IGS 12 Self Perception Ms. Ripley
Self Perception Activity:
As a follow up to our talks on self identity and self image, we are going to explore,
reflect and share self-perspectives.
You are going to be asked to see yourself in relation to a series of pairs of words.
Each word will give raise to a pair of images, and you are to relate the images to the
way that you see yourself.
The word pairs are read out in turn. Give sufficient time for each other to note
their choices, and you should respond to FIRST impressions.
How would you describe yourself? Are you more like:
A cat or a dog?
Solid or liquid?
Monday or Saturday?
Green or orange?
Wool or nylon?
A jeep or a luxury car?
An eagle or a dolphin?
A boat or an aircraft?
A bunch of violets or a sunflower?
A clothesline or a kite string?
Sea or sky?
A radish or a strawberry?
As a partnership (or analyze other class members) reflect upon whether others
would have been able to guess their responses accurately. This can lead to the
likely accuracy and validity, or otherwise, of our perceptions of other people.
