    Default A Type Game

    Here’s a little game. It is a game of self-discovery.

    There are no winners unless you count discovering something about yourself as a win. Okay…games need rules and since I made up the game I get to make up the rules [how juvenile does that sound?--- Don’t answer that!]

    How to play the game:

    List ten words that various people have used to describe you in the course of casual [or not so casual] conversation in your lifetime [preferably, your adult lifetime]. These should ideally come from people you know in a real-life scenario, i.e., family members, teachers, professors, friends, co-workers, etc.


    Now, here’s the ground rules:

    1.Before talking about yourself, comment on the post above yours. For example, say something like, “I can see that it would be fun to work with you.” Or, “I wouldn’t want to go shopping with you.” Or, "You, my dear, are a meglomaniac."

    2.Each trait listed must be just one word.

    3.If you’re the first one to go then you don’t have to mention anything about the poster above you .


    Okay, maybe this isn’t a game. Maybe it’s a social experiment, but humor me. The government won’t let me put people on an island and build my own ideal society. They won’t let me do genetic isolate experiments, either. I think it has something to do with that whole Hitler thing.

    Well, alright y'all, have fun and go at it.
    Now, okay, I await your lists.

    I don't understand. We're just supposed to list the nice things people have said about us, and the next person then agrees with those nice things?
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    No it doesn't have to be nice. Just list ten words that you have heard people use to describe you. They don't have to be nice; they just need to be words that have really been used to describe you by somebody who actually knows you, and the person after doesn't have to agree with you; they just comment on them before moving on to their list.

    For example, here's a list of traits.

    1. creative
    2. innovative
    3. imaginative
    4. calm
    5. deep
    6. militant
    7. humorous
    8. scary
    9. spiritual
    10. strategic

    Then, the next person might come along and say, "Really, I wouldn't have imagined you as scary." [or they can say "you're full of crap" or whatever they want to say]. Of course, people could then strike up a conversation, so long as they kept the lists going...get the idea? Just something I hoped would be fun.

    Sorry, Ginko...funny, cute, but wrong idea.

    What if we gave a list of traits and the next person had to guess who we were describing?

    That's the idea Webslinger! Great list, you sound like an IxFJ. haha

    Mane...yay...I'll share half my island with you if I ever get it, but nobody else, because you know...one island can't have too many masterminds on it. We could add "rebellious" to your list. I just made up the one word thing to help maintain focus and to make it a little more challenging. Also, I like your list of oxymorons. It shows the true nature of observers.

    Wind-up Rex,

    If we do that, maybe we should start another thread so that it would not be confusing as to who was doing what.

    Aleda,

    You're one tough kitty.
