“What a blessing to have you on our campus at WinShape. We are so grateful for people like you who so generously give of their talents & abilities to influence others in such a positive way! Thank you for inspiring and challenging our staff…”

— Trudy Cathy White [WinShape Camps, Chick-fil-A]

SAME DIFFERENCE

 

Sit back, relax and have fun as you dig into the heart and mind of others.  Part of the process of determining your personality type has to do with understanding your learned behaviors and see who you really are inside, beyond your own self-image.  You’ll enjoy this session and discover we’re exactly the same difference!

 

 

INSIGHTS

     We are going to respond to a series of questions.  Every answer you give is absolutely right.  No one will question it.  Simply respond to what you hear.  You may answer any way you want- but you must answer.  You cannot ‘cop out’ by stealing someone else’s answer.  We will proceed around the circle, starting with a different person each time.  If you cannot think of an answer at your turn, say, ‘pass’ and the leader will come back to you later.

     Please, speak loudly so that everyone else can hear.  Try not to change your answer once you decide what it will be. Do not change to what you think will be a ‘more appropriate’ answer.  We can learn a great deal from facial expressions, hand movements, and body language, what people do not say, or hesitate in saying. We are interested in discovering good things about each other, in finding others’ real identity and personal strengths/characteristics. We will also discover more about ourselves!

     We must listen.  This is not a debate!  We are not here to disagree.  We are here to discover each other, as well as, learn a little more about ourselves.  Too often we defend our own little worlds without listening to all the hearts beating around us. As each person answers, collect those various answers in your mind and begin developing an idea of each person in the group.

     If we all do this, perhaps a few of our invisible boundaries will melt… and we’ll know each other better.
