Surfacing what people are curious about in other people
To introduce people in a way that deepens people's understanding of who the group is and to experience the many reasons people are curious and who they are curious about.
We want to spend a few minutes getting to know each other in perhaps a new way, or a more interesting way.
1. Take a few minutes think about the people you first remember. Give people a few minutes to think about these people.
2. Now write down the answers to two questions.
- a. Who are the first five people you were curious about?
- b. Why were you curious about them?
3. Would someone share a person they were curious about and why? Try to surface several answers.
4. What were your feelings (emotions) you experienced while listing these people?
5. What did you learn from these people?
6. How did they affect your life?
This can be a very powerful and sometimes scary session.
