Adjectives to describe yourself

 


Activity

Aim: Appoint a facilitator and begin assessing your individual communication profile.

To determine your communication profile, please refer to the following page. Pick 4-6 adjectives to describe yourself from the list on 6.2 and pick 1 adjective from the list for every other person to describe them.

Even if you do not know the other persons very well, you will already have formed a first impression based on your intuition. We’ve all heard about the importance of first impressions. The saying goes: “You don’t have a second chance to create a first impression.” Within a few seconds of meeting someone, we form an “impression” about someone. Those judgments may or may not be accurate, but they tend to endure. For this reason, you don’t need to know each other very well to give each other feedback.


Instructions for students:
Get together as a group, discuss the agenda and appoint a facilitator to guide the discussion. Read through the entire program and be prepared to keep the time. Don’t let the conversation drift.
