your bowling ends and laser tag starts. This person usually comes prepared and knows the outcome of the evening before it’s even begun. Whether someone in the group has a few too many cocktails or someone loses a phone or credit card, this type always has an emergency plan. Even though The Control Freak might appear as though they aren’t having as much fun, you might find out that this person morphs into The Gamer after you introduce them to arcade games.
The Carefree Spirit
You Only Live Once is their motto and they are opposite to the control freak. The Carefree Spirit lives in the present and doesn’t think about what is coming tomorrow. If this type is friends with a control freak, it can be a disaster! You might expect that they don’t like each other; however, The Carefree Spirit will help the group make the most unforgettable memories that will get everyone laughing eventually. For now, you just have to put up with this type until the fun starts and you have found all the things this person ends up losing, their phone is usually first to be forgotten!
Whether you found yourself in this list or not, there is always room to add more. Make yourself familiar with these types and be prepared to identify their personalities next time you roll in Kingpin. Warning: some characters can quickly transform into each other, so you need to spend some time ‘birdwatching’ before you are qualified to identify them.
